Get ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve with exclusive DJ mixes. Deezer is bringing innovation to dance music with a new way of streaming DJ sets. Unlike others, they’re making sure each featured artist gets their fair share of revenues when you enjoy their mix. 

Each mix is around an hour long and sits within a playlist. The first track is the DJ set itself. The tracks that follow below are the original songs featured in the mix. This means you can easily favorite individual tunes from the set without getting mixing sounds that don’t belong there. 

The first mixes launch on 30 December 2019 and feature six top DJs. You can take the party anywhere, as all mixes can be downloaded to enjoy offline. 

Here are the DJ’s about to kick off your New Year’s Eve celebrations:

  1. Michael Mayer is the fundamental pillar of renowned techno label Kompakt and one of Germany's core DJs. He brings us an essential mix of his label's classics and hidden gems 

  2. Modeselektor prepared a wildly diverse DJ mix, infused with boundary-breaking music from their SSPB imprint. The kind of crazy you would expect from the Berlin-based duo

  3. Mark Knight, the House heavyweight from London, shares a mix full of Toolroom Records dance-floor ingredients

  4. Will Saul, one of the pillars of UK dance, has prepared a deep exploration into the universe of his Aus Music 

  5. Sultan + Shepard are a Canadian-based duo signed to Armada, one of the biggest dance labels out there. They have selected some of their favorite deep to progressive house cuts

  6. Makoto, the iconic drum 'n' bass DJ from Japan represents the excellent Hospital Records. He takes you on a journey to his favorite places in the genre 

More DJ sets will be adding in February 2020, including a mix from the groundbreaking imprint WARP Records, in addition to more sets from the labels involved in our pilot launch.

Robin Wilms, the Global Dance & Electronic Editor and one of the masterminds behind the DJ Mixes, said: Taking official mixes to streaming is kicking off a new era in dance music. We’re doing this both for the artists and fans. After years of unfairness for creators and artists featured in mixes, you can now listen to exclusive, quality sets. All while knowing that every producer is finally getting the royalties they deserve.

You’ll find the DJ Mixes exclusively in Deezer’s Electronic and Dance & EDM Channels from 30 December.
