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 gelled, sea-breeze-proof hair. Once we had surveyed the scene we looked for 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, however: Riot at Red Square.
The progressive-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 recordings of the event. A decade later, we stumbled upon the DAT tapes of these soundboard recordings and are proud to present them to you again.
The details are a bit shady, but based on the labeling of our tapes we’re pretty sure these recordings comprise the complete archive of this incredible show. Enjoy these transmissions from a bright point in the past.
