On Saturday, March 24 during Miami Music Week, 1-800-Lucky will entertain a unique event: AMFAMFAMF Presents BREAKFAST CLUB. Known for his excellent music curation as a major event organizer and recording artist DESTRUCTO will host the early morning party stacked with surprises. The 21+ event will kick off at 5:00 a.m. and stretch past sunrise to 10:00am.
Since its opening this past November, 1-800-Lucky, a 10,000 square foot Asian Market Place in Miami’s trendsetting Wynwood arts district has become one of the hottest spots in town. For BREAKFAST CLUB, it will be transformed into a morning dance party with DESTRUCTO-hot off his “Let’s Be Friends” tour-and all his friends. Various vendors from the market will open early for breakfast treats and cocktails.
Mere weeks after docking a successful expedition to the Bahamas, the world’s largest floating dance party, Groove Cruise Miami announces the booking window for their 15th anniversary. Groove Cruise Miami returns next year, and will set sail January 10-14, 2019, departing from Miami and will travel through Key West and Cozumel, Mexico.
The ultimate party cruise will offer up an epic nautical adventure to whet the palates of bold partiers from across the globe. Over 50 artists are expected to board the new luxury ship called the Celebrity Infinity, which will provide a new experience in anticipation of the annual charter, introducing central theme for 2019 as The Compass. Whether fulfilling relationships or exotic destinations, this beacon will leave the ship seared into the hearts of every last captain that disembarks.
Known for its clear, turquoise waters, vibrant snorkeling, and culinary delights, Cozumel will add an extra layer of travel and culture to Groove Cruise’s famously impressive itinerary. The Groove Cruise family will also be making a stop in Key West, an intimate island hub. Rolling out further initiatives to heighten the peak experience Groove Cruise Miami delivers, the ship will now depart from the port of Ft. Lauderdale. What was once an arduous cab ride from airport to port is now direct; GC Fam will be able to travel from plane to boat in a matter of minutes.
Groove Cruise’s policy of an all-inclusive vibe invites revelers of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to come aboard for 96 hours of nonstop music, dancing and exploration on the tropical high seas of the Mayan Riviera. Set aside quick judgements and assumptions, to live fully and love wholly, and to party your aft off. Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 15 at 2 P.M. EST.
A special Halloween weekend kicked off in Miami with the popular Wynwood Fear Factory on Oct. 28 and Oct. 29th at the RC Cola Plant. Not only did thousands of ravers attend the two-day festival with haunted attractions and a mainstage with some of the hottest acts, but 100% of proceeds went to Global Empowerment Mission in light of the natural disasters that have occurred in the Southeast U.S.
On day one, despite the rain, music lovers without a doubt enjoyed their favorite artists such as Porter Robinson, The M Machine, Cedric Gervais, Andrew Rayel, Bad Royale, Madds, Dave Sol b2b Unomas and Kyro! b2b Eric Arraoyo. On the second day, due to weather conditions from the previous day, performances were switched around with a back-to-back performance by Oliver Heldens and Fedde Le Grand. The day continued with other special performances by GG Magree, Drezo, 3LAU, Martin Solveig, Yellow Claw, Big Gigantic and DJ Snake.
Aside from the music, many attendees got in the spirit of Halloween dressing up in fun costumes, enjoying crazy graffiti art and delicious food. The graffiti art added an urban vibe for everyone to get into the spirit of the spooky holiday. Despite all the tropical storm warning on day one, that didn’t stop South Florida from having fun, even though the gates opened two hours later.
After all the rain, day two was perfect with the sunshine and temperature being in the mid 70’s. Unfortunately DJ Snooko b2b with Loky were unable to play, but the event kicked off with DJ Sub Zero. Yellow Claw’s set was still a bass lovers’ dream despite the lights going off. At one point one member from Yellow Claw stood on the table and held their phone over the controllers, just so the other could keep playing. Now that’s team work, and the party kept going.
DJ Snake ended the night with a fire set, and while the power and sound went off on the stage right at the beginning of his set, that didn’t stop him at all. He started over and jumped back up on the table and started dancing to get the crowd going.
Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf admitted that this is their first “big tour” that they’ve done in over three years, and “it’s going to be a culmination of over a year of planning and creating.” The sister-duo have already made stops in cities such as Nashville, Dallas, Austin, Houston, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Chico, Denver, Kansas City, St Louis, Atlanta and most recently Miami.
Although the show had a last minute change from The Fillmore Miami Theater to The Ground Miami (Club Space), stage production and high-energy levels was nothing short of amazing. In fact, my neck still hurts two days later from head-banging so hard, and I’m not even mad about. On Friday night, Oct. 20th, Krewella put on a show like they’re at a festival, and got the crowd singing along their loudest to every song. From their hit singles “Alive” and “Live For The Night,” to “Broken Record” and “New World” featuring Yellow Claw, the girls performed numerous popular tracks from their first album to their last EP.
The girls came out for an encore performace of “Team” and Yasmine even rapped their Krewella rendition of “Old Kanye,” which was something that only the core Krew fans understood. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a chilling campaign shower from Jahan, mosh pits and sweaty hugs with the fans during their meet and greet.
Zeds Dead recently announced that they will be going on a North American Deadbeats tour, stringing along a special lineup of other DJs.

Grammy-nominated DJ/producer, Steve Aoki, is getting ready to launch his upcoming album, Kolony, on July 21. As he performs around the world, the king of caking has been teasing fans with sneak peeks with tracks from his new project.
Aoki recently make a stop in Miami at club Story on June 30 and he had the crowd going with tracks from his upcoming album such as “Without You,” and his recently released single, “LIT,” with Yellow Claw featuring Gucci Mane and T-Pain. The chorus for “LIT” features T-Pain invoking Queen’s “We Are The Champions” and Gucci Mane rounds it out with a verse.
Story, which is located in South Beach, was packed from the front to the back with fans jumping and singing along to the lyrics of Aoki’s tracks such as “Just Hold On” featuring Louis Tomlinson and “Turbulence.”
It wouldn’t be a Steve Aoki party without a lot of cake! The DJ smacked six lucky fans in the face with a large sheet of vanilla cake while his popular track, “Cake Face” played.
Aoki released his first single “Without U” with DVBBS featuring 2 Chainz from his upcoming album. Another track called “Night Call” captured the audience’s attention with rap’s hottest trio Migos featuring Lil Yachty, which is also featured on Kolony. The album is an amalgamation of party-cranking tracks that stretch across the boundaries between EDM and rap music, landing on something in between and adding supplemental flavor.
This project marks Aoki’s first full turn into rap music, with nearly 10 years of hip-hop collaborations, which he describes as “bridging the gap” between genres.
