5th November – Beluga Presents Jillionaire from Major Lazer – 11:00pm – 5:00am
Jillionaire, the alter-ego of Trinidadian DJ and music producer Christopher Leacock will be rocking the MICS soundsystem by mashing indie dance with big room house and a little caribbean rhythm thrown in for good measure. Famed for his collaboration with Diplo and DJ Switch in Major Lazer, Leacock has now branched out on his own to incredible effect. The party will be run in association with the luxury ultra-premium vodka brand, BELUGA. This really is an exclusive, one-off party in Monaco that should not be missed, under any circumstance!
6th November – Flash Deep presents The Avener, Joris Delacroix, Synapson – 11:00pm – 5:00am
Friday night sees local hero, The Avener, return to the French Riviera to rock the dancefloor at MICS. Born in Nice, The Avener is famed for his high quality fusion of Deep House, Electronica and Techno and his career has sky-rocketed after his debut album, The Wanderings of the Avener peaked at number 2 in the French charts.
The Avener will be ably supported by upcoming talent, Joris Delacroix; another local DJ from the South of France. His lush sweeping soundscapes and deep-tech have drawn plenty of international acclaim and his set will no doubt be one of the MICS highlights.
Joining The Avener and Joris Delacroix will be Parisian duo, Synapson. Their distinct Deep House and Nu-Disco sound has found them many admirers both in the their home country and across the globe and will undoubtedly delight the dance floor at MICS 2015.
