(CelebrityAccess) — Beatport, the digital music service aimed at professional DJs and EDM enthusiasts, announced it was partnering with promo pool DJCity to launch Beatsource.
Set for a launch in Q2, Beatsource will provide access to a broad catalog of hits and pre-release content customarily serviced through the DJ promo
As part of the joint venture, Beatport has developed a road map for integrating the DJcity promo pool functionality into the Beatsource platform later in 2019, and DJcity will continue to deliver music to its existing clients as it rebrands to focus on Beatsource.
The Los Angeles-based DJcity is a provider of music, including custom-produced edits, to the open-format DJ community, and began as an online vinyl record marketplace in 1999.
“When Beatport decided to expand its footprint into the open-format DJ market, we quickly realized that DJcity had been the leading supplier of music to a dedicated customer base for the last two decades and had the knowledge and passion to help us launch Beatsource”, said Beatport Boss Robb McDaniels.
“We couldn’t be more confident in Brian, Edwin and their team to help us execute on this amazing opportunity to provide open-format DJs with a fully integrated and highly curated music experience”, added McDaniels.
The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
