Beatport and SiriusXM have partnered on “Pitch Control: Powered by Beatport,” a new weekly radio show airing on Sundays at 11 PM EST on their electronic music channel, BPM. The show debuted this Sunday, April 5, hosted by Beatsource Dance Curator Andrew “DJ Drew” Ortiz. DJ Drew has 20 years of experience programming dance radio at KIIS FM in Los Angeles, making him an ideal host.
DJ Drew’s collaborators for this program include Beatport’s Berlin-based curation team, led by Raphael Pujol, Edwin “DJ Phenom” Paredes, who serves as a Program Director at SiriusXM for Pitbull’s Globalization and BPM channels, SiriusXM’s Vice President of EDM programming, Geronimo, and Program Director, Rida Naser. Tracks will also be selected by taking into account real-time activity on Beatport LINK, the streaming service that’s fully integrated with DJ software and hardware. It allows for songs being played by DJs around the world to be immediately known to the Beatport curation team.
“We are thrilled to enter into this music and broadcasting partnership with SiriusXM, one of the leading music destinations here in the US,” Beatport CEO Robb McDaniels said. “So many U.S.-based electronic music fans are thirsty for the best underground electronic music tracks that will likely be the next big dance floor hits. Our world-class curation team and Beatsource’s expert staff are the perfect combination to deliver the goods on a weekly basis.”
Tune into the show Sundays at 11 PM EST on SiriusXM’s BPM channel.
On Friday, March 27, Beatport will present ReConnect, a live 24-hour global DJ marathon in partnership with Twitch. The goal of this streaming event is to provide a platform to unite our global community during these unprecedented times, while also supporting charities to help those most in need.
From Friday, March 27th at 8 pm GMT to Saturday, March 28 at 6 am GMT via live Twitch stream, Beatport will broadcast 24 artists including Carl Cox, Bonobo, Nina Kraviz, GRiZ, RÜFÜS DU SOL, A-Trak, Nicole Moudaber, Chris Liebing and Nora En Pure. They will be performing from their homes or studios around the globe. Beatport will be providing track IDs as songs are played on Twitch so fans can purchase any of the music they hear and support the independent artist and label community directly. Beatport will also be working with key industry partners to give away gear and merchandise to randomly selected donors during the live event.
During the live stream on Twitch, viewers can make donations, with the money going directly to benefit those most impacted by the crisis. The funds will be administered by the AFEM (Association For Electronic Music), the global non-profit trade association for the electronic music industry, and will be distributed to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization looking after the frontline health concerns, and the AFEM Members COVID-19 Hardship Fund.
Are you a DJ or music fan looking for a unique way to assist others during this global pandemic? Tune in here on Friday to watch the all-star lineup of selectors. Thanks in advance to the DJcity community of readers for your support.
