Beatport introduces new streaming service, Beatport LINK
Beatport has announced a new streaming service aimed at DJ’s called Beatport LINK.
This new service was developed in concert with Pioneer DJ, and it will allow subscribers to stream Beatport’s entire catalog directly to DJ performance software such as Rekordbox. Currently, the beta version of the software is only available through Pioneer’s WeDJ mobile app, becoming available for Rekordbox this fall.
For $14.99 per month, Beatport LINK subscribers will have access to over 7 million songs which they can put into customized playlists and charts. These charts can be imported directly to DJ performance software as well, with the complete version of the service offering an Offline Performance Mode. This will allow users to play their saved tracks without an internet connection similar to other streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music.
Beatport also introduced the beta for Beatport CLOUD to be included in Beatport LINK. Beatport CLOUD will expand on what’s offered for free on Beatport.com via full track previews, unlimited re-downloads of purchased tracks and a new “My Library” section. Beatport CLOUD is available as a stand-alone subscription for $4.99 per month.
