We are now pleased to announce the return of DeeJayPortal, and our plan is to rebuild our website bigger and better than ever before. At our height back in 20015 we had more than 160,000 members. We would love to welcome each and every one of them back, and hopefully add to our numbers from the next generation of DJs, producers and music lovers. Whether you are a seasoned pro, or a amateur bedroom DJ, producer, singer or vocalist everyone is welcome to join.
It has been almost eight years since the DJP website was seized and taken offline by the PRS & IPCU for copyright infringement. This was due to us hosting and making available audio files for free download, namely acapellas. At that time we didn't think we were doing anything wrong or breaching any laws, but sadly we were wrong. We made these files available to download, for the sole purpose of remixing and production, and made it clear that anyone using them would need to seek usage rights from the original author before releasing any work created from them. However, the powers that be deemed this was not good enough, and promptly shut us down.
This time we will be doing things a little bit differently. You will still get the same great content by way of blog posts, tutorials, reviews, recommendations, discussion boards and a first rate community experience. However our download, upload section will no longer contain any content that may infringe upon anyone's copyrights. All published downloads will be open source, and royalty free. We don't fancy going through another legal battle.
Our community section has had a vast overhaul, it is now new and improved, and we have added many more features. You can now create your own fan pages, and groups, start events, buy and sell equipment in our marketplace, to name just a few of our improvements, and we will continue to build on this.
We are sorry it has taken us so long to get DJP back up and running, we have received a lot of messages asking us when we will be back, and we have tried to reply to as many as we can, but we can now safely say...
"welcome back to the number one DJ & Producer community"
