Since kind fate brought Droog and Matt Tolfrey together at a Miami after-hours 5 moons ago, choice meetings of their beloved labels – Culprit and Leftroom respectively – has become a match made in party heaven. This perfect trans-Atlantic union has been strengthened through places and times, seeing the respective clans come together for joyous affairs at all the right festivals and gatherings: WMC, Sonar, BPM and beyond.
Culprit and Leftroom, while being grounded in the urban sub-cultures of the metropolises that spawned them – Los Angeles and London – share a common bond that stretches beyond an occasional though unforgettable party. The labels’ dedication to the best of young global talent and respect paid to their deep underground roots make for a mutual ethos that will surely result in many more choice meetings to come through the years.
This year’s WMC party is made all the more exciting by the labels’ coming together with the venerable San Francisco-based Listed Production team. Listed is a true WMC staple, having been throwing exceptional parties in Miami for years. Their trusted stewardship will surely guide this party into the realm of legendary.
A very special mention goes to Moscow’s Gipsy crew, a notable dance music upstart if there ever was any. This party brand has quickly put the global scene on notice with incredible “mini-festival” parties at their flagship club. Ever ambitious, the Gipsy team is now expanding into the global party-place and starting their own agency. By supporting this choicest of meetings, it’s clear that they have chosen wisely!
