Good morning, beat freak.
Over the last seven days, you've gotten down with a genderqueer rapper in Overtown, raged at each and every free fucking party on the sked (not to mention WMC and MMW's fifteen best club bashes), and hit the Skrillex mosh pit at Ultra Music Festival.
Still, there's 36 hours left till this week-long rave is officially over. So drag yourself outta that gutter, choked down some Special K (not the breakfast cereal), and check out today's top Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week parties.
