Luke LiManni; Executive Producer, DDB (Jeep)


Industry 2019


Luke LiManni

Luke started his career in 2006 at DDB Chicago on the account side of the business but quickly realized production was the best part of the job – making the switch official in 2011. He’s worked on major brands such as State Farm, Capital One, McDonalds, and Mars Wrigley, and for the past 3 years, he’s been an Executive Producer on FCA brands, producing work for Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, and Fiat. Luke’s had a number of exciting experiences connecting music with the major brands to propel work forward; from having Giorgio Moroder remix a track for the relaunch of the Alfa Romeo Brand in the US, to rerecording “Country Boy” for RAM with Justin Timberlake’s band The Tennessee Kids, to using an unreleased track from Dej Loaf (featuring Leon Bridges) for a Fiat spot. Luke believes music is the best way for a brand to connect emotionally with the consumer. He feels music in advertising can spark an idea, be the lead character, create brand affinity and affect culture along the way if done right.


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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
