Essential: Doc Martin drops three edits inspired by Detroit's famous Old Miami

Doc Martin has just released a new original production along with a label edit inspired by Detroit's famed party Old Miami.

The spinning house track 'Monday At Old Miami' is an energetic and beat-faceted piece that brings fans right back to the sun-saturated, all-smiles vibe of Seth Troxler's outrageous backyard event that takes place every year during Movement Detroit weekend.

Old Miami, which is a perfected version of the no-smoke-and-mirrors mentality the Detroit music scene is most famous for, has fans waiting for hours at a time throughout its entire 7AM - 7PM time slot, bringing nothing but a wooden DJ platform, open space and a monster sound system. For most, it's the best party of the weekend, holding an indescribable spirit of joy that seems to wash over every attendee the moment they step in. This past year featured The Black Madonna, Kevin Saunderson, John Acquaviva and of course, Doc Martin.

Doc's 'Monday At Old Miami' released via Desert Hearts Records and enlisted two edits from fellow DH players Joeski, Mikey Lion and Lee Reynolds.

Joeski's acid remix is a harder, darker take with a obscure alteration on Lillia's original bellowing vocals. Desert Hearts founder Mikey Lion and Lee Reynolds took their signature tech-house approach to Martin's bit, incorporating the classic slinky-like beat breakdown and constant percussion.

Listen to all three versions of Doc Martin's 'Monday At Old Miami' below.
