Amazon Music's 'DJ Mode' recreates the old school radio vibe

 9 days ago

Amazon might have a solution if the non-stop music of streaming services sounds a little too clinical next to the dynamic vibe of radio. The company has introduced a "DJ Mode" to Amazon Music that intersperses stations with commentary and insights from DJs, artists, "tastemakers," and even Pop-Up Video-style music trivia from Alexa. The Rap Rotation playlist will include occasional drop-ins from DJ Letty and rap stars, for example, while a Billie Eilish Takeover experience melds her curated songs with stories about her music and favorite tracks.
