Andrew Neill; GM - Circus Records


Access 2019, Industry 2019


Andrew Neill

After helping launch Circus Records while working for their first distributor, Andrew moved to manage the label in 2012. Leading the transition from underground success to independent powerhouse, he has been fundamental in developing the label into what it is today. Celebrating its 10th year and recently receiving their first Grammy nomination, Circus operates at the forefront of modern music marketing.

Starting out industry life as a DJ, Andrew quickly graduated to organising and promoting events while surveying the scene from behind a record store counter. Moving next into distribution, Andrew amassed a wealth of experience operating within the volatile music market between 2003 and 2011. His ability to adapt and embrace future media played a key part in this period and continues to, throughout an evolving career.

Andrew was recently promoted to General Manager, adding sister enterprise Maximum Boost Management to his brief. The boutique management company is based out of the UK and US, representing Flux Pavilion, Low Steppa, DJ Zinc, Doctor P and many more.


The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.

Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.
