Buck Rodgers


Access 2019, Industry 2019


Buck Rodgers

Midwestern, now resident Texan, Jordan “Buck” Rodgers has been making his mark with innovative and atmospheric live sets. He dismantles and then infuses together music making you forget genre, tempo, or release date. You’re left with a body moving beat no one can resist.
Buck started like many others at a young age but quickly separated himself with his innate ability to capture an audience. He fluidly switches between being one the premiere MPC finger drummers in the world to a master turntablist with a flick of the wrist.
Among his numerous competition wins his most notable have been the 2018 Goldie Awards Beat Battle World Champion, and the 2015 Redbull 3style South Region Champ / US Finalist. Buck’s talent transcends competition beats into the deep, rhythmic night life. His residencies include W Hotel Austin, Bungalow, and Green Light Social.


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.

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.

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!
