FRUKT at the Winter Music Conference

FRUKT, fresh from the bustling streets of Austin and SXSW, swapped indie guitars for EDM turntables, as they came face to face with the unstoppable nightlife of Miami for this year's Winter Music Conference.

One thing became very clear from WMC this year, and that is that the beast that ignorantly gets labelled "dance music" is far from slain.

Guetta continues to establish himself as one of the world's biggest music stars - nevermind just within the confines of a genre - whilst the likes of van Burren and Tiesto continue to sell out stadiums across the world.

New stars Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles, Seth Troxler et al are also now showing the old boys and girls how it's done. Meanwhile, Ultra Festival is enjoying its biggest year to date - with 150,000 dance music fans partying over 3 days in the Miami sunshine to an electronic music soundtrack.

The beat goes on....
