As live, on-site music came to an abrupt halt in April fans all over the world have been deprived of the Spring/Summer outdoor experience, which often contain special IDs and DJ favorites. But now, thanks to Spotify, listeners can gain some clarity on what cuts the producers of their choice would be packing into their live sets.
A playlist series, titled “track IDs,” has been developed to provide electronic music’s top talent with a platform to push their favorite tracks that they’d otherwise be playing live. The collections are available globally and feature hand-curated groupings from Aluna, Black Coffee, Carl Cox, MK, Pan-Pot, Honey Dijon, Dixon, Green Velvet, Amelie Lens and more. Additional playlists from other artists who’ve yet to join the track IDs roster will be released at a later date.
Dixon, for example, described his collection by saying: “It’s no secret the tracks I play are usually unreleased from whichever sounds I’m into at the time. Right now, with the usual game on hold, this playlist feels quite personal. Of course, there are the floor fillers in there, some from prior lockdown, some that never have been tested on a dance floor. But I’m more curious to gauge the listeners’ response to the underdogs.”
For those interested in checking out these selections, the track IDs playlists can be found within Spotify’s Dance/Electronic hub. Check out one of them here.
