[EVENT REVIEW] Resistance Wins Miami Race Week, Again

We went to M2 for Carl Cox & Mathame this past Race Week. For those who have been to the prior iteration of this club, M2 is bigger, better, and completely reimagined. The production is frankly unmatched and the club has it more than deserved to be on any of the world’s top clubs list. The staff are also hardworking and very friendly.

As for the Selecta Friday night, Carl Cox — as usual — did not disappoint. King Carl took us all on a magical journey playing mostly hard, dark Techno tracks, letting tons of IDs slide throughout the night. I particularly enjoyed when he dropped a remix of DMX’s ‘Ruff Ryder’s Anthem’ (I really appreciated this as a transplant New Yorker). The night went on just how you’d expect: the King made his entire kingdom move to his beats. This, mind you, was delivered in the form of a massive 5-hour marathon set from 1 AM to 6 AM.

Saturday came and we were ready for Round Two. Mathame dropped a very impressive set that took us all on a journey. Nothing was in the way of him electrifying the crowd with his peculiar sound. One that can only be described as a hypnotizing, unique and forward-thinking blend of techno, melody, and emotion that left us clueless about space and time. We were just there and then, nothing else.

Pairing M2’s superb production with the masterclass of Resistance, Carl Cox, and Mathame’s sets is like paring a fine Cabernet with a juicy churrasco. Having been to nearly every show this Resistance season, we look forward to seeing what they have in store next season! These shows and the crowds that flock to them show that Techno has busted its way into the mainstream and it is here to stay. We for one at EDMTunes are happy about it, and can’t wait for the future of Resistance returning to M2 for season 2!
