Twitch Launches Music Library: Video Game Streaming Service Unveils Label Partnerships with Skrillex's OWSLA, Steve Aoki's Dim Mak and More

Buzz 16:38PM EDT

A video game streaming service has announced today, Jan. 15, that it is expanding into the music arena with a new Twitch Music section of its website. It will feature a growing library of music from approved publishers and labels and allow for artists to stream their own original music through the service. Twitch music, as of this writing, has 538 songs in its catalog and has deals with publishers like Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records, Skrillex's OWSLA, Flux Pavilion's Circus Records, Spinnin' Records and more. It is primarily EDM-focused for now, but in the site's FAQ, it clarifies that "our intention is to add music from all genres to our library." Twitch and the music community have been closely intertwined for some time now. Krewella unveiled their first song post-Kris Trindl, "Say Goodbye," through the service. Skrillex live streamed his OWSLA holiday party through the service in December. Several artists like deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson and Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit have partnered with Twitch to live stream their own video game playing. Indie dance music label Monstercat has helped pave the way for the music library with a 24/7 music channel called Monstercat FM.READ MORE
