Tommie Sunshine

Tastemaker to tastemakers, curator and shapeshifterTommie Sunshine is renowned for his reputation of being consistently ahead of the curve bridging the worlds of RaveDiscoHouse, and EDM while still standing firmly in the zeitgeist. Establishing his name throughout the American Rave scene during the ’90s, he became one of the most recognizable figures of the Electroclash movement during the early 2000s, and helped set the stage for the EDM boom of the 2010s. 27 years as a DJ and 33 years as a clubber gives Sunshine his unique perspective on the business & informs his present Rave Revival sound.  

 

Set apart by his iconoclastic productions, he is regarded as one of today’s most prolific remixers providing club-ready makeovers for countless household names, including Billie Eilish, Katy Perry, Lizzo, Sofi Tukker, Lenny Kravitz, Dua Lipa, Elvis Presley, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Major LazerSantana, and Fall Out BoyTommie’s original production career spans collaborations with such artists as Oscar Grammy nominated Junkie XLChocolate PumaJames Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, legend Arthur BakerFelix da HousecatPeachesThe Disco Fries, and many more. His music has been released on all of the biggest Dance labels in the world including Spinnin’UltraArmadaMusical FreedomHeldeepSizeMixmashDim Mak, and Mad Decent amongst others. His label Brooklyn Fire is beyond their 400th release giving a platform to young producers just getting started in the business giving their music mass exposure, DJ support from the biggest in the game & streams into the millions.

 

Whether as a Producer, DJ or Artist, Tommie brings a unique enthusiasm to his craft; one that is fueled by his encyclopedic (if not obsessive) knowledge of Underground and Pop music spanning the last half-century. His TV show After The Raves on Netflix took him around the world speaking intimately with Fatboy SlimHardwell and Paul Oakenfold, and his encyclopedic musical knowledge and outspoken views have landed him airtime on numerous talk shows and radio programs. Sunshine, also known as a social media provocateur, has been known to cause an uproar in his firm stance on many issues most won’t dare talk about & his activism has landed him on TMZ for gun control. Tommie served as a surrogate for the 2016 & once again presently for the 2020 Presidential campaigns of Bernie Sanders.

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.


Matt Colon

Director, North America - YM&U Music

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.


Jonas Tempel

Beatport, Co-Founder

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.


Erick Morillo

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

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.
