DJ-tech firm Serato launches Pyro automatic-mixes app

Serato is best known for its software for professional DJs, but now it’s targeting a more mainstream audience with an iOS app called Pyro.

It’s an artificial-intelligence DJ in an app, promising that it “seamlessly mixes your music and never skips a beat”.

The app draws songs from those stored on a user’s device, but they can also sign in to Spotify Premium to get music from there. Pyro can mix the playlists a user has already created, or they can just choose one song to have it pick the rest of the setlist.
