NEXT Music, the mobile music app committed to driving artist discovery, has announced its partnership with the world’s largest publicly-voted music poll the Top 100 DJs. The deal will see NEXT Music, formerly known as Beat Fever, bringing the definitive guide to the world’s most popular DJs to NEXT Music’s millions of subscribed App users.
Featuring thousands of live performances and hundreds of licensed songs, NEXT Music has created a virtual music festival where fans can discover, support and interact with artists. Over 14 million music fans in over 150 countries can catch live performances, tip artists or play a 30-90 second clip of a gamified song and buy the full-length version.
DJ Mag’s Head of Digital & Partnerships Simon Kelly said: “At DJ Mag we are passionate about innovation at the intersection of music and technology. NEXT Music enables electronic music fans to discover and interact with music in a unique and innovative way. By creating a seamless user journey between the NEXT Music app through to the Top 100 DJs voting platform we hope to give more music fans than ever before a chance to participate in the Top 100 DJs poll.”
Promoting Top 100 DJs, in aid of Unicef, NEXTMusic is featuring multiple gamified songs and live shows of nominated DJs. Plus, players in NEXT Music can pull up top100djs.com directly from their mobile device, and vote with the touch of a button.
