When people think about Miami, they have images of South Beach, Ocean drive and women in bikinis…but there is another Miami, the one with Wynwood, The Arts District, a total different vibe. When it comes to music, you will also hear very opposite stuff from Ocean Drive to Wynwood, not so far from the latter is located Little Havana and Calle Ocho, an area that Oscar G appreciates a lot for its Cuban heritage. This edition of Miami Talents gives a voice to that other Miami house music fans should know about. Far from the Ferraris, the VIP tables and the beach, Wynnwood & Downtown Miami are homes to venues like Space, Club Heart and Coyo Taco. Over there, Oscar & friends deliver their Tech-house, always with a subtle touch of afro-cuban-house. This type of jam we can say you most likely have never heard before! Also, we decided to travel a bit up north to feature the soulful house of Atnarko and the vibes of Adam foster, both giving away a Free Download.
It seems like thousands of years ago that Lazaro released “Pop That pussy” on Oscar G’s label Murk records. Since then he appeared on Nervous records for collab with him and they are now launching their new project “Made in Miami”.
Lazaro’s title “Calle Ocho” is a groove based tune with stunning percussions and drums. The song starts with a strong kick and features later on a Spanish vocal quite subtle and entertaining, well done!
Atnarko is proudly representing the underground dance music scene in Florida, playing along side Seth Troxler in Detroit and signed on imprints like Noir Music and Robsoul. His versatile talent made him work with D’nB hero AK1200 and House diva DJ Heather. Today he’s pairing up with his friend JusJason for a Deep tune called “Feed Your Head”, a vintage sound with sublime fx and vocals. Any true Deep House fan world wide should get this in his bag, such a beauty.
Jesse Perez runs that really cool label called Mr Nice Guy records, which celebrated its 5-year anniversary recently. Jesse’s hard work and dedication seems to be paying, he caught fire with a release on German legendary label Bpitch Control –Ellen Alien’s imprint and he is now back on Mr Nice Guy Records with “Fake”. The tune was played last week on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Show, quite a pedigree to say the least.
Fake is no G-House, it’s no Tech-house either…it’s Jesse Perez! It’s groovy and features vocals saying “booties, nose, tit*es” and a vocal screaming…”Faaaaaake”, as Annie puts it “Yeahh this is so good!”
Adam is based in a suburb of Miami most people don’t know about Fort Lauderdale. The man is no beginner in the game, with his productions being played by the likes of Tiesto, A-Trak and more. Adam spoiled us with a delicious Free Download named “Jealous” a tune in between House and Nu-Disco, very efficient on the dance-floor!
Archila appreciates dark techno & tech-house. The young producer is making a name for himself in Miami playing at clubs like Heart, Space and Treehouse. We find him in full form for this release named “The Recipie” out now on Cedez Music.
