Miami Music Week is just around the corner, but Protocol Recordings signees Florian Picasso and Blinders want to get you in the mood for the festivities early. The two progressive house artists have compiled a mix titled Miami 2016 sure to make you feel like you’re already at one of the city’s sunny beach parties.
Tracks like the Ben Lemonz remix of Volt & State’s “Sandcastles” and Arno Cost’s “Coming Alive” set a melodic tone at the beginning of mix, but its energy continually rises. The middle part is characterized more by big room bangers with massive synth leads and monstrous bass kicks, with more of an emphasis on singalong anthems near the end.
Of course, Florian Picasso and Blinders’ tracks receive tasteful placement in the Miami 2016 mix as well. The former artist’s “Final Call” and “Want It Back” can be heard, as well as “You Don’t Know” by the latter artist.
