Beatport Finally Announces A DJ Subscription Service – Beatport LINK

EDM News

Earlier this week, Beatport announced its new subscription service for DJ’s.

It has launched a beta version with the name Beatport Link, which now makes the Beatport’s music catalog available for direct streaming from a DJ performance software.

Robb McDaniel’s, Beatport’s CEO said, ‘the launch of Beatport Link exhibits our commitment to creating the best possible experience for our expanding ecosystem of DJs, and we can think of no better partner than Pioneer DJ for the service’s first software integration. We are particularly excited to introduce the upcoming Offline Performance Mode, which firmly sets Beatport LINK apart from its competitors in the DJ market.”

In addition to the release of Beatport Link, Beatport has also released Beatport Cloud, which has introduced special features for their loyal customer base. This feature includes complete track previews via Beatport’s Needle Drop player, unlimited re-downloads and a new My Library section. The starting price for the Cloud version is $4.99 per month along with the starting price of Beatport Link being $14.99. While both services are in their beta phase, Link offers a 30-day trial offer.

This launch comes after a year of speculation, which began at the Ibiza Music Summit 2018, where Beatport had announced its intentions to stream its catalog into a DJ software. 12 months later, Beatport has delivered on this feature by integrating with Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox software which streams Beatport’s complete music catalog and also has features like access to curated playlists.

We will have to wait and see how the final subscription model plays out. There is an ambitious hope that Beatport link will integrate with Traktor, Serato or other DJing software’s. While this is completely possible, we will keep you updated on hoe Link and Cloud evolve.

Apart from building brands in advertising, I love to collaborate with artists and musicians across the globe to create content and tell their stories to the world. Dance music for me has a way of understanding people’s emotions and it also inspires them to break through any barrier to create something beyond their goals.
