With ITunes gone, how does that affect DJs?
Instead of the iTunes application, Apple has decided to curate three separate apps - Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV.
According to MixMag’s Devyn White: “Apple Music fails to incorporate XML file support, an organizational component, which originally made it simple for DJs to transfer data from iTunes to applications such as Rekordbox and Traktor.”
Without this file support, tracks won't automatically stay organized in set playlists when imported into these applications.
Serato and Traktor are already releasing beta versions of software to deal with this, no word yet from Rekordbox.
Alec went to see Bijou at Audio; caught up with one of the openers - SF local, DJ BAKR (pronounced “Baker”) and his G-Code squad.
