What does Micheal Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, Crystal Waters, Erykah Badu, Martha Wash and Ultra Nate’ all have in common? All of them have been produced by Teddy Douglas .The Baltimore native DJ/producer began his DJ career professionally in 1983 at the hottest clubs in Baltimore D.C. area till present.

While still traveling around the globe in DJ booths from famed Yellow in Japan to Ministry of Sound Teddy Douglas continue to wow his audiences at the legendary club Paradox in Baltimore.

The long running Salvation party is 14 years strong. Recently he teamed up with long time collaborators DJ Spen and Karizma for the bi-annual party called Respekt at the Paradox.

Teddy Douglas is a key figure in the development of the Baltimore “House” Sound .In 1985 he met Jay Steinhour and Thommy Davis who later went on to form The Basement Boys production company.

The Basement Boys have produced countless dance classics like the 1991 Gold single “Gypsy Woman” (la da dee, la da da) which has been sampled to this day by everyone from R&B Gospel duo Mary Mary, Pitbull to T.I. in 2006.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

“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.”



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.

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.
