Beatsource Launches ‘VIP Crates’ Curated by World’s Top DJs

Beatsource Launches ‘VIP Crates’ Curated by World’s Top DJs

Today Beatsource announced the launch of VIP Crates, an on-going series of playlists curated by the world’s most influential DJs. Compiled exclusively for Beatsource, the playlists give insight into which tracks grace the sets of top tastemaker DJs worldwide.

To kick off the series, Beatsource has called upon a diverse group of open-format DJs from hot spots like Los Angeles, London, Las Vegas, Miami, and beyond. They include:

  • Lil Jon, GRAMMY award-winning multi-platinum artist
  • Tay James, Justin Bieber’s tour DJ
  • DJ Amen, music director at LA’s REAL 92.3 and DJ for San Francisco 49ers
  • ZHU, GRAMMY-nominated artist
  • Walshy Fire, member of Major Lazer
  • DJ EFN, co-host of Drinks Champs podcast
  • Craig David, GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum artist
  • Charlie Sloth, host of Apple Music 1’s Charlie Sloth Rap Show
  • Joel Corry, platinum artist
  • Nathan Dawe, platinum artist
  • James Hype, platinum artist
  • DJ Javin, mixer at SiriusXM’s Globalization and Phoenix’s Power 98.3

Beatsource board member, A-Trak, says:

VIP Crates is a perfect example of Beatsource’s brilliance. DJing is more than just keeping up with the newest releases and knowing the classics. Every DJ has their own personal go-to’s, those tracks that never leave the crates even though they never charted. Weapons, tools. Being able to tap into that with a subscription is huge.

Kidd Spin, Beatsource’s head of curation, adds:

“DJs are often curious as to what other DJs are playing in their sets. Clubs and live shows are far and few between these days, so there’s virtually no way to know what our favorite DJs are currently into or being influenced by without a direct connection. VIP Crates gives insight into what top tastemaker DJs are feeling right now, and the varying playlists show great diversity – from all genres, eras, and styles.”

Edwin Paredes, Beatsource’s chief content officer, also commented:

“The groundswell of support we’ve received from these enormously successful artists and DJs wanting to be a part of our initial rollout of VIP Crates has been amazing. We’re looking forward to adding more influential tastemakers to the VIP Crates mix in the coming months.”

The playlists are available on the Beatsource LINK music streaming service for open-format DJs.

The Beatsource LINK streaming service for open-format DJs can now be used with the industry-standard performance software, Serato DJ. The highly anticipated integration is available in Serato DJ Pro 2.4 and Lite 1.4, which were released on Monday.

Launched in May, Beatsource LINK lets DJs stream tracks from the Beatsource library, including thousands of expertly curated playlists, directly from their DJ software.

A-Trak, renowned DJ/producer and Beatsource board member, says:

“It’s inevitable that DJs will need access to the massive streaming libraries of songs for their DJ sets. The important thing is to not force DJs to change the equipment or software that they use. That’s why Beatsource’s integration into Serato is so important. Also, what impressed me the most was the ability to create playlists on the Beatsource site as you’re searching for music and having them sync up to your Serato.”

Brian “DJ Quickie” Wong, president of Beatsource, adds:

“Lead by Serato in the early 2000’s, the transition from vinyl to digital changed DJing forever. Trailblazers like A-Trak, DJ AM, and Jazzy Jeff opened our minds to what Serato’s technology could allow us to do. Today, over 15 years later, we are living in a moment that will again change DJing forever. DJs no longer need to shop for, purchase, and store their music. Instead, DJs will simply access the Beatsource DJ library, which will be available instantly and everywhere with Serato, and the value will be in each DJs curation and knowledge of their personal playlists and crates. DJs will no longer be limited by what they can own and store, but rather by what they can do with their musical creativity. This opens up a world of imagination for the next generation of DJs, and I can’t wait to see what they do with our technology.”

Beatport LINK, which is based on the same technology as Beatsource LINK, is also now available in Serato DJ Pro 2.4 and Lite 2.4.
