Move over Electric Area there is a new station in town. During Miami Music Week Diplo decided to host a launch party for his new station on SiriusXM called “Diplo’s Revolution,” which would be replacing Electric Area Ch. 52. The launch party was an invite only event and Exposed was honored to be extended an invite for this lavish party.
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.

SPACE YACHTTHE SOUND OF THE UNDERGROUND
Posted by SPACE YACHT on Tuesday, January 2, 2018
The first event, SAYMYNAME and Friends, will be Wednesday, March 21 at C&L Warehouse, where BAILO, Blunts and Blondes, Dack Janiels, GRAVEDGR, Jayceeoh, Ricky Remedy, Rickyxsan, and Skellism will be bringing the bass in support of SAYMYNAME in the graffiti-laden Wynwood district. The show kicks off at 11pm and is welcoming to all guests 18+. Tier 1 tickets are already sold out so we would highly recommend grabbing tickets shortly.
Next stop is Friday, March 23 at 1306 Miami where show-goers can expect a deeper house vibe from BIJOU, Dombresky, LondonBridge, and Wax Motif. However, bass fans have nothing to fear as Nitti Gritti will be supplying the 808’s at the 21+ speakeasy-style bar, where doors open at 10pm.
Do not get left behind on this voyage into sound, as tickets are selling out quickly. Tickets for both Space Yacht shows are available at http://to.spaceyacht.net/go/miami
Brownies & Lemonade are the perfect combinations on a hot summer day. However, these Brownies & Lemonade are not edible and have nothing to do with food or drinks. The question that usually speculates “what is Brownies & Lemonade?” Now, this may come to a shock to everyone reading this but Brownies & Lemonade is actually an organization that focuses on SoundCloud artists and they curate the ultimate party lineup for everyone in attendance. No one truly knows who will be at that party until they release the lineup. Caught your attention now? Good, because there are way more details about Brownies & Lemonade that Exposed is happy to share.
LA-based party Brownie & Lemonade’s all-day stage takeover will be taking place at Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary. Kush Fernando, the founder of Brownies & Lemonade, throws parties that actually focus on Soundcloud artists who might be underlooked by big names in the dance music industry. Jose Guzman, co-founder of L.A. events group Brownies and Lemonade, would host outrageous college parties with Kush left and right. They kept the party going on to college because they deeply loved creating the experience and bringing the vibes together. Unfortunately, money was a huge issue and it was an obstacle that they needed to overcome. They overcame this challenge by visiting Soundcloud, which is a huge outlet for artists to broadcast their music on and focused booking lesser-known names through that platform and priced the tickets at a low cost so everyone could afford the party.
The party circulates to a younger crowd and to the whole “party vibe” instead of the typical vibe one would feel at a show or festival. It unites party people together and helps generate that old school feeling of a house party while creating a judgment free zone and leaving all the BS at the door. Skrillex, Anna Lunoe, Jai Wolf, Nina Las Vegas, Manila Killa, Mark Johns, Shawn Wasabi, CRNKN, and more have strongly supported this organization and have even played at a couple of the parties. That is what sets Brownies & Lemonade apart from any other organization. No matter how big the scene gets they never forget the roots of where this all came from and that is in direct correlation to the party scene. The party scene has helped dance music and djing evolve drastically over the years and Brownies & Lemonade found a way to glorify that.
Brownies & Lemonade is all about keeping the secrets from getting exposed and we respect that. So, this is all the information that Exposed can share and provide at this moment. However, we will share the lineup they have curated for Ultra Music Festival. There will also be a link for a documentary that goes into more depth about the organization and it is worth the watch. Do not sleep on Brownies & Lemonade because this is the best-kept secret that is sure to be Exposed in Miami. Never be afraid to explore different names or brands in music because it can lead to some great finds.
