There is just something about Miami at the end of March. Every year the masses converge on this sweltering city to celebrate dance music in what has been dubbed “Miami Music Week”. The parties start early and often at every club, hotel pool and parking lot, turning each into its own little slice of electronic heaven. Whether you’re into trance or dubstep, big room or minimal, Miami remains the mecca of everything EDM. The landscape now seems saturated with festivals from the hallowed grounds of Woodstock to the massive soccer stadiums in Europe and everywhere in between. But one thing remains the same, Miami Music Week, culminating with Ultra Music Festival, is still THE place to celebrate the music we love. WHO IS COMING WITH US?!

It’s been 3 years since folk singer and songwriter Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man On Earth released an album, and this May he will be gracing us all with a new one. To be released on Dead Oceans Records, Dark Bird Is Home gives us the feeling that this is a time of new beginnings for the artist. In his album trailer, Matsson repeats that his journey, full of sadness, guilt, daydreaming and hopefulness, “This is not the end…this is fine.” He has given us a teaser of Dark Bird Is Home with a single from the album, “Sagres“, showing his emotional vulnerability with his signature guitar melodies, summery sounds and an exasperated “it’s just all this fucking doubt.” Along with his album, Matsson is going on tour – and for the first time, with a full band. His list is pretty extensive, so all you folk fans will have plenty of chances to catch them live.
If you haven’t heard Unlike Pluto‘s remix of Diplo’s “Revolution“, then you are seriously missing out. His debut original release with KickRaux on Mad Decent, “Palace”, is full of big synths and a vocal sample leading to an electrifying drop that will get your body flowing. The two Los Angeles producers make a great collab, and we are looking forward to hearing more from them both.
Along with “Palace”, Unlike Pluto also released a second original on Mad Decent, “Tew” which the label describes as “the beautiful sound of a 5 headed humanoid malfunctioning and slowly dying...” but it’s actually much more pleasant than that would suggest.
The Bad Kids Collective definitely knows how to throw one wild ass party, which was further proved this past Saturday at the third installment of their #BADdayclub party series.
We showed up an hour into the event at 5 PM, and were blown away by the already crazy scene before us as we checked out the crowd from the large horseshoe balcony that overlooks the main floor. Everyone at the event seemed to be dressed head to toe in BKC gear, so the SBB squad’s first stop was the BKC’s merch table where we bought some fresh new snapback hats to rock at the party.
Heading to the bar, we realized these kids were serious about their boozing with the aggressive amount of shots going on. In their words, they love “the “pour-directly-to-face” kind of boozing. The “wake-up-and-have-to re-read-your-texts-because-you-hardly-remember-them” kind of boozing. The “oh-shit-where-did-I-sleep-last-night” kind of boozing”….the third edition was definitely the most turnt up we’ve seen these kids get!! The dance floor was popping off in a major way, with everyone going buck wild – including the robots and costumed dancers on stilts.
The Spring / Summer 2015 fashion show did not disappoint – we were loving on all the new festy clothes that the BAD models sported on stage and especially loved when they came down to the crowd afterward and played dress up with us! We were overjoyed to catch up with the Bad Glam Squad as well – some extremely FABULOUS individuals who make those BAD babes look beyond stunning at every BKC event. All the models were looking ridiculously hot and we will definitely be investing in some new BADass rave apparel for the festivals we are hitting up this summer. Click here to buy some new gear for the warmer times ahead!
Supporting acts Jess Marquis, Liquid Todd, and Aylen all set a very energetic and upbeat tone for the day club, and headliners Elephante and the Disco Fries escalated these good feels to even crazier levels of awesome leading into the glorious night.
Check out the Bad Kids’ playlist on Soundcloud to get a taste of the top class tunage we all enjoyed:
We were very happy that we braved the snow to support the BKC’s #BADdayclub – the highlight of the event was definitely seeing founders Andi Cross and Lex Houser take the stage with the robots and pour champagne all over the crowd. They looked absolutely adorable, matching as always, in some fly new all-over BAD shirts that should be available soon on the BKC site. These two chicks are some of the kindest, hardest-working ladies in the business and we are so happy to call them dear friends! Thanks to you both for all the positivity that you share with each person you meet. If everyone was as wonderful as you two, the world would certainly be a much better place to live in! Thanks for the gooooood times, BAD babes!
