Sir Ivan, in what ended up to be the most creative "greatest hits" project in history, rewarded 10 DJs from all around the world for taking his top 18 songs from his catalog and producing a 60-minute "mega-mix" in their own individually creative ways.
The project was a way for Sir Ivan to help nightclub DJs that have been out of work due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The top five winners are Plurthlings (Denver, CO USA), DJ Tailik (Melbourne, AU), Donette Gómez (Veracruz, Mexico), Mourin DJ (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and Henry Ortiz (Santander, Columbia). They each received a $1,000 cash prize directly from Sir Ivan. They also received an artist promotion package from renowned public relations and promotion company Matt Caldwell PR.
In addition to the top five cash winners, Sir Ivan also awarded five runners-up: Gozu (Eskisehir, Turkey), Paul Ross (Glasgow, Scotland), Mavvwa (Colombo, Sri Lanka), Drop Ground (Mexico), and Tago (Portugal) with a copy of The Dance Music Manual, signed by the author, which is revered as "the bible of electronic music production" by top dance music producers.

The giving certainly didn't stop there as Sir Ivan also donated an additional $5,000 to Insomniac's "Rave Recovery" fund. The money was earmarked to help even more DJs that are out of work due to the pandemic.
With the help of an esteemed "A-list DJ" panel of judges - Paul Oakenfold, Bassjackers, DJs From Mars, Tenishia, and Exodus - the MegaMix project reached over eight million people worldwide.
