Electric Pickle is a great small room, actually two rooms, that is all about vibe and solid underground music. This year they are part of a WMC Renaissance that has everyone buzzing about Miami again with a string of solid nights guaranteed to bring crowds during conference week in March.

UK booking agency air london gives WMC attendees an underground talent night with Elon, Geddes, MANIK, Nitin, and Simon Baker. On the downside, everyone else is going to be appearing elsewhere and Kate Simko is the Flaming Lips of dance music, playing every gig, everywhere, all the time, so if you miss this event the world won’t come to stunning conclusion.

Planet E - From Detroit With Love Wednesday, March 21st
Planet E - From Detroit With Love
Every festival seems to have a line-up with Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, and one other Detroit legend, this time Stacey Pullen. We hate to admit, but these guys have become the Dave Matthews Band and Jack Johnson of the dance music festival circuit, on every line-up, To his credit, Saunderson will be performing live with Innercity to keep in line with the Miami vibe and support from Cassy and Paul Woolford makes this a little more than your average Detroit-themed party.

Expect a lot of men in ugly t-shirts and glasses at this one. This is where all the hipsters will be and we’re excited about PillowTalk and Voices of Black so there is definitely much interested there. But this sound feels so last year in terms of freshness and feels more like a brand seeking positioning in the marketplace these days. We predict full-on TV friendly pantomiming in the next 1-3 years.

Guy Gerber brings back his label showcase this year to WMC with some cool line-up choices like Martin Buttrich, tINI, Bill Patrick, and Maayan Nidam all on the same bill. Unfortunately, the trend in all musics these days is to see a lot of the same names over and over and that is definitely the case here.

Get Lost Miami 7th Session Saturday, March 24th

You won’t get in to this party unless you are a charter member of the 1% club, but with a line up like this one you already knew that. Crosstown Rebels is the sound of now and should be what everyone is talking about when all is said and done in Miami this year.

Giant Throbbing Pickle Invades Miami Sunday, March 25th

This party is a full day of madness to close out the conference this year. The big event give the promoters carte blanche in terms of talent and so we get a well-rounded event with a diverse line-up. We’re extra excited about Tensnake live, My Favorite Robot, and Crazy P (also live). There are also things we don’t care about or we feel are overexposed but these are equally balanced by cats like Deetron, Miguel Puente & Sishi Rösch, and our personal favorite – more to be announced. Don’t expect to find yourself easily acquiring tickets unless you are of robber baron or cocaine kingpin status but consider yourself lucky if you are in attendance.
