After multiple attempts over the past few years to book my favorite Electro producer ever since I was a teenager, I finally landed the chance! I had said last year that I would never do another event, but when an opportunity like this presented itself I ran with it. But I couldn't just bring in the Godfather of Electro by himself, I had to make it "The Electro and Turntablism showcase of WMC", so with my best impulsive decision making skills I started pulling triggers left and right resulting in Galaxy Music Gathering V "The OG Edition".
Anthony Rother is the "WOW!" of the lineup but I didn't stop there. I decided to bring in the most influential DJ Crew of All time: "The Invisibl Skratch Piklz" (Q-bert, Shortkut, D-Styles). The Invisibl Skratch Piklz are the "DAMN!" of the lineup, but then I needed some Miami Ghetto Bass loveliness in the mix, so I introduced the "WHOA!" of the lineup...none other than "JT Money" of the legendary Miami Bass group Poison Clan.
Of course I couldn't stop there still, and since I love exclusivity at my events I brought on-board Debonaire, which in my opinion is one of the nastiest Miami Bass and Electro producers of all time. The man is a fucking genius! Many more gems on the lineup all performing exclusively at Galaxy Music Gathering will be Soul Oddity, Code Rising, Wreck Vs. James Wolfe, and many more!
For me, Galaxy Music Gathering isn't about just throwing the biggest, baddest party of Miami Bass Week (although it's looking to be), but moreover, bringing together people under one roof who all connect through the love we all have for this specific style of music we call Electro. Anyone who has ever been to a Shady event during the Winter Music Conference will tell you they are all about good vibes, dope music, and bad ass dancers like Iphlow Crew; which is a group I have sponsored for many years now. With all of this combined, what you have is one hell of a memorable moment that only makes me appreciate all the time, hardwork, and hustle that goes into making this all come true!
Thursday March 23, 2017 will be a day in history. A once in a lifetime type of lineup, all under one roof at Studio 23 (247 23rd Street Miami Beach, FL 33139). Tickets are still available, but act fast because this event will sell out quickly for sure!
