If you are one of the creative mavens heading down to (or already in) Miami this week for Art Basel Miami aka Art Week Miami, then you know the importance of a good soundtrack. After all, any type of motivation is welcome to keep you hopping from one art fair/brunch/pool party in the day, and well into the TONS of parties and openings happening every night. To help, I got with Miami’s own DJ Sire Esq to give you this smoothed-out “Summer In Winter” Art Basel Miami mix, guaranteed help you ease into your recovery days out and have you refreshed by 6pm. And if you’re ever in the MIA, be sure to check for Sire’s weekly movements but watch out because he will thrown on some Uncle Luke bootyshake and you will dance. Be sure to keep up with our Parlour Instagram to follow all of my Miami madness.
Check out his and get to know Sire while listening. Peep the tracklist below to get the details.
