SiriusXM House of Chill Brought Intimate Sets to Miami Music Week



The SiriusXM events are always a Miami Music Week highlight – and this year, the satellite radio showcase was an intimate affair.

Some of the finest names in dance music, including Kaskade, Above & Beyond, Autograf, and Lost Frequenices took to the decks for a downtempo ensemble. Back-dropped by breathtaking views, the show which was soundtracked by dance music’s bests, was undoubtedly one for the books.

Ryan Raddon, better known to electronic music lovers as Kaskade, took to the decks at 5pm for the start of House of Chill. Starting things off with BLR “Böda” and his own “Atmosphere,” the mood was set from the very beginning. As guests entered the House of Chill, Kaskade’s Redux continued with his new “Cold As Stone” feat. Charlotte Lawrence, “Samba Love,” and Waste Love” feat. Quadron. From his ICE remix of “Lessons In Love” feat. Neon Trees, to his Galantis collaboration, “Mercy,” Raddon really set things off right. The intimate setting was picturesque for latter familiar set tracks like “4AM,” “Eyes” feat. Mindy Gledhill, “It’s You, It’s Me” feat. Joslyn, “Angel On My Shoulder” with EDX, L’Tric vs. Fleetwood Mac “Dreams,” and his closer, “Fakin It” with Felix Cartal feat. Ofelia K.

Above & Beyond, who are known for their emotional trance sets, are no strangers to the deep side. In addition to their famed Anjunabeats label, the guys also release deep tunes under Anjunadeep. Jono and Paavo serenaded the patio with a beautiful deep set consisting of a remix of “Lie Alone” from 16 Bit Lolitas, Gabriel & Dresden feat. Jan Burton “Underwater,” Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid “Aba (Luttrell Remix),” and their own homage to Detroit, taken from the Common Ground album, “Northern Soul” feat. Richard Bedford, in the Ben Böhmer remix.


The industry mixer-turned-live broadcast also included downtempo sets from Lost Frequencies and Autograf. Lost Frequencies has a sound that’s perfectly suited for the beach, Miami sun, and serene backdrop provided by House of Chill. Vibes were set as palm trees and attendees swayed along to LF tracks “Reality” feat. Janieck Devy, “Dance With Me,” his latest smash single, “Crazy” with Zonderling feat. David Benjamin, and his tropical remix of Miley Cyrus “Malibu.” Autograf chilled things down with “Nobody Knows” feat. WYNNE, The Magician feat. Brayton Bowman “Shy,” “Fixed On You” by Hotel Garuda feat. Violet Days, and Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) “Evil Woman.”
