Miami, you steal my heart every time I visit. The heartbeat of the city is inherent in every moment. I had the immense pleasure of attending both Miami Music Week, and Ultra this year, and Miami Music Week won in my book for its never-ending (and barely sleeping) round of parties.
Best Record Label Showcase Award:
Paul Oakenfold: Tuesday I arrived and was whisked away with my new hubby for the weekend, Edmund. I was stoked because he had offered me a place to stay in Davie with his family before the festivities began for the weekend and everyone moved to their respective condos.
