As industry professionals and music enthusiasts alike pack their bags full of bathing suites and sunscreen for Miami Music Week's annual gathering, Mixmag has tapped into some of the best event offerings that are set to take place in South Beach between March 20 - 25.
Among the long list of stellar functions taking place this week is Green Velvet’s La La Land showcase - an ongoing passion project created by the Chicago icon which has touched down at popular events such as EDC Vegas, Holy Ship and Electric Forest.
Hosted by Diskolab, the all-day showcase is set to take place on March 24 at the Delano Beach Club. La La Land Miami will be headlined by Green Velvet and Claude VonStroke’s collaborative Get Real project, with further support from the likes of Tiga, Kerri Chandler, Solardo, Latmun, Camelphat and more.
Green Velvet has also promised guest appearances from other big name artists who will play "an array of the greatest house and techno grooves from around the world" that will transport fans “to a place only experienced in their dreams.”

Check out 10 tracks both produced and selected by La La Land Miami's stacked line-up below.
Solardo's pick: Mason Maynard 'Lady Boys'
Selected by the relentless tech house duo Solardo for our list, the pair detail the track as a "forthcoming on our Sola Miami Compilation due this March. This track is going off and I suspect it is going to get the party going everywhere we play it."
Kerri Chandler 'The Way It Goes'
Kerri Chandler's 2016 single 'The Way it Goes' on Madhouse Records is a ultramodern take on the artist's classic house sound. The track is bound to make the sun shine a little bit brighter at any pool party it may find its way to.
One of the most popular dance music singles of 2017, Tiga's 'Woke' along with its numerous, unabashed remix efforts are bound to make an appearance down in South Beach this week. If you find yourself on the beach at night alone this week, the artist "wokeness" and the oh so inviting Atlantic ocean may very well tempt you to relinquish yourself of your mobile device.
Detlef x Green Velvet 'Issues'
Taken off Detlef and Green Velvet's collaborative 'Bassick' EP on the Chicago artist's Relief Records imprint, this rumbling tech-house track is as filthy and chunky as they come.
Get Real 'Snuffaluffagus'
This wicked joint effort from Green Velvet and Claude VonStroke is a jocular, lopsided and nightmarishly brilliant banger that will make your legs wobble and arms flail on any dancefloor.
Denny 'Back To Basics'
When tech house and bomba from Puerto Rico collide.
Fatboy Slim 'Right Here, Right Now' (Camelphat Remix)
Fatboy Slim’s seminal ‘You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby’ finally turns 20 years old this year and to celebrate, Norman Cook has got some very special friends to remix some of his most loved tracks. The Mixmag premiere of Camelphat's Grammy nominated remix of 'Right Here, Right Now' is making its way into the folders of party purveyors all over the world.
Joeski x Doc Martin - 'Vajra' (feat. Lillia)
A joint effort from deep tech specialist Joeski and LA's essential music maestro Doc Martin, this blissful track - piloted by Lillia's gorgeous vocal work - makes for a hushed down dance vibe that can set a cool tone for any poolside party.
A trailblazer of the UK tech house scene, Latmun's 'Footsteps' - released on Jamie Jones' Hot Creations imprint - is a scorching roller that has seen support across the musical spectrum.
Shiba San x Green Velvet 'Fearless'
