A DJ needs to get professional skills in mixing and making cool masterpieces of music. But it is not enough to get skills only; also it is necessary to buy some tools for DJing. Nowadays there are many DJ tools available, so, it is important to find out high-quality music sources to get tracks for mixing.
Undoubtedly, Spotify is the best choice for DJs, considering:
- the volume of its music library,
- convenient mechanisms for matching music similar to customers’ tastes,
- genre segregation,
- low subscription fees.
Unfortunately, Spotify has announced that starting from July 1, 2020, the company stopped supporting third-party DJ applications.
So, the answer to the question: Is it illegal to use the Spotify app to DJ is obvious. But of course, some inventive DJs as usual have found a way out. All music content from the Spotify app is protected by DRM. This means that there is no way you can play this music on a third-party application. Therefore, it is necessary to get rid of the DRM.
There are many different applications for this purpose. They can remove DRM and convert necessary tracks to any format. To do it, you should act due to strict algorithm:
- download the conversion application and register there if necessary,
- open the Spotify application,
- drag and drop from there (or just copy the link) the tracks you want to mix,
- then select the source format you want to convert your music into,
- define a folder where you want to save the converted tracks.
Once everything is done and you have the music in the right format, you can use it for DJing. Just upload it to the application you use and enjoy the result.
When it comes to streaming platforms, in general, it’s hard to choose which one to use. The market offers plenty of options. The MusConv application can transport music between 50 different services. So, feel free to find something you like, download the program, and enjoy the results.
