While artists like Skrillex, Deadmau5, Bassnectar and David Guetta, have attracted the lion’s share of attention by mainstream audiences, the underground music scene is as strong as ever. Although the space has evolved, the model for buying tracks has not.

Pulselocker is the first music subscription service that gives DJs access to millions of tracks, playable on the most popular mixing apps, online or off. Their unique subscription service gives DJs the unprecedented freedom to stream full-length tracks, download songs and DJ them out – before they decide to buy, and buy only the ones they want to keep.
