WMC 2010: Mad Fools Party with Buraka Som Sistema, Kill the Noise, Jokers of the Scene at Electric Pickle March 27

Finally, here it is. Poplife has announced its annual WMC party, and not a moment to spare -- cutting it close there kids. This year Miami's perennial hipster party is teaming up with Mad Decent and Fool's Gold to bring you Mad Fools.

The party features an endless list of DJs taking over all three areas at Electric Pickle (2826 N Miami Ave., Miami) on Saturday, March 27. Lineup includes DJ Dinosaur vs. DJ Canada, Congorock, Kill the Noise, Hardwel, Flashing Lights (Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres, Jubilee), Jokers of the Scene, Dre Skull, J-Wow, DJ Sega, Nacho Lovers, Savage Skulls, Nadastrom, L-VIS 1990, Breakage, Craze, Nick the V, Jillionaire, and, surprisingly more "mega" surprise guests.

We're really excited about hearing J-Wow spin -- no not JWoww of Jersey Shore fame, J-Wow of Portugal's Buraka Som Sistema, who gained popularity particularly after M.I.A. sang on their track "Sound of Kuduro." The track, as most of their work, exemplifies kuduro, a musical genre originally from Angola, which spread to Portugal in the '90s.

But that's not even the best part. All this, and more, can be yours for free. That's right, the party is free!
