Watch: Who Hates Heavy Metal and Thinks WMC and Ultra Should Be Friends Again? This Glitter Girl Right Here…

Watch: Who Hates Heavy Metal and Thinks WMC and Ultra Should Be Friends Again? This Glitter Girl Right Here… Ok, so when we we're down in Miami for WMC / Ultra Music Week / Miami Music Week or whatever the fuck you want to call it we were doing a shit ton of interviews with DJs and producers at our Artist Series Media Lounge. Most of our day was really spent waiting around for people to show up, so we passed the time by drinking either beer, Red Bull, Perrier or some combination with Tequila and Vodka, so it wasn't so bad. At the end of the day on Thursday (we think) we spotted a pink haired glitter girl running around with a mic and a camera...

Getting Lost With Sasha At The Shelbourne—And Finding Myself

sasha.shine.main Sasha never smiles. His face is always serious, concentrated and emanating the essence of a “boss.” Otherwise known as the tech house DJ face—smiling is not a part of the equation in these dark and heavy themes that boast minor earthquakes throughout the night. Saturday night at Shine (Shelbourne Hotel), he decided to take everyone there for a journey of emotions pretty much unparalleled to most of his prior sets. Maybe it was the ambiance of the place—extremely dark except for a colored mood lighting here and there: where...

982272IMG_1878 The night before it was Axwell’s label party, now onto Ingrosso’s. It’s pretty amazing what these guys are able to do in creating a brand, geared upon molding new artists. Refune put out their best with Ingrosso himself, Alesso, Otto Knows and Swanky Tunes. Personal as can be, WALL at the W South Beach boasted some of the most exclusive performances of the weekend.

Cracking Dawn On The Ship of Fools WMC 2012

ship-of-fools If you're one of those troopers like I am—one that leaves Sasha's set at 5 am still needing more—you come to the Listed Productions and Magnetic Grooves Ship of Fools party. This boat ride started at 6 am and cruised around till 12 pm, letting you catch the sunrise and some fine tunes on the last morning of Miami Music Week. Dance or lounge, either way you didn't miss out on good people and good times at literally the crack of dawn. When Mekanism's “Missing Love” was one of the first tracks dropped (and one of my current...
