If you are a professional or even a beginner DJ, then you are probably familiar with specialized services for artists and DJs, one of which is Beatport.
This is an American online music streaming store where DJs from all over the world can purchase licensed music content and then use it at their discretion, including in their work.
If you have a Beatport account, you can follow other users, artists, and music labels by clicking the Follow button on your profile card. Based on your subscriptions, Beatport generates personalized recommendations that are sent to you by email.
Beatport has exclusive releases that can only be heard or purchased on site. They are labeled “Exclusive”. This status is maintained for two weeks from the moment of the premiere, then the artist uploads the release to other platforms.
How to subscribe? To do this, take a few simple steps:
- Create an account on Beatport by filling in your payment details, first and last name, email, account type, and password.
- Go to the “Subscribe” section in the main menu of the site.
- Select the required subscription. If you didn’t have a subscription before, you can use the “Try for free for 30 days” option. In any case, you will need to re-enter the payment details with which the subscription cost will be debited. If you decide to try the free period, the subscription fee will be charged after the free period expires. You will be notified about the withdrawal of funds 6 days before the end of the trial subscription.
LINK allows you to play music from your Beatport library during performances. The main advantage of LINK is that it gives you access to the entire Beatport music library to create a DJ set.
Beatport DJ LINK includes basic music mixing functions and a convenient track search in the service library. The web application is also suitable for those who are just trying their hand at DJing – the user does not need to buy third-party programs and equipment.
When the user opens the app, he sees basic hints: how to load two tracks for mixing, where the crossfader is located, how to add a playlist. You can also connect a Serato, Rekordbox, Traktor, Denon DJ, djay, DJUCED, Virtual DJ, WeDJ or Reloop controller to the web app.
These are applications that are compatible and work effectively with Beatport. For a DJ, Beatport is first and foremost a great tool for finding and buying electronic music for sets and mixes. There is a huge amount of mix-friendly music on both official and DJ charts. But such a platform has a downside: many DJs now play the same tracks, and Beatport has largely unified the genres of electronic music.
