Shoring up Heathrow's more dancefloor-friendly offerings is tonight's party, which tends more towards the experimental and heavy. Prefuse 73
was born Guillermo Scott Herren in Miami but grew up in Atlanta; still, he remains popular locally thanks to his releases on labels like Schematic
. With a dizzying discography under a number of monikers, he remains best known for his warped outings that dredge the more leftfield reaches of rock and hip-hop into tweaked IDM. He's also responsible for signing his partner on the decks for the night, Eliot Lipp
, to his Eastern Developments record label. Heavily influenced by west coast hip-hop and anything created on the 808, Lipp's sound drags boom-bap electro into the future. Ages 21+ with ID; Heathrow Lounge, 681 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. 305-534-7614; www.heathrowlounge.com.
