WMC week wouldn’t be complete without Red Bull giving South Beach wings
The Winter Music Conference went down this past week in Miami and Red Bull was on the beach providing entertainment for all on South Beach. The energy drink brought back their epic Guest House this past weekend. Not only did they roll out a line-up full of great EDM acts like Zed’s Dead and Skrillex, but RiFF RAFF, Far East Movement, Wyclef Jean and popular rappers Trinidad James & Waka Flocka came through to perform alongside DJ’s like Diplo for the electronic pool party.
“It was nothing new man,” the Brick Squad rapper told The Source. “Just another day of work.”
Waka is no stranger to the EDM world. Not only has he gotten close with Diplo and his label Mad Decent, but he’s got some more collaborations on the way for his next project, Flockadelics.
“I got records with Diplo, Yellow Claw, Steve Aoki, Girl Talk, Flosstradamus. I got records with everybody”.
During day three of the weekend-long event, Trinidad James also took to the DJ booth with Diplo to perform their new single. Since his career took off two years ago, James has made a name for himself in Hip-Hop but now the Def Jam rapper is set on getting more involved with EDM.
“It was fun man,” said James. “I’m definitely trying to work with any EDM producers or DJ’s that want to do good music generally, from Diplo and Mad Decent to Tiesto.”
The amazing musical acts rocked the rooftop of the Gale hotel on Collins Ave. With the the venue reaching maximum the limit throughout the weekend, the party was jam-packed with patrons from all over Miami. Not only did the party pop off during the day, but the late night sessions kept the hotel rocking all night. Richie Hawtin and his Minus Records labelmates along with Solomun, LuckyMe and PMR dominated the Breakfast Club in the basement throughout the weekend.
Between the poolside music and several activities below deck like an Instagram print station, foosball, and a ping-pong table, the Guest House proved to be one of most active events on South Beach. Plenty of familair faces also came through including Diddy, Guy Gerber, Reggie Bush, Carl Cox and more. If you didn’t get to make it out to all the fun in the sun, check out some exclusive photos of the event here.
