As we are called the Playlist DJs, we thought it would be a good idea to have at least one house music playlist on all the various platforms that are around. Right now, we mainly use Spotify and Soundcloud to get our music with the odd share coming from YouTube (but not YouTube Music).
We mainly use Spotify at the moment as this is the one we find easiest to use and it has the most relevant tracks for our house music tastes. We do however understand that it’s not always favourable in the payouts to artists and we hope that’s something that will change in the future.
So, let’s start off with the new-ish kid on the block, Amazon Music which entered into the music streaming world in 2007 / 2008.
This is a deep house now playlist generated by Amazon. Not all tracks are available as it looks like Amazon want you to take on their free trial then pay £7.99 for their premium service. If you click and sign up via this link you will get a special deal (Playlist DJ’s get a small kickback as an affiliate).
So, Deezer lets you play the music you just have to hear, instantly, according to their website.
Jump in and explore over 73 million tracks (and counting), and discover artists and tracks you’ll love with personalised recommendations from the Deezer Editors.
Deezer works across all your devices, both online and offline, with no listening limits. It’s music at your fingertips for waking up, getting going, chilling out, living life.
Those were Deezer’s words. Let’s help get you rolling and check out a list of their deep housemusic playlists here. On an initial look it appears this could be more the commercial / cheesier side of house but we need to use it in more depth to see.
So Tidal, which was formed in 2014, pitches itself differently to Spotify.
TIDAL is a global music streaming platform bringing fans closer to artists through unique experiences and the highest sound quality.
Tidal boasts a HIFI option which you will pay double the price of Spotify for. For £19.99 you are getting HIFI sound quality, master sound quality, Dolby atmos, and Sony 360 Reality Audio. There are also 70mil plus songs which seems like the standard number across these platforms. They also host exclusive videos, live streams and events, so you can see they are making efforts to differentiate themselves from that other platforms.
Here is an initial search for deep house on Tidal. We will make out own playlist here in the coming weeks and share it across our social media pages.
YouTube is the daddy of music (video) streaming / viewing BUT for us it has one flaw and that is it stops playing when you go off app, unlike Spotify and the rest. In step YouTubeMusic which doesn’t do this and acts as its own streaming platform in itself.
We’ve already got numerous playlists on YouTube which feed into YouTubeMusic and you can find those housemusic playlists listed here.
So, for iphone / ipad users we have Apple Music! We use this to buy tunes, download and apply to music on The Playlist DJs Instagram page. We don’t use it for streaming as yet, so any feedback you have would be appreciated. Perhaps drop us a tweet @playlistdjs .

Soundcloud is a funny old platform. We adopted it around the same time as Spotify and have used it on and off over the years. It had some really hard to find stuff and a lot of cracking white label / bootleg stuff on their too that you will not find anywhere else. We always dip back into it for that reason. We also have a ton of playlists on there too, but we need to release more. Click the image to check them out.
Ok, so there’s our quick round up. We will keep this blog updated as things change. We also appreciate there are more streaming sites like Mixcloud but we are looking at places where you can get single tracks and make Playlists.
