defected apple music

The latest external playlist curator getting some love from Apple Music is independent dance label Defected Records, including its Glitterbox brand.

It’s providing Apple Music with some exclusive DJ mixes and live sets, kicking off with a selection including sets from Ibiza in 2019 (Roger Sanchez, Gorgon City, Sam Divine) and from the recent Glitterbox Virtual Festival (Idris Elba, Jellybean Benitez, Boys Noize etc).

Apple Music said this would be “the start of a regular schedule of new mixes & sets from the label” on its service.

The DJ sets may be exclusive to Apple, but Defected isn’t ignoring other platforms with its playlists: Fresh House Friday, Defected Selectors, Defected Classics and others are still on Spotify for example.
