Beatport’s new streaming service will compensate artists for every play
Earlier this year, Beatport announced that they would know compete with others streaming services such as Spotify, TIDAL, or Apple Music, along with the release of their new mobile app, available for iOS and Android. Just to begin with, the electronic music content will be won hands down by Beatport.
Since its beginning, Beatport have stated that one of their biggest priorities is to help and work with the artist, and not make the artist work for them. Beatport announced that they would know compete with others streaming services such as Spotify, TIDAL, or Apple Music. First of all, the electronic music content will be won hands down by Beatport.
Beatport is now announcing that they will be paying every single play on artist’s tracks, and that’s some pretty huge news for all artists, because being played is not normally a source of revenue if newcomers publish their music somewhere else. Let’s be objective here, even if Beatport’s streaming service does not become as big as others, it will certainly win the electronic music scene’s heart. Beatport will be winning and competing strong, if, and only if, they keep their word.
In Clarke Warner’s words, Executive Creative Director of Beatport:
“Our embeddable streaming music player not only helps artists promote their music by making it available wherever their fans live online, but we are also taking the necessary steps to pay rightsholders for each listen so artists get paid.”
Could Beatport get one of the big spots in streaming service?
