the new flyer for the Afterhours EOYC2017 has now been launched and I am really excited to let you know I have a TWO HOUR slot. You can catch my mix on December 31st from 13:00 CET but… the music all starts from December 19th so get tuned in from then and join in the party.
Beatport has been evolving quietly in the background, but now the secret is out. They now have a full music streaming service. There is no cost, and you can stream as much music as you want on your mobile device or desktop computer.
Artists/DJ’s can also create playlists and upload mixes for you to stream.
I have made a playlist of all my tracks on Beatport as well as my latest podcasts from Afterhours.FM which you can stream for free by clicking the image below.
Below is a brief overview from the official Beatport website.
“Beatport offers fans the ability to discover and enjoy the music they love, wherever they are through custom mobile apps, while providing DJs, artists, and labels a powerful platform to grow their audience and connect with fans.
Listen to millions of free tracks, albums, and mixes, organized by expert curators to reflect what’s new, what’s hot, and what’s next.
“Heart” their favorite tracks to watch them rise up the Pulse Chart in real time.
Stream playlists made by their favorite artists, or create their own.
Watch live and recorded streams of DJs performing at festivals and venues worldwide virtually every day on the Beatport Live video streaming platform, broadcast in high-quality audio and HD video, along with aggregated social activity from Twitter and Instagram.
DJs and producers, as well as labels or event promoters, can:
Upload and share tracks and mixes with the world’s largest electronic music community, designating tracks for either streaming or purchase or both, create playlists, and much more.
Create and manage profiles to engage fans both new and returning, complete with top tracks, customized bios and images, upcoming performances, and other useful information.
Share music across the Web through a custom embeddable player that compensates for every stream. “
You know you’ve made it as a dj/producer when….you are featured on the front cover of a prestigious music magazine, and to top it off..it has the approval from international super-star DJ and cake throwing legend Steve Aoki
OK…I’ll come clean..the picture is a fake and was created using the free service at PicJoke but thought it was too good not to share it.
Back to serious business… you can now listen to my mix from TrancefamilyUAE birthday celebrations on my mixcloud page.
I am also currently testing out a new service for djs/producers at http://www.hearthis.at/sonarzone if you have a spare minute please go and check it out. I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
So far testing with the site is going well and I personally think this is a great contender to be a soundcloud replacement.
I am also on instagram so please follow me there for lots of interesting photos 🙂
That’s all for this week, hope you all have a great weekend.
