There are a ton of ways creators can stream Hype Tracks. Users can listen on a Spotify playlist, find a 24/7 live stream on Twitch and YouTube and even download the playlists. Streamers can now easily throw up music in the background of their live content without worry. In addition to StreamBeats' regular playlists, gamers now listen to new sounds from 100 Thieves themselves.
StreamBeats founder Harris Heller involved in Hype Tracks
StreamBeats founder Harris Heller took to Twitter to break the 100 Thieves news, getting massive hype from creators. Alongside the new playlist, Heller and StreamBeats have already dropped over ten playlists on Spotify including drum and bass, dubstep, along with ambient and more. In addition, you can also find Christmas music.
The news is a huge win for content creators who have been walking on eggshells with music for too long. Earlier this year Twitch sent an email saying creators should expect another strike soon. “We recently received a batch of DMCA takedown notifications", Twitch said, "with about 1,000 individual claims from music publishers."
This is especially bad for the streamers who rely on VODs for content. Obviously this was a serious issue, even for large orgs. 100 Thieves' President also tweeted how excited he is to solve this problem. Nevertheless, streamers can now continue to create the content they want with even more variety.
