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

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.

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.

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.
