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.


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.

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.

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

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.
