Spotify set to withdraw support for DJ controllers. Here’s how you can keep streaming…
The music platform will no longer allow you to stream via controllers or DJ software, but there are alternative streaming solutions available. Plus: a note on Juno shipping as normal.

Users of Pioneer controllers and other previously compatible equipment will no longer be able to stream music from Spotify from July 1st, as the streaming giant withdrew support for DJ software.
Popular controllers such as the Pioneer DDJ-400 and Reloop Beatpad 2 offered real-time Spotify streaming services via apps like Algoriddim Djay, Serato Pyro and Pacemaker, allowing users to mix tracks from the platform’s extensive catalogue of music.
The good news is that DJing with music from streaming platforms will still be possible, just not from Spotify. Tidal and SoundCloud both allow you to stream music directly through compatible DJ controllers and software.
