As the coronavirus pandemic worsens across the globe, and governments are issuing stay at home orders, dance music fans are looking for ways to catch live performances from top musicians worldwide while remaining in social isolation. Thankfully, Digital music retail giant Beatport has teamed up with the world’s foremost live streaming platform, Twitch, to bring EDM fans live-streamed DJ sets for 24-hours straight.
The newly launched live stream event, Beatport Presents: ReConnect, comes at just the right time to give people the music they’re craving. Expect sets from artists like Carl Cox, Nina Kraviz, GRiZ, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Nicole Moudaber, Bonobo, and more – all streamed from the artists’ homes or private recording studios.
“Over the past few weeks, we have seen so much of humanity come together as one to battle the escalation of the Covid-19 virus in an effort to protect the most vulnerable. With so many of us sheltered in our homes, wanting to stay connected to the people and music that plays such a positive role in our lives, Beatport and the passionate DJ community we work with on a daily basis feel compelled to deliver a unique music experience directly into homes across the world,” commented Beatport’s CEO, Robb McDaniels.
Beatport will also be working with key industry partners to give away gear and merchandise to randomly selected donors during the live event. Plus, Beatport will be providing track IDs as songs are played on Twitch so fans can purchase any of the music they hear and support the independent artist and label community directly.
Tune in right now, here.
