Beatport’s recently-minted streaming music service for dance fans has some competition. Online radio firm Digitally Imported is branching out into on-demand subscriptions, with a $7-a-month premium tier that will provide access to a catalogue of more than 400k tracks, as well as its archive of radio shows.
According to TheNextWeb, the service will launch initially in the US, before expanding globally. It also notes plans for subscribers to be able to buy tracks – something that might sound counter-productive on other streaming services, but less so in the dance world, with DJs likely to be among Digitally Imported’s keenest users. Beatport’s streaming service launched in beta earlier this year, while Pulselocker has been around for a couple of years now with its streaming service for DJs – including shifting emphasis towards partnerships to provide its catalogue of music within DJ applications.
