The playlists, co-curated by the Spotify team and top electronic DJs including Carl Cox, Amelie Lens, Black Coffee, Dixon, Nina Kraviz, Honey Dijon, MK, Pan-Pot, among others, aim to help electronic music fans find the tracks played during the respective DJs’ sets.

More often than not, when watching a DJ set on any audio/video platform or through any social media channels, you’ll likely see the comment “Track ID?” from someone (or maybe yourself). It’s the question running through most people’s minds when their favorite DJ drops a track that hits all the right notes in their ears but the name eludes them. Shazam is also out of the question, and before the app can catch the song, the DJ will have moved on to the next track.

Therefore, in order to help remedy the situation, Spotify have created a series of playlists titled “Track IDs”, curated by some of the biggest house and techno DJs including Carl Cox, Amelie Lens, Black Coffee, Dixon, Nina Kraviz, Honey Dijon, MK, Pan-Pot. The playlists are meant to help music fans find the tracks played during their favorite DJ sets which can range from original compositions to unreleased material.

Each playlist will include the DJ’s original tracks as well as their selections heard through their live sets. Track selections range from a wide variety of electronic music genres such as house, techno, electronica, chill, and more. The playlists will also give a much needed spotlight to lesser known artists and their music.

The playlists will be refreshed with new music on a weekly basis.

Berlin-based DJ Dixon says:

“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 to lockdown, some that never have been tested on a dance floor. But I’m more curious to gauge the listeners’ response to the underdogs.”
