We hope you’ve already found out about Midnight Magic playing at Scaramouche tomorrow night (Saturday May 4th), if you haven’t – it’s true. Scaramouche is not a reference to the Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” it’s a tribute to the disco hay days in Miami. In the late 70s and early 80s, the disco craze and emergence of contemporary club culture manifested itself in the Omni Hotel just north of Downtown Miami. The name of the party was Scaramouche, hosted by local legend Bo Crane and commandeered by resident DJ, Joe Lenders. This members only affair hosted some of the biggest names in the disco scene and set the pace for Miami nightlife as a clubland mecca.
With a firm grasp on the roots of dance music and its legacy, along with a keen sense for emerging talent, Nightdrive Miami is bringing back the spirit of the discotheque… And Midnight Magic (one of our favorite disco outfits) is headlining the night. Dude Skywalker will also be performing their live debut alongside DJS Stravinsky, Ess & Emm, Laura of Miami, and Patrick Walsh. Check out our interview with the NY boogie band below and DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW! … MORE
Nightdrive Miami and Fordistas XII have been silently working on this very exciting project for the past couple months and now is the time to officially divulge what we’ve been up to.
One of the best parts about being in South Florida is the tremendous cultural momentum we’re experiencing, not only in the visual and performing arts, but in music as well. So naturally when new and innovative producers and musicians come along with strong Miami roots, we feel obligated to showcase Miami’s emerging talent. With that said, it’s our pleasure to introduce to you Dude Skywalker, three Miami locals and best friends with a passion for dance music- specifically disco and house. We asked the ‘Dudes’ to give us a new and exclusive track, and Feel Good appeared in our inboxes shortly thereafter. We then asked five other locals to remix the single, providing us a broad sampling of the dance music scene bubbling up from the underground here in South Florida. You can download all six tracks exclusively at Fordistas.com for free (see link after track players). … MORE

This one is for the ladies. If you like French disco pop a la Yelle Jupiter is for you. They’ve released some stuff off of Kitsuné, Valerie, and Ministry of Sound. I personally like playing their tracks at Bardot. I find them accessible and appealing to most nu disco and pop music fans. … MORE
