Amazon Music ropes in some of the biggest names in dance music for ‘The Summer Sessions’


Amazon Music has seen a big rise in popularity lately. Launched in 2007, it became the first music store to sell music without digital rights management from the four major music labels(and more) in 2008 and it’s only been rising ever since. With 60 million tracks in their database (and counting), Amazon Music has proven to be within the big leagues and now they’ve stepped their game up for dance music lovers with “The Summer Sessions”.

Starting July 17, they’ve roped in some of the biggest and hottest names in the electronic scene to curate some playlists of their favourite tracks exclusively to Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Music HD customers globally. Joining the bill are the likes of Martin GarrixLove Regenerator (Calvin Harris), Disclosure and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the lineup. Each playlist promises to be filled with each artist’s favourite summer anthems – with new tracks as well as older dance classic favourites worthy of partying to. With the playlists, we’ll be able to get an insight as to what songs each artist is loving right now, and we can’t wait to see what they pick!

“I’m super happy to be sharing my summer playlist for everyone to be able to enjoy from the comfort of their own home or wherever summer will take them. I hope it will bring some good vibes!”- Martin Garrix
