Muzik was a UK dance music magazine published by IPC Media from June 1995[1] to August 2003.[2]

Muzik was created by two former Melody Maker journalists, Push and Ben Turner. Push was the editor of Muzik from its launch until he left the magazine in 1998, at which point Turner took over as editor. The title was subsequently edited by Conor McNicholas, who went on to edit the New Musical Express.

Aimed at serious dance music fans rather than weekend clubbers, Muzik's writers included a number of well-known DJs, including Kris Needs, Rob Da Bank, Spoony, Terry Farley, Bob Jones, Jonty Skrufff and Dave Mothersole. The magazine sold over 50,000 copies a month at its peak, but was closed down by IPC Media just one issue short of its 100th edition.
