Disco Mix Club (DMC) is primarily a remix label under BPI (British Phonographic Industry) licence, which is not intended for the mass market but rather exclusively for professional DJs and enthusiasts. The DMC sells every month megamixes and remixes produced by other DJs, and publishes the weekly magazine, Update. The monthly Mixmag was published by the DMC in the beginning, but it was bought in January 1997 by the British media group EMAP, and then taken in December 2005 by Development Hell.

The first DJs who created the remixes and megamixes are among the best known: Alan Coulthard[1](who is also the creator of "Megamix" 1 taken on behalf of the DMC), Sanny Xenokottas (Sanny X), the Adams, Chad Jackson, Dave Seaman, Steve Anderson, Peter Slaghuis, Daniel Culot (DJ Jaguar from 1986 to 1990, one of the creators/producers of the Belgian new beat movement in 1988), Paul Dakeyne and Ben Liebrand. There were 17 months of cassettes(from February 1983) which consists each month of a cassette with mixes and one or more cassettes of previews. On the cassettes were on the previews sometimes the long 12 or album versions. In July 1984 they left the cassettes and started issuing on vinyl(The 18th issue of DMC). There were one or more record with mixes and one or more records with previews. On the vinyl previews were only edit or single versions. Then in 1989, both on CD and vinyl and currently offered in the form of CD's,CD-R's and download mp3 platform. From that time until now the cover changed each few years. The DMC is headquartered in Slough, Berkshire, west of London, with offices in New York and has a network of correspondents in antennas in over thirty different countries.
