The annual Winter Music Conference held in Miami, Florida, can be one of the craziest places in the country to be in early spring, and this year was no exception. While there is a broad range of music being showcased, there is still a heavy hip-hop influence in the 305. Scratch Academy Miami was able to host a Scratch Summit during WMC and brought through hip-hop legends including 2 Live Crew, DJ Cash Money, and more. The summit included speech panels, DJ battles, showcases and other DJ oriented activities, all hosted by the renowned academy. It’s a beautiful thing to see turntablism thriving in sunny south Florida. Peep the recap video below.
