Possible Beatport WMC pool party line-up?

"Today Beatportal sat in on a Beatport marketing meeting about the upcoming Winter Music Conference in Miami where the line-up for the Beatport WMC pool party was being discussed.

We were strictly forbidden from printing the line-up as it’s not 100% confirmed yet. So we haven’t.

All we’ve done, is take a photo of a piece of paper that was thrown into the trash that contains some of the names that are playing at the pool party. We still haven’t printed anything.

We can confirm the Beatport pool party is due to take place at Remix Hotel (The National) from 26th - 29th March. But we still haven’t said nothing about the line-uP."

Word on the Street: Myspace the source of all info

It's amazing how much you can find you about someone when you go snooping on their myspace. The following dates and lineup are gathered from various artists' myspace pages:

Mr. Dark Drums Lawler, has some news on his myspace. Here's where it gets interesting he has listed Viva music Vs Cadenza. Of course our dear friend Luciano (founder of Cadenza) has to be there? I mean what kind of Viva Vs Cadenza battle it would be with out him. Hmmm, but who else could be on the line up? Let's take a look at the Cadenza the impressive roster which includes: Guido Schneider, Loco Dice, Thomas Melchior, Pier Bucci, Rhadoo and Ricardo Villalobos. I'm not going to make any assumptions it’s too early for that. But and epic battle is forming here.

Steve Lawler

Brace yourselves for this one, another WTF moment, DJ Hell at a strip club. With a name like that nothing suprises me, expect the fact that he's a really awesome dj don't the name put you off.

Dj Hell

Venezuelan up and comer Delete, who was picked up by Builtbookings and recently launched a new label Robotmusik has a couple of dates for WMC. Keep your eye on him he has a bright future.

Curiosity killed the cat, I just had to see what frenchie was up too for WMC. Very busy guy.

Cheap Sunglasses... get your pair

Cheap Sunglasses officially returns to Miami for Round Two, On Land and By Sea, with Friday's on land day event and Saturday's by Sea Boat party afternoon event. March 27th and 28th.


Cheap Sunglasses started in Miami as a concept outdoor party, but has quickly blossomed into so much more. The Cheap Sunglasses head honchos Taimur Agha Blkmarket Membership, "Crazy" Larry Ursini Uddermadness and Memo Erkaya Bar13, have over 200 events, all told and totaled, and celebrate a year together with the WMC '09. After a long run of highly successful Cheap Sunglasses events all over the U.S., the duo are ready to celebrate a year of co-promoting events with a no holds barred tandem of events. Slated for this year is a Friday daytime event, running 10AM until Midnight, with an exclusive cast of characters. This year will also mark Cheap Sunglasses first label showcase, promoting one of the top European labels out there, Moon Harbour. Representing exclusively for Moon Harbour will be the DC 10 resident Matthias Tanzmann and hot new DJ duo and Producers Luna City Express. Couple that with Craig Richards of Fabric fame and Tobias Becker, Germany's hardest working DJ, playing only for Cheap Sunglasses, that's an incredible recipe for success. Don't forget Berlin's first Lady of Techno, Cassy, who will also be manning the decks for a sunset slot not soon to forget.

Saturday, from 1:30PM until 6:30PM, don't be anywhere but on the Biscayne Lady, Miami's most luxurious and party ready 400 person yacht. Details of the lineup are yet to be confirmed and are top secret for now, but expect a lineup even bigger and never before seen in Miami. Top artists with the best sound one can couple with Miami's finest boat is an event sure to keep them talking 'til next year.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Recently a friend pointed out the Ellen Alien is playing March 27th at Studio B, in New York. I was wondering whether or not she would make it down to Miami for a guest appearance at SSFD. She was fantastic when she played at Sunday School in '07, so her adding to the line up would be warranted. Only time will tell.

I love Lucy... Luciano that is

I told you so... In a previous post I alluded to the fact that Lucy, would be playing out side of Ultra.

Luciano has been confirmed to play:

Thursday, March 26th - WMC09 Shelborne poolside noon - 11pm LUCIANO, Loco Dice & Dennis Ferrer with opening set by Italy's angels of love Paola Poletto & DJ Sim

I guess Jon finally worked out those kinks, I suspect Luciano will be popping up at other parties too. I have a gut feeling about it.
Keep checking on the wattickets site, nothing is truly finalized till tickets go on sale.

SOS embraces WMC again...

Embrace presents the annual SOS WMC special featuring Desyn Masiello, Demi and Omid 16B at B.E.D. as a special WMC kick-off event..

SOS was born of a desire to create synergy. The multifaceted ‘rule of threes’ helps give balance to scores of compositions and also appears to apply in favour of SOS. Individually, Demi, Desyn and Omid have already excelled in the realms of electronic/house music, however, sometimes three heads beat one, six hands are better then two. With a common goal to move people, the innovative triad exist in an exciting digital era when live remixing, personal edits and inimitable shows all allow for differentiation – and this is where the dazzling SOS trailblazers shine with their icy-hot approach to DJing in the 21st century! B.E.D. is a distinctive and relaxing retreat in the middle of South Beach's hottest nightlife district.

SOS: Desyn Masiello, Omid 16B & Demi presented by Embrace Tuesday, March 24, 2009
GA Ticket Price: $15.00
Pre-Sale Ends: 5:00 PM EST - 3/24/2009

The MML or Mobile Media Master List is a social networking site with a twist. It's targeted to "the industry" and has some other unique features. The site is really gear toward music heads, even the questions asked to gather profile information are speficly about electronic music.

The MML offers a number of services including: advertising, event listings, podcast directory, and personalized calendar. Just to name a few. In essence it’s a great promotion tool for artists and events.

But the number one thing that sets the MML apart is the fact that you can get updates on your mobile phone. This is especially handy for WMC and when traveling to other big events. It's the 3rd time around for them covering WMC, and this year they will be launching version for the iPhone.

Political Asylum?

So, now that Bush will be out of office, Mr. Villabolos has no more excuses to make it to the US. Whispers of him attending WMC are in the mists but its a pure speculation at this point.

Don't leave us hanging, Ric. In the mean time us americans will have to stick to watching youtube videos.

Time For SSFD! Sunday School for Degenerates

Sunday school is back. Get your tickets now while there still cheap! Kudos on the made events people for picking this venue. Ice Palace is actually a film studio and it’s a great choice for this event, a lot more space than Pawn Shop. High ceilings and over 40,000 sq ft of party space including an out side garden. It's been used for "Raves" before, and it sets the tone right, feeling more like a warehouse than and actual studio.

And on another note let's hope Argy has sorted out any problems with his passport. :) He was missed by all last year. With a line up like this SSFD will again be on my favorites list. Pernosallly excited to see some great additions, especially Mathias Kaden (who i missed at DEMF), Martin Landsky and Stimming.

Here's a preview:

More lodging options

If your still on the hunt for a place to stay try opting for a vacation rental instead of a hotel. If your traveling in a group it just might be the better option, but hurry they go quick.

Word on the Street: Luciano up for grabs

Luciano's triumphant return to WMC is highly anticipated by all. Last time he graced miami with his prescence was at PS101:Sunday Schrool for Degenerates, during WMC 2006. So far he been confirmed to play at Ultra. The real question is, what other parties is he playing at? Will he make a retun to SSFD and will some other production company snatch him? Jon Cowan owner of Shine has expressed some interest in booking Luciano, saying in the coolljunkie forums:

"just a matter of ironing out some details but its on....".

I'll keep you guys posted...

Gear up for your WMC party

I stumbled upon this contact for local production company, so if you need gear check them out:
Event Planning, Massive Sound Systems, Lighting Rigs, Trussing Systems, Video Projection and Venues... Pro DJ Gear Rentals and Affordable.

They are some of the few that work along with hotels and are accepted by many venues for their great track record.

Still looking for a hotel? Ask Brian

The rates on most of the hotels in South Beach have raised to 15% to 20% for Spring Break and the WMC this year comparing to last, most likely because the fallen economy as they know they will sell out anyways over spring break. I have negotiated a ton of rates with the vendors this year for my clients and for you to. Don't get gouged by the vendors or Expedia, Travelocity or I have access to all 3 of their data bases anyways to sell rooms from and I can tell you the only time you get a good deal from an internet rates are when the prices are 30% to 40% off. I have deals that save several hundreds and up to a couple thousand dollars from what the public is normally paying for over WMC week. If you are interested in my services or have any friends who might be attending WMC this year feel free to share my information with them which I have given.
