Miami Dance Party Web Site Showcases Local EDM Talent

When Detroit native DJ Justin Ryan moved to Miami last year he didn't know anyone involved in the local EDM scene, so he got proactive. Seeking to connect with other local artist while establishing a structured outlet for his own productions, Ryan launched Miami Dance Party, a website featuring regular podcasts by local DJs and showcasing a broad variety of EDM sounds, from progressive and tribal house to minimal techno.

MDP already boasts a solid archive of exclusive mixes by Miami staples like DJ SpinnZinn of 90.5 WVUM, PL0T residents Michael Christopher and Basti, and Nocturnal regular DJ Kirk Jon, who is also Ryan's promotional partner. Intent on providing Miami with a platform for local artists to gain some exposure while offering dance music lovers new sounds, MDP is always looking for new content and encourages new submissions.

You can check out the Miami Dance Party podcasts directly at the site, or subscribe through the iTunes store.
