Deadbeats Went Off the Deep End in Miami

by Mike Fillare 1 year ago

If someone who was in Miami for Miami Music Week this year told you they couldn’t find anything to do, they are straight up lying. There was never a shortage parties, DJ sets, or events going on during the famed week leading up to Ultra.

Among the slew of ragers that were going on each day there was one party I’m glad I didn’t miss, Deadbeats Off the Deep End. If you were planning on seeing Zeds Dead at Ultra, you might have been disappointed once it was announced they were no longer on the bill so hopefully you were able to score some tickets to this MMW event as the lineup featured Zeds Dead, Jauz, Ghastly b2b Mija b2b NGHTMRE, and Troyboi, b2b Herobust, b2b Grandtheft.

I’ve said it before but to me there is nothing better than a massive warehouse party and that’s exactly what it was. With a packed crowd headbanging from 10:00pm to 5:00am, you would never guess that everyone had probably been partying for the past four days during other MMW parties.

The energy was absolutely unreal with Ghastly, Mija, and NGHTMRE setting the tone early on. Jauz stepped up next and having seen him drop a filthy set a week or two before in NYC, it was great to see him again only this time going b2b with these other DJs. Last but not least, Herobust, Troyboi, and Grandtheft took the stage and gave those in the crowd a second wind for those who were feeling weary by 3:00am.

It was evident that all of the DJs didn’t pre-plan any of their sets; they had an idea of their track lists but really felt the crowd and played according to that. One thing I also noted having been backstage is the genuine comradery and friendship among all of the DJs. Overall, Deadbeats Off the Deepend was a helluva night and was definitely the perfect lead-in to the first day of Ultra.
