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.

Testimonials

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.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

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.

Director, North America - YM&U Music

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

Producer/DJ/Activist/Netflix Host

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.
