In the wee hours of March 24 2018 the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix was broadcasted live from Miami, Florida. This epic highlight from Miami Music Week showcased The Black Madonna b2b Honey Dijon for the first hour and slid into The Martinez Brothers b2b Joseph Capriati for the second hour of the broadcast.
The extremely popular ladies from Chicago, The Black Madonna and Honey Dijon brought nothing but love out for their first back to back together. Both masters of blending genres dubbed their combination “Black Honey.” They played an extravagantly fun, expertly mixed, modern, funky, house and disco set that turns into a tech filled ride. It will get you cranking, smiling, and full of energy. Playing tracks from Marlena Shaw, Cajmere, Kornel Kovacs, Silvano Del Gado, and Kings of Tomorrow, this duo will get you moving.
The iconic house duo from New York, The Martinez Brothers, paired up with Italian techno titan Joseph Capriati to release more heat down upon Miami. The Martinez Brothers signature tech house remixes were ablaze and bouncy as ever. The tech house selections from Joseph Capriati were extremely welcoming in the set, and showcased a different side of him and the banging techno that many are used to him bringing to the dance floor. Masters of the build up, this pairing brings us sky high too many times to count, before dropping us like an anvil right into a mesmerizing, sweaty frenzy. Tracks from Santos, The Dirty Brothers, Volkoder, Max Chapman, Vincenzo D’amico, and many others lit this mix on fire.
