Access 2019, Industry 2019


Anthony Mattana

Anthony Mattana (Hooke Audio Founder, CEO) Anthony got his start in audio as a theatrical sound designer on Broadway. Cited by Live Design Magazine as a “Young Designer to Watch,” Mattana is a professional at telling stories through audio in both large and small-scale productions. At the tender age of 25, determined to bring the professional audio tools he had access to in the theatre to smartphones, he invented Hooke Audio, a recording platform designed to change the way we record the world. He invented “Hooke Verse" the World’s first binaural 3D audio recording wireless headphones for Android, iOS, DSLRs and more. Anthony has served as a thought leader in the blossoming 3D market having spoken at Midem, SXSW, NAMM, CES, Northside Festival, NYVR Expo, Taiwan Beats, and various other VR meet-ups around the World.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
