Apple has announced that its Apple Music service is debuting a new process using Shazam to identify tracks in DJ mixes. In addition to helping listeners find new music, the process will also serve to ensure that rights holders get compensated fairly for the use of their tracks.
“We’ve created a tool, where effectively we let DJ mixes run through the Shazam technology and Shazam identifies exactly what’s in a mix and they do that with a very, very high degree of success,” says Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music and Beats told Billboard. “For a lot of dance music and DJs who make music, the music never really found it to streaming services because there just wasn’t a great process for how labels could clear the music that’s in a DJ mix, because the labels or the distributors didn’t know what was in the mix.”
Schusser added that Apple Music has around 1,200 mixes currently available, having received over 300 million streams. In addition, Apple Music subscribers can save individual songs from mixes directly to their Apple Music library. And though the mix program is currently heavily curated, and therefore limited, the company says it plans to expand the available catalog of mixes.
The rekordbox Professional plan is the first-ever DJ software to offer unlimited storage capacity via Dropbox. Users can upload their tracks to the cloud, which retains metadata such as playlists, hot cues, loops, and tags.
The plan allows DJs to create a database for each device they use. By backing up the device database, they can then can easily recover their library from rekordbox at any time if one device is lost or damaged. The plan also offers the ability to sync your rekordbox library across up to eight devices, for easy gig prep on-the-go.

SoundSwitch is a lighting software platform which allows DJs to sync their light show to Serato DJ Pro, Virtual DJ, and Engine OS, as well as other software via Ableton Link. The new 2.3 version takes things to a different level, thanks to the integration of Philips Hue smart lighting.
