About

MK

MK (Marc Kinchen) who has performed various dates in the States including EDC in Vegas, the main stage at HARD Summer earlier this year and will be featured at the Imagine Festival in Atlanta as well. Add all this to his in-demand remixes for the artists such as Rihanna, London Grammar, Solardo and Clean Bandit, alongside his original productions, MK has swiftly become one of the world’s most in-demand producers in dance music. Several of his earlier releases including “Always” “Burning” and “Push The Feeling On” were instrumental in first helping dance music cross over into the mainstream, while his 2014 remix of Wankelmut & Emma Louise’s “My Head Is A Jungle” has amassed over 45 million Spotify streams. His latest single “17” has served as a highlight to a great year for MK, where he continues to flourish overseas and break new boundaries in North America. The track has been streamed on Spotify over 31 million times. The British have always had an affinity for quality house music, and they have embraced this MK song as well. The U.K. audience has catapulted “17” into Top 10 slots across many prominent charts including BBC Radio, Shazam and iTunes. All over Europe, “17” has received steady radio play from Denmark‘s The Voice to Belgium‘s Top Radio, plus breaking into Ireland‘s Top 10.

Testimonials

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.

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!

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

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.

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.”
