TIDAL’s new streaming service update has refreshed its DJ-related content for playlist creation and enhancement.
Specialized genre playlists from across the app’s library are co-curated by TIDAL’s editorial team as well as various guest artists and DJs. The update also includes BPM-specific playlists and instrumentals, acapellas, and other toolkits for DJs of all skill levels.
The update to its DJ content is a result of Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey recently acquiring a majority ownership stake in TIDAL. The high-fidelity music streaming platform’s original artist co-owners will be the second largest group of shareholders in the company.
Recording artist Jay-Z – the original buyer of TIDAL in 2015 – is also joining Square’s board of directors.
This decision, according to Dorsey, is to “[find] new ways for artists to support their work.”
Square is acquiring a majority ownership stake in TIDAL through a new joint venture, with the original artists becoming the second largest group of shareholders, and JAY-Z joining the Square board. Why would a music streaming company and a financial services company join forces?!
