If you’re an independent DJ or music producer, this is great news.
The Brazilian startup Beatsong wants to transform the way people buy and consume music digitally. To do this, it has created a new streaming platform with an integrated marketplace, where you can not only listen to music, but upload your own tracks and make them available at the price you want, without any major difficulties or investments.
In practice, it would be like combining Spotify‘s best features with Bandcamp‘s purchasing system… but that’s not all. The big difference is the gamification system, where users of the platform will be rewarded when browsing Beatsong, accumulating points/benefits that can be used to invest in their own project within the platform, such as ads, for example.
Each small action (such as listening to a track, commenting, creating a playlist, buying a track, etc.) will have a different weight and bonus, encouraging users to do everything in one place, consequently feeding an ecosystem that helps each other. To have access to all the features, you’ll need to use the DJ PRO subscription, which will cost R$9.90/month, or around $2/month.
The project was conceived by Lucas Caixeta aka Lucke, who has been in the electronic music business for over 10 years, together with Valdir de Jesus Correia Junior, the brilliant mind behind the platform’s back-end. To promote the official launch, Lucke was at the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) presenting all of Beatsong’s features and differentials.
«We attended ADE to look for new trends to improve our tool even further. We took the opportunity to connect with other developers, artists and electronic music enthusiasts, exchanging ideas and experiences that will certainly contribute to the growth and evolution of our tool.
We’re excited about the future and look forward to sharing the new features we’re developing based on what we learned at ADE», shares Luke.
*At the moment, Beatsong is only available for the browser, but very soon it will also be available for Android and iOS.
