Are you tuned in to the constant hum of these streets? It's steady bass pounding into the night. It's a tinny hi-hat on repeat. It's the indefinite groove of Miami.

But who's supplying the rhythm that our city dances to? Who's carving a giant 305 into the side of the Earth's face? Whose non-stop hustle makes our metropolis one of the BPM scene's greatest destinations?

These five Miami-based record labels are kicking out the jams. We'd even call them the best.

5. Basshead
This label had a quiet year in 2013, but boss Juan Basshead and crew remain heavy hitters, still repping the grimy underbelly of the Miami scene. Over the past five years, Basshead has hosted releases from 12th Planet, Datsik, Bassnectar, Zeds Dead, and local fave Otto Von Schirach. The crew regularly lures big bass acts to town. And recently, Juan and his Basshead bros (not to mention special guests 69 Boyz and Trick Daddy) took home the crown at Grand Central's Red Bull Culture Clash. We're giving props where props are due and we hope to see Basshead release more music in 2014.
