Things To Do

Millionyoung on Making a "Pop Record With Substance," Willennium, and the Miami Heat

On Saturday, April 20, Fort Lauderdale's indie beacon of light, Radio-Active Records, will celebrate Record Store Day 2013 with an action-packed, 13-hour event chock-full of free stuff, live music, and delectable and rare musical items. Just streets away, at the massive Revolution Live complex, Block x Blog will be making Fort Lauderdale indie-music history with an epic lineup spanning three stages. 

Among those performing this year at both events is Coral Springs native Mike Diaz, the musical mastermind behind chilled-out electronic indie outfit Millionyoung. With the recent release of Variable, the sophomore follow-up to 2011's Replicants LP, and a full U.S. tour just under way, Diaz gave us a moment to talk about what he's been up to and divulge some of his record-collection gems.
