"Alexa, play the ultimate New Year's Eve playlist." Well, Alexa heard your call - and Amazon has enlisted the help of the world's top DJs to come together to provide the perfect soundtrack to NYE parties around the globe for all Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers. The official playlists were hand curated by some of Amazon customers’ favorite DJs, including DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, Jonas Blue, Felix Jaehn, NERVO, Sigma, Kaskade, and Robin Schulz.
Patrons of the streaming service in more than 40 countries can listen to the DJ-curated NYE playlists here, or simply ask to hear a specific playlist by name. For example, you can say to your device: “Alexa, play [insert above artist name] New Year’s Eve playlist.”
Speaking on the curation, Steve Aoki says:
"Very excited to share my New Year’s Eve party picks with Amazon Music listeners! I played 200 shows in 2018 and these are some of the tracks that always go off. Plus, I’ve included some favorites from my label, Dim Mak. Be careful though, if you click this playlist you may get complaints from the neighbors.”
The DJ-selected tracks include classics like Steve Angello & Laidback Luke’s “Show Me Love” and Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You” (included by Jonas Blue); and recent hits including Loud Luxury’s breakout hit “Body” (chosen by NERVO) and Calvin Harris & Sam Smith’s “Promises” (picked by Felix Jaehn).
