Beatport is bringing a new downloading and subscription service called, CLOUD and LINK, to DJs. While CLOUD will be an add-on service for Beatport’s loyal customers, Beatport LINK will allow DJs to integrate Beatport’s catalog into their DJ performance software. This comes after a year of speculation since Beatport had initially announced plans of a streaming catalog into DJ software at the Ibiza Music Summit in 2018.
LINK will first come to Pioneer DJ’s WeDJ app, followed by Pioneer DJ’s own flagship Rekordbox DJ. Rekordbox DJ will bring the ability to access curated playlists, higher quality audio, and offline performance mode. No word on whether LINK will be coming to Traktor, Serato or other DJ performance software, however.
Alternatively, CLOUD will bring a new set of features for their “loyal customer base”. Such features will include an unlimited re-downloads, a new My Library selection, and a Needle Drop player, which allows any part of a track to be previewed.
Although both CLOUD and LINK are in their Beta versions, prices are at a reasonable price. Prices start at $4.99 per month for CLOUD and $14.99 per month to add LINK.
