With the spotlight firmly set on Ultra Music Festival for Miami Music Week (MMW) each year, the week is often compiled of other events in the build up to the weekends highlight. Announcing in December that Adam Beyer and Cirez D – a well known alias of Prydz – would play a back to back (B2B) show at MMW, fans flooded ticket sites to grab their ticket for the special show. Held on the Saturday of MMW, despite the attention normally being on the festival, this rare and unique show has stolen some of the glory.
Held at Miami’s SOHO Studios, the evening was warmed up by Prydz progressive prodigy Cristoph, who readied the crowd for a night of intense techno fronted by two of the genre’s finest. With Beyer and Cirez D taking over just after 2am, the energetic evolution of dark and deep techno matched with incredible lighting production created a mesmerising 3 hours that only reiterates the skill and class of the two artists involved. Showcasing a number of their own tracks, including a bootleg of Cirez D’s “On Off” and Adam Beyer’s “What You Need“, the pair established a strong reaction from those present.
Although Prydz and Beyer were at the forefront of the event, it has to be said that the simplicity and timing of the lasers and lights were the driving force for what was always destined to be a set to remember. The EPIC team appropriately matched their production up with the intensity and mood of each track, making for a memorable occasion.
Whilst three Swedes gathered all the headlines on the main-stage, there were two more that certainly didn’t want to be left out. Producing the finest display of techno, Adam Beyer and Cirez D’s Miami B2B gained plenty of attention, and rightly so.
This is set that is not to be missed, and you can catch it right here:
