In a move that ushers in a new era in DJ technology, Beatsource, the music streaming service for open format DJs created by Beatport and the world’s largest promotional record pool, DJcity, recently released their Beatsource LINK technology. No matter what kind of gig, Beatsource LINK’s convenient and reliable integration with rekordbox allows instant access to all the hits from top genres including Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B, Latin, Dance, and Reggae / Dancehall. Beatsource LINK is also known for their Offline Performance Mode feature, which provides the ability to store up to 100 songs in a locker to be used without an internet connection. With this, DJs can create, build, and manage their personal playlists on Beatsource.com and not be dependent on a strong wi-fi connection for their DJ set. This unique Offline Performance Mode eliminates the need for DJs to download music and at long last makes available a reliable professional streaming solution for DJs.
