With the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online’s latest update, The Cayo Perico Heist comes a range of musical updates including the launch of the game’s latest nightclub, The Music Locker, and much more. Beatport has partnered with Rockstar Games to celebrate the vast musical legacy of the Grand Theft Auto series over the coming weeks.

The latest evolution in Rockstar’s relationship with dance music, The Music Locker is a new club, open to all players, designed to be a place for players to dance and socialize while listening to the world’s best dance music. In true Rockstar fashion, the gaming company has pulled out all the stops, with performances from a stunning lineup of Music Locker residents: Detroit legend Moodymann, Berlin collective Keinemusik, and disco/house selector extraordinaire Palms Trax.

This isn’t the first time Rockstar has ventured into the club. Back in 2018 with GTA Online: After Hours, Solomun, The Blessed Madonna, Tale Of Us, and Dixon all became part of GTA lore with their own characters and sets in the game. Besides The Music Locker, the new GTA Online update features a private new radio station from Joy Orbison as well as new mixes for existing stations from Gilles Peterson (Worldwide FM) and Flying Lotus (Flylo FM).

To kick things off, we’ll be streaming Palms Trax live on Beatport’s Twitch channel on Thursday, December 17th, at 16:15 CET. You can expect more streams to follow, as well as an inside look at the musical legacy of Grand Theft Auto, its radio stations, and its clubs; and a remix competition with incredible prizes — check back for more info soon.
