Artists Compensated via Embeddable Music Player

beatportBeatport, an SFX Entertainment company and the home of electronic music for over a decade, has introduced an embeddable music player that allows any blog, website or social channel to stream any track from the Beatport service knowing that artists and rights-holders will receive compensation for each stream.

"Supporting artists has been a core value at Beatport since day one, and that mission remains as we expand to serving fans with our new streaming service," said Beatport Executive Creative Director Clark Warner. "Our embeddable streaming music player not only helps artists promote their music by making it available wherever their fans live online, but we are also taking the necessary steps to pay rights-holders for each listen so artists get paid."

Every track on Beatport.com includes the embed code alongside the icons for sharing to social media, hearting or buying it. With the embeddable player, artists, music blogs, festival organizers and fans can embed any track in the Beatport streaming service into their respective websites, social feeds and other sources. Additionally, Beatport users can simply share any Beatport track from the embeddable players directly into a Tweet to share with their followers.

Now, a festival organizer can easily embed on their website the top tracks of artists scheduled to perform, a music blog can embed Beatport's top 10 Pulse Chart tracks or new releases and an artist can Tweet a newly released track directly to fans and know that not only are they promoting the music for free, but the value of that music is being respected and paid for.
