For about 10 years between the late 90s and throughout the naughts, Winter Music Conference in Miami was pretty much the greatest place on god’s green Earth. Directly following SXSW, WMC was the electronic/dance/EDM equivalent, except with turquoise water, bikinis, late night Cuban food and gorgeous art deco hotels. Just the thought of it makes [...]
