Traxsource is one of the leading online music stores for DJs. It holds its lofty position primarily because the site has always focused on quality underground house music. The company run by DJs, for DJs, has launched a rebranded version of its website with improved functionality and brand new features including Dropbox integration and a more responsive design. It’s always tricky to upgrade a successful website and judging by the positive comments from the DJ community, Traxsource has done a good job here.
First Impressions / Setting up
What’s immediately apparent is a bolder, more in your face modern feel. A heavily requested update by users was the extra real estate dedicated to the “DJ Charts”, on the home page. You’ll now find these front and centre, allowing you to listen to your favourite artists’ top-rated selections in seconds. Aesthetically it looks great and site now has one uniform design for all devices, so you can easily navigate the deepest features of the site on your laptop, phone (iOS and Android) or tablet.
The new site retains the heart and soul of Traxsource and the website is now much more responsive and easier to navigate. The site’s most impressive upgrade is the way Dropbox has been integrated into the downloads process. This makes managing music on multiple devices simple and seamless. All you need to do is click the “Send to Dropbox” button in your downloads folder to make purchases from any device automatically appear on your local machine. So wherever you are, you can get your hands on any tunes you need at the click of a button.
The new site also comes with a nice user interface makeover for “My Traxsource” which provides improved access to Artists, Labels and Charts.
Overall, the site revamp looks great and has given users what they have been asking for, with further enhancements to the site promised over the coming months. It’s always tricky to upgrade a successful website; will people be annoyed with the new layout and ditch the site, or will it be welcomed with open arms?
Judging by the overall look and the positive comments from the DJ community, Traxsource looks to have done a good job here.
