DJ Mix is a brand-new feature on Apple Music, and the acts and artists behind the music will now be able to receive direct compensation for the use of their songs in the mix. Built on Shazam technology, it makes it easier to properly identify and credit the individual creators who contributed to a particular mixtape or album.
In addition to this new feature, Apple Music is collaborating with DJs and suppliers of DJ Mixes to ensure that everyone is compensated fairly for their work. Apple Music has recruited various DJs including DJ Kicks, Honey Dijon, Amorphous, DBN, DJ Clue, Dām Funk, Funk Flex, and more to participate in the new venture.
On Apple Music’s DJ Mixes, you’ll find everything from the tracks played at Tomorrowland’s digital festivals in 2020 and 2021 (featuring Alesso, David Guetta, Diplo, Major Lazer, Martin Garrix, Tisto, and many more).
“Apple Music is the first platform to offer continuous mixes, with a fair fee for both the artists whose tracks are included in the mixes and the artists who create the mixes,” says Belgian techo artist and KNTXT head Charlotte De Witte in a statement. “Apple Music is the first platform to offer continuous mixes, with a fair fee for both the artists whose tracks are included in the mixes and the artists who create the mixes. It’s a positive step in the right direction, as long as everyone is treated equally. My excitement at the prospect of providing online mixes once more is unmatched. When compared to playing a peak-time set in a club or at a festival, there is a distinct difference in approach.. It enables me to provide a comprehensive overview of my music collection without any restrictions.”
