Access 2019 Industry 2019



For more than a decade, legendary Mexican-American producer Deorro has worked to build a music empire while carving a unique sonic space for himself -- somewhere in between bouncy electro beats, and his heritage-inspired Latin melodies. Deorro’s undeniable ear for electronic hits and his loyal fan base also known as “Panda Fam” have been the catalyst to the producer’s domination, landing him leading performances at major festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Beyond Wonderland, Electric Daisy Carnival ​Lollapalooza Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and many more​. Deorro also holds a highly regarded Las Vegas residency at Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan.
Deorro continues to flourish and evolve within the electronic music scene with his newest release “Wild Like The Wild” (out now on Ultra Music). “Wild Like The Wind” signifies a shift in the producer’s style and aesthetic, more of which will be revealed as we move further into 2019. The year will be home to new sound and style endeavours for the producer and fans are really in for a treat.
Always putting his production skills to the test, Deorro has become one of the most prolific artists in dance music by constantly exploring multiple genres to incorporate into electronic music. His perfect blend between latin, pop, and electronic have benefitted Deorro’s ability to own his unique style in dance music like no other artist.
In addition to ‘Wild Like The Wind,” Deorro’s other recent works include the latin infused smash “Munequita Linda” and the high energy progressive track “Bring It Back”. Earlier in his career, Deorro teamed up with Chris Brown their energetic pop-crossover banger “Five More Hours”. Later that year, Deorro treated fans to his debut full length album, a 26 track masterpiece titled “Good Evening.” From start to finish, the album is culmination of uncountable genres and influences ranging from progressive house, to funky bass, to future and even harder dubstep.
On the international level, Deorro has previously collaborated with Grammy Award-winning/ Latin Grammy Award-winning merengue star Elvis Crespo and latin legend Pitbull. Released in April 2016, their collaborative track “Bailar” reached over 128 million Spotify streams; more than 51 million YouTube views of the official music video; over 13 global certifications, including platinum statues in multiple european parts of the world. Deorro’s other notable releases were on esteemed labels including Ultra Music, Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Monstercat, and Steve Aoki’s imprint Dim Mak.
Deorro is constantly keeping his eyes and ears to the ground for ways to innovate within the dance music space. Stay tuned for what surprises come next from Deorro this upcoming year.


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.

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.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

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.”
