HARD reveals Miami ‘Rump Shaker’ lineup with Knife Party, Zeds Dead, Jauz and more
Miami Music Week is one of dance music’s most important summits. While everyone knows that the week concludes with Ultra Music Festival,but those with their ear to the streets know that the Miami Beach clubs and hotels are home to some jam-packed talent showcases leading up to the festival. The expanding HARD brand has held events for the past few years in which Gary Richards has recruited artists that fit within the confines of his musical taste. On Wednesday, March 25 and Thursday, March 26, Grand Central in Miami will hold a two-night performance run from some of HARD’s favorite acts. The first night blesses HARD heads with the deeper side of the brand’s reputation, while ‘Rump Shaker’ brings the filth for night two.
With the lineups now available in full to the public, we see exactly what Rump Shaker means: harder beats and dirtier drops. With bass legends Zeds Dead and Knife Party leading the pack in the headline position, supporting acts Jauz, Wax Motif, and Crookers fall into place appropriately. While the two nights unquestionably cater to different crowds, together they encompass the general feel of the HARD brand.
