Beatport streaming service for DJs is now available in Rekordbox

Beatport’s new subscription service product LINK is available as a public beta in Pioneer DJ’s rekordbox software.
Laptop DJs with either a LINK PRO ($39.99 a month) or LINK PRO+ ($59.99 a month) account will be able to store 50 and 100 tracks offline respectively, allowing users to play the tracks in a club without relying on an internet connection. According to Beatport, the streaming component will offer tracks at a quality level “higher level than 320kbps MP3 files.” The beta is currently only available on Mac.

The service sparked controversy among some label owners and producers who fear the subscription model will impact download sales, especially in light of the tiny dividends artists make from streaming services like Spotify.
