Paul Morris started the booking agency AM Only
in 1995, while he was a student at the University of Florida. It was a fortuitous time, right when dance music was about to break big into this country's consciousness. As electronic sounds shifted through the rave scene and beyond, AM Only continued to grow and change right along with it. These days, it's one of the top booking agencies in the world, period, and its annual Winter Music Conference party, One Night Only, remains one of the most anticipated. It's easy to see why: AM Only reps huge names in every genre, and for the one-off get-down corrals them all into the same club.
If you were to attend from start to finish, you would hardly need to attend anything else at conference at all. There's big-room aerobic house from Bad Boy Bill and Behrouz, drum 'n' bass from Shy FX, electro-house from the likes of Kill the Noise and Treasure Fingers, techno from Matt Tolfrey and Jamie Jones, and basically everything else from serious names like Cajmere, Congorock, Japanese Popstars, Tommie Sunshine, Victor Calderone ... and some 50-plus other names. If you score tickets in advance, that's under a buck a superstar DJ.
