Since launching Slap & Tickle 15 weeks ago at the Electric Pickle in Miami, we’re throwing the biggest event yet on July 3rd with a 12 hour marathon of tunes. We’ve teamed up with SAFE to bring in the legendary house producer/DJ Danny Howells (Dig Deeper/London) who has confirmed that he’ll be playing upstairs for at least five hours. Outside, we’ve organized live performances from Kurtz & Bomber, Le Blorr, and Millionyoung. In support will be a supreme line-up of all the Slap & Tickle guests from the last few months. We’re opening doors at 5pm with a BBQ and free beer until 8pm, so get your 4th of July celebrations started early. For more info, click HERE.

A few months ago, GDD launched the first Slap & Tickle at Miami’s favorite underground dance venue  The Electric Pickle. Every Tuesday, the lure of $2 tequila shots and deep grooves swept through the city and manifested itself into one steamy dance party. Tomorrow night, we pick up the pace with Australian headliner BENI. Affiliated with Modular and Bang Gang imprints, his unique brand of house and techno was a shoe-in for our debut headliner. We kick things off tomorrow at 10pm with residents Troy Kurtz, Pirate Stereo, and Santiago Cabellero. Tickets will be $10 at the door. Click here for more info.

In trying to keep up with the boys out in LA, I’ve been busy in trying to organize more GDD events in Miami. Our weekly Slap & Tickle party on Tuesday’s at Electric Pickle has become quite a hot little dance party (maybe in part to $2 tequila shots) that’s encouraged me to get some more events happening. On Thursday, GDD teams up with the good folks at Poplife, Super Music Group, and Grand Central to bring you two rooms of good vibes. Amtrac and Brass Knuckles will be headlining the main room, and I’ll be headlining upstairs in The Garret, debuting a bunch of new stuff I’ve been trying to finish before WMC. The show is 21+ and starts at 11pm. Pick up pre-sale tickets here.


We’re proud to announce that GDD has teamed up with The Electric Pickle in Miami to launch our weekly Tuesday night party called Slap & Tickle, which launches tomorrow night at 11pm. The Electric Pickle is undoubtedly the premier venue in Miami for underground dance music (just check out their WMC line-up) and we are extremely stoked to breathe some life back in the Miami weeknight party circuit. Check out the promo mixes that residents Pirate Stereo, Santiago Caballero, and myself have curated.  We look forward to meeting our MIA GDD fam tomorrow (PS NO COVER!)

While most of the country is scraping ice off their windshields, residents of Miami are closing out 2011 with probably the biggest pool party of the year this Sunday poolside at Arkadia. Skrillex, the dark prince of dubstep, will be headlining alongside the moombahton maestros Nadastrom, Damaged Goods, and myself. It kicks off at 2pm at the Fontainebleau Hotel and goes until 8pm. The party is 21+, and tickets can be purchased here.

*I’ll also be playing at Arkadia tonight for my Friday night residency!

Last week we had a huge night with Bang Gang’s side project The Finger Prince and Lemonade’s Alex Pasternak tearing up the Central all the way til close. This week we keep the specialty big guns rolling with a Secret Guest headliner that will be debuting his own side project, aside from his already major act. Supporting the night is Shae B from Trippensoxx, Paul Loeb, Bangarang, and Danceism’s Dom Corleone. With only 3 weeks left @ The Central (before we move to our new venue), you don’t want to miss out on these must-see last lineups!

See ya Thursday!


What better way to kick off Miami Music Week tomorrow than with a live performance by Australian good guys Miami Horror.  Without a doubt, one of the most intimate and eccentric venues Miami has to offer, Bardot will surely be slammed with pre-sunburned bodies from around the world, as well as cameos from select members of the GDD family (stickers in hand).

Pre-sale tix are still available for $10, and doors are opening at 8pm.

Opening and closing tunes will be provided by Pirate Stereo and myself.

Miami Horror – Make You Mine (Codebreaker Remix)

Miami Horror – Sometimes (Universe Remix)

Over the next few days, we’ll be posting all the vital information to the events that we’ll be throwing in Miami next week for Miami Music Week. Once again, we’ve teamed up with OVERTHROW for the official unofficial closing party of Ultra 2011. And yes, it’s at a full nude stripclub called Gold Rush. And yes, Miami badman and multiple DMC champ Craze, along with ATL trenchstep dude Heroes x Villains, along with a bunch of other DJs including GDD’s own BONES and myself will be playing everything from Juvenile to Joker. Pre-sale tix are $10 and you must be 21 to see the tata’s. Infamous photographer Bronques of lastnightsparty.com will be capturing the debauchery, so if you drink too much and forget what the stripper who gave you a lap-dance looked like, we’ll have documentation.

I’ll leave you with a good idea of what will be happening as featured in Caligula‘s music video for their track ‘Light in the Dark’ off their EP titled ‘The Rise

Oh, and there’s probably gonna be some Moombahton in there too.
