6 FT Deep

Back and better than ever, that’s our mantra going into Summer 2019!

Kicking things off with a bang this Thursday thanks to the help of Half/Full Creative group. Coffintexts, Papelagua, and the up-and-coming Palma Vicio are set to spin the night away. Multiple vendors in the building along with trinkets and exclusive Merch! As many like to say, definitely a night you don’t want to miss.

Here’s what you need (well not need but its nice) to know about 6 ft deep:

ARTIST BIO: Coffintexts released her new E.P. today (05/21) and Paperwater only recently added to their repertoire with their release of “Slow Down You’re Moving Too Fast”. Both are paving a new path in Miami’s music scene in hopes of being THE FUTURE. Very much alike, Palma Vicio is debuting his unshazamable music full of beats dating back to the 90’s.

VENUE & VENDORS: V goes with V, right? Floyd holds a special place in a heart for many Miamians. For us, we like to call it home, our favorite place in Miami, and a kickass sound system. We’re way too excited to play with this place, hope you’re excited to see it!

FUN STUFF: 6 ft deep is a creation from the mind of no other than Coffintexts. She’s come onto the scene playing hard-hitting records that make heads bob and booties shake. Coyo, done. 1306, killed. Faena, well on its way to destruction. Now it’s time to turn to Floyd, our favorite, and wreck havoc.

DID YOU KNOW: If we’re already saying fun stuff, might as well add the cheesy did you know. Palma Vicio, A.K.A, our sound guy for all UMAMI shows, lives in Orlando, FL. You’ll see him Thursday but his presence comes swiftly. We bet he’ll be back up North the next day! Papelagua, who’s ego is present, is no other than…..well, you’ll have to see.

Top to bottom, 6 ft deep incorporates sound and atmosphere for an experience in a new dimension. No, not that deep, just deep enough to feel like you're in a club, but you're not.

See you Thursday UMAMI fam and co.

With raving hearts,

UMAMI CREW

PAPERWATER: Boundaries Don't Exist

Eclectic. Different. New. Three words to summarize Paperwater. As you’ve heard before, Paperwater is a duo comprised of Eddy Samy and Daygee Kwia. Instead of speaking about their background, which you can read below (you will never guess where Daygee is from) we’re going to spend a little time talking about what music means to them. The reason? Well, because Insomniac and Grungecake both wrote great articles/interviews about them. Why do it again?

We’re using Insomniac’s last paragraph: “To Eddy and Daygee, music does not belong in a box, neatly labeled and filed away under the appropriate Beatport genre tab. To Paperwater, music is universal and constantly evolving. Like them, it should be allowed to test limits and change perspectives.” Agreed. Look throughout history and tell us we’re wrong! Music has changed continuously since it’s creation due to many factors, mainly related to the intermingling of cultures still happening today. Paperwater and us are on the same wave about this, music was never meant to have boundaries and never should (unless you’re Justin Bieber and you have to make mainstream hits to stay afloat).

Let’s take it a step further. Both Eddy and Daygee believe that music has no boundaries and through meeting them, we think they have no boundaries. VENTURE 2018 featured all types of artists with no boundaries. YOMY, INVT, Chester Watson, these guys are slowly changing the Miami music scene, one song at a time. Paperwater and Coffintexts had a back to back set of bumps. They played some hits and narrowed most of their set down to songs you’ve never heard of. We’ll make sure to record our next event so we have proof (video doesn't do it justice).

The point is that they’re well aware of what’s happening in the music scene, I mean, you could hear it. On Grungecake’s interview upon being asked “How has Miami shaped your sound/influences?” in 2015, Daygee responded “It hasn’t at all. We fuck with other artists here, but not the city. It shows no love to it’s children.” Fuck we love these guys. Even though we sweat and bleed Miami, I understand the point. The question is: Is that only Miami, or the whole USA?

Paperwater has taken their “no boundaries” attitude towards films, music videos, interviews, blogs (shoutout to them for taking the time to do what we’re doing), and even guides, like their 2017 Art Basel Guide on their website www.halffullagency.com. Their passion towards creativity has taken them to Europe, across the US and too many places to name. Plain and simple, these guys are setting new boundaries of art that’s being appreciated everywhere.
