After surveying thousands of DJs, talking with hundreds of them directly, and getting feedback from dozens of industry members, the consensus is clear: Readers and advertisers alike want to see Mobile Beat published more often, be more easily accessible, and feature more up-to-the-minute content.
In response, we are recreating Mobile Beat as a Pure Digital Monthly for DJs. The digital magazine will continue to integrate the classic magazine-style experience, featuring in-depth articles and rich graphic design, with the constantly updated, blog-style online feed, featuring breaking DJ news and other quick-reading content.
In addition to reading Mobile Beat on the desktop through MobileBeat.Com, and getting essential info in Apple News, readers will enjoy using our new, user-friendly app to read the digital edition every month. The new app also provides easy access to a DJ Feed that is updated daily with new material, as well as connections to social media and more.
Staying firmly in touch with our print magazine roots, Mobile Beat will still bring readers the high-quality content they have come to expect during the magazine’s first 25 years. Facebook, YouTube and other social media have their place, but nothing can touch what Mobile Beat will continue to publish.
As we approach the 25th anniversary of the first issue of Mobile Beat, we will be printing the January, March, and May issues, with a special celebration of 25 years of DJ history in May. Then the Pure Digital Monthly begins in June.
Plan now to be part of this exciting next generation of Mobile Beat Magazine!
