Planet E – “Riot at Red Square” party at WMC 2000

12 years ago dublab traveled to the Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida. We arrived in South Beach to find a land strewn with shiny shirts, vapid models and sea-breeze-proof gelled hair. Once we surveyed the scene we found every opportunity to escape the shitzy glitz of the mega-club strip and explore the outskirts where the true flavor was to be found. One thing did draw us back into the belly of the beast, “Riot at Red Square.” The progressively minded folks at Planet-E Communications helmed by Carl Craig assembled a crew of creative musicians to build a bastion of quality brain/body music amongst the slick sea that was WMC. dublab was thrilled to be blessed with permission to archive the event. A decade later we stumbled upon the DAT tapes of these sound board recordings and are now proud to present it to you again. The details are a bit shady, but based on the labeling of our tapes, we’re pretty sure the following archives feature sets by Dego and Gilb’R. Enjoy these transmissions from a bright point in the past.
