Trouble & Bass at Verboten on 7/12

Verboten's Control Room was THE place to be this past Saturday night for anyone looking to dance until the wee hours of the morning! Located in the heart of Williamsburg, Verboten has been known to put on some of the cities most insane shows - all while operating on an anti-mainstream, anti-nightlife philosophy. Pair this sound philosophy with some of NYC’s hottest DJs, and a party there will be. Let’s reflect...it was 11:30pm, the line was out the door and growing by the minute. We finally made it in, and were cooled instantly by the clubs steely, sharp interior which is reminiscent of the venue's former days as a metal shop. Cue the music; Star Eyes opened with her spacey, trance-inducing tunes. Gradually, revelers were drawn from their perches at the well-stocked bar onto the dance floor. Lights flashing, drinks flowing, beautiful people moving to the beat; the energy was electric. Around 12:30am Falty DL took the stage, rousing the audience with his signature blend of old-school grit infused with subtly tender undertones. The energy skyrocketed as "Take Time" by Mumdance & Novelist was spun, the frenzied crowd let out satisfied cries as they celebrated their love of all things grime and hip-hop. Alix Perez took over at 1:30am with a filthy set that kept clubgoers jamming, before handing the reigns over to Philadelphia-based Starkey at 3. Doctor Jeep closed out the night with a set that peaked when "Pulse X" was played. Eager patrons flocked to the floor, dispossessing all weekly worries and losing themselves in the deep house meets grime beat of the track. Pink and purple lights swirled, illuminating the sweaty 200-plus person herd. We danced until dawn, saw the sun rise and then slept off our ringing ears. Good times!

Panic Bomber Releases "Question"

It goes without question; Panic Bomber’s new house-oriented tune should be added to any summer playlist. Mixing a catchy rhythmic groove, jacking piano chords and vocal samples from the Destiny Child throwback classic “Independent Woman,” the track “Question” conjures a sensual, refreshing sensation in the listener. The track builds musically from a basic beat, while echoing vocals and a pulsing bassline result in a piece that is ideal for underground lounges. The track goes hard, though, with synth rifts that resonate with big room panache.

The UK born producer has established global recognition for releases on Anjunadeep, John Digweed’s Bedrock Records and YYZ Records. Highlighting the best underground dance music in Miami, Panic Bomber is a resident DJ and one of the founding fathers of Slap & Tickle, hosted every Tuesday at Bardot Miami. His dexterity and distinctive, unique style in producing has led to performances alongside Kaskade, Skrillex, Disclosure, Chus & Ceballos and many more.

Miami Artist Spotlight: Michael Brun


Story by Adam Lalani and Amanda Mesa

A year ago, Michael Brun had his debut headlining performance at Miami's crown-jewel of nightlife, LIV. Therefore, it was only natural for his return to the lucrative Miami Beach nightclub to present an air of nostalgia. Miami locals harbor a special love for any artist who calls their "magic city" home; this very sentiment carried us to Fountainbleau with delight as we set out to hear what the Hatian-born Miami resident had in store for us.
