"Before Adam and Eve, God created disco and cats -- God was Spanish, of course," say the Young Hearts. Sounds like the kind of God who could have created Miami -- America's tropical, hedonistic disco Garden of Eden.
Disco cats are the concept behind Gato y Disco, Young Hearts' exclusive WMC event and another definite booking triumph for the local scene newcomers. They hit the ground running just this past summer with their first monthly parties and in record time have converted a sizable following through the sheer quality of their musical programming.
Past bookings have included nü-disco and deep-house champions like Tiger & Woods, Morgan Geist, and Nicolas Jaar. And despite alternating between radically different venues like the Delano Beach Club, Mondrian Hotel, Bardot, and Electric Pickle, there's a special, intimate feel-good vibe that follows their nights wherever they go.
Sure enough, the lineup Young Hearts has in store for Gato y Disco is nothing short of sensational. They've hand-picked some of the most hotly tipped acts on the international dance music scene with an emphasis on live performance, making them ideal for the intimate confines of Bardot.
Azari & III, PillowTalk and Tensnake all bring their own deep, blissed-out spins on house and boogie, which they will serve up live at Gato y Disco. And even though that's enough awesomeness to make this party your prime destination on March 20, it doesn't stop there. DJ sets by hot international up-and-comers Jozif and Mano Le Tough are also on the bill.
"Sly, sexy creatures of the night combined with relentless, heavenly grooves from some of our favorite artists in the world -- the warmth and energy of Miami Music Week," Young Hearts promises.
"Release your inner feline."
