Popular online music plaform ‘Spotify‘ has helped disc jockeys #s in a major way!!
Previously when DJs would remix someones song, the original version would get the stream credit and not the remix version. Spotify made it to where the streams NOW count towards the remixer’s total as well.
Also in accord with that change, the remixes will not only appear on the original artist page but will appear on the DJ’s profile who created the remix, right under the “latest release” and “popular” section, instead of it being placed on the bottom of the original artists profile under the “appears on” section.
Disc Jockeys “DJs” continue to play a prominent role in breaking new music or just music that just hasn’t stolen the listeners ears quite yet. We have DJs such as Skrillex who has over 25 million streams off Kendrick Lamar‘s hit smash ‘HUMBLE‘, like he needed any help LOL.
