A certain breed heads from Art Basel Miami to Rakastella on the secluded Virginia Key, warm people with awesome perspectives. The music chimes all the frequencies of house to techno at just the right moments. The intimate vibe and deep lineup made for a great electronic music experience that kept ascending until sunrise. Take a peek within and sample the sounds of Rakastella 2019.

Rakastella 2019 Playlist

The curators and renowned label collectives Life and Death and Innervision, founded by DJ Tennis and Dixon & Âme, continue their track record of exceptional experiences. Rakastellar was not about the big light shows, but more of a journey within, late night vibe, immersive art and incredible location. It will be exciting to see what they plan next, their Lost In A Moment party series has thrown events on remote islands and in abandoned castles.

Especially sonically, Italy’s Life and Death and Germany’s Innervisions are two of dance music’s most ambitious collectives. The lineup was made up some of the finest underground talent like Ben UFO, Kink, Soul Clap and so many more. They offered sounds at the forefront of electronic music, fueling the dancefloor until the morning light.
