Beatport has announced a new subscription service for DJs, Beatport LINK. The software makes Beatport’s extensive music catalog available to stream directly into DJ performance software.

Beatport LINK also includes Beatport CLOUD. Beatport CLOUD introduces a suite of features such as full track previews via the company’s proprietary Needle Drop Player, unlimited re-downloads of previously purchased tracks, and the My Library section. Beatport CLOUD is also available as a standalone subscription service.

Beatport LINK’s first performance software integration is with Pioneer DJ’s WeDJ app. Further integrations and partnerships will be rolled out in 2019, including Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox software in fall. An offline performance mode will also be introduced, setting it apart from competitors.

“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’s first software integration. We are particularly excited to introduce the upcoming Offline Performance Mode, which firmly sets Beatport LINK apart from its competitors in the DJ market.”

Beatsource, a joint venture between DJcity and Beatport, will release Beatsource LINK later in 2019 to bring DJ streaming to the open-format community.

Beatport LINK and Beatport CLOUD are available in beta here and here.
