Do Not Sit (On the Furniture) had its opening party on Thursday and the Miami party's transition to the White Isle was a raucous success. Curated by Behrouz, the lineup consisted of Cassy, Squire, Behrouz himself and a special live set from Mobilee's Rodriguez Jr.
It was a packed room from the start, with Heart's immersive soundsystem slamming out deep, melodic tech with global influences from African chants to South American-tinged drums. Once Rodriguez Jr began, his combination of Ableton Live, TR8S drum machine and Allen & Heath K2 controller saw him dancing and shuffling to a relentlessly rolling set.
It was an epic night, and it's all happening again tonight with DJ sets from Behrouz and Sasha and Lindstrøm playing live. Info here. Here's ten tracks that shook the opening:
Johan Agebjörn feat. Yota & Le Prix 'Don't Wait'
Marco Resmann feat. Deep Aztec 'Abadala'
