Munich, 30 January, 2020 – Algoriddim announced today a free major update to djay, its multi Apple Design Award-winning music app, integrating both SoundCloud and TIDAL across its mobile and desktop applications. The partnerships enable Algoriddim to take streaming in DJ software to an unprecedented level, introducing live video mixing through TIDAL, access to SoundCloud’s one-of-a-kind catalogue, and powerful song recommendations for both audio and video content, in one of its most significant feature updates to date.
The latest update to djay seamlessly connects to SoundCloud, enabling creators to instantly stream and mix more than 200 million tracks using a SoundCloud Go+ premium consumer subscription. In addition, djay’s innovative Match feature has been extended to SoundCloud’s music catalogue, providing powerful song recommendations to help users find the perfect next track for their queue.
To celebrate the launch and make it easier than ever to get started with DJing, Algoriddim and SoundCloud are offering access to a selection of featured tracks for free in the latest djay app, with no login required. The curated playlists feature emerging artists across a variety of genres including hip-hop, house, tech house, festival EDM, trap and dubstep. djay’s iOS app is already free to download, and by providing immediately available songs from launch, Algoriddim has made another significant step in making DJing a more accessible artform than ever before.
DJ’s can now utilise TIDAL’s HiFi sound and exclusive content with its comprehensive djay integration. djay Pro users are also able to seamlessly stream TIDAL’s unique catalogue of music videos and audio tracks, enabling users to mix videos and songs in real-time – something unprecedented on a mobile device. This pioneering feature opens up a new chapter for DJs and VJs, providing unlimited possibilities for video output, allowing users to mix between music videos the same way they would between songs. Djay users will also be able to receive an upcoming free three-month TIDAL trial, which will be available to redeem within Algoriddim’s apps.
Djay is also extending its innovative Automix feature to TIDAL’s music video library, utilising its innovative AI technology to enable users to lean back and enjoy a perfectly mixed playlist with no need for manual intervention. djay’s Match feature will similarly encompass both TIDAL’s music and video catalogues, suggesting compatible music or videos during a mix.
TIDAL’s seamless synchronization allows users to discover new tracks and videos through TIDAL’s unique collections – including Top Tracks, Rising, Featured, and Genre – and instantly add these into their mix, whilst also being able to add songs or videos to their TIDAL favorites while mixing in djay. Ultra-low latency for both audio and video tracks, advanced effects, on-the-fly analysis, and TIDAL’s renowned high fidelity sound quality provide a first-of-its-kind mixing experience.
“The integration of music video streaming through TIDAL and free to access hand-curated content from SoundCloud is unprecedented and continues to push the boundaries of streaming and DJ technology. By providing DJ friendly songs when you launch the app, we are not just providing users the tools to DJ, we are giving them the perfect tracks to start mixing right away,” says Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim.
