  1. I miss the genres section

    I like to explore new music within specific genres which works pretty good in the old Beatport and Beatport Pro.
    Definitely a feature that I miss!

    Despite that, there is a lot of music missing but i guess its all still developing :)

  4. Merge www.beatport.com & pro.beatport.com

    Why are there 2 different places to listen to music?

    It seems very clear to me that www.beatport.com has been created to create a streaming service for people to listen to music, competing with some of the other players like rdio, grooveshark, pandora, etc. while utilizing the great distributers that pro.beatport.com already uses.

    This is a fantastic idea! I like it a lot!

    BUT!

    When a distributor submits music to be sold on pro.beatport.com they submit the Full song file and then from it a sample is created for the potential buyer to "preview" the music.

    (speculation) It seems ridiculous…

  5. Genre - Electro Breaks is not Electro House.

    Have another category besides Electro House.

    Electro Breaks is not Electro House or Electro both types of genre are completely different.

  6. Where is "My Beatport" ??

    In the new service, I'd like to be able to see all the artists and labels I've previously followed on Beatport. Is this option / section hidden somewhere I haven't found yet?

  7. Not seeing an easy way to queue up another song while currently listening to a song.

    I should be able to just click a plus button, or right click and select the option to queue up the next track I want to listen to.

  8. Add to Cart/Add to Hold Bin Buttons

    Instead of the "Buy on Beatport Pro" button, which opens a whole new tab, it would be cool if there were "Add to Cart" and "Add to Hold Bin" buttons for each track, then those were simply linked to your Pro account. That way if you find a track you like you can add it right away to purchase later instead of opening up another window.

  9. It should partially preload the next song in the queue.

    It should automatically preload the next song so you don't have to wait in between songs.

  10. I personally prefer full albums. Unfortunately search is only possible on artist and tracks.

    Search for full albums would be appreciated in addition to search track or artists. Also album charts would be great. I personally do not search for best tracks subgenres, I want to learn to know new music and artists also from genres I did not listen to before. Therfore a "best seller album chart" per week, month, quarter, year would definetly kickbmy putches at beatport from 1 to 10 albums oer month..

  11. How about something like a surprise me button?

    I think Beatport should have a button that when clicked, it will randomly play a song. This could introduce you to a new genre and expand your musical taste. I personally think that would be really cool thing to have as an option of music discovery.

  12. Every song is downloadable as a .m4a song

    Not sure if this was intended, but by inspecting network activity in your browser and start playing a song you get the request link to the song, and are free to download it. This could get abused.

  13. It should have something like BeatBot

    When I search a track and play it, it adds similar tracks to my playlist, but those tracks are usually a remix of the same song or other tracks from the same artists. So, I'd suggest to make playlists a little bit smarter by adding similar tracks but not from the same artists. Maybe you could use the same algorithm used in BeatBot and add the suggested tracks to my queue.

  14. Absolutely great, but...

    there are not all Record Labels.
    It could be give a better search function. It's difficult to search the Artists. They have no profile photo

  15. Need a timeline

    First off all would love to say great beta, it was everything I could have hoped for coming to mobile phone usage. I always used to use sound cloud on my phone but I'm sure this will overtake due to the wider range of decent music. Only thing that could top this off is if there were a timeline section, where I could see anynew music added by artists I liked! Also the ability to make playlists wouldn't go a miss!!

  17. Have Labels sorted with the option of Releases (Eps) and Tracks.

    It would be great to be able to "add to queue" or play certain releases (Eps) from labels. For instance, if one wanted to listen to an old release (an EP) then one could look at the release history to find it, instead of loading all of the tracks from the specific label.

  18. Load pre-cropped images

    All of the images you're loading are HUGE! 2673x1818 pixels just for a thumbnail?

    That's making page loads really slow. 20 seconds on a 25Mbps connection! 4.8MB total for e.g. https://www.beatport.com/nickwarren

    Recommend resizing the images server-side before sending to the client.

  19. Lets have a clear difference from Beatport & Beatport Pro

    If Beatport.com wants to become a streaming site then fine have track selection, playlists, genre, even DJ mixes all available to stream. Earn money from advertisement and give royalties to the artists, DJ’s or producers. Then if they want to also have the ability to purchase the tracks or mixes. This would make sense then for the lack of research capability on the new site, also not showing the wave form unless you go into the track as the users for this would not be really interested in it.

    Beatport Pro have for the artists, DJ’s and producers, let that…
