Check out this Kelly Clarkson Remix I did with my good friend DJ Reidiculous. Stay tuned for more collabos with Reidiculous.
Check out the video and my review on Serato 2.0 Public Beta v. 1
In this video I mainly highlight the Export to Serato Playlist function. You will see how I can now Export my DJ Set/Playlist and upload it to my Serato.com profile. By doing so, I now have the ability to view my playlist online and let other Serato DJs view my playlists if I should make them Public. One of the things I forgot to mention in the video is that there is also a LIVE Upload setting that you can turn on and as long as the venue you are at has Wifi. What does this mean? Basically you can upload your playlist in REAL-Time to your Serato.com profile.
The other thing I didn’t mention in the video is that when you upload your DJ set/playlist you can Hide certain tracks and edit the songs as well (especially for those that don’t have their MP3s properly labeled or tagged). So if you have an exclusive track that you don’t want to show or make public you can hide it by editing it on your profile page.
What does this mean? First, Serato appears to be a social networking site among its users to be able to share information back and forth. Think of it as Facebook for Serato Users as you will. I can request to follow certain DJs and if they allow me access to their Public playlists, I can then see what they are playing in their sets and vice versa. I can even send other Serato DJs messages and receive messages as well.
Second, I’m guessing Serato can probably now come up with an accurate Top Club DJ List. I’m sure they will separate the lists many ways. They can have a Top Hip-Hop list, Top Radio Mixshow list, Top Mainstream Club List, Top Electro List, and on and on. They can even do a Top regions list – USA, Europe, Asia, or East Coast, West Coast, Dirty South list. It’s pretty much up to them how they want to do it but now it can be done.
Now just so you know, as a Serato DJ, you don’t HAVE to Participate. You don’t have to Export your playlists to Serato or to your profile if you don’t want to. However, what better way to network and market yourself than to do it?
This will definitely help out Record Labels because now, they can see what us DJ’s are really playing and what remixes we use. They can use that information to determine on who to hire for their next project. Artists will be able to see when and where their music is being played and by who. DJ’s have yet another tool to help them market, promote, themselves as well as educate other DJs.
