Jay Moss

Paradigm agent Jay Moss is one of the top influencers and innovators in the business of dance music, guiding the touring careers of artists like ODESZA, Louis The Child, TroyBoi, Jai Wolf, Big Wild and Lane 8.
A catalyst for disruptive ideas, Moss carefully orchestrated the launch of ODESZA’s first-ever destination music festival, SUNDARA, held in 2019 in Riviera Maya, Mexico. A few months later, they sold more than 35,000 tickets across two sold-out shows at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
Louis The Child are still carrying the hype from their Gold-certified single, “Better Not.” After selling more than 70,000 tickets for their Fall 2018 headline tour, their 2019 Red Rocks show sold out in seconds. Their Fall 2019 headline tour featured 2 and 3 night sold out stints at Terminal 5, Aragon Ballroom, HOB Boston and the Fillmore Philly.
Moss was featured on Billboard’s Dance Power Players list the last three years (2017-2019). He also works as an ambassador for MusiCares, the Recording Academy’s charity providing a safety net of critical assistance for music people in a variety of times of need.
Moss got his start in the music industry as an intern Sony Music/Columbia Records in New York while still in high school. He worked for several different management companies before ultimately landing at boutique booking agency Flowerbooking, where he grew from intern to agent in just three years. In 2014, Moss joined The Windish Agency, which was acquired by Paradigm the following year.

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.

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.

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.

Director, North America - YM&U Music

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.

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.
