Laz is by far one of my favorite Miami producers although his reputation resonates beyond our Magic City. His new EP Our Kind of Love (off his own label petFood) is exactly the kind of house music that makes me happy. It’s classic sounding and reminds me of the good stuff they used to play at clubs when I was sneaking in with a fake IDs. It’s unpretentious good ol’ house.
I know the guy gets booked all over the world but somehow him and Oscar G have time to hold down Wednesday nights at one of the most authentic spots in Miami – Hoy Como Ayer. I recently had the pleasure spinning at their “Tropicasa” party and gotta say it was probably one of the most pleasant gigs I’ve had in a while. Everyone gets to play whatever they want and if the DJs are having fun chances are the room is happy. Loved the party as much as I love Laz’s music.
