Beatport Launches Party Mode for Beatport DJ
Beatport, the global leader of music for DJs, producers, and their fans, announced today their latest groundbreaking advancement in DJ technology: Party Mode, a new feature inside Beatport DJ and Beatsource DJ that gives you latency-free, connected DJ sessions with up to four DJs at once enabling B2B sessions from anywhere in the world.
This first-of-its-kind, interactive performance tool has various applications that will completely revolutionize how DJs perform, learn, connect, and enjoy the art of DJing. For DJs looking to learn the fundamentals of DJing, or even teach them to someone else, Party Mode’s easy-to-use interface makes it an ideal classroom for those looking to start their DJ journey.
Party Mode allows DJs to exchange tracks, dig through the Beatport and Beatsource catalogues to find new music, and co-build playlists directly in our web-based DJ software. Additionally, DJs can invite up to 100 fans to watch, listen, and join in on the action in real time with Party Mode’s track request and chat function, all while creating shared playlists that all participants can save. Viewers can dig through Beatport’s catalogue via the app’s discovery function and chime in with “track requests” at any time, all while creating a shared session playlist that every participant can save.
“The Party Mode feature for Beatport and Beatsource DJ web apps is bringing a new era of collaborative DJing,” said Romain Pouillon, SVP & GM of The Beatport Group. “Whether DJs want to communicate with their fans in new and innovative ways, prepare for a gig, teach or learn the fundamentals of DJing, or simply play, socialize, and bond with friends over their shared passion for music discovery and DJing, Party Mode will provide accessibility to all of these.”
“Party mode is an idea that I had always wanted to build. Ironically, it’s the first feature we’ve created exclusively for the connected community designed to share the love of DJing,” said Jonas Tempel, Co-founder of Beatport and current Strategic Advisor. “For the first time ever, you can DJ with your friends, invite fans, share music, learn new tricks and explore our global catalogs of music all within the browser. It’s a dream tool for all levels of DJs and their fans.”
“When I had the chance to play with an early version of Party Mode with Jamie Jones I know this would be something special, said DJ and Producer, Loco Dice. Beatport is connecting people through music.”
DJ and Producer, Joyce Muniz adds, “When I found out about Party Mode, I was immediately very impressed. The ability to play back to back with a friend from another part of the world, it’s very cool and something I’ve always hoped for. Also, the fact that you can interact with your fans like never before is going to be a game charger for artists to promote themselves with.”
