The CEO of Beatport revealed recently that the company wlil add a new cloud subscription service for professional DJs later this year. Robb McDaniels sat down for an interview with MusicWeek to discuss the future of Beatport.
McDaniels said “We can also make it easier on the professional DJs, so that they don’t have to download the song and carry those with them to the show. We’re creating a locker functionality, where they can download the audio and access that locker from performance software.”
According to HypeBot:
McDaniels, who founded INGrooves, joined the Beatport team in late 2017, after its parent company had transitioned from SFX Entertainment to LiveStyle, following the dramatic bankruptcy of the former company.
McDaniels added “There’s a massive opportunity for us to become more successful and give this genre and community a better platform and a bigger voice.”
The new cloud based service for DJs will launch in the third quarter of this year.
