Miami Art Week is hands down the craziest Miami can get. The streets are packed, the galleries are full, the parties are over the top, but it’s all worth it. The main attraction, Art Basel, brings out so many tourists and locals who have been working year-long just for this week. Of course with so many installations and parties, the schedule gets hectic, and choosing the right events gets tricky. Being more into the music side of things, the concerts, showcases, and parties are more my steeze. Red Bull Music Academy always delivers by bringing a line-up of artists and DJ’s that stand out from cookie-cutter, mainstream music. This year, they brought us 12 Hours of NAAFI: a 12-hour party highlighting some of the dopest underground DJ’s and artists from Mexico. Think of it as a festival, packed in one day, under the roof of a small tequila bar in Wynwood. While the rest of the city was running around in the rain, once I stepped into Coyo, I completely forgot about the hassle of trying to find parking for nearly an hour. Inside, the red glow from the Xipe Totec neon sign is in tune with the beats blasting as Jubilee spins. Everyone inside is sweating their asses off, having the best time and just smiling from ear to ear. It’s very infectious and hard not to immediately get into the groove with the energy inside. Tacos are being passed out, which is the only time the dancers stop to take a break. It really feels like you’re in someone’s back yard–great music, food, tequila shots, and nothing pretentious about this scene. Jubilee, a Miami-bred DJ, manages to get us in rhythm with the theme of the night, combining latin vibes with club music. It works, and I, along with my friends, are soon dancing with everyone else. At one point I took a break, leaned against the wall and scanned the room. People dancing off beat, on beat — it didn’t matter. Everyone was having such a good time laughing and cheering friends on who were breaking it down on the dance floor. I couldn’t help but feel good and feel comfortable. RBMA brought together an event that was about inclusion during what some might consider a “invite-only” kind of week. The limited edition take-home bag designed by SANGREE was an added bonus, to an already amazing event. *Photo Creds: TheCameraClicks and Stacey Gamble*
