I DON'T KNOW WHY I NEVER POSTED THIS AND IT'S BEEN SITTING IN MY DRAFTS FOR MONTHS
Jeni, Adrian, Dante, and I went to LA sometime in March. However we had some spare time so we met up with our fellow bay area companions who now reside in LA: Francis, Ant, Jordan, and Kitty while we were out there. Damn near felt like a movie with those kids. I always tend to forget how awesome bay cats are. You know why? Because we literally don't party like your typical Americans. I feel like bay ppl are like always down to turn up and act a fool no matter time of day. You know our style... like gig/dance/talk that bay lingo only we understand. But what was interesting that I noticed is that LA's night life is so different. Like people don't like to dance, they kind of just sit around in their bottle service booth and just straight flex. Last summer I went to a Do Over party in LA and I was with my girls going dumb at our table... And a group of dudes tapped my shoulder and said "y'all are from the bay huh" I simple replied yup. And he responded "i can tell by the way you girls dance." Hahah. Anyway on our last night Francis through a ratchet function/small get together at his apartment after we got Korean BBQ, where he spun some tunes on his little controller. You know what sucked afterwards? Going straight to LAX that following day to go straight to Miami.
Miami was a fuckin trip! It was my first Miami music week I had ever attended and it was by far something I had never experienced before. AKA possibly the highlight of my year so far. Thanks to Karmaloop and Jenna. Anyway I did not sleep... No surprise there because there were so many parties going on every day/night that it was so hard to pick and choose which ones to go to. I arrived Wednesday morning and stayed till Monday. Talk about 6 days of straight work and partying. First off Julian was over here chauffeuring our asses all week long which was awesome because that dude is one interesting fellow. Possibly one of my favorite human beings on earth. But it was also clutch because hailing a cab in Miami is damn near impossible.
Jenna (@Jennatort) Julian (@LILINTERNET) and I started our first day off at the "Spinnin Sessions" day party at Nikki Beach. And to tell you the truth I knew absolutely none of the djs playing that party. But we had to meet up with Elektro mag to plan out the itinerary of the entire trip and which parties we had to attend to get full coverage at. The OWSLA "Good Times" day party in Wynnwood was the second party we all mobbed too. Such an awesome party with a killer line up. It was a sick line up for day 1. There were a shit ton of b2b sets with a lot of djs that it seemed like they had their own mini ULTRA festival in someones backyard. lol. Jenna and I obviously went straight to drinking and were taking pics of all the hot people that attended the party in their cute outfits. We also met some awesome people throughout the day. Shout out the gLAdiator boys, congorock, skrillex, Clayton, Alvin Risk plus the many other artists/djs we met. After we left that party Jenna and I went to get Cuban food and went straight to our hotel to start getting ready for the night. We couldn't decide which party we wanted to hit up then I had remembered Cashmere Cat and Boys Noize were playing at Grand Central for the HARD party. We automatically mobbed there with the Kloop team and started doing some coverage before we got wasted in the night. Ok so Miami doesn't sleep I get it... It's normal for djs to get on at like 5am and for the party to end at like 8am. Thats cool. I've been to Miami plenty of times but did not really prepare myself for WMC haha. Let's keep in mind this was only Day 1 of the entire Miami trip so far. And I had not slept prior to LA before. It gets better...........
Woke up had no time to eat (bc wanted to sleep more but had to get up) went to the red bull guest house where all these djs were scheduled to stop by and do press stuff with different media outlets. All these edm djs were fuckin with Karmaloop so they wanted to get a cameo in our video plus to the fact that @LILINTERNET was the one filiming. Which was dope because Julian was handling the interviews at this point and he was just so hilarious. We ran it back to our hotel after got ready and went out to Grand Central for the Hard party. I forgot who was even playing. OHHHHH Cashmere Cat and Boys Noize were playing. I think we went to see MIA but she canceled last minute. Left the venue at 6am.
Woke up still on 2 hours of sleep, got coffee alone went to do more interviews with Jenna and Julian. Left to meet up with Aaron in downtown Miami. Which I started to realize how much cooler Downtown Miami is compared to South Beach. After the 72 times of going on that Biscayne bridge thingy I started wishing I was staying downtown at that point. Anyway we went to little Cuba and got Cuban sandwiches with Julio and Aaron. We dipped after that to a studio where I was lingering and falling asleep lol. We left after that got dinner and went to head to Mecca for the Team Supreme show. Crashed on a scooter but thankfully only suffered bruises and cuts. THANK YOU LORD. However I was def walking with a limp a ~pimp limp~ I got wayyyyyyyyyysted at Mecca. I think it was good that I got drunk just so I wouldn't feel the pain from the accident lol. I got so drunk to the point where I made Julian drop me off to my hotel. And I missed Aarons set. OOPS. Got home at 5am. And woke up in the worst pain ever.
Ultra Festival day 1 we got our press passes and stuff running on adderal trying to figure out and get familiar with the festival set up. And was drinking a lot of alcohol which was a bad idea because it was hot as fuck. And at this point I was over Ultra. I saw Diplo, Carnage, and Kaskade play. Which was awesome. The sound system and visuals the festival used was top notch. Probably the most innovative festival I've been too. I just wished I had more energy that day to enjoy the festival. I left and we had to get ready for the Fools Gold Party at grand central. Got there with Julian and filmed Nina and Anna Lunoe in a convertible for her ALL OUT music video.
Red Bull Guest House for the Mad Decent pool party where Carmack, Liz, Diplo, DJ Snake, Waka Flocka etc... played. It was a shit show the entire time. The workers sucked. I was wired on Red Bulls I think my heart stopped beating for an hour. I fell asleep on the cabana couch. Drank more vodka. lol Left the party to go to the Do Over party where Kaytranada was playing in Wynwood. Walked around and saw art with Aaron. Went to the coolest backyard looking bar where Just Blaze and his mom were just chillin. Sat with them and danced. Then left and went into a jacuzzi. My body was so sore and tired I couldn't handle the party anymore.
Day 6: Last day
Did the Delano Beach Club for Adventure Club and GTA during the day. Left around 4 pm and went to club Space. WHICH STAYS OPEN TILL 11 AM. Made friends with some foreigners drank their alcohol. Left Space at 8am. Saw the sun rise with my bestfriend. Went straight back to the hotel packed my shit up and went straight to the airport.
YES I GOT SICK BY THE TIME I GOT BACK TO BOSTON. BOTTOM LINE AND MORAL TO THE STORY IS... IF I GO TO WMC NEXT YEAR I NEED TO PREPARE SOME UPPERS AND PACK MORE BATHING SUITS.
