Miami may not have completely shed its reputation as a party mecca, even for its full-time residents. But with cats like DJ Manuvers coming up and taking over, we might one day also be known for our work ethic.

Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020 / 8:00pm @ Hard Rock Live At The Seminole Hard Rock HotelManuvers' sound has all the energy of hip-hop (his "first love"), but its soar is all soul. That means you're as likely to hear Tom Browne's classic "Funkin' for Jamaica" as you are Q-Tip's more modern "Let's Ride." You'll also hear a whole lot of the music that Manuvers is making these days, which seems to be intent on making Miami the mecca it once was, way back during the glorious heyday of TK Records.And that, of course, takes work. Again, Manuvers' work ethic is very un-Miami -- well, at least not like what Miami's best been known for, anyway. He rises early, and he works late. And he hasn't waited for a door to open since he learned how to kick them in.Our town could do with more guys like Manuvers. Until that time, though, we can at least be assured there's one head-spinner among us who'd not afraid to put in the hours it takes to reach greatness. It's something to consider next time you hear the soul-drenched sound of this man on the move. Then again, knowing how much play Manuvers is making for himself, you've probably already heard it - and given him the consideration he deserves.Manuvers' Top Five Current Songs:1. "I Need a Dollar," Aloe Blacc2. "Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)," Erykah Badu3. "Exhibit C," Jay Electronica
