Spotify Launches “Track IDs” Playlist Curated by DJs
Aug 11, 2020 | by Will Mitchell
Last week, music streaming giant Spotify rolled out a new series of playlists, featuring tracks hand-picked by the best of the best. With 23 artists on board— and more expected to follow— track IDs relieves users from the stress of curating their own party soundtrack, instead giving the job to professionals like Carl Cox, Honey Dijon, Black Coffee and Amelie Lens.
Each DJ has compiled a separate playlist highlighting a handful of their favourite songs, including lesser-known gems as well as fan favourites. In response to the launch, Spotify released the following statement:
“Available globally, these playlists were created in response to one of the most frequent questions DJs get asked during their sets, ‘track ID, anyone?’ The “track IDs” will provide DJs with a platform to easily share the tracks they would play in their sets, while allowing them to connect with their fans in a way they haven’t been able to do so before.”
Maik Pallasch, Spotify Germany’s Head of Music also commented,
“We’re thrilled to collaborate and curate with DJs as we continue to expand Spotify’s support for Dance/Electronic music. With our expansive offering of Dance/Electronic music content, we are excited to offer fans the chance to further explore this diverse and culturally influential genre and dive deeper into the space to uncover their new favorites.
