Celebrated German DJ-producer and label magnate Steve Bug is back in Miami on Friday to jump-start 2011 for local techno heads, courtesy of LINK.
In case you live under a rock and have yet to hear of Bug, he's been one of electronic dance music's prime movers and most influential tastemakers since the early '90s.
Pioneering early releases on Bug's Raw Elements label would introduce that smooth, minimal style prevalent in international techno today.
He would later launch the esteemed Poker Flat, Dessous and Audiomatique imprints, which with their all-star artist rosters have emerged as a global touchpoints for cutting-edge house and techno.
Outside of WMC, Bug's appearances last year were mainly tag sets with fellow techno luminaries like Camea and Adultnapper, making this Friday night a rare opportunity to enjoy an exclusive, extended set by this world-class DJ. Additional sounds will be provided by LINK residents Maurizio & Danyeliono and Hardline.
