EAST MiamiÂ celebrated at the Mandarin Orientalâ€™s stunning beachfront, with spectacular cocktails and tasty treats, surrounded by palm trees decked out with sparkling disco balls. And since everybody knows disco balls go best with disco, some of international DJs played down their slinkiest summer sounds. Parisian electro artist DJ Zimmer started the sizzle with his Horizontal Disco, before Amanda Warner, one half of New Yorkâ€™s acclaimed synth-pop duo MNDR, serenades the setting sun. The incomparable disco-house DJ Viceroy of San Francisco caped off the night.
