Boris Deckers

Boris started out in the industry as co-manager for Costa Rican DJ Ale Mora (signed to Ultra Korea) guiding him on both strategy and music production. After sourcing a placement with K-pop artist Jay Park (Rocnation), the track matched so well it soon became the soundtrack to Jay’s documentary. Shortly after, Boris began to focus on his solo projects, charting for 16 straight weeks on the Billboard Dance Charts – a track that he put together with The Voice UK finalist Tanya Lacey. Maintaining close relationships with various industry people, being able to predict new trends and sounds without affecting an artists’ authenticity are all key aspects of Boris’ continued ascend in the industry. As Head of A&R at Mixmash Records this now all comes together perfectly in overseeing the creative output of Mixmash exclusive roster of artists such as Laidback Luke, Keanu Silva, Lady Bee and Unity.

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.


Jonas Tempel

Beatport, Co-Founder

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.


Louie Vega

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.

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC
