She launched her college, SUNY Farmingdale's first ever radio station and then landed her first professional radio job working in New York City at CBS' Top 40 station, 92.3 NOW. In 2014, Rida started her ascent up the music programming ladder by interning alongside Radio Hall of Famer, Kid Kelly on SiriusXM Hits1. She then moved over to SiriusXM dance juggernaut, BPM, where she is the Associate Program Director and hosts a daily national dance music show from 10am-2pm Eastern.

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.

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!

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.

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.
