While I was down in Miami for a nice long 12-day holiday break, I was booked to play Fridays at The Vagabond with my partner Rudy M. Sixteen. We played the in the big room an caused havoc for an hour set. We definitely pounded some heads in. That next Monday we went out to catch a variety night thrown at this spot called Dream. Like a cold mojito on the beach it was refreshing, mostly to see people gathered at something so unique for the scene I remember some eight years ago.
While we were there, Rudy ran into this girl Inbal, who he played a gig for like five years ago. Back when 'Peg' was Rudy's most peak time track. (I love you Rudy, you know that. I played 'Peg' on New Years remember?) So Inbal still throws parties except now she's on the 4 to the floor tip. Which of course works out great for us.
Her party is that Wednesday, also Christmas eve, buy hey, we get to play Dirtybird records in Miami. So it was totally worth it and then some. The gig was at Blue, a spot I've been trying to play for a while. The set ends up working out quite nicely. And we made three new friends as well which is always great. Inbal runs an apparel line called Funk U 2 with her sister, Betty and brother Sean- who also DJs. I like the designs a lot and these kids are keeping it real down in Miami. In fact Christian Martin had just played their party, Retox a few weeks earlier.
Hopefully we'll be back in Miami soon getting down with this rad crew. Check out their clothing line and most definitely check out any parties Inbal or Baby Sean are DJing at. You can almost guarantee that Betty will be on the dance floor with her night shades on. (;-) love ya Betty.)
