Known to DJs all over as one of the top names in dance music online, we’re very pleased to announce that EMI Music and the award-winning Beatport have signed a new international licensing deal.
This new deal means that Beatport can now sell music from EMI’s catalogue of dance and electronic music and mixies such as releases from EMI’s Positiva, one of the longest running and most successful imprints in dance music, now in its 18th year, labels such as DFA and a whole host of artists such as The Chemical Brothers, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Kraftwerk and many more. Read the announcement in full here.
The first release through the new partnership is the new Positiva-released single ‘Open Your Eyes’ from Alex Metric with Steve Angello (of Swedish House Mafia). The instrumental mix of the track is available now exclusively on Beatport ahead of the single’s full release in March. You can get it on Beatport here.
The song was recently Pete Tong’s Essential New Tunes on BBC Radio 1 in the UK. As the man himself says, the tune is so large it needs a festival named after it.
