Zach Jaffe; Product & Marketing Manager - Beatport

Zach Jaffe

Although Zach began his professional career in entertainment law writing contracts for major motion pictures, his deep passion for live music lead him to the cutting edge of electronic music and technology. After spending the early 2010's as a key leader in the growing the underground Los Angeles bass music scene, promoting and curating events across Southern California, Zach fully made the jump into music tech.

While continuing to produce the sold-out tri-annual Ego Trip events with some of the biggest names in underground dance music, he spent 5 years as the chief evangelist and Head of Business Development of physical bass technology start-up SUBPAC working with artists across the spectrum from Richie Hawtin to Timbaland. While at SUBPAC, Zach produced experiential marketing campaigns and events for major labels, artists, brands, and technology companies such as Universal, Reddit, IMAX, Square Enix, Red Bull, Mass Appeal, Hyperdub, and many more.

Since joining Beatport, the world's largest digital music store for producers and DJs, as the Marketing and Partnerships Manager, Zach has transitioned into product management and marketing for the company, shepherding the next generation of tools for global DJ culture.


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.

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.

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.

“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.”
