18 Mar Minimax’s Matt Ohashi | Event Creators #002 Miami Music Week
Welcome to our new series that highlights our event creators. Today we profile Matt Ohashi of Minimax Events. We asked him a few questions about what’s unique about his parties and who his favorite artists are at Miami Music Week / WMC.
What’s your aesthetic/sound culture?
Our culture is to pursue a healthy medium between cutting edge avant garde sounds and music that can still be relatable to newer audiences.
What separates what you do from everyone else?
Our aim is to provide immersive experiences. Think outside the box and offer our followers an experience that touches on more senses than just audio.
Tell us about the first party you threw. How did it go?
The first party I ever threw was in 2011 at The Beach Plaza hotel during WMC. It taught me that booking a bunch of DJs in a cool venue doesn’t automatically mean your going have a packed house!
Who are your favorite long-standing bookings?
Tiefschwarz and Fur Coat.
Favorite local artists?
Jeremy Ismael, Baez, Gil Montiel, Low Cut, Arremer Jack, many more.
