Watch: Devon James Shares A Tale of Miami Music Week Past
Shortly after touching down in Miami on Wednesday, March 23, the Gray Area team headed over to 1-800-Lucky for the RVDIOVCTIVE Showcase thrown by New York’s Devon James. As if a lineup including Skream, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Nala b2b QRTR, Tara Brooks, and Francesca Lombardo wasn’t enough to entice us, the venue is a unique Miami hotspot. There aren’t too many other places to experience world-class DJs in the blissful sub-tropical Miami climate while chowing down on ramen and sushi from the on-site food court.
A name familiar to fans and industry insiders a like, Devon James has an impressive catalog of heaters on including last year’s “Dazzler” with long-time friend and collaborator Felix Da Housecat. His RVDIOVCTIVE brand started off as a tight-knit artist collective in New York and has evolved into a lauded party brand, and now a recently launched record label.
When we last caught up with James, he enchanted us with wild stories of touring with Felix Da Housecat and growing up in the music industry. This meet-up was no different as he spun a tale of a past Miami Music Week that involved the police, Ron Jeremy, and one of Miami Beach’s most infamous poolside venues.
To catch the whole story, find out how a 13-year-old Devon snuck into the rave, and hear his favorite Miami foods, check out the full interview in the below video.
