Although he first landed on the scene in 1989 with his classic Frankie Knuckles collaboration "Tears," it would be another decade before Satoshi Tomiie emerged in the national dance-floor consciousness with his critically acclaimed 2000 debut, Full Lick. That album featured the hits "Love in Traffic" and "Up in Flames" and established Tomiie as one of the most popular names in the dance world. In 2001, he set up his own SAW recordings and hired New York City DJ Hector Romero to run the show. Together, they have turned SAW into one of the finest progressive house labels and have taken their deeply funky sound on tour around the globe. With the impending release of Tomiie's latest mix CD, 3D, Tomiie and Romero arrive in Miami to offer a little window into their world.
Satoshi Tomiie performs with Hector Romero at 10 p.m. Friday, December 23, at Shine, 1801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Admission is $20. For table reservations, call 305-804-5462.
