Mixmag was the world’s first dance music magazine and has been the market leader ever since. It’s primarily a dance music and club culture magazine, containing current news, reviews, club guides, archives and news releases, as well as covering fashion, technology and various other aspects of the industry.
The first issue was printed on 1 February 1983 as a 16-page black-and-white magazine published by Disco Mix Club, a DJ mailout service.
When house music began, editor and DJ Dave Seaman turned the magazine from a newsletter for DJs to a magazine covering all dance music and club culture. It covered acid house, the subsequent rave era, the rise of superstar DJs and Ibiza.
Mixmag is now a magazine for the entire world of dance music, whether you like hard boshing music that’s quite intense, chill out music, or you’re someone who’s just looking to keep in touch with current EDM, Mixmag will have it covered.
In addition to the change in editorial tone, the relaunched magazine also features a fashion section and carries a covermount mix CD each month by a different DJ or artist. These have included Deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Erol Alkan, Tom Neville, Smokin’ Jo, Ferry Corsten and DJ Touche. The Mixmag YouTube channel also compliments the monthly magazine with interviews, tutorials and DJ sets.
