Since launching in 2009, the Miami Dance Party website has emerged as one of Miami's premier sources for local underground EDM. The weekly podcast showcases guest mixes by a bevy of local DJs and producers, from Miami staples like DJ SpinnZinn of 90.5 WVUM to resident favorites at hotspots like the Electric Pickle and Space.
Intent on guiding Miami through the scene, the website now features an events calendar that EDM lovers can use to piece together their nightlife adventures.
Miami Dance Party has also expanded into the area of events and bookings, beginning with quite a turnout for its one-year anniversary party headlined by world-renowned DJ-producer Kate Simko at Ecco Lounge this past November.
Next Saturday, MDP will be returning to the swank downtown venue to host an exclusive performance by Detroit DJ-producer Eric Johnston. The budding international star boasts a slick funked-up brand of minimal tech-house with releases on über-chic labels like Wolf + Lamb, Leftroom, and Cityfox. Support sets will be provided by MDP resident Justin Ryan, along with Baez, Hardline, and Far1.
