[All Platforms] DJ Version of Spotify

I'm a DJ. I want a DJ interface for Spotify, where I can play two tracks at once over the top of each other. 

 

It doesn't have to be anything complex -- just two tracks and a crossfader would do the job. But if you fancy adding things like waveforms, pitch-shifting, and other functionality, that would be lovely too.

Hey folks,



 

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!



 

After speaking to the right teams, we're keeping this idea as 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

 

As flagged in the last status update, our friends at Algoriddim have an app called djay that allows you to mix tracks using Spotify. You can check out details about djay here.

 

If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.

 



Thanks.

I would love for this feature to come. The only issue is that djay and other virtual DJ apps have or may have recording features on them, so you could use it to get a hold of any app on Spotify. Maybe if Spotify worked with these developers so that the record feature would only work if the songs playing weren't from Spotify. Otherwise, you could just play a song and hit record and then bam!, you now have your own pirated song.

I have 2 sets of music. 1 here on Spotify and one normal mp3s. I am fed up of my old mp3 collection and want to use my spotify tunes to dj with but like you all there is still no way to spotify dj or even let us use the spotify tracks in a programme like virtual dj. If they would do this and let us pre fade the next track I could delete my old mp3 collection and just use spotify as its amazing.

Hello,

 

I made an error when trying to clean up the threads in the Idea's exchange, and accidentally merged this thread into one relating to a Samsung Smart TV application. I managed to seperate the two, and move the comments back over that seemed relevant. However, in doing so, it lost the kudos this thread had. If you still like this idea, please take a couple of seconds out to hit the Kudos button next to the idea. 

 

Again, apologies for my error. I'll force myself to listen to Ultimate Careless Whisper to repent.

Lots of songs have annoying intros and/or outros which aren't music (movie quotes, white noise, silence...), and I'd love to be able to trim them out. Users should be able to edit the starting point and ending point of songs in their playlists.

This is quite similar to some of the DJ functionality that people have requested, so I've added this to that thread for now.

Hi,

habe noch einmal eine Idee, die umzusetzen vielleicht etwas umständlich wäre.

Wäre auf jeden Fall etwas für den Premium Account.

Und zwar bietet ihr ja "Radios" an, mit denen man 
dann bestimmte Genre hören kann.

Meiner Meinung nach wäre es sehr sinnvoll, dass man selbst mit Spotify auch Musik auflegen könnte. Also das sich jemand mit einem Premiumaccount einloggt, und dann sozusagen DJ spielen kann. Man kann also die Musik die man in einer Playlist hat abspielen, wenn man erfahrener ist auch mit Hardware richtig auflegen und jeder könnte zuhören.

Das wäre etwas für Anfänger, die DJ werden wollen, aber auch für welche die
bereits DJ-Hardware haben und sich damit auskennen, so dass man den Hörern noch mehr Möglichkeiten bieten könnte.
Ich kenne mich da im Wirtschaftlichen Part nicht so gut aus, vielleicht wäre eine Kooperation mit Anbietern für DJ-Software (z.B.: Native Instruments) möglich.

Als Tester würde ich mich auch anbieten, da weiß ich aber nicht wie das bei euch abläuft, und ob diese Idee für euch überhaupt umsetzbar bzw. rentabel ist.

 

Edit: Diese Idee wurde auch bereits an den Support geschickt und eine Antwort wurde erhalten.

Hi,

I have even an idea, perhaps a bit cumbersome to implement would be.

Would definitely be something for the premium account.

And yes indeed it offers "radio", with which one
then you can listen to certain genres.

In my opinion it would be very useful, you could even hang with Spotify and music. So the logs someone with a premium account, so to speak, and can play DJ. You can work your music you have in a playlist to play, if you hang up with an experienced hardware correctly and everyone could hear.

That would be something for beginners who want to become a DJ, but also for which the
already have DJ hardware and so familiar, so that you could offer to the listeners even more options.
I know because in the economic part is not so good, perhaps, would be a collaboration with DJ software providers (such as Native Instruments) possible.

As a tester, I would offer, because I do not like the runs at you, and if this idea for you is even feasible or profitable.

Edit: This idea has also been sent to the support and a response was received.

I'd definitely pay a higher price than Spotify Premium for a 'Spotify DJ' package if it was done in collaboration with a decent software such as Serato or Traktor
