Patrick Moxey

President,
Ultra Records
New York, NY, USA
Patrick Moxey is not just a music executive; he’s a man behind a movement.

The President and founder of Ultra Records, Ultra Music, and Ultra International Music Publishing is by all accounts a visionary pioneer who has pushed past barriers to bring hip hop and electronic dance music into the mainstream heart of America, where it squarely sits in 2012. Executive Producer of 3 GRAMMY Award winning records, Moxey is now focused primarily on the electronic dance music scene, which is topping the pop charts via tracks such as Calvin Harris’ collaboration with Rihanna “We Found Love.” But without Moxey and Ultra Music, the sound that has captured young U.S. music fans’ hearts, minds and wallets might never have happened.

Today, Ultra Music, based in Manhattan, boasts 33 full time employees and offices in Europe, Canada as well as a new Los Angeles outpost. However, the label started out small and was always (and remains) a personal obsession of one man who loved dance music before it was considered “cool” in cities and the suburbs alike.
