December 20, 2012
Syntax’s expansive catalog now available to a new subscription-based music provider
Rocking the party just got easier for DJs and music lovers. Pulselocker, the digital music service provider, inked a deal with Syntax Distribution to feature it’s expansive music catalog. Songs by Syntax labels and artists are now available to the subscribers of Pulselocker who can stream and purchase music to use with their DJ software. “I love the thriving digital space,” says Syntax CEO Timothy J. Trudeau. “It’s constantly full of innovative new ideas.”
Trudeau applauds Pulselocker’s ingenuity in finding a solution to online music piracy by providing a service that allows DJs to preview songs in their entirety before purchasing them for use. He notes, “In the same way that Spotify found a way to monetize the music pirate, Pulselocker has found a way to monetize the DJ. Pulselocker has a few different and affordable options for a DJ to legally use the music, which is a good thing because we want DJs to have access, since they play a vital role in marketing music to the average consumer.”
With this new partnership, Pulselocker DJs have access to Syntax’s diversity of artists and talent. Alvaro Velilla, CEO and co-founder of Pulselocker says, “The addition of Syntax’s top-notch independent catalog enables Pulselocker to offer an even stronger selection of music to our enthusiastic community of next generation DJs and music aficionados. This partnership bolsters Pulselocker’s mission of providing unmatched access to music through its subscription-based service, which allows users to DJ any track from Pulselocker’s catalog on the most popular mixing applications.”
