Six years in the making

Miami’s funkiest dance party
— Carla Torres, Ocean Drive Magazine

The Beginning

Slap & Tickle has been a staple in the Miami music scene since its inception in early 2012. Resident DJ's Pirate Stereo and Santiago Caballero are household names beyond city limits, luring in the most discerning dance music lovers. The party -which highlights deep house, indie, and electronic music-  is a favorite amongst nightlife influencers, music professionals and selective partygoers. Faithful guests follow the Slap & Tickle name from venue to venue, with the brand dominating the scene on their nights. 

Originally, S&T made its home at the Electric Pickle, choosing to take over Tuesday nights because, well, there was nothing else happening. Back in 2012, Eyal Agai aka Pirate Stereo and co-founders Santiago Caballero and Troy Kurtz, wanted a place where they could let loose on the decks and not worry about catering to a bottle-service atmosphere.

In the spring of 2013, the party moved to Bardot and has been happening there ever since, having recently hit the 5 year milestone. 

Along with an awesome weekly showcase of talented DJ's and good spirits (of both variety) Slap & Tickle brings along a unique philosophy: everyone behind the decks gets to play exactly what they love. Special guests vary week to week ranging from local up and comers to international star DJs. 

Agai and Caballero still play every week and are the driving forces behind this party. They've put blood, sweat, and tears into keeping it alive, despite changing venues, evolving styles, and the ever-fickle reality of Miami's music scene.
