Beatport Rallies DJs Worldwide to Help Fight Climate Change With #ListenParis2015

DENVER, CO and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 3, 2015) - Beatport, the pulse of electronic music and culture, is rallying its global base of DJs and electronic music artists to provide a custom soundtrack for the #ListenParis2015 climate change awareness initiative.

#ListenParis2015 is a worldwide silent disco and communal music event taking place during the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris to bring attention to the issue of sustainable energy through music. Beginning Saturday, Dec. 5 at 5:00 p.m. Paris time and continuing for 24 hours, Beatport will provide a live stream of music uniting the world through a common music experience, where participants will tune into the same music, at the same time, in support of the same message.

To do so, Beatport has enlisted a collection of over a dozen DJs and artists from all corners of the globe, with more still being added, to contribute playlists and mixes for this effort, most of which are exclusive to Beatport. They include:

Above and Beyond, UK
Oliver Heldens, The Netherlands

DJ Three, USA
Gui Boratto, Brazil
March Houle, Canada
Michael Mayer, Germany

"We applaud the efforts of the #ListenParis2015 organizers and our global community of DJs and creators for their support and involvement in such an important and global initiative," said Beatport President and CEO Greg Consiglio. "Resolution of the climate change issue requires cooperation, inspiration, and communication among citizens and leaders from diverse cultures and backgrounds worldwide. What better way to contribute than through the universal language of electronic music?"
