Jeremy Ellis (AKA Ayro) Bangs the Basel Gong at the Electric Pickle's Champion Sound Tonight

While certain parts of the Beach, Design District, and downtown get an exclusive, private, and totally off-camera Basel cash injection tonight, the Electric Pickle will be hosting a cheaper, open-to-the-public art party alternative -- Champion Sound.

Reupping in a big way, this weekly Wednesday throwdown has brought in Detroit bro, pianist/vocalist/MPC master Jeremy Ellis (AKA Ayro), to bang the Basel Gong all night long while Dhundee and Ynot fill the gaps.

As always, DJs A-Train and Maneuvers, plus fellow party residents Mr. Brown, Sire Esq., and Lumin will be there providing backup. But on the special guest tip: Local graff, street, and graphic artist Evan Poirier. Peep the stop-motion video below of the dude in action.

Jeremy Ellis (AKA Ayro) with Dhundee and Ynot, plus live art by Evan Poirier. Wednesday, December 1. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The party starts at 10 p.m. and there's no cover. Call 305-456-5613 or visit
