Beatport Link Announces Integration With Virtual DJ 2020

Thursday, September 26th, 2019 |

Beatport Link has integrated into Virtual DJ 2020.

While Virtual DJ may not be the gold standard at a high level like Traktor, there are still many DJs who use it regularly professionally or are learning their craft on the software. It is also the most widely used software for DJing.

Beatport’s CEO, Robb McDaniels, said in a statement, “With over 100,000,000 downloads, VirtualDJ is the most widely used DJ software in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to add this large and passionate community to the rapidly expanding Beatport LINK ecosystem.”

Beatport Link is a subscription service that allows DJs to stream Beatport’s catalog directed into various DJ software.

Beatport has already announced licensing partnerships with Dennon DJ and is in beta with Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox. More integrations are expected later this year.

Beatport launched its new streaming services Link & Cloud earlier this year in May. Link is the more expansive of the two options, allowing users to stream the six million songs found on Beatport and create your own playlists. Link costs $14.99 per month. Offline use comes through these integrations into other DJ software. When announced, it was integrated in Pioneer’s WeDJ app.

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”
