2. Defected In The House Miami 2014
Mixed by three of house music's fastest rising stars: Andrea Oliva, Paolo Rocco and NICe7, this comp pairs perfectly with Defected's taste making reputation. On the first disc, Andrea Oliva kickstarts the mix with Konstantin Sibold's remix of "I Can See". He then warms us up with some smooth and groovy deep house with a little bit of vocal dipped here & there until he finally builds the mix all the way up to Tale Of Us' remix of Primative People to finish the mix off.
Up next on the 2nd disc making his debut with the Defected stable is Paolo Rocco. He takes us on a journey here through plenty of classic tunes out of Detroit and even some newer ones all mixed all in. Some highlighted artists include Ame, Seth Troxler, Subb-an, Larry Heard, & Mr G!
Last but not least is Italian duo Nice7 who kick off their mix with Henrik Schwarz' beautiful remix of "From The Inside" by Chasing Kurt. From there on out they give us some tech, some jacking, and some deep house all perfectly blended together for a storming upbeat mix perfect for the Miami sun.
3. Ministry Of Sound's Miami Sessions 2014
When it comes to music compilations, no one really has a better reputation than Ministry of Sound. Their Miami Sessions 2014 leaves nothing desired, mixing up some of the more commercial and underground sounds with impeccable ease. Featuring tracks and exclusive edits from Huxley, Green Velvet, Diplo, Tritonal, Hard Rock Sofa, Michael Woods, Booka Shade and more, this comp gives a good overview of the sounds you'll hear coming out of the clubs if you were to walk down Collins Ave in the early, early morning.
