Demuir

Demuir’s eclectic house sound exudes funky, sexy and soulful beats that are consistently recognized and sought by fellow artists and dance music fans around the world.
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Demuir started off as a child playing around on his Dad’s Hammond B3 organ, before beginning to play music seriously at the age of 16, with skills covering the keys, bass guitar, drums and percussion instruments. He first fell in love with house music after hearing Derrick May’s “Strings of Life”, and by seeing May, DJ Sneak, and Mark Farina at Industry, the legendary Toronto nightclub.
With remixes for Elrow and A-Trak’s label Fools Gold, a highly successful EP on Hot Creations and additional EP’s on Desolat, Origins and Heist, Demuir made sure to spread his music globally. These releases are another addition to his growing catalogue, incl. EP’s on the legendary label Classic Music Company as well as Jesse Rose’s imprint Play It Down, and multiple releases on I’m A House Gangster, and his most recent full-length album TruSkool on Sneak’s Magnetic Recordings. His musical output has truly led him to stand out amongst his peers and be championed by dance music’s elite artists.
Not to be outdone by his skills in the studio, Demuir is equally impressive as a live performer with a track record of prolific DJ sets. He first perfected his craft in his native Canada at venues like Coda in Toronto, Salon Daomé & Circus in Montreal, Club Called Rhonda in LA, and Electric Island.
In 2019 his booking schedule took him to play shows for Elrow in Barcelona & Miami, Paradise @ Art Basel/Miami, Coda/Toronto, Halcyon/SF and House of Yes/NYC + tours in Australia, Europe, Asia and South America. In addition to his extensive touring Demuir also champions the Underground on his own label Purveyor Underground with upcoming releases by Sidney Charles and Mason Maynard.
And if this isn’t enough Demuir just started KULTUR together with Junior Sanchez. Within the pairs new project and future brand; KULTUR seeks to unify and educate the scene, creating their own movement for today. With their own music, parties, fashion and movement, KULTUR brings together the young and the old – people from all walks of life – under the feelings ultimately born in the underground dance music culture. KULTUR’s release schedule is set with an EP by Kerri Chandler with remixes by Josh Butler and more in addition to upcoming EP’s by DJ Sneak, Kristy Harper, Carlo Lio and of course Demuir & Junior Sanchez.
Demuir’s incredible career ascent shows no signs of slowing down for 2020 and beyond. A new EP on Pets, and multiple EP’s on a slew of labels like Sola, Circus, Do Not Sleep, and Kaoz Theory and a global tour are just a few of the things to look for from this purveyor of all sounds underground.

Testimonials

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!


Patrick Moxey

Ultra 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.


Daniel Glass

Glassnote Records

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

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

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
