Beatport Link is the music streaming arm of Beatport, offering practically the whole of the Beatport catalogue for streaming within compatible DJ software without purchase – and the company has just announced two changes for its subscribers.

Firstly, you can now listen to full tracks within the Beatport store – as long as you are a Beatport Link subscriber. This removes a bugbear with online stores in general, and is a much-requested feature, allowing DJs to properly listen to song before adding to their streaming playlists or, indeed, buying.

Beatport has also dropped by 25% the – admittedly previously astronomical – prices of the two higher tiers of Beatport Link: Link Pro is now $30/month, and Link Pro+ is $45 a month, with 50 and 100 track offline lockers respectively.

The basic Link subscription (lower quality audio, no offline locker) is unchanged at $15/month.

Beatport Link is currently available in Pioneer Rekordbox, Algoriddim Djay/Djay Pro, Hercules DJUCED and Virtual DJ, with Denon Engine OS coming soon.
