About

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.

Testimonials

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.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec 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.


Louie Vega

DJ/Vega Records

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

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!
