Our story

It was 2007 when 23-year-old Daniel Marhely began working on a project to simplify music access for his friends.

Working initially from his Paris bedroom, Daniel soon recognized the potential of his idea and gathered a small team together. It didn't take long for investors and music labels to catch on. Today Deezer is available in more than 180 countries, partnering with thousands of independent and major labels, with one of the largest catalogues out there (73 million tracks and counting).

We combine human recommendations from the Deezer Editors with smart technology to help people discover music they'll love. Everyone can enjoy unlimited music on mobile and web, while Deezer Premium subscribers benefit from music as well as entertainment and sports on demand on all devices, without ads, in enhanced audio quality.

The adventure continues...
