Link and Miami Rebels Present Three @ Trade – Thursday, June 12

If you’ve seen him anywhere in the world (but particularly at the Electric Pickle in Miami), the name Three needs no introduction. If you’re a stranger to the deep house/underground scene, you’re probably wondering who or what the hell he is. Three is the alias of Pittsburg-based DJ and producer Chris Milo.

Charles Webster @ Do Not Sit On the Furniture

British electronic music producer and DJ Charles Webster brings his talents to Do Not Sit On the Furniture this Thursday. Former head of record labels Remote and Love From San Francisco, the house legend is known for his jazz-influenced sound and his pioneering efforts in the UK deep house scene. He is now the head and owner of Miso Records and an artist globally sought-after for his unique and imaginative sets and cross-switch versatility. Ticket prices should range between $15-$30.

Just Dance presents Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano @ LIV

One of Miami’s favorite electronic music duos is back on the Beach, and what better venue to welcome them back than Miami’s crown-jewel of nightlife, LIV? From tribal to electro house, their signature blend of funk and rhythm have lit up dance floors across the globe. The guys behind hits such as “Lethal Industry,” “Tribeca,” and “Finally Here,” they’ve never failed to disappoint revelers with their exciting live performances. If you’re looking for a true VIP experience in a club that is known for making patrons feel like a million bucks, don’t miss them at LIV. Dress code is strict for both guys and girls. Tickets are $30 for females and $40 for males on LIV’s website.

DTF Thursdays @ Set

If you’re just looking for an open-format night to go party with friends, we recommend SET’s DTF Thursday party. It’s the place to get wild to some of the finest open-format residents on the beach. Cover is usually about $30, and tickets can be purchased at the door. Dress code is, as usual, strict club attire.

Also Consider: Juventon @ Kukaramakara, Little Dragon @ Grand Central, Bluejay @ Bardot, Future @ Story, Blaze & Johnny Cash @ Wall Miami

Friday, June 13

Link & Miami Rebels present Len Faki & Amirali @ Trade

Berlin-based DJ and producer Len Faki takes the stage with Crosstown Rebel Amirali this Friday at the one and only Trade nightclub in Miami. A resident at Berghain since its opening in 2004, Faki is the head and owner of imprints Figure Music and Figure SPC/Podium, and is considered on of techno’s present-day pioneers. Amirali, on the other hand, has proven himself one of Damian Lazarus’s most promising protegees. This summer predicts the launch of his own record label. Maybe we’ll even hear some of his forthcoming material at the party this Friday. If you’re looking for a low-key night of techno and dark beats, then this is your spot for the weekend. Once again, there’s no dresscode. Tickets are $15 on Wantickets, but you can receive a $3 off promo code if you share the event to your Facebook page.

12th Planet @ Mansion

There are those that claim dubstep and drum-and-bass are dying genres. Those people have obviously never been to a Miami nightclub to see 12th Planet perform. If you’re one of the naysayers, here’s your chance. The bass-heavy producer will once again grace the decks at Mansion this Friday. Rolling Stone recently named 12th Planet (aka John Dadzie) a “Los Angeles dubstep god,” and his SMOG Records label has been credited nationwide for spreading the British bass-movement to the states. Patrons can expect more than just womps and drops throughout the evening, though. 12th Planet has long been known for his variety and genre-blending style when working a set, which means the evening promises to be one of surprises. Tickets for the show are $30 and are available via Mansion’s website.

SKAM Artist DJS 10th Anniversary @ LIV

If you’ve ever sampled Vegas nightlife, you’ve probably heard of the name SKAM. For those Miami locals who don’t know much about the Strip, SKAM is one of the top booking and management agencies within the Las Vegas nightlife sphere. Short for Sujit Kundu Artist Management, SKAM has a roster of more than 60 artists of various musical backgrounds and tastes who have DJed at top notch clubs around the country. Their 10 Year Anniversary celebration has brought them all the way from Marquee LV to LIV on South Beach. Headlining this Friday at LIV are DJ Ross One, DJ Jessica Who, Crooked, Craig Anthony and Sean Perry. Expect ticket prices to fall somewhere between $30 and $75.

Also consider: Sam Pace @ SET, Mr. Mauricio @ WALL, Dirty South @ Story

Saturday, June 14

Link &  Miami Rebels Present Pete Tong & Dusky @ UndergroundStory

UndergroundStory is my favorite way to spend a Saturday night on South Beach. You have all the perks of an uber-posh mega-club, with none of the frivolity or superficiality that usually comes with most velvet-rope venues. Plus, the sound in that room when you have a techno or deep house artist on the decks is something otherworldly, to say the least. This Saturday, Story welcomes back two of dance music’s most talented maestros: EDM emcee and house legend Pete Tong, along with fellow Brits Dusky, who are known for their ability to navigate genres from dark techno beats to disco-influenced deep house within one seamless set. Expect plenty of grooves and a no-nonsense crowd of music aficionados. Tickets are $30 for girls and $40 for guys.

Quintino @ LIV

Dutch DJ and producer Quintino makes his way back to LIV this Saturday for a night that’s guaranteed to be a wild one. Known for his Dutch electro house style and high-energy sets, the founder of Dutch label SupersoniQ will no doubt leave patrons exhausted before the morning light. Factor in an out-of-this-world light show, bounteous amounts of confetti, and some of Miami’s most beautiful party-goers, and you’ve got the recipe for the kind of night out you only see in movies. Tickets are $40 for girls and $75 for guys on LIV’s website. Dress code will be strictly enforced.

The Martinez Brothers @ Mansion

If you remember the Kontrol parties Mansion used to throw every Thursday, then you remember how good house music sounds in that massive space. This Saturday, you can experience it again as Mansion plays host to the Martinez Brothers. Raised in the Bronx with a classical education in house music thanks to their father (think Paradise Garage circa 1979), the Martinez Brothers have established a name for themselves as leaders and taste-makers in the house music arena. Expect a lot of funk this Saturday night. Tickets are $30 on Mansion’s website, and dress code is strictly enforced.

Also Consider: Martinez Brothers After Hours @ Space, Savage Saturdays @ SET, Starf*cker Saturdays @ Mokai
