Is there a Streaming track service specifically for DJs?

I have been an hobbyist DJ for about 6 years now. I use M-Audio's Torq system, and I have really enjoyed it. Being able to DJ with MP3s has really revolutionized the popularity and ease of mobile DJing (and saved a few DJs backs as well... CDs and Vinyl are heavy!)
I was just wondering, is there a service that is taking the next logical step? Does a streaming music service for use by DJs in the booth exist? Essentially what I am thinking of is a Spotify-like interface, but with the ability to mix those streamed songs using a tools of their choice. I know that beatport allows downloads on the fly, but I was thinking more of a subscription service.
If this doesn't exist, is someone working on it? It seems like a good (yet possibly very expensive) service that DJs would use.
In addition to answers, any additions or thoughts are more than welcome.
