Humans are being forced indoors more and more to decrease the rapid coronavirus spread. According to epidemiologists, COVID-19 is on pace to peak at the end of April in the US. At the time of writing, the country is already seeing record numbers with over 100K+ cases (the most in the world) and over 2,000 deaths and climbing by the hour. To alleviate some of that burden on local hospitals, dance music artists are bringing the party to the living room to encourage fans to stay home and practice social distancing.
Whether it’s on the Beatport Re:Connect live stream, Insomniac‘s Countdown Virtual Rave-A-Thon, or artists DJing in their home living rooms as they self-quarantine, fans are taking part in new ways to enjoy their favorite artists. Throughout this past week, a flood of heavy-hitters came out of the woodwork to entertain fans at home, including Calvin Harris‘ Love Regenerator project, Disclosure‘s Kitchen Mix, Madeon‘s Ironing Board Session, Diplo and Dillon Francis‘ Coronight Fever, The Black Madonna, GRiZ‘s house set on Beatport Re:Connect, and many more.
