Robby Engle, Dance Editor for Apple Music, said:

"We’re very excited about the launch of danceXL as the premiere brand and playlist for dance music on Apple Music. danceXL reflects what is happening in dance music culture with the biggest and best songs of the genre. The refresh creates a brand that aims to resonate with the devoted community of dance music fans and artists. Apple Music saw the dance genre grow 40% on Apple Music from 2017 to 2018, and danceXL is going to help us to continue that amazing growth,”
