Spotify Adds More Artists to the ‘Track IDs’ Playlist Series

Spotify Track IDs Playlist

After launching the Track IDs playlists earlier this summer, Spotify has now added even more artists including Flume, ANNA, and more.


Back in August, Spotify announced their latest project centered around connecting artists with their fans, the Track IDs playlist series. Now, the behemoth streaming platform has continued to grow the co-curated series and announced an impressive second wave of artists that includes some of the top names in electronic music. This round of artists features movers and shakers in the dance music scene like Flume, ANNA, Boris Brejcha, Maceo Plex, Nina Las Vegas, and Jamie XX, among many others.

Each playlist sees artists and Spotify’s editorial team work together to share some of their favorite music and help listeners identify songs they hear during performances. Not only does this assist in building a connection between DJs and their fans during the pandemic when shows have been put on pause, but it also showcases the diverse tastemaking abilities that they bring to the table.

During these strange times where we cannot be together on the dancefloor I’m so happy to be able to share the tracks I would be playing for you so you can enjoy it from wherever you are, and imagine we are all connected and dancing as one. I’ve included some of my own productions, a remix I released during quarantine, new releases and also some of my all-time favourites. I hope you enjoy it!

Whether you’re looking for new sounds in the realm of house and techno or chilled out and bassier beats, there’s plenty of fresh cuts spread throughout each playlist. Other artists who have joined in on the project include Richie Hawtin, Joseph Capriati, Maya Jane Coles, and &ME, who further bolster the debut lineup that saw the likes of Dixon, MK, Aluna, SHERELLE, and more lead the charge during the summer.

I love the concept of ‘track ID’ as I’ve always been a supporter of being fully transparent with the music I play. We have to always remember that DJ culture is based upon many of us playing other people’s music as the base of our creative and professional endeavors and to keep the creative eco-system complete we must help not only spread the music but also the information about who made the tracks we play. This is an important part of how the wonderful electronic music continues to help promote and nurture young talent and keep our scene fresh and vibrant.  At this moment during Covid even though many of us aren’t playing as often as we would normally do, music is still being made and played and that’s why even at this time the track ID playlists play an important role in electronic music culture.
