Spotify launches DJ Mixes

By News No Comments

Spotify has added a new area dedicated to DJ mixes.

The new area premiered in the first week of October, as well as new mixes from artists such as Adam Beyer and Noisia, and other previous mix content from the Spotify archive.

Currently, the service is offered in eight markets: the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Australia, and New Zealand. Spotify stated in an official statement that it expects the list of areas to grow shortly.

The initiative, which comes on the heels of a similar statement made by Apple Music in September, provides a possible new cash source for creatives. Spotify has recently been under increased scrutiny as concerns about the broader streaming strategy have arisen. According to a recent UK survey, just 0.4 percent of musicians make a living solely from streaming.

Hopefully, we will have a larger catalog including DJs from different music style in the near future.

Apple Music will monetize DJ mixes

By News No Comments

According to Apple Music’s press release, the company is launching a big new endeavor to upload and reward DJ mixes.

Apple Music has been focusing more on DJ mixes lately, they’ve developed an algorithm based on Shazam technology to “identify and compensate all of the individual creators involved in making a particular DJ Mix, including any artists behind the music in that mix,” according to a press release.

Boiler Room, Tomorrowland, Mixmag and Cercle are just a few of the organizations that Apple Music has collaborated with to offer mix material to the platform thus far. Charlotte de Witte, a techno icon, is launching a mix series in July, which includes a fitness-specific series. Apple Music’s relationship with!K7’s long-running DJ-Kicks series is the focus of Friday’s announcement. As a result of this new technology, the series will be able to go into its archives from the 1990s.

Horst Weidenmueller, the label’s creator, remarked, “This is a significant milestone for K7!”. This relationship allows us to commemorate DJ-Kicks with 14 new versions that haven’t been on the market in over 15 years, thanks to our connection with Apple.”

Will this trigger the end of Soundcloud and Mixcloud?
