Miami Boogie Gems - Mixed by Induce

You have to have a certain palate for Miami music to enjoy this mix. Description below.

Miami producer-cum-singer Induce has always been drawn to the sounds of soul and R&B. Stories of him as a five-year-old singing (loudly) Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” in his local department store—his mother half-amused, half-horrified in tow—trace his interests back to the likes of Motown, and soon enough, Michael Jackson. As the ’90s slid on, Induce later became hooked on new jack swing, Jodeci, and Boyz II Men, still traveling along this same path and expanding it into a different era.

While it’s only been in the last few years that he’s started incorporating his own vocals into songs in order to create his own take on his first love, Induce’s single “Pretty,” a boogie groove with obvious nods to Prince, taps into his years of listening experience and gets it right.

In celebration of Issue 50, Induce pays homage to his hometown via a mix for Wax Poetics comprised of Miami boogie gems.
