Beatport introduces streaming service for DJs

DJ-centric music platform Beatport is making one more attempt at streaming. The company introduced a subscription service called Beatport LINK in beta. This platform will make the retailer’s entire catalog available to stream directly into performance software. Beatport has tried to make its electronic-heavy catalog available as a streaming service in the past, but shuttered that project to focus on its download store. More integrations for this platform will be announced over the rest of 2019.

“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‚Äôs first software integration,” Beatport CEO Robb McDaniels said. “We are particularly excited to introduce the upcoming Offline Performance Mode, which firmly sets Beatport LINK apart from its competitors in the DJ market.”
