Michael Brun Talks OneRepublic Collab & Haitian Roots at Miami Music Week: Watch

They say you should write what you know, and for Michael Brun, that means creating a new style of dance music rooted in traditional and modern commercial Haitian culture. The young producer has truly embraced his home country in recent productions and with his entire Miami Music Week production. He held a free block party in the Little Haiti neighborhood, just north of downtown, and helped introduce electronic music to the area.

Billboard Dance founder Matt Medved spoke with Brun about the party, his festival on the island, and his recent work with One Republic and Major Lazer's Walshy Fire in an exclusive interview on camera at the SiriusXM Music Lounge. Check it out below.
