Yesterday, Little Dragon took conga, junkanoo, timba, breaks, hip-hop, indie, funk, New Wave, and ran them through Miami like a fastboat to Nassau at Ultra Music Festival's Live Stage.

The Swedish indie band featured live instrumentation on electronic triggers and sounded like a 2012 Blondie.

The keyboards washes, dropping bass, tropical beats, and playful female vocals fit Miami beautifully.

At the front of the stage, it never got packed. But people were chilling hard and watching the band from as far away as 400 feet, hanging out on patches of concrete and grass at the amphitheatre's edge.

The sound quality was crystal clear and you could hear every snare crack, sound effect, and note through the mike.

The people were into it. They put their hands in the air, bobbbed their heads, and danced.
