Wisin brought the heat and the fabled La Base party from Puerto Rico to Miami at Oasis Wynwood for Latin Music Week 2023 on Tuesday (Oct. 3). During his invigorating set that kicked off close to midnight and was presented by Smirnoff, he delivered an electrifying show that had the packed house dancing.
Clad in black leather, including a Mad Max-esque vest and a baseball cap, the Puerto Rican icon performed his hits in a set filled with old and new reggaetón songs, including hard-hitting classics such as “Traviesa” and “Muévelo.”
One of the evening’s highlights was his surprise guest, the Dominican dembow sensation El Alfa, who joined him on stage for a thrilling delivery of “Paleta Pa To El Mundo.” Other special guests included Luny Tunes and DJ Nelson, who were behind spinning their biggest dance-floor hits. Notably, this event marks the first-ever La Base party outside of Puerto Rico.
On Wednesday (Oct. 4) at 1:15 p.m. ET, the “Escápate Conmigo” hitmaker will be participating in a panel discussion titled Wisin & La Base: Eye of the Tiger, presented by Smirnoff. This conversation will also bring together reggaetón icons Luny, Tunes, DJ Nelson and Hyde, and will see them delve into the art of identifying and creating chart-topping hits. This panel discussion is set to provide insight into Wisin’s visionary label and music company, La Base.
