5 tunes that are going to go off at MMW

Of course, so many new tunes are going to emerge throughout the week that’ll blow the ravers away, but we here at URN predict these 5 tunes will become certified anthems of Miami Music Week 2014.

Oliver Heldens – Gecko

This absolute anthem has been knocking around since before Christmas and has had great support from the world’s biggest DJs and is sure to feature in many sets across the week. Depressingly for the rest of us, Heldens is only 17, so expect to be hearing his name for years to come.

Diplo, Deorro, Steve Aoki – Freak

If I had to name 3 artists that are none for their enormous and sometimes unusual bass lines, these 3 would certainly spring to mind. Freak is a dream collaboration for bass lovers and it certainly doesn’t disappoint, I expect this to be booming from Ultra’s main stage speakers on the reg!

R3hab & Deorro – Flashlight

Recently number one on Beatport, this incredible song has an atmospheric progressive house build up before slapping you in the face with a ferocious EDM drop.

Eric Prydz – Liberate
