Apple Music releases 24 new DJ mixes for New Year's Eve

Apple Music has revealed that it will return in 2021 with a final wrap-up of 24 handpicked DJ mixes expertly tailored for the New Year's Eve celebration.

The mixes are only available on Apple Music and are custom-curated by each DJ in lossless quality.

Every playlist appears to appeal to every mood and sort of gathering. The mixes include a wide range of genres, including EDM, pop, hip-hop, and Latin, and can be used whether you're keeping it quiet for New Year's Eve or having a party.

The 24 musicians who submitted choices include Anz (pictured), DJ Nobu, Patrick Topping, Jasmine Infiniti, Sama' ,Omar-S, Charli XCX, PinkPantheress, and Arjun Vagale.

Speaking on her mix, Anz says: “This mix is a really small selection of some of my favourite tracks from this year. Lots of UK garage, lots of electro, breakbeat, hardcore- just various bits and bobs to get you in the mood for a big one.

"We have music from the likes of UNIIQU3, Jubilee, and a few of the tracks I’ve released this year too”.

Charli XCX states regarding her mix: “In this set, I mix up a lot of amazing songs that really heavily influenced my upcoming album ‘Crash’.

"Songs from Janet, Prince, Cameo, Mariah Carey – just songs that have a retro sort of rhythmic feel to them. Songs with incredible snare drums often and songs that make you want to dance”.

Over the last year, the tech giant has deepened its entry into the nightlife scene.

Earlier this year Apple Music partnered with Mixmag, DJ-Kicks, Boiler Room and other dance music companies to monetize DJ mixes.
