It would be nice to get all the top 40 pop tracks out of the progressive house genre.

    Create a separate 'Melbourne Bounce' Genre so we can get Minimal back.
    Create a EDM section to clean up Progressive House & Electro House.
    Separate Hardcore/Hard Techno.
    Create a Trap Genre section.

    Well you have an electro subgenre under the breaks tab now but you still apparently have no clue what electro is. Who do you have working over there? Either get it right or no one is going to use Beatport.

    electro house should be split into bassline house or fidgit and edm which are both mixed up in this genre i cant handle going through all this rubbish edm pop to find some real underground music ! dont have this problem in the techno and minimal sections ! also real electro has nothing to do with either of these for some reason i see this in electronica ummmmmmm !

    Please separate progressive house from big-room, you already have 2 charts, "Must Hear EDM" and "Must Hear Progressive", would be fantastic to just have them as different genres!

    Beatport really need to stop listing Electro as Electro House as Electro House is not Electro & does not sound like Electro

    Proper Electro didn't spawn electro house. Electroclash and micro house had drunk sex one night.

    Having been a Beatport customer for many years this has been a frustration for quite sometime. The audience for authentic Electro is different to the audience for Electro House and Breaks. Admittedly there are some people who like of course. But this thread has made me realise this is key reason why my spend with Beatport has decreased over the years (check my account Beatport). Online shopping is more than ever about convenience, not sifting through stuff we don't have an interest in. More than that though, true underground music lovers like to feel they are spending money with a company that also appreciates the identity people give to music and the affinity they feel with it. This is a great idea and long over due.

    It is insane to have to listen to so many breaks tracks to gind electro. I feel like it is limiting the amount of electro artist thst are unknown to me and I feel like it is limiting the variety of music we hear. I keep hearing and purchasing music that I already know and have heard.

    Electro is a root genre and one of the oldest forms of electronic music. Cybotron "Clear" and Afrika Bambaataa "Planet Rock" are classic electro tunes and obviously have no house elements correct? It spawned subgenres such as electro breaks, electro bass, electro techno and yes electro house. These styles are ALL completely different and should be treated as such.

    It would be nice to get all the electro tracks out of the minimal genre, half in the top 100 should not be there

    Separate big-room progressive house (electro) from melodic progressive house. IE separate Alesso and Hardwell from Shingo Nakamura and Luigi Luisini.

    The only sub-genre for Tech-house is Acid and Acid (two times). Please add more sub-genres like Deep, Melodic, Dub and Uplifting like is done for Techno
