Exhaustion is setting in, but we here at Crossfade are trying to keep up the pace. So we are going to make this quick so we can go back to bed in order to rest up for Day 1 of Ultra Music Festival.
Here is a video we shot Wednesday at Bar (28 NE 14th Street, Miami) on Drop the Lime at the Come Here Often? party sponsored by Scion. It was perhaps one of the most enjoyable parties we've been to so far. The atmosphere was so laid back, and with 2-for-1 Red Stripes and free barbecue, it felt more like a house party in someone's backyard than a WMC event. We'd definitely like to see more parties take this route.
If you missed out on the Trouble & Bass leader, don't worry Drop the Lime has plenty of more appearances include the big T&B shindig at White Room Saturday night.
