One Night Only – AM Only & Undocumented Management Showcase
Apr 7th, 2010
Category: 12th Planet, Miami, MSTRKRFT, Winter Music Conference
What a massive this party was! Taking up two ginormous clubs, Karu & Y and The Ice Palace, this event, featuring over 70 artists and DJs, lasted over 12 hours. Unfortunately, due to my frenetic WMC coverage schedule, I was not able to make it to this party until shortly after 1am. I missed several of the acts that I really wanted to see, like Kill the Noize, Craze and Kid Lightning.
When I walked in to the building, I was a little confused with the event set up. I spent a lot of time in a very small room close to the entrance where I had the chance to catch some killer sets by AC Slater/Star Eyes and The Japanese Popstars.
After awhile, I heard everyone buzzing about the MSTRKRFT set starting up. I ran around the club looking at set times and for any indication that MSTRKRFT was going to play. Finally, I saw a crowd of people walking out a door that was in the back of what I thought was The Ice Palace.
I decided to follow them and was led to a completely different club. I knew that their were two clubs involved in this event, but had no clue that they were each so large. I made my way through what I would consider to be a bit of a maze, and finally found MSTRKRFT!
I am glad I didn’t give up the search because their set (as usual) was banging! The amount of work they do during their performance is incredible (lots of knob twisting and jumping around!). Busy P even dropped by to jam out to the guys’ set.
Other artists at this showcase that people were raving about all weekend included:
Another cool thing about this party was that some of the artists were performing at the Ultra Music Festival as well (Dj Dan, The Japanese Popstars, Felix Cartal, Donald Glaude); but, those who attended this party got to enjoy them in a more intimate club atmosphere.
