About

Jorge Brea

Jorge is the CEO of Symphonic Distribution, one of the leading independent partners for digital music distribution services to stores such as iTunes, Beatport, Amazon, Spotify and more.

Because Jorge Brea wasn't backed by a big record label a decade ago when he was a DJ and producer, he was having trouble getting his music out.

So in 2006, with no venture capital or outside funding, he started a company at his parents' house in Tampa, FL that would make it easier for him and his peers to get heard.

The days of this small startup are long gone, however. Today the company has distributed over 850,000 releases of over 15,000 record labels and 250,000 artists around the globe and paid out millions in royalties.

Symphonic continues to develop new technologies in the form of in-house systems and have expanded offerings to include marketing, sync licensing, publishing administration, graphic design services, and more.

Their team of 12 passionate individuals pride themselves on quick responses and direct one-on-one conversations and advising with clients, from the basics of managing a social network to mastering and brand development to fine-tuning a marketing plan. Their goal is to become the one-stop shop for the music industry while maintaining a personalized approach with our clients.

In Jorge’s spare time he loves to attend concerts, play racket ball, travel and enjoy a nice mojito in the sunny beaches of Florida with his wife.

Testimonials

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.

“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.”

DJ/Producer

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.

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

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.
