Good Times Miami WMC Edition

Diet Radio got the priveledge to attend Good Times in Wynwood for WMC 2014. The location, lineup and amenities made this one of WMC’s most refreshing events hands-down. Nestled in a half-outside-half-inside venue, GOOD TIMES brought the likes of Zeds Dead, Skrillex, Benny Benassi, Amtrac and Chance the Rapper. What really made this music festival unique was the B2B delivery. Yes, major djs were spinning back to back, or basically at the same time, something I have definitely not witnessed […]

Gnarls Barkley is Reuniting “Next Year”

While getting off of a plane, the oh-so-chic Cee-Lo was recently bombarded by paparazzi and one of them inquired about his collaboration project with Danger Mouse and if the two of them had any chance of re-uniting. By our surprise and complete satisfaction, his answer was YES, “like next year.” Not only is Cee-Lo Green a great performer and musician, his project with equally as talented Danger Mouse brought listeners  the one and only Gnarls Barkley, and we were lucky enough to […]

Darkside

This year marked the 10-year anniversary for Art Basel Miami Beach and no different from any of the previous years, there were an abundance of concerts, performances and exhibits all throughout the city of Miami. With so many things to see and do it was difficult to capture it all without a solid itinerary. Luckily, I was able to catch one of my favorite young producers, Nicholas Jaar. Nico and Dave Harrington performed for the first time in Miami as […]

Art Basel Review: Return to Dreamtime at Moksha Gallery

A week later, Basel is still lingering in the streets, and in our heads. Not only were the areas of Wynwood, Miami Beach, and Downtown Miami overflowing with good (and bad) art, but there were also tons of great music acts and djs that came to the magic city of Miami, leaving us music fiends a bit confused and scratching our heads as we attempt to create a solid “Basel Itinerary.” Throughout indulging in the entire experience that is Art […]

La Sopita #3: Mitú at Bardot

Thanks to Heineken, Bardot and hostess Camila Alvarez, La Sopita (on its third series) was a great success, adding something truly special to the flourishing music scene in Miami. Bringing together traditional Colombian drums and electronic elements, Mitú brought a unique sound and vibe to Bardot last Wednesday. Almost difficult to describe, Mitú’s sound is a combination of percussionist Frankie Tejedor and Julian Salazar’s talent. With their high energy and dance oriented sounds, Mitú had the crowed moving and clapping […]

Connan Mockasin Releases New Album: Caramel

If you’ve ever experienced any of Connan Mockasin’s songs or music videos, you know quite simply, he really is the trip. His music is spacey yet upbeat and has a sultry vibe to it, he is quite the feminine dude (reminds me of Prince.) He’s about to release a new album titled Caramel on November 4th, 2013. His last album “Forever Dolphin Love” got him attention from the music world and fellow musicians. The 10-minute rework by Erol Alkan really […]
