Jimmy Yoshitake

In just over 4 years as a valued member of the Dim Mak crew, Jimmy Yoshitake has grown into the voice for bass music within Steve Aoki’s storied imprint. Born and raised in Southern California, Jimmy initially parlayed his passion for electronic music into a Music Business & Production degree from Los Angeles’ Icon Collective. After landing his first ever internship at Dim Mak, Jimmy’s keen understanding of dance music culture and streaming analytics has led him into his current position of Manager: A&R, Streaming Services for the record label / music publisher.

While Dim Mak is famed for its roster of eclectic sounds, Jimmy’s deep knowledge of the bass music scene has been instrumental in both the scouting and signing of Dim Mak releases by artists such as Riot Ten, ARMNHMR, Tisoki, Bear Grillz, Blanke, WHIPPED CREAM, Leotrix, NXSTY, Badrapper, ATRIP and BIJOU. Additionally, Jimmy has been a key player in the development of Dim Mak’s bass acts, spearheading remix packages for the likes of Matroda and helping shape new records for buzzing acts such as Godlands and Bok Nero. In his off time, this day one dubstep fanatic can be found rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers and taking hikes with his pitbull / boxer pup named Caspa.

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

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.

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.


Tommie Sunshine

Producer/DJ/Activist/Netflix Host

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.


Matt Colon

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.
