A tropical candid
“I’ve just arrived in the beautiful apartment, where I’ll be staying with my three friends, one of which is my manager, throughout Miami Music Week. First things first, it’s time to have a nice long lunch on the balcony and enjoy the views of beautiful downtown Miami before I start getting ready for my gig tonight at Story.”
Biscayne Bay views
“It’s time for my first set of Miami Music Week! I’m supporting my buddy Laidback Luke at his Super You & Me party, where I played for an hour right after Nora En Pure. Story is an amazing club with an incredible sound system! The party also featured What So Not, Destructo, EDX, Shiba San and even Tiesto paid us a visit!”
Super You & Me at Story
“Hitting the decks at Story Nightclub.”
Snapping a photo with my good friend Tiesto
“The next day it was time to play with all of my friends at the Delano hotel for Robin Schulz’s Sugar Party. It was a great afternoon filled with wonderful people and good vibes. It was very hot during the day, but that didn’t stop us from making the best party out of it!”
“I finally got a chance to catch up with Lost Frequencies at one of my shows!”
Can anyone say 'family photo'?
“It’s not Miami Music Week without a group photo, or five.”
“The next day it was time for a well deserved rest day, which I spent chilling at the beach and having a nice dinner with friends later on.”
Finishing off strong
“After I rested up, it was time to prepare for my next gig. I played with my good friend EDX at Set nightclub. It was really good fun and we played until the morning hours!”
Thank you, Miami
“Finally, my last set of the week was one of my best so far, when I played the No Sugar Added event at Nikki Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day and everyone was in a fantastic mood, which made for a perfect party. I played an hour of my favorite tunes and when I dropped my new track ‘Games Continued,’ the collaboration with Goldfish I released earlier this year, the crowd went absolutely nuts!”
One last goodbye
“And that’s a wrap for MMW 2016! I want to thank all of my fans and party people that came out and danced with me this past week. I loved every second of it and can’t wait to be back!
Now I’m off to continue the next leg of The Circus Tour. Stay tuned for another Journal entry next week and hope to see you at one of my upcoming shows! :)”
