Alex Jukes

Alex Jukes is the founder and director of Jukebox PR, a press company that has grown from humble beginnings in Leeds to become a globally respected business. Working in the music, tech, leisure and nightlife sectors, the ever expanding company now has its headquarters in London, New York, Bangkok and Shanghai and deals with high end clients, international festivals like Kappa Futur Festival, Epizode and Movement, and world renowned DJs like Solomon and Carl Cox, as well as bars, restaurants and tech brands. Most recently it has launched a management arm to deal with music syncing, music law, artist and label management and the emerging Chinese market. 

All this is down to Alex’s peerless network of contacts and connections, ability to deliver great results on each and every project and reputation for professionalism. As well as this, he helped to set up SXM Festival, a festival in the Caribbean that in its first year got rave reviews from the likes of Mixmag, and boasts the best DJs from around the planet. With his finger firmly on the pulse of emerging markets and the latest social media trends, he is able to connect directly with the right media outlets and the right audience in the most engaging and fruitful ways. All of this has made him one of the most respected and influential PR experts in the industry.


WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.

“Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”



Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.
