Spotify boosts its dance music cred with a Beatport deal
The Spotify pact is arguably the biggest yet for Beatport, which is trying to expand beyond its one-stop shop reputation to create a whole distribution network. It’s also important for Spotify, which could use Beatport as a counter to Apple Music’s discovery features. The Apple service already has both legions of its own electronic music playlists as well as curators like DJ Mag — this wouldn’t be a direct equivalent, but it would give you an incentive to come back and explore music you otherwise wouldn’t have heard.
