The package will include podcasts, live streams and more
Renaissance have signed up to Mixcloud Select, the fan-oriented subscription service that launched at the end of 2018.
Mixcloud Select lets fans support the artists and labels they love by paying a small monthly subscription in exchange for access to exclusive tracks, live streams and DJ mixes. Other high-profile artists, labels and brands that already have a Mixcloud Select channel include the likes of Defected, Nicole Moudaber, DJ Vadim, John Digweed, Adam Beyer, Armin Van Buuren, Cafe Del Mar and Tru Thoughts.
In Renaissance's case, subscription costs £3.99/month, which gets you access to:
- a one-hour podcast called The Sound Of Renaissance
- a two-hour DJ mix under the Renaissance Radio banner
- a one-hour video livestream called Renaissance Live
- a two-hour video stream called Engage, which sees big-name DJs given two hours to play "something slightly different from beyond the dancefloor"
Some of these streams are already available via Renaissance's other channels, but Renaissance Radio is exclusive to Select. Also exclusive to Select subscribers will be remastered versions of classic Renaissance mix albums, plus the ability to re-stream the Engage audio post-broadcast.
"Mixcloud’s Select service provides the perfect platform for Renaissance in 2020," said Renaissance founder Geoff Oakes. "We’re going to deliver over six hours of music a month, with a different DJ every week, for a fraction of the price of a mix compilation!"
