Afrobeta Shares First Track, Debut EP This Summer

Miami’s avant-dance duo Afrobeta have been tearing up dancefloors their hometown since 2006, with the Miami New Times even naming them Best Band in 2010. After the success of their debut EP, Do You Party?, which came out last July, the band is ready to announce the details of their full-length debut- Under The Streets will see a release in Summer 2011 via Do IT Music Group (details coming soon)! Check out the first free track from the album, “Nighttime,” for a taste of what Under The Streets has in store for the world!

Cuci Amador and Smurphio formed Afrobeta in 2006 as a means to attain an ultimate form of artistic self-expression. Their mutual love of classic songwriting, Cuban pastries and dancing till 5AM inspired them to make music together. The thirteen tracks that make up their debut album will undoubtedly ignite dance-floors around the world- the band has a sound that is universally irresistible.

Afrobeta’s unique (and diverse) sound transcends genre classifications. Cuci’s rapid-fire delivery, combined with Smurphio’s funky synths and head-bopping basslines, will keep you moving from start to finish on Under The Streets.

Afrobeta is taking their joyous beats and dazzling live shows across the nation and abroad! 2010 included high profile performances at the 40th Anniversary Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, the 12th annual Ultra Music Festival, Burning Man, Ultra Brazil and Space Ibiza.

Allies Release Mixtape w/ Interview, EP Release Show

Allies is thrilled to celebrate the release of the Hour of the Wolf EP with a special EP release show at Le Bain in New York City’s Standard Hotel on March 10th at 9pm.  Having garnered appreciation from DJs all over, Allies’ Brian Suarez had released a DJ Mixtape which premiered on Interview Magazine today.

Allies custom blend of synth-pop and electro is replete with heartbreaking vocal melodies, irresistible rhythms and Brian Suarez’s chimerical voice.  “Oceans” is a tale of love by the sea that will command you to the dance floor. The percolating synths of “Hour of the Wolf” punctuate the anthemic chorus and propulsive hooks. “Ghosts” has a spellbinding electronic rumble and stutter that adds a sinister element to the dreamy vocals. The playful “Springtime (All Over My Face)” is a flirtatious duet about having fun in the warm weather that will make you feel like winter is already over. Allies have created an EP for your headphones and favorite dance floor that is compelling without ever sacrificing the fun melodies.

Release Party w/DJ Alex English @ Le Bain at The Standard NYC, March 10 @ 9PM!
