Miami doesn’t always have the best press, some say it’s fake, some say it’s money driven. This might be partially true but it will not apply to any of the artists mentioned below. Take the uncontested Miami’s favorite DJ, Oscar G. The man has played at Space every Saturday for 10 years, this is a real as it gets. If you ever walk in the streets of Little Havana, a colorful neighborhood a few minutes away from downtown, you will feel, hear and see the real Miami Oscar is all about.
Let us take you to the world of some of the best Miami producers, accomplished artists and rising talents, Miami has actually a lot to offer. You want to hear about the Latin & Cuban heritage? Check out George Acosta’s latest tune “Magic Carpet Ride”. You like the Dirtybird sound? Middath has arrived with “Choppin N Cuttin”. We included the first EP by Valentin Huedo “Atlantis” released via Do Not Sit on The Furniture Records, the acclaimed Miami Beach nightclub where the true fans of house music hang out for the love of house music, not for the VIP tables…
OSCAR G – Steel Love
Oscar is once again defying genres with this solid release. “Steel Love” is housey, it’s Afro, Tropical and of course we do hear the Cuban influences from the Miami #1 DJ. "Steel Love" is out via his own imprint Made in Miami Records, exclusively on Traxsource.
GEORGE ACOSTA – Magic Carpet Ride
Did you say latin? “Magic Carpet Ride” features Latin vibes with some strong house music drums. The trumpets take you very far into the essence of what Miami is about, Salsa and a mix of different heritages. George Acosta’s latest tune is available via Sogood Music
MIDDATH – Choppin N Cuttin
Middath is becoming a regular of Miami Talents. Previously releasing music on Audiophile we find him in full form on Billy Kenny’s This Ain’t Bristol with “Choppin N Cuttin” and the vocal is addictive.
VALENTIN HUEDO – Atlantis – Do Not Sit
Valentin Huedo delivers the first release for the new Miami label Do Not Sit On The Furniture records so we had to give them a shout out! If you like Behrouz and his Burning Man vibes, Atlantis EP is for you.
Orchid – Used Disco (DAN.K remix)
Dan K is showing some skills once again with a remix of "Used Disco," the recipe is quite simple but also quite efficient, a trippy pad, a beautiful keyboard arrangement and a strong organic bass taking you from underneath. “Used Disco” is out exclusively via Traxsource with Orchid on the original.
LUIS PONCE DE LEON - Carousel
If you like Tech House, Luis Ponce De Leon’s latest tune will make you smile. “Carrousel” is a funky ballad layered with uplifting synths and featuring strong drums. Ponce De Leon is an emblematic figure of Miami’s history, let’s have Luis make history as well! “Carousel” is out via Tres 14 Music.
CHRIS DEZZ, SEBASTIAN PAIZA – Verano EP
Let’s go minimal with Chriss Dezz & Sebastian Paiza’s new Verano EP. It includes two original tracks "Alligator Alley" and "Ode tu Udo." Both tracks were inspired by the use of percussive instruments like cajon and congas. This full EP includes Alan Castro and Coriesu on remix duties.
MATT POSTREL – AMBN
Matt Postrel makes his debut on Kindish records with AMBN, but B-side “Breath” is our favorite, the stabs used are trippy, the pads are breath taking.
TRONCOSO – “More Aliens, Less Humans”
Troncoso is back on Miami Talents with “More Aliens, Less Humans”. His track is a tech house minimalistic jam which will work on any dancefloor world wide. “More Aliens, Less Humans” is out on Troncoso’s imprint Prisoner of Love records.
DORAL SOCIAL CLUB - Covfefe
We close Miami talents with the latest banger from Made in Miami records. Doral Social Club goes strong with “Covfefe” perhaps referring to a Reality-TV-Star-Turned-President using the word on twitter. As the lyrics suggest “What is Covfefe?”, then more vocals add “Covfefe is a state of mind!”
