Miami Music Week is a time where dance music lovers can expect the unexpected. It is a week where artists from all over the world gather different cultures and nationalities together as one for a big celebration. Nicky Romero & Friends hosted a one of a kind showcase at ORA nightclub in Miami that left people in attendance speechless and dancing until the break of dawn.
The showcase kicked off at 10:00 p.m. sharp with Antoine Delvig delivering a powerful house set that went back and forth from progressive to electro while incorporating some deep vibes here and there. Bodies were getting jacked left and right and the whimsical energy during his set was contagious. Disco Fries were up next and followed by slowing down the tempo a little when they dropped some tracks from their latest EP “DF”, which helped build an intimate feeling in the club while the lights were flashing off the ceiling bouncing off the confetti. It made for the all-time perfect Kodak moment.
The venue was the perfect playground for this event. The lights would dangle down blasting light and energy to all below. The club was full of people from corner to corner and the response from each set just kept building and building. Service that night was extremely friendly and willing to help navigate whenever needed. ORA Nightclub is no joke and one can get lose if they are not familiar with the club setting so this help from the staff was thoughtful during the event.
The main attraction of the night was of course no other than the man himself Nicky Romero, who is the founder of Protocol Recordings. The moment he took center stage the room lit up with cosmic energy and time stopped. This was the place to be the night before Ultra Music Festival because Nicky Romero was not holding anything back from going to house music into future bass. There was of course the huge surprise of Fedde Le Grand stopping by to throw down on the decks side by side with Nicky Romero & Friends. The love between not only the crowd but by the artists was refreshing.
The overall success of this showcase will be talked about for the rest of the year. This event did a phenomenal job by making sure the simplest of tasks were completed. They created a night before the big 20th anniversary of Ultra by providing an environment full of talent multigene artists that were looking to get the party started for Miami a night early. By providing boundless and friendly hospitality on top of that creates for the perfect storm. The post show depression is still kicking hard and all that is left are the memories and of course photos and videos. Until next time ORA Nightclub.

Miami Music Week is flooded with an array of events from the beginning of the week to the very end. With so many choices and artists to see sometimes people get half invested into each event because they are worried they may have chosen the wrong one to attend.
The Gorge is calling for the return of its citizens. Paradiso Festival just broke the internet by releasing their lineup and it was well worth the wait. A couple weeks back the three major headliners were announced as a little teaser before the big lineup announcement. DJ Snake, Armin Van Buuren, and Deadmau5 were announced causing an uproar of excitement and anticipation for the rest of the lineup.
All aboard! Space Yacht is making waves during their Miami Music Week 2018 takeover, where they will surely bring the underground Los Angeles scene to the sunny shores of Miami. Teaming up with DiscoLab, Space Yacht is bringing more than 15 artists and several secret guests to their two events during MMW. The legendary ‘ Space Yacht’ has evolved from a small show every Tuesday in LA to one of the biggest event productions in the city of L.A. or otherwise known as one of the world’s top hubs for music and entertainment.
