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

As you may or may not know, our lovely Laura (of Miami), Mr. PatrickWalsh and Nicolette Neves have been busy bees this past week, offering up their disk jockeying skills in homage to the annual winter Bacchanalia known as Art Basel. Nightdrive and our allies set up base camp over at the Wynwood Walls this week, which according to inside sources was pretty rad with killer DJ sets from the Nightdrive team and even break dance battle during Mr. Brown’s set. But, come on, did you really think we’d take the weekend off, cut and run before reaching the sensuous summit that is Mt. Basel? Hell no, there is more! … MORE
