Apple Music Launches Its First Africa Now DJ Mix Featuring SPINALL



Apple Music announces the expansion of its flagship African Music playlist and radio show, Africa Now, to include a new monthly DJ Mix created exclusively for the platform.


The first DJ to create an Africa Now DJ Mix is Nigerian superstar DJ, producer and entrepreneur, SPINALL (real name Oluseye Desmond Sodamola), whose original material straddles Afrobeats, Afropop and EDM, and who has collaborated with Africa’s biggest names like Wizkid (“Nowo” & “Loju”), Tiwa Savage, Nasty C and Asake as well as international stars like Summer Walker, DJ Make and 6LACK.



SPINALL’s exclusive Africa Now DJ Mix features 40 tracks including hits from the likes of Asake, Rema, Omah Lay, Davido & Adekunle Gold. “The Africa Now playlist has been one of the most influential Afro playlists showcasing some of Africa’s biggest and potential smash hits,” SPINALL tells Apple Music. “It’s an honour to be the first African DJ to produce a mix for this amazing playlist. I have also added a few exclusives you will never find anywhere else. Ladies and gentlemen, dive into this mix with a confident speaker or headphones, and let the mix light up your world!”.


Apple Music is the ultimate hub to an eclectic array of independently curated DJ Mixes from Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda and Ghana. Apple Music’s African DJ Mix curator partners also include a wide variety of top-tier names like Balcony Mix Africa,iMullar Sound System, KUNYE, Life Of The Party, Obrigado, Pan African Music, Party In The Jungle, Soul Candi, Spin With Engage and Turntable Entertainment.
“If you have observed the evolution of African Music, you wouldn’t deny that DJs have been a necessary link between a track and its intended audience, through nightlife, radio and DJ mix CDs sold in traffic, especially unique to Nigeria in the early 2000s.  DJ mixes on Apple Music hasn’t only revived the DJs relevance, but has also created a new and substantial revenue stream for DJs, and for the audience – a nostalgic, new and exciting way to enjoy music. In my opinion, this program is genius.” – David Evans-Uhegbu, Party In The Jungle



“What started out as a modest record store in the prime of vinyl music, Soul Candi as a brand evolved into a key figure in South African and African House Music culture. Highly renowned for our critically acclaimed compilations, Soul Candi Records delivered some of the most sought after DJ mixes in South Africa. With a global shift from physical to digital music consumption, it no longer made it possible to bring these to our fans on some of their favourite streaming platforms, but that is no longer the case. Soul Candi is proud to announce that many of our classic compilations will be available to stream in their entirety on Apple Music. Soul Candi Sessions, Stereo Candi, Music Box, House for Lovers to name but a few. Relive the nostalgia thanks to Apple Music DJ mixes.” – Adrien Conradie, Soul Candi


“Our mix curator page is dedicated to championing the most exciting and exceptional DJ mixes across Africa. We are focused on promoting the most distinct African DJs in ways that make them engage with one another’s work, further building a musical audience influenced by the quality of mixes performed by these DJs who can virtually bring any mood to life. Our journey to supplying DJ Mixes to Apple Music started first as an idea to showcase the best of Africa’s talent through meticulously curated DJ Mixes and to create more opportunities for African artists through these mixes with the mind of building their audience on Apple Music. With a digital platform like Apple Music, more African DJs are being allowed to showcase their creative potential. More than ever before, DJ Mixes have become an engaging option for music lovers as they offer a seamless listening experience without the need to click to the next song when listening.” – Bugwu Aneto-Okeke,  Spin With Engage
