It's that time of the year again... Pack your bags and head for the beach! Sorry I meant, head to Miami for the Miami Winter (Yep! Bet it's freezing - not!?) Music Conference.

It's at this mighty event that the best dance labels, DJ's and dance impresarios get together to decide what tracks will destroy the dance floors across the world and what tunes that will inevitably make up our summer soundtracks. Yes it's all work, work, work for the dance fraternity who describe the conference as "squashing a whole season of Ibiza into 5 short days"! Sounds like fun!?

OK, if can't make it to Miami, how about I bring Miami to you. "Hot bodies, pool parties, and dancing until dawn al fresco" you say... "Not exactly" I say... So how about the next best thing - Take one of the worlds top DJ's Riva Starr and ask him to squeeze all the biggest tunes from the conference onto 2 CD's just for you. Well you lucky, lucky people - that's exactly what Defected Records have done with the album 'Defected In The House Miami 10', the sound of the Winter Music Conference.

What to win a copy?.... Hahaha thought you might... Well all you have to do to win one of three copies we have to give away - is answer a simple 'Defected In The House Miami 10' related question...

This year the honor of mixing the compilation has gone to an artist that is currently one of the hottest properties in Dance music. He has fans that include Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Joris Voorne and Claude Von Stroke. He is famous for his bouncy, energetic and main room sound, his mixes and productions are full of humour, insane instruments, trombones, horns and pounding infectious beats. This really is the dj du jour â Riva Starr.

Check out his own insane production and opener of CD2, âI was drunkâ, a signature Riva Starr production, catchy, humorous, with a vibe that makes you want to dance, borrowing an almost gypsy style sound.

Itâs not just his own productions that attract attention, his remix of Reboot - Enjoy music is infectious as well as his eagerly anticipated remix Dennis Ferrer âHey Heyâ possibly this yearâs most talked about house record, not to mention the dub of his remix of La Mezcla.

Both CDâs of his mix are vibrant and punchy, with highlights that include tracks from The Crookers, Sidney Sampson, Joris Voorne, Michel Cleis, DJ Gregory, Dennis Ferrer and Timou Mass.

This is the sound of Miami brought to you in advance from the worlds freshest dance producers.
