Steam Miami's WMC 2015 Party Lineup


It may be Steam Miami's first Winter Music Conference, but the downtown club builds steadily upon old Vagabond tradition. The new leaders are veterans of the scene, and already, the week is slammed with showcases and old favorites.

From Sunday, March 22, through Friday, March 27, it's going to be Steam's two venues engorged with 50-plus DJs and hundreds of tweaking beat addicts. Prepare your body for 50 shades of house and bass so deep you might drown. Keep your head above water and check the schedule.

The 2015 program features lineups on both the outside patio of LOT 14 and indoor shenanigans by the classic bar. As the week grows, so do the events, turning into a stream of indoor/outdoor double-stage behemoths. Back, too, is the annual STACKED event, standing as the only 18 and over event of the week.

Grab your MMW gear. It's time for a trip to Space.

Space may be the final frontier, but it's one of the first places on the list of must-sees for any Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week aficionado.

It's not just a nightclub. It's a dance music institution. It stands to reason the downtown monolith would book a serious roster for the most important and fun-packed week in the EDM industry.

Who will grace the Terrace until the sun comes shining through? Who will be holdin' it down in the Loft until the last raver hangs up their tired glowing gloves?

Giorgio Moroder on DJing, Daft Punk, Retirement: "Playing Golf Is Great but Boring"

Giorgio Moroder.

"Hello, my name is Giovanni Giorgio. But you can call me Giorgio," he says before kicking off his hour-and-a-half set on the rooftop of the Gale Hotel on South Beach.

Reality is, the man needs no introduction. He's Giorgio Moroder, one of the 20th century's most influential record producers. He's worked with everyone from Donna Summer to Debbie Harry to David Bowie. However, the works that may have most firmly secured his spot in the pantheon of American pop culture are his compositions for films. Whether it be "What a Feeling" from Flashdance or "Chase" from Midnight Express or "Take My Breath Away" from Top Gun, you've encountered Moroder's work.
