About

Marci Weber

From Brooklyn, NY, Marci grew up in the world of “Show Business.” Her father was a partner of a well known management company where he specialized in Comedy & Music. Marci’s ultimate interest in entertainment and music was not that surprising.

Early in her career, Marci interned and worked at various record labels such as Miami’s TK Records and the much loved Atlantic Records.

After about 2 years at Atlantic, Marci left to join the NY office of the William Morris Agency. She spent her time at WMA perfecting her craft while working with some of the most influential managers, artists, agents and promoters in the world.

Following WMA, Marci made a stop at the internationally known, Festival Productions, a/k/a
the producer of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival under the leadership of it’s legendary founder jazz impressario and promoter, George Wein. During Marci’s time at Festival, she worked on the internationall, the Japanese, the Newport Jazz Festival and the Concord to name a few.

During her time at Festival, Marci realized she wanted to start her own
managment company and it was over the next 15 years, she merged her company to join her
MCT as a partner where she immersed herself into the “rave” and electronic music scene
where she managed the careers of Moby, MK (marc kinchen) Altern 8, Joey Beltram, Kevin Saunderson, Bebel Gilberto, BT, Rufus Wainwright as well as opening a marketing company that handledt he likes of Daft Punk, Moby, Zero7, Tiesto, Howie B., Underworld, The Prodigy, Chemicals, N.E.R.D., Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, Massive Attack, Portishead, Ronnie Size, Krust, Reece Project, Telepopmusik, DJ Dan, Sander Kleinenberg, Armand Van Helden, The Orb, Timo Maas, Hooverphonic, DJ Cam, Mojo, Murk, Lamb and so many more. Marci also made sure that the company was involved in the live world and producing tours such as:

RAVE NEW WORLD (MOBY, THE PRODIGY, CYBERSONIK (ftring Richie Hawtin, John Acquaviva) )
UFO’s Are Real (MOBY, ORIBITAL, APHEX TWIN, VAPOURSPACE)one off in SF
SEE THE LIGHT (ORBITAL, MOBY, APEHX TWIN & MORE)
BIG TOP (MOBY, BT, BANCO DI GAIA, JUNO REACTOR, ED RUSH, OPTICAL, KEVIN SAUNDERSON,
JUAN ATKINS, and more) (PRODUCED BY MCT & WMA)
AREA 1 & 2 featured artists on a mainstage and the DJ’s in a/c tent (produced MCT/Live Nation)
Outkast, Moby, Incubus, Paul Oakenfold, The Roots, Carl Cox,
The Orb, Timo Mass, New Order, David Bowie, Busta Rymes , Dj Dan, Avalanches, Elastica, Tiesto, Sander Kleinenberg, Rinocerose and more.

It would be remiss to leave out the influence that she and her company had in the sync world at that time. Every single song from Moby’s album Play and then also Everything is Wrong was sampled and licensed over and ove again. This moved the Goal Posts as they say.

In 2004, post recharge, Marci formed a new company, MDM Artists with Mark Davenport
where they have successafully managed the careers of Bassnectar, MK (marc Kinchen)
Will Clarke, Kevin Saunderson, Treasure Fingers, KC Lights and continue to do so today.

Marci and Mark are able to to use their very deep and broad expertise to enhance, nuture and realize artist and client’s potential. Marci’s expericence reaches across the board and when or if there is a question that needs answering or a problem needing a solution, Marci either has sound advice or she has the resources to get second and third opinions from which we can all learn and ponder on new points of view and get the best solution from.
Seeing the business go from 8tracks to thin air atreaming, Marci still believes there are only two kinds of music “Good” and “Bad.”

Testimonials

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!


Patrick Moxey

Ultra Music

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.”

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

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

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.
