Junior Sanchez

Continually making waves and shaking up the world of house music with his eclectic and unpredictable palette of sounds and styles since 1994, Junior Sanchez is one of dance music’s most prolific artists.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Junior first cut his teeth at some of the hottest clubs in NYC and it was here that he meticulously perfected his craft to become one of the most in-demand DJs in the music industry. His relentless work ethic and innovative, forward-thinking style has attracted attention & respect from his peers and major artist’s alike

Junior’s catalogue is almost overwhelmingly impressive, with releases on some of dance music’s most established labels including Strictly Rhythm, Nervous, Snatch, Relief, Defected, Mad Tech Records, Circus recordings to name a few. Add to that an impressive list of production remix credits for artists including Madonna, Gorillaz, Jamiroquai, Chrvches, Azealia Banks, Cassius, Ariana Grande and Teyana Taylor, and you have an artist that never fails to deliver the goods.

2018 was a prolific and productive year for Jr and 2019 has already starting off in similarly impressive fashion. His collaboration with Roger Sanchez & DJ Sneak as the S-Men has already created a buzz in the industry, and their debut album is in the works with Junior ‘s highly-anticipated sophomore album slated for release later this year. Add to this the release of Strong Enough on Circus, releases on Freeze and Fundamentals that have clocked up a million stream apiece on Spotify, and his label Brobot Records continuously releasing top-level tracks, and it’s clear that Junior is in the form of his life.

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

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.


Craig Kallman

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

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.


Erick Morillo

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal 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.
