LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Beatport has announced it has acquired the assets of DJ streaming and subscription service Pulselocker.
Pulselocker closed in November. It launched in 2012 as a subscription service providing DJs with the ability to stream content from the cloud in an ad-hoc fashion and play content from the company’s “locker” technology without an internet connection, according to a statement. Beatport says the acquistions will pave the the way for the creation of a next generation offering for its half-million DJ customers.
“Within six months of taking the helm at Beatport, Robb and his gifted leadership team have consistently validated LiveStyle’s vison of supporting innovative strategies and fiscal responsibility by taking Beatport to the next level,” LiveStyle President/CEO Randy Phillips said.
Beatport, a division of LiveStyle, provides music in digital formats and provides music discovery tools for and by DJs.
Beatport acquired Pulselocker’s assets from its assignee for the benefit of creditors, Mark S. Horoupian of SulmeyerKupetz, APC in Los Angeles.
