Ten Best EDM Parties During Art Basel Miami Beach 2012
French Express with Perseus, Chris Malinchak, Moon Boots, and Jonas Rathsman. Presented by Nightdrive Miami. Saturday, December 8, 10 p.m., The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St., Miami. Call 305-379-0508 or visit thevagabondmiami.com. Lush tropical nu-disco grooves are the specialty of Dallas blog-turned-label French Express, which makes them right at home in MIA. And the label's all-star Basel lineup is sure to be one of the groovier affairs The Vagabond's dance floor has seen this year.
Fuck Art, Lets Dance. With DJ Harvey, PillowTalk and Eats Everything. Saturday, December 8, 10 p.m., Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Call 305-456-5613 or visit electricpicklemiami.com. This is Art Basel Miami Beach's foremost dance party. And cosmic disco don Harvey, a regular over the years, always draws his legion of heads. But hotly-tipped newcomers PillowTalk and Eats Everything will no doubt pull their own weight with bass-heavy house and boogie.
