Despite the fact that music streaming services have filled the whole world today, online music stores continue to flourish. This is understandable, because, as they say, for every product there is a buyer.
The fact is that the main consumers of licensed music content in online stores are the music industry. While the main target audience of music streaming platforms are simple music lovers.
In the first case, music is used for commercial purposes, in the second case, for personal purposes. This is a general rule to which, of course, there are exceptions. But they rather confirm the rules themselves.
Beatport is considered a popular online music store among DJs that specializes in niche audio content. Here you can find thematic selections of songs, playlists for certain genres and much more, which will greatly facilitate the work of DJs. They do not have to deal with the selection of thematic playlists on their own and spend time and effort on this.
Traxsource, in turn, is very similar to its direct competitor, but it still has some differences. He, like Beatport, works around the clock in real time. Both services were born in the United States of America, both have approximately equal conditions for subscribers.
Traxsource tracks typically cost $1.99, although their compilations and albums often offer significant discounts. This service is much more likely than its competitor to hold various promotions for its customers and has a more effective loyalty program for subscribers.
On Traxsource, the inquisitive DJ will be able to find rare underground gems that are a priori absent from Beatport, so this platform is especially interesting for niche DJs who want to surprise their audience.
Traxsource leans much more towards house music. It doesn’t have as many musical genres as Beatport, but it does have a much larger selection of content in each of the genres available.
To truly appreciate all the advantages and disadvantages of each of these online stores, it is worth trying to work with each of them. And after that, make an appropriate qualified conclusion.
