is gear another streaming app. Breaks my hart I have been a huge fan of spotify from day 1 . But if i can Dj with my paid for spotify music I will have to buy my music else where. for the fists time in years I am look for a new music service. Is their a copy right reason for the change. I would gladly pay more for a pro DJ license to fulfill extra fees for Artists to get payed more for the music I use.
In fairness, as far as I remember Spotify was quite clear that even with djay pro, public use of Spotify on djay pro was still prohibited where as from what I can see with tidal, the responsibility lies with the venue holder to have the correct public performance licenses (PRS PPL in the uk for example) Perhaps Spotify were getting miffed that algoriddim weren’t hot on stopping people from publicly using Spotify to DJ.
Ah well, it still works at least for now - which is kind of annoying as I don’t know if I should cancel my tidal subscription (I hate that it has no public playlists, and no auto analyse feature) or continue to bin off Spotify as a matter of principal I guess only time will tell
Well I would say that DJ Pro users are more likely to refer their friends than standard users. We’re paying free advertisers for the Spotify service since when any of my friends have seen what I do to decompress they go wait, how did you do that? If they didn’t have a premium subscription before it’s 80% more likely they will/would. Tidal has got a bit of a challenge ahead of it.
Tonight I was at the beach DJing /w DJPro / Spotify with my family, and the neighbours put their thumbs up and said turn it up! I got up, walked over a spare UE Hyperboom and joined them into the party. It was fantastic, they txted me requests it was nice to see everyone happy. That’s because DJ and Spotify still work.
Thanks Spotify for giving me and my family these moments of joy! 😉
Imagine Apple turning back on Photographs or Musicians community... Spotify, do you realize what you are doing and the effect on your brand regarding the long term period ? I am nearly sure that the person that tool this decision won’t be there in 5 or 3 years. May be less. Please don’t give up on DJs. Have you not DJs in your employees ? Aren’t they mad about this ? Please DJs, amplify the pressure on Spotify. Spotify certainly underestimates DJs communities and their influence. pressuring Spotify.
