Switch Coming to Heathrow December 13


Chromeo, Crookers, and now Switch? Whoever is responsible for the string of bookings at Heathrow Lounge deserves a gold star because it's getting ridiculous. It almost seems like Heathrow is quickly becoming the Studio A replacement we hoped for -- except it's ill equipped to handle any kind of live performance. Save the date, because Saturday, December 13, Switch takes over the decks at the South Beach nightclub.

Switch, also known as Dave Taylor, is the man responsible for producing dancefloor staples for artists like M.I.A. ("Boyz," "Jimmy," and "20 Dollar") and Santogold ("You'll Find A Way" and "Creator"), and has remixed tracks for Nine Inch Nails, Kelis, Basement Jaxx, P. Diddy, The Chemical Brothers, Lily Allen -- I think you catch my drift.

Last time Switch was here it was for his Dubsided label party at Studio A with Jesse Rose, Annie Mac, Sinden, Drop the Lime and Duke Dumont. While the party was an all-out riot music-wise, it was poorly attended, so I'm hoping Miami really shows Switch some love this time around.

After the jump, Switch's biggest dancefloor hit to date "A Bit Patchy."
