If there's one party during WMC week that truly encapsulates the transatlantic tech-house zeitgeist, it's Leftroom vs. Culprit at Treehouse Miami Beach on March 21.
And that's because the party showcases two of the scene's most hotly tipped labels from (literally) both sides of the pond -- the UK's Leftroom and Los Angeles's Culprit.
Leftroom Records is the label of esteemed London-based DJ-producer Matt Tolfrey and has helped foster the careers of such budding international stars as Inxec, Waifs & Strays and Laura Jones. Meanwhile Culprit LA, a North American counterpart of sorts, is spearheaded by DJ-production threesome Droog and responsible for some major floor destroyers by the likes of Lee Foss, Shonky and MANIK.
So pairing the two labels together under one roof is pure hedonistic genius (thank the local masterminds behind LINK and Miami Rebels) and is guaranteed to be one of the highlights of this year's Conference week.
