Getting the Carl Cox & Friends 10 Year Anniversary started early Saturday is none other than Germany's Monika Kruse. While last year we had Nicole Moudaber's Techno shaking the rafters of the MegaStructure, this time around we are delighted to have Monika lead us through a groovy and sweltering afternoon with her mixing expertise. Citing Hip-Hop, Funk, and House as the earliest influences that got her career moving back in '91, Monika has spent over twenty years crafting a sound that fits like a glove into the Miami vibe. Take her scorchingly loud Latin-infused beats, add Florida's humidity, and you have a party that'll have you drenched and loving it. Ultra is Monika's only confirmed US festival stop this season, so see you guys Saturday for an atmosphere that will surely be unmatched!
