Dance title Mixmag has announced it will be throwing over its cover, its covermount CD and ten pages inside to one artist per month from its March issue, out on 16 Feb. A series of dance music legends will appear on the magazine’s cover, as well as editing ten pages of the magazine they front, and providing the mix on the cover CD. Said cover star will then also headline a Mixmag Live event in London, which will streamed live via the magazine’s website.

The first such cover star will be Richie Hawtin, with Simian Mobile Disco, Visionquest and Chuckie all lined up for future editions. Hawtin will play a special Mixmag Live event to launch his issue at London’s Village Underground on 23 Feb. Fans who buy his issue of the magazine will also be able to download the Remiix Mixmag app for iPhone or iPad for free, which allows users to rework and remix songs for themselves, and which has been developed by tech company Liine, of which Hawtin is a co-founder.

Commenting on all this, Mixmag Editor Nick DeCosemo told CMU: “We are all incredibly excited about this new chapter in Mixmag’s history. Mixmag has always been at the cutting edge of club culture and we believe this series of events, coupled with our new digital activity and the monthly, cornerstone, magazine cements our position as the world’s leading authority on dance music and club culture. We are also looking forward to some rather amazing parties”.
