German Garcia Wants to Be an EDM Inspiration, "Not Like an Avicii, Surrounded by Girls and Ferarris"

In order to make it, a lot of musicians either go commercial or step over people to get ahead. Basically, give up their originality or turn into an asshole. Both of which pretty much suck.

That's the antithesis to West Palm Beach-based DJ German Garcia's approach. The Uruguayan-naitve recently started up his own label, Xima records with good friend and colleague Patrick M, resident DJ at Space. Their main goal: highlight local artists with an underground sound. As part of Vibe Music Week -- a set of EDM-centered events running in conjunction with Winter Music Conference -- Garcia will be featuring some of his artists and some of his own new tracks.
