Oscar G: "Wynwood's Changed the Culture, I See a Different State of Mind in Miami"

Page 2 of 2

No doubt, it's true. Oscar is just as vital and relevant as he was in '96 or 2000 or 2004.

Year after year, he keeps headlining major WMC parties. He keeps cranking out solo tracks. He keeps ripping out new Murk material, like 2011's "Amame" and last year's "Die 4 U." He keeps killing the 305's top clubs, from Space to Bardot to Mansion. And he always keeps it fuckin' real.

You know, like that time he called out today's club culture and told Crossfade: "DJs are going to have to grow some balls."

Of course, even if Oscar has stayed hustling and remained fresh, he's still been around our city's EDM and indie scene since there wasn't a scene.

"It's been pretty incredible," he recalls. "There was freestyle and bass, and even some house that lived in gay clubs. But as far as all kinds of electronic and other music, you had almost nothing."

Now, though, Miami's a mecca. And this weekend, Oscar will be the OG on the new scene as part of Wynwood's III Points Festival.
