The new pay-per-view site is the brainchild of The Advent and Dave Bate
The Advent have teamed up with Portland-based DJ, producer, label owner and record dealer Dave Bate to launch Techno-Club.net, a new pay-per-view streaming service designed specifically to host DJ sets.
Techno-Club.net aims to avoid the copyright infringement issues that have affected DJs' live streams on Facebook and other social media platforms, by ensuring that full playlists for every set are submitted to performing rights societies, with artists getting a cut of the money the site makes from viewing fees. Those fees start as low as €5 (£4.60 approx) for five hours' viewing, and rise to €20 (£17.60 approx) for 20 hours.
The DJs who provide the actual mixes will also be paid, based on how many minutes' viewing their streams have clocked up. And, just like a real nightclub, there'll be mix of resident DJs and one-off guests.
Techno-Club.net will broadcast live every weekend, starting at 9pm on Friday and finishing at midnight on Sunday, with a music policy that (despite the site name) embraces "house, techno and electro". All streams will then remain online until the following weekend, giving viewers a chance to catch up on anything they've missed and use up any leftover viewing credits.
The schedule for their first weekend is as follows:
