The Beatport Play platform provides remix competitions for DJs and producers.
Beatport Play is a product of the the popular digital music distributor. It allows DJs and producers to download the stems of hit songs, remix them, and then compete for an official release of their work. Today, Beatport Play launches competitions around songs by Björk (‘Mutual Core’), Todd Terry (‘Samba’), Sasse (‘Treat Me’), and John Davis & The Monster Orchestra (‘Ain’t That Enough’). Winners will be announced on September 19.
This is not the first time Beatport has experimented with new digital products. Earlier this summer, Beatport launched Mixes, which allows DJs to sell their mixes legally, while compensating the original performers and labels.
