wmc bombs

i got this off a wesite very interesting checck it out!


The dust has settled on another year at Miami's Winter Music Conference - the dance music industry expo that is traditionally where the big summer anthems are made and broken.

We assembled a crack team of the world's top DJs to ask them what their biggest track from Miami was. Some explained excitedly, while others simply told us the name of the track and left us to stew until we can hear the tune itself. We've included links to listen where possible...

John Acquaviva

Acquaviva & Giacomotto – Sofa King (Mark Mendes Remix)
“Mark Mendes is one of the next digital DJ superstars and he hooked up with us to make the biggest underground club track in a while.”

Above & Beyond

Interplay & Electrobios - With You [Anjunadeep]

“This one's on our housier Anjunadeep label but perfect for the Miami sunshine. It features a killer bassline and old school piano line and has been supported by everyone from Desyn Masiello to Armin Van Buuren”

Ferry Corsten

Georgia - Ode to '99 [Levare Recordings]

An absolutely top trancer from Dutch female producer Georgia. I played this record at Space and at the Ultra Music Fest and it just does the job the way a trance record is supposed to do. Smiles on faces and hands in the air. Solid!

Paul van Dyk

John O'Bir - Ways and Means [?]

It is a fantastic track from a brilliant album which will be released soon. John played it for the first time in Miami at our VONYC sessions. Ways and Means is one of most outstanding tracks of the album. It's a top-notch production with goosebump effect.
A catchy, addictive little melody, athmospheric synths, warm and driving bass line and the subtle strings harmony delivers pure diving into and drifting away feeling.


Prompt - Evolve [7noise]

“I love it because it’s funky and different…check it out!”

The Shapeshifters

Hagenaar & Albrecht - What Would We Do [Nocturnal Groove]

"Been playing this record for a couple of months now and it gets a huge reaction every time we drop it, and especially in the sunny climes of SouthBeach, so much that we signed it!"

Andrew Grant (Circo Loco)

Laurent Garnier - Back To My Roots [Innvervisions]

“Laurent Garnier’snew track that is 14 minutes long. Sweet natural percussion and drums that just tease you for about 10 minutes…then the jam kicks in and it's just gorgeous.”

Grant/Turner - Babydrugs [Minisketch]

"Heard this one a lot and it's just BUMPING from the first minute to the last”.

Adam K

Eric Prydz - Pjanoo

"Top notch production with an undeniable piano hook that catches everyone right in that sweet spot. This tune is one of those overnight classics. Perfect to hold down that warm Miami WMC vibe."

Sebastian Leger - Jaguar
"The original of this tune worked for a decade and I'm sure Leger's remake will move crowds for many years to come. The melody and feel good energy from this track rocked by Leger's superb productions make for a killer combination and set the mood for any dance floor. This one just won't go away. Rocking WMC all over again!"

Chris Lake
