Right now, Miami, Florida is bracing for its annual dance music invasion. For one sleepless week (23-30 March), the city will come alive with pool parties, surprise sets, invite-only showcases and after-hours raves. Then of course there’s Ultra Music Festival, the gargantuan weekender that’s bringing just about every DJ in the game out to Bayfront Park.
As much as it’s a blur of parties (and eye-watering drink prices), Miami Music Week is also a testing ground for the tracks that’ll go on to dominate summer. Whether it’s the latest mainstage anthem debuted at Ultra or a 4am techno burner, Miami’s all about new music.
With that in mind, we put a simple question to some of our favorite Miami-bound artists: What track will have everyone talking this year? We wanted to hear from a wide spectrum of dance music believers, from Nervo and Sander van Doorn to Sasha and Guy Gerber. Read on to hear the tracks they’re backing this time around.
