It’s been crackin like no other at Amnesia Miami lately — we received confirmation that Wolfgang Gartner and Tommy Trash absolutely smashed the place a few weeks ago with their amazing live sets — and this coming weekend, Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th, to be exact, will be no different. New school will clash with the old, as up-and-comer Otto Knows will rock the Amnesia decks on the 18th, followed by seasoned veteran Joachim Garraud on the 19th, making for a pair of shows you won’t want to miss!
Sweden has taken the EDM world by storm, with acts like Swedish House Mafia, Alesso, and Avicii creating insanely dope house tracks to rage to, and judging from the massive reception generated from his smash debut single “Million Voices”, Otto Knows, the newest signee under Sebastian Ingrosso’s Refune label, undoubtedly represents the next wave of sick Swedish EDM producers. We were lucky enough to catch Otto open for Ingrosso during Miami Music Week this past March, and man did he get the crowd amped up with his opening set! It’s safe to say, then, that even though he’s relatively new to the EDM scene, you’ll have your drink(s) up in the air come the 18th. And in case you haven’t heard it yet, listen to “Million Voices” below:
Joachim Garraud, on the other hand, has mastered the art of live EDM performance over his decades-long DJ career. Unlike most DJ’s, Garraud remixes on the fly during his live sets, and also combines specially-made visual imagery with live keyboard play to create a one-of-a-kind show. Given that Amnesia is the Frenchman’s last stop on his current U.S. tour, we know he’s gonna go out with a bang and take your Saturday night to the next level! If you’re still on the fence, check out this vid of him smashing Amnesia late last year:
