The event will kick off with a daytime Beach Party opened by a special B2B set between Australian powerhouses New World Sound and Uberjak’d as part of the Uberjak’d & Mates tour. The afternoon will continue with UK garage legend DJ EZ’s debut Miami Music Week performance, as well as sets from Caked Up who wrapped up their Neon Future Experience tour alongside Steve Aoki last week, Crookers who recently signed his forthcoming Sixteen Chapel album to Dim Mak, and label staple Deorro for a B2B2B performance with his PandaFunk proteges Dirty Audio and ZooFunktion.
The Beach Party also features sets from Dim Mak stalwarts Borgore and SBCR (aka The Bloody Beetroots), as well as impromptu appearances by Waka Flocka Flame throughout the day. Electronic supergroup 3 Are Legend will close out the Beach Party with their first performance of 2015 following a year spent dominating the decks at Creamfields, headlining Dim Mak’s 2014 TomorrowWorld stage and closing out the 2014 Tomorrowland main stage.
At 10 p.m. the doors to both our signature Up All Night after-hours affair and inaugural RUNNIN’ party will open, the former being held inside Nikki’s downstairs room and the latter taking place in Nikki’s exclusive upstairs room. Soundtracked by international house music artists like Shift K3Y (who will make his Dim Mak debut with a forthcoming single this summer), and Autoerotique, who will introduce a slew of unreleased records highlighting his new sonic direction, Up All Night will also host label frequenter Yolanda Be Cool, up-and-coming future house producers Shaun Frank and Panic City, and Ghastly whose recent “Every Night” release on Dim Mak’s free music imprint New Noise received critical acclaim on Billboard, UKF and Dancing Astronaut.
The Dim Mak showcase will also mark the debut of Dim Mak’s new underground event brand RUNNIN’, launching at 10 p.m. with a takeover by Amine Edge & DANCE’s CUFF imprint curated by veteran beat-makers A-Trak and Felix Da Housecat.
Dim Mak’s Miami party is notorious for hosting secret guests like Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Carnage, Lil Jon and DJ Snake, so this year’s event is sure to be flooded with surprise appearances and rare back-to-back action. Attendees can expect secret guest performances by some of today’s biggest acts, day and night across all three rooms, as well as a very exclusive surprise house set by one of Dim Mak’s staple artists (who will it be?!)
Get pumped for our Dim Mak Miami madness with a one-hour mix curated by Autoerotique and Max Styler featuring music from the party’s stacked roster of talent.
