Spotify are ending their support for third-party DJ apps

DJs only have a few months left to use Spotify’s music library in their favourite DJing apps. 

Spotify have announced the sad news that they’ll no longer be available in DJ software. The partnership opened up their library of tens-of-millions of tracks for DJs to splice into their mixes and scratch with on third-party software.

Spotify haven’t revealed quite why, but they are ending their partnership with DJ apps and software like Djay on July 1st. It could well be due to Spotify’s new licensing deals with major labels that they’ve signed recently, which might not cover the use of music in third-party apps anymore.

SoundCloud on the other hand have spent the last year partnering with as many DJing apps as they can. When Algoriddim announced that SoundCloud music could be accessed through their Djay app, as well as Tidal’s library, in January they removed Spotify from their website.

So it seems as though they knew it was coming, but now it’s official and will apply to all third-party DJ apps. Algoriddim are providing guides on their website for how to migrate their mixing library from Spotify to SoundCloud or Tidal to help the transition for DJs and users of their DJing app.
