Deadmau 5’s electric music hits new heights on Spotify – Reuters

DEADMAU5 have become the latest music streaming company to embrace digital music streaming, with its “Electronic Music of the Year” Spotify playlist topping more than 500 million Spotify users.

The US electronic music group’s electronic music has become one of the fastest-growing genres on the platform, with downloads rising to more than 20 million a month, according to data from the online music service.

DeadmauFive’s “Electronics of the Week” playlist, released on the US music streaming service in April, has also grown to nearly 1.3 million weekly streams.

Spotify said its new playlist had more than double the volume of the top-selling playlist in 2017, with “Electronica” and “Electro-pop” topping the charts.

It is the latest addition to Spotify’s growing digital music library, which also includes electronic music by artists such as The Strokes, The Killers, Disclosure and Zedd.
