All the Way Live // Winter Music Conference

Miami is known as the gateway to the Americas, but it felt more like the gateway to the universe when worlds converged in the city last week for its annual Winter Music Conference. FAT hit the ground running with his trusty Flip in tow, all the better to bring you inside the sunny, sweaty scene. The week was a rapid-fire succession of parties and performances from some of the hottest artists creating dance music in its many guises: There was Estelle smooth operating at Giant Step’s annual Sunset Soiree at the Delano Hotel, Kelis rocking it young, fresh n new poolside at the W Hotel, LA pranksters Electrolightz spitting rhymes for the pretty girls at The Fontainebleau, electropopsters The Golden Filter in sassy seduction mode, M.I.A. protégé Rye Rye showing us what Baltimore Club is really all about, and W Hotels Global Music Director Michaelangelo L’Aqua schooling us on the balcony overlooking yet another perfect MIA sunset.
