No Sugar Added Day 2 Live Blog

Welcome back to Nikki Beach for the second day of beats, beers and something else that starts with a b (sorry, after 3 days in Miami our brains are more than just a little fried.)

We’ll be covering the days (and nights) events live as they go down –  today is the biggest day at No Sugar Added, partially because we have our own stage, but mainly because Arty is headlining. We saw the young Russian destroy Stealth on Wednesday and we are excited to see what he has in store for tonight.  Not to mention the Electroclash stage –  did you guys see that lineup?

3:44: Miike Snow – Paddling Out (Bart B More Remix)

3:23AM: Bart B More wasting no time, dropping some old school Boys Noize. “YOU KNOW WE GONNA BE ALIRGHTTTT”

2:56: A little Above and Beyond.

2:47: Arty & Mat Zo vs. Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso — Rebound Calling (Arty Mashup)

2:40: Bangers-a-flowing. There’s no “Antidote” vs Alex Metric’s “Mother Protect”.

2:36: This is J-A-C-K. “Lionheart” has everyone off the floor.

2:32: Lights will guide you home and I will fix…your Pressure!


2:19: Arty blocked us on Facebook and now we’re gonna die.

2:10: Finally drops “TRIO”. 2012 MMW Artist of the week…ARTY? Title claimed.

1:50: Arty tearing shit up downstairs. Opening up with “Greyhound”…why not. Heavy from the start.

1:43: German electro-house legends – Digitalism! Up-stairs at Electro-clash. Still early in the AM.

1:31: ED Rec rookie of the year, Brodinski, providing some much needed Bromance.

1:22: Thin White Duke Remix of Mr. Brightside transitioned into Swanky Tunes – Legend…Perfectly.

1:12AM:Wolfgang Gartner – There And Back (Thank you Pierce Fulton for the Track ID)

1:00 Latest and greatest from Mog….”MPIRE”.  Top 10 track of the year? Perhaps.

12:47: Moguai has arrived! Starting things off with Eric Prydz remix of “Midnight City”

12:25am: Eating some grub with Pierce Fulton. “Who wants Pizza?”

11:56: Drop the Lime + AC Slater slinging serious fucking heat right now. “HOT AS HELL”

11:41pm: It’s Stefano Noferini on now, doing damage on the decks. The place is pretty much packed now.

10:01 EC Twins are currently causing some serious commotion on our stage right now.

8:15pm: Only 45 minutes until the launch of the DA stage!

7:30pm: Reboot is preparing the final songs of his set. This is the kind of vibe you’ll only get in a Brooklyn warehouse.

Current Track: Celeda, Danny Tenaglia – Music is the Answer

6:29pm: The party has officially started, Cadenza Garden is packed. Loaded Coronas are my new drink of choice. Clothing is optional.

6:09pm: Reboot in the mix at the now-indoors Cadenza Garden.

Current Track: Marcin Czubala feat. Metrobox – Anna In Red

5:32pm: I have a really tough job.

4:59pm: No one can possibly stay married in Miami…

4:50pm: I’ll be honest, as the resident degenerate at Dancing Astronaut I was never a tech house fan, but Lee might just be making me a believer. What’s that track that goes “Bah, Ba, Bahhhhdiii Bah Bah?” because it is incredible and transformed the dancefloor into a full blown party.  I’m cheating on dubstep and I don’t feel guilty about it.

4:45pm: “Fuck You!” Lee Curtis is laying waste to the beach arena.

4:17pm: Sorry for lack of updates, nights in Miami just never seem to end and even professionals like ourselves need our beauty rest, but we are back and kicking at Nikki Beach.  The days lineup is a tech and minimal fans dream.
