Grab it below and we’ll see you in Miami!

In the midst of the madness next week in Miami, Skrillex and the OWSLA crew have assembled a mini-festival of sorts over two days in the arts district of Wynwood in Downtown, bringing together an unprecedented lineup of B2B sets over two days on Wednesday and Thursday. In addition to the massive amount of music, GOOD TIMES Miami will also feature the first-ever Leisure Sports Tournament, featuring all your favorite artists playing all sorts of ridiculous outdoor games.

We have 3 pairs of tickets to give away to the event, which you can enter to win via the Punchtab widget below. The more you share, the more likely you’ll be to be one of the 3 winners picked on Monday. Good luck!

Perseus and his French Express label mates are no strangers to our weekly party in Miami, and the man in charge of the dynamic pack is back on the carpet at Bardot tonight alongside the trio of residents. After storming onto the scene late in 2011, the French Express name has found respect in the underground markets while also having that cross-over appeal that’s seemingly difficult to accomplish. Pre-sale tickets for tonight’s event are still available here. Continue Reading

Duke Dumont stormed onto the radars of the entire dance community towards the back half of last year with his chart topping hit ‘The Giver‘ and has not stopped in 2013. He rifled back with a banging Essential Mix on BBC1 as well as reaching the #1 spot on iTunes in the UK with a massive bomb ‘Need U 100%.’ Next Tuesday, he graces the carpet at Bardot in Miami for our weekly Slap & Tickle party alongside residents Troy Kurtz, Santiago Caballero, Panic Bomber, and Pirate Stereo.

Tickets: $15

Doors: 10 pm

Duke Dumont – ’20 Ways To Jack’ – Chicago House Minimix for Annie Mac by Duke Dumont

LIL DEATH, the distopia-done-right party that every cyberpunk in LA has darkly adored is coming to Miami this week, with a stacked lineup full of longtime GDD favorites.  Our friends The OverthrowTrouble & Bass, and Paris’ Bromance Records are all involved to bring you a very special night of Tech Noir vibes straight out of Gotham, with a very special guest.

What’s more?  All this can be yours for a night with one free RSVP.

FREE WITH RSVP — EARLY ARRIVAL STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

Read more about the party in the interview here, and be sure to check out the mix above by our very own GDD writer and Overthrow DJ, Tamara Sky, for a taste of what’s to come.

Para One is a busy dude with many musical talents: from having dipped in the honey pot of the rap scene a variety of times (his work with French group TTC, production creds on A$AP Rocky’s “Wild For The Night”) to being a part of his own label (Marble, with Teki Latex and Bobmo). After a well-regarded release of his track “Passion” last year, Para One is back with a bigger, badder version thanks to the vocal talents of none other than Cam’Ron. As a sidenote, I can’t write or think about Cam’Ron without seeing this picture in my head, so here. #killuh

I spoke to Para One yesterday just before his trek to the US to tour starting in Miami, where I’m sure inevitably we’ll run into each other. Another sidenote, a definite party to check out that we’ll be at and Para One will be playing at is Lil Death’s NYC vs Paris this Friday. So read on about what Para One had to say after the jump, and as for myself I hope to see many of you out and about!

Portugal’s maestro of deeply tinged disco will be gracing the carpet at Bardot tomorrow night for our monthly GDD showcase. After putting out his mind-bending edit of Nicolas Jaar’s And I Say a few months ago, he’s followed it up with some magical remixes of Poland’s Kamp! and fellow Portuguese artist Moullinex, both of which are out now via Discotexas. Tickets for the show are available here.

While Miami is most notorious for the madness that occurs every March for WMC and Ultra Music Festival, thousands of art and music lovers from across the world converge in the beginning of December for Art Basel. We kicked things off in style last night at our weekly Slap & Tickle party at the beloved Electric Pickle with LA’s Rick Rude, and are gearing up for a massive evening tomorrow night at one of Miami’s newest venues, The Garage. The rising UK duo Bondax will be preforming an exclusive Art Basel set alongside Body High label boss Samo Sound Boy. The best part about this event is that its FREE, as long as you head over to the Slap & Tickle page and send us  your names before 6pm tomorrow. To get you in the mood, check out the latest Slap & Tickle promo mix.


Miami is in for a magical treat on Halloween night. Heralded as the DJ’s DJ, the dance floor maestro, and the mixtape assassin, The Magician has quickly taken the title of the godfather of good times. His acclaimed Magic Tape mix series grew from an audience of select bloggers and fans who were aware of his departure from Aeroplane, to a massive international group of listeners just wanting to bask in the glory of his tropical aura. Tickets for this Magical Edition of Slap & Tickle at Bardot are still available for $20. For more information about the event, click here.
