There is no disputing it, Defected Records and Strictly Rhythm are the world’s leading house labels. Never bandwagon jumping, they have resolved to present only the best contemporary house music to the world’s club scene. Both labels combine this year to bring all the new talent to one essential party in South Beach. The result: Strictly Defected at Cameo.

Every year the Miami Winter Music Conference provides the opportunity for the labels to set up their stalls for the coming year and present the very best of what they have to offer. 2010 brings us a radical change from previous years and with new artists signed, new music and a new venue confirmed, there is a lot to talk about.

This year our event moves to Cameo, this premier Miami club space with its glamorous setting and huge sound system will be an important focal point during the conference. This is the place where the tracks of the year will be broken, all upfront, all fresh, all getting their first dance floor road test.

As ever the truly international line-up does not disappoint, with new roster additions that include Riva Starr, the Southern Italian House producer famed for his quirky and fun house productions. There will also be special appearances from Spain’s David Penn, Holland’s Chocolate Puma and Japan’s Studio Apartment. Look out too for Quentin Harris, one of Strictly Rhythm’s cornerstone artists who will be playing exclusive new cuts from his forthcoming artist album ‘Sac-ri-fice’.

It’s not just DJ’s, we have live performances by the legendary percussionist Shovell and Rae, the sexy voice behind Sandy Rivera’s ‘Can’t Stop’ and ATFC ‘Give Me Luv’. With a wealth of other Strictly and Defected world talent billed, this is the definitive House Music club night of the conference for all of those lucky enough to be in Florida this year.

The world’s biggest House labels Defected and Strictly Rhythm officially announce their Miami party, the ultimate House Music showcase of the year on the 23rd March at the Cameo Club, South Beach.
