The BPM Supreme app for iOS and Android lets DJs browse the company’s extensive music and video library whenever, wherever. The ability to stream and save tracks for future download is sure to be a helpful tool for DJs on the go, and the curated sets are sure to inspire DJs to discover both new and old tracks to enhance their own sets. Recommended, especially if you’re a BPM Supreme subscriber.
First Impressions / Setting up
The BPM Supreme app aims to offer DJs a new and intuitive way to discover music to add to their sets. We tested a prerelease version of the app so the way I installed and set it up was a bit different to how it is done now that the app is released, but basically you head off to the App Store if you’re on iPhone or Google Play if you’re on Android, and grab it just as you would any other app.
Even the free version (see below) has no adverts although it does have a limited feature set, but once you’re logged in to your paid account you can unlock the full software.
There are several options to start finding music. Sections for top downloads and new releases are first, followed by exclusive edits and remixes, and finally Curated Sets that feature hand-picked tracks by the record pool staff. You can also browse through genres and decades, search for tracks by title or artist, and filter the results to show only the versions of tracks that you need, such as radio-friendly clean edits.
The interface is clean and responsive, and like the record pool website, all the elements of the app are well-organised and thought out. Tracks can be added to your crate for later downloading on a computer, or they can be added to a personalised playlist within the app for streaming. Current playing tracks are controlled within the full screen player, and you can minimise the player to continue browsing while the track continues to play in the background.
Apart from access to the record pool’s extensive collection of music and videos, the app also delivers the latest DJ industry news from product announcements to tips and tricks articles from fellow DJs. Finally, there is also access to the merch store, and a list of tracks currently trending on radio.
The mobile app for BPM Supreme looks to be an excellent companion for DJs who already enjoy the web version of the record pool. The ability to stream and save tracks for future download is sure to be a helpful tool for DJs on the go, and the curated sets are sure to inspire DJs to discover both new and old tracks to enhance their own sets.
Although the app is clearly intended for DJ use, a free version is available for non-members of the record pool. This version gives access to browse and preview tracks, discover exclusive remixes and edits, and keep up with what’s happening in DJ news and culture. All of this is offered with no ads or interruptions while browsing or listening. If you are a BPM Supreme user and would like access to the library wherever you are, it’s a no-brainer.
