Winter Music Conference Announces 2012 Dates
Winter Music Conference
March 16-25, 2012
Miami Beach, FL
***For Immediate Release***
October 12, 2011 – South Florida, U.S.A.
Winter Music Conference (WMC) opened its 2012 season in South Florida today with the announcement of the Winter Music Conference 2012 dates. This will be the 27th annual program for what is largely regarded as the pre-eminent platform on the global music industry calendar for launching new music, technology and trends. Winter Music Conference Week 2012 happens March 16 – 25, 2012 in Miami Beach, Florida.
For 2012, WMC plans to further enhance the WMC experience by delivering ten non-stop days of music programming in Miami Beach and Miami. This expansion will wrap the program week with two full weekends of parties and events. WMC Co-founder, Bill Kelly, explains, “Expanding the WMC dates was an easy decision given the high demand of artists, businesses and industry delegates. Miami Beach and the greater Miami area boast some of the most celebrated event and club venues as well as the hotels and resorts that comprise South Beach’s famed Art Deco District. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops and every sort of possible entertainment venue are filled to capacity during WMC Week to the point where five days just wasn’t enough.”
New for 2012, WMC will be unveiling correlated segments of its industry program dedicated to music and fashion on its opening weekend and indie rock meets electronica programming under the WMC Rocks header on the closing weekend, in addition to its standard programming and events. More details will be announced over the coming weeks.

Red Equal Sign Mint (above).
What several heads are unequivocally pronouncing the best Ecstasy in the nation–the Mint franchise, which seems to be operating out of Chicago–has dropped three new pills on the scene: Grey Equal Sign Mints and Red Microdot Mints out of Chicago, and Red/Pink Equal Sign Mints, which our friend bigslam420 in Iowa enjoyed in a most unique way–with deer steak!
Let’s take a look at bigslam420’s most interesting trip report, recently filed with www.pillreports.com:
|Date Submitted:||December 17, 2010, 2:15 pm GMT|
|Name:||Red Equal Sign =|
|Colour:||Red with red specs|
|Texture:||Hard pressed, Chalky|
|Edges:||smooth, slightly beveled bottom|
|Report Quality Rating:||(5 stars, 1 vote)|
|Description:||Was made to test this pill out my friend gave me one and told me to test it out. Heard these were Mint man rolls. So I prepared.|
|User Report:||First off to the other red =s out there the reports are right on Most enjoyable roll i’ve had. Tasted and looked similar in color even to some of the recent rock molly i had. SUPER BITTER.
4:20-Smokin a bowl an friend tells me to test it out. Tarted during our bowl.
4:45-Started just rattling couldnt shut up. Jammin to sum tunes feelin it coming.
5:20-Boom I felt it in my face and my legs. Couldn’t stand my legs were jello. Best feeling ive had off a roll.
6:20-Called my ride up from my friends to come and get me an bring me to the bar and i got a couple sodas.
7:20-The Rush is finely warring off feeling really spacey right now.
7:30-Reach my vehicle. Smoked a cig with my buddy an then parted ways drove home.
8:00-Made it home just fine still feeling really spacey yet up and focused.
8:30-Ate some deer steak just fine felt good still just very spacey an still could talk for hours
9-1am- Layed in my bed watched movies spaced out just up texting my girl an a few other friends still the urge to talk.
1:20 or so Passed out. Good night sweetheart ;]
Great rolls 15/10 love you mint man. green A’s are my next to test
bigslam420? When you talk about testing a roll, you make scientific types think that you are going to actually test the roll, and not sample it. Anyway, we are getting the idea. The loud support for Mints of all sorts coming from the Chicago area are heard very clearly here. It’s not to say NYC has nothing going for it right now because that’s not true. We are getting a lot of MDMA powder here right now, and real G Spots keep popping up, and at 395 mgs, and unadulterated, we can’t see as how Mints half the size are better. Especially since we have tried Orange and Blue G Spots and are very impressed.
But the arguments from the Chicago contingent, which is vehemently proud of its local product, are right on. There are several fake G Spots here, and there doesn’t seem to be any fake Mints. And we understand that pride very well. Personally, I am still singing the praises of White Sunflowers and Big Number Ones, MDA pills that set this scene on fire and virtually controlled it from approximately 2002-2006.
Here are the links to the other reports on the new Mints mentioned above, that unfortunately, we have yet to see pics of. We are especially curious to see the Microdot Mint, though we are fairly sure it looks like the Bowling Ball Mint, except with only 1 dot. Still, Microdots were big pills here in the scene about 10 years ago, and since the name pays homage to LSD, they have our attention.
http://www.pillreports.com/index.php?page=display_pill&id=24452 (Grey Equal Sign)
And here are some links to Mints we have followed throughout the course of this page:
One word of caution to the Mint makers: a few months back, I received a suspicious comment from someone looking for Mints in Chicago, and I totally, 100 % feel that it was the D.E.A. soliciting. If you are interested in seeing the comment and my reply, just go through the comments. But it was very shady. Watch out for stupid people, feel? Hate for anyone’s good thing to end like that.

The end of this summer seems to us to have been an abysmal season for Ecstasy users in the states and abroad, according to the laboratories at www.ecstasydata.org, www.streetwork.com (Switzerland), and www.energycontrol.org (Spain). Now let’s weigh in on the sorry bunch of pills above, starting with the first and third pills from the top, Chicas and Rosas (both from Spain), which seem to us like they may be from the same maker, because of the odd and disturbing ingredients. Admittedly, we are going out on a limb by drawing the conclusion that the two pills are linked, especially since we aren’t privvy to composition ratios on these pills. Yet, we’ve been at this quite a while, and are having trouble recalling seeing Metoclopramide as an adulterant. In fact, 6 of the pills analyzed contain Metoclopramide, which is generally a heart burn/ulcer medication.
This chemical is especially dangerous because, as is explained at the web address above, it can cause a condition called tardive diskinesia, which causes involuntary muscle spasms, especially in the face. Women are especially subject to tardive diskinesia. We are very disappointed that this ingredient has found its way into the composition of pills sold as Ecstasy, and are extremely alarmed at the rate with which it is being found in pills sold as Ecstasy recently. This is not to mention the other ingredient found in Chicas and Rosas, as well as in the Pink Cats, White Rolexes, Red Speckled Hearts, and White Bentleys found above: meta-Chlorophenylpiperazine. mCPP is a common herbicide, making the 6 pills containing mCPP and Metoclopramide flat dangerous in our opinion.
It’s also disheartening, if not unexpected, to see the Rolex brand of Ecstasy exploited in this way, and with such dangerous ingredients.
We’ve also noticed, going back a few years, a disturbing pattern with the Mac brand of Ecstasy. At first, we were seeing many outpressed Macs that were piperazines, but as you can see above, there are two Macs recently tested that contain bad ingredients and no good ingredients. Both of these Macs are impressed. The Red Macs containing piperazines (TFMPP) and caffeine and the Yellow Macs containing just caffeine.
Once again, we see a few fake/adulterated pills that are outpresses or cutouts, in keeping with our preconceived notions about both types of Ecstasy shapes (Blue Smileys, Pink Bulls, White Hearts, and Blue Hearts). Adding to the confusion is that 2 different Blue Hearts are going around Europe. One of which, quite disturbingly, is 1 of only 2 pills tested since August 25th that are unadulterated MDMA pills. The other being Green Speckled Stars, which were sent to www.ecstasydata.org labs from Manchester, England.
Aside from Metoclopramide, we were disturbed and surprised by some of the other adulterants that have shown up recently in the lab results. Bisoprolol, a drug used to treat hypertension with a littany of side effects, albeit “mild ones”, shows up as the only ingredient in the White Hearts cutout above. Read about Bisoprolol at the link attached below.
The White Loftons contain Buflomedil, a drug used to combat arterial disease. Buflomedil is not F.D.A. approved in the United States.
Domperidone is an ingredient in the White Rolexes, Pink Cats, and Red Hearts, found above. We found Domperidone to be an especially disturbing adulterant because it increases prolactin production, which leads to increased estrogen in both females and males.
Six of the above pills contain 4-Fluoroamphetamine, which causes alertness and mild euphoria, but would be unimpressive to someone who purchases it expecting it to be MDMA or MDA.
White LN’s from Long Island, NY contain Phentermine, a weight loss drug. Phentermine is an addictive appetite suppresant which mixes poorly with a wide variety of commonly taken medications.
- 2 pills contained MDMA and were not adulterated (Blue Hearts cutout, Green Speckled Stars)
- 3 pills contained MDMA and were adulterated with caffeine or with caffeine plus “amphetamines”
- 31 pills/substances were adulterated
- 13 pills contained piperazines
- 10 pills were adulterated with or contained only amphetamines
- 1 pill contained only caffeine
- 11 pills contained adulterants realtively new to the scene in our experience
- 2 pills contained caffeine and amphetamines only
The European scene is even more unsettling than the American scene, when weighing these lab results. All the more reason for Europeans to be especially careful, and to test their pills stringently. Especially when considering the dangerous nature of some of the “new” adulterants found in pills popping up in Spain and Switzerland.
Our prevailing thought? Europe has been saturated with piperazines, and so fake makers are cutting piperazines to disguise their taste and effects. This is a trend I would expect to see in America eventually as well. Everyone needs to keep testing, and it might not be a bad idea to stock up on clean pills when you can.
Be Very Careful,

Blue Lollipop Pokeballs have hit Utah, and they have rookie tripper sam ketchum raving. Let’s take a look at his report, submitted earlier to www.pillreports.com:

|Report Quality Rating:||(5 stars, 1 vote)|
|Description:||Looked just like all the blue pokeballs ive seen listed on this site, thus far.
also- Heard a friend say they where Triple stacks.
Word of mouth so i dunno, but read user description and decide for yourself 🙂
(photo copied from “trensetta” thanks )
Dunno what was in it.
Heard caffeine, also heard pure mdma
|User Report:||First report, so be nice 🙂
This was my first time rolling, It was at a rave in Salt Lake City, Utah. July 17th
Got to the rave late, about 11. Hung out inside while waiting for a friend of a friend to meet up with the product, 12:00 rounded the corner and I just barely had gotten a pokeball in hand, and boy was i scared.
But im just going to cut to the chase, popped it at About 12:05 Am. From 12:05 to about 12:15 I was really nervous, then i started to relax.
12:15- 12:55 Am : im feeling good, not sure if its working, or weather or not im just really anxious, but i feel jittery, happy.
1:10- 2:30 was just Amazing. I had heard many times when people say they could ” feel ” music, I understood what they meant, I also was seeing tracers, HELLA. Some kid gave me a light show and i felt like it was going to knock me out, but not what you would expect, like every time he did an insane transition or something, it like relaxed my eyes so well that i had to close them for a second.
3:30 in the hotel, still feeling it, veryy slightly coming down.
I am for sure doing this again 🙂
Okay, sam ketchum. We’ll take your 5 star review with a grain of salt, since you are so green around the ears. And remember, it is likely that the pills you took are adulterated with caffeine.

Green Telephone Pokeballs are ‘bomb pills’ and come highly recommended, in a recent submission to www.pillreports.com by rollz out in Southern California. Let’s examine rollz’ trip report:
|Date Submitted:||July 27, 2010, 3:00 am GMT|
|Name:||Telephone Poke balls|
|Logo:||Telephone (Old School Style)|
|Report Quality Rating:||(5 stars, 1 vote)|
|Description:||This is a typical poke ball. The only reason I’m putting up a report is because the only one I found had a bunch of peeps saying that the op didn’t elaborate enough on the report. I stole the pic from krazyjoker.|
|User Report:||I took 2.5 of these through out the night. I think I dropped at 8pm (1pill) then waited a half hour to drop my next. Then once I was peaking I dropped a half. I rolled ballz. The 1st pill was enough to get my eyes wiggling right off the bat. Then when I took the next one I was even more floored. By the time the peak came and I ate the last half I was cross eyed. I felt great the entire roll. SOOOOOO Good. I didn’t notice any jaw clenching the night of, but today my jaw is so sore. I couldn’t tell you how easy it was to sleep afterwards because as I came off the roll I ate a few shrooms. It was every thing you could ask for in a bomb pill though. I would highly recommend these.|
rollz, you’re classic. Ate a few shrooms on the way down, did you? Also loved that you were “cross eyed” after that 2nd pill. Back to the mushrooms for a second: I wonder if rollz knows the incomparable vincentone.
Keep in mind, four different Pokeballs have been conclusively found to have been adulterated.

Pink/Purple Dot or Mood (above).
We recently told you about some “basement Ecstasy” that we suspected was going around in Wisconsin, and more recently, in New York.
Let’s take a look at djabsolut’s submission to www.pillreports.com:
|Date Submitted:||July 25, 2010, 1:11 am GMT|
|Colour:||pink / red|
|Report Quality Rating:||not rated|
|Description:||seen these latley around chicago area|
|Suspected Contents:||0 – please select the suspected chemical|
|User Report:||very good molly mix, very hard to fall asleep uplifting feeling, up all night baby if you know what i mean. clean and no tweaky feeling a+|
Though these Dots look different than the speckled ones from Wisconsin in the photo, we have a funny feeling that these pills are one and the same. Chicago and Wisconsin are in close geographic proximityand the differences in the photo may be cracked up to lighting and camera issues.
By the way, we aren’t suggesting that you look for these pills. As the comments attached to the report say, there is no verification that these pills have been tested, even though djabsolut says they were. And we agree with www.pillreports.com, that the report should be taken down if no proof can be provided. We hope that djabsolut can tighten it up!

Did you test these? What makes you say they are MDxx high? Please make a report or this will be deleted. Thanks – we r1*ModLooks like a mint…

You can’t post a report on a pill you haven’t tested or consumed. Feel free to make a report after you consume. Doesn’t do much good saying your gonna consume without a test result.
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 11:37 am GMT by xxdemosxx
well with it being a mint, the chi boys would for sure trust it without a test or consume report….wish these would travel back to stl for a weekend like they did years back…..
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 12:04 pm GMT by ocbudsmkr420
I agrees wer1 , delete this and if op cares to post proper user reorts.
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 4:43 pm GMT by seith
Do you have any pictures of the test results..? Even with the crap user report, reports with test results are welcome here. From what I’ve heard about the mints I do not doubt these are MDMA High.In future things to mention in the User Report are how did you take these pills? How long till they took effect? What side effects did you get, jaw clenching (bruxism), eye wiggles (nystagmus), euphoria, dilated pupils etc. How long was the peak and how was the comedown? Did you get to sleep easy and what was the next day like.
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 6:32 pm GMT by chitown rollin
does this mean the mint man is coming back or did you grab these a while ago OP? haven’t been able to find them.. maybe you found them at an event last night?
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 5:25 pm GMT by bulletpointflux

@Chitown,same here. My main guy has been out of mints for the past 3 weeks, last batch I got a taste of was the new cleaner pressed green equals. Not tryin to spread shit, but heard that mint man is on a vacation, but that doesn’t make any sense at all, he has man power to continue pressing. But anyway, anybody been hearing about some double stacks? My guy is tellin me he has some but, Im a little bit sketched out about them
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 10:48 pm GMT by chitown rollin
yup. the new green equals were definitely bomb. took em over the july 4th wknd… same time frame as u? i don’t understand how this poster got these dots though if he is really on vacation…? hopefully something comes up soon.
|Posted on July 25, 2010, 11:35 pm GMT by mintfiend
@ChitownYeah, exact time frame, I had dots and equals the 4th of july weekend. Yeah Im lookin forward to something by friday.
|Posted on July 26, 2010, 1:01 am GMT by chitown rollin
same here. i’m going to an event on friday night.. gonna be super mad if i can’t find any mints… i’ve had bad breath recently!
But we find basement Ecstasy very interesting, tested or not, from an informational standpoint.
