Beatsource, the digital music platform for open-format DJs from DJcity and Beatport, announced today that they are launching a new Beatsource LINK playlist series that features priorities from some of the world’s most successful record labels.
They’re calling the series “Label Priorities” and the aim is to keep DJs ahead of the curve with access to the newest breaking tracks that may not yet be ranked on traditional music charts .
This industry insider list has historically been exclusive to a small group of tastemakers such as radio programmers and influential DJs. “Label Priorities” upgrades this process by giving Beatsource LINK subscribers direct access to this regularly updated content whenever they open their DJ software.
The inaugural “Label Priorities” playlist is launching today with Republic Records, a label that regularly dominates the charts. Republic’s new “Label Priorities” playlist contains the latest from Drake, Pop Smoke, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Post Malone and many others.
“We’re excited about the Beatsource platform,” says Davey Dee Ingenloff, VP of Rhythm Promotion at Republic. “It’s giving DJs a place to embrace the future of where technology is going. We’ve been following the growth and are proud to be the first major label participant in putting together a playlist.”
Beatsource’s Chief Content Officer, Edwin “Phenom” Paredes commented: “Labels have been sending custom playlists of their most important records to select groups of tastemaker DJs for years now. What our new Label Priorities playlist does is bring these exclusive tracks to all of the DJs in our network. It’s going to be a game changer for Beatsource DJs.”
“This new playlist series is great for labels and artists because Beatsource ensures that they get paid for every single spin and stream from DJs wherever in the world they’re spinning,” continued Paredes.
“It also provides a wealth of information to labels because they can now see what tracks are breaking in various territories around the world.”
