The world-renowned livestream DJ platform, Cercle, has announced its first official Apple Music room. For some time, the French platform was assessing ways to dilate its purview while maintaining a fair distribution of royalties.
So far, Apple Music subscribers can stream some of Cercle’s highest praised livestreams, including Fatboy Slim at Brighton i360 or ZHU at Hakuba Iwatake in Japan. True, the visual appeal of a Cercle set is a monumental component, but access to it is only a YouTube click away. Now, with their iPhones locked, fans can support Cercle and their favorite electronic artists on an alternative leading DSP. Through the new medium, Cercle will roll out more iconic mixes from their YouTube channel in addition to premiering exclusive sessions on Apple Music.
Paul Souchier, the head of communication at Cercle, said in a statement,
“We’ve been waiting several years for a streaming service to be able to legally and fairly feature our sets, as this has been a major issue in the electronic music world. We are delighted to finally deliver them on Apple Music on the dedicated Cercle page, and to be able to compensate all the rights-holders – the labels, the artists but also the DJs creating these sometimes anthological and timeless sets.”
