  1. Club House genre

    Instead of putting Afrojack, Dennis Koyu, David Guetta and all these artists in Progressive House, together with a billion other artists making everything but progressive house, you should create a genre called "Club House" and seperate that kind of music from stuff like Anjunadeep or Bedrock. How is it possible that Anjunadeep, Bedrock AND above mentioned artists are competing under the same genre when it sounds completely different. It sure doesn't make it easy for labels, artists or buyers to get exposure or good advice on what music they should buy. This is a problem that annoys a lot of…

    Hi everyone and sorry it’s been a while since my last update on this thread. As I mentioned last time, we recognize the need to update our genre classification system. With the rapidly and constant changing nature of music we are developing a system that will be more flexible to adapt to changing styles and genres. Thanks for your patience while we work to get things up and running.

  2. Why can't you re-download tracks after some time?

    I think it should be available troughout the life of your account. It's like buying CD, you buy it only once

    Thanks for your feedback. If this gets a large number of votes, we’ll look into adding this genre.

  4. Android Beatport app!

    It's great on the iPhone, please make one for Android.

  5. Advanced Search Filtering

    If I'm a dummy (definitely possible) and I missed it I apologize but a solid advanced search is definitely the most necessary addition to this site. We need to be able to search by all the factors available. Genre, bpm, key, etc.

    Thanks for your feedback Aces. You’re correct that there are no advanced search filters or fields in the search results. Additionally it is not possible to filter any track list by BPM and Key yet. We hope to add both of these features in the future.

  6. Add "psybreaks" as a subgenre of both breaks and psytrance.

    The psybreaks sound is quickly growing in popularity around the world amongst producers, DJs, and fans. The relatively new application of psytrance with other psychedelic and experimental sounds is now being driven by a powerful, dancefloor-friendly breakbeat.

    The popularity of psybreaks is currently reflected in the Beatport Top 10 Breaks Chart as well as Breakspoll nominating various psybreaks artists this year and awarding Hedflux with Best Artist in 2011. Psybreaks labels are popping up around the globe to encourage the development of this unique style.

  7. Offer FLAC format in addition to (or instead of) WAV

    FLAC files are the same quality as WAV, but are much smaller and can include tags and album art.

    Hello everybody. Today we introduced AIFF as a new lossless format that you can select during purchase. We’re hoping that this will address some of the functionality you’ve been asking for (metadata and album art in a lossless file). This forum will stay open so people can continue to vote for FLAC support and we would love to hear about your experiences using our AIFF downloads. For more information on why we started with AIFF, see this post: http://news.beatport.com/blog/2011/09/09/introducing-aiff-format/.

  8. Either a Native iPad app or please fix the HTML5 for safari on the iPad

    It's basically useless on the iPad, what would be even better is Beatport Pro tobe an app for iPhone and iPad, it's probably coming at some stage.

    The HTML5 coding on the iPad safari just doesn't work, it's really hard together a preview playing and certain frames and borders and colors simply aren't conforming

    Thanks for your feedback BenMcC. You’re right that the site it not very usable on iPad at the moment and we have plans to fix that. Though it’s less than ideal, you can try our mobile site at m.beatport.com.

  10. Customer reward system

    Have suggested this in the past direct Customer Service but it was somewhat brushed off. Beatport customers are investing 100s, 1000s, if not tens of thousands of dollars over time into this service and discount vouchers are only offered at a minimum nor is there any kind of consistant rewards system in place. If it was possible, would love to see a system that rewards regular customers in some way or another, rather than the general 20% off (with a strict time limit on the voucher) emailed out every few months or more.
    Perhaps some kind of points system or…

  11. Highlight tracks I've already purchased

    OK, admittedly there's a fair amount of user error involved here. But, sometimes I buy a track and quickly forget that fact. And a week later, I'll then "rediscover" it - and try and buy it.

    Could you highlight previously purchased items in a listing so I don't even attempt to buy them again? I feel super dumb each time I do it.

  12. Difficult to Know if I already follow an artist/label.

    When I'm on an artist/label's page I can't tell if I am already following them or not. I checked it out and the follow button looks exactly the same for artists I'm sure I'm not following and artists I'm sure I am following. Can you have the follow button change to "following" to make things easier? Also, while listening to the player, I feel like the drop down menu with the follow options should change to either already have a check next to the artists/labels you are already following or say you're following those that you are or only have…

    Thanks for your feedback netherfire. You’re absolutely right and we’ll see what we can do.

  13. Fix BPM / Key for the following tracks:

    We're still refining our BPM and Key detection.

    If you find a track that's marked incorrectly, please leave a comment here with a link to the track page.

    We are currently investigating the performance issues some users are seeing with the site. If you are seeing issues, please contact support@beatport.com so we help diagnose these issues. Thanks for your patience as we investigate this.

  15. Switch between classic and current top genre / artist / label top 10s

    It would be great to have a switch to change between "alltime" and "current" (i.e. last 3 months) top 10's for label, artist and genre chart pages.

    This would give people the chance to check what's hot about their favorite artists and labels right NOW and filter out the old stuff which they might have bought and played years ago already.

  16. Chose which part of a track to listen

    I'd love to scroll that green rectangle!
    With tracks expanding to 12 minutes, sometimes more, and especially for DJ mixes and progressive style tracks in which a couple of minutes does not tell enough of the story, or when someone is looking for a track that needs the highs or lows in a way that matches that "wonderful track I absolutely want to play"... and the label chose another part of the track for preview.

    It's fine that the publisher decides which segment is best to initially preview, but it would be great if I can easily preview other parts…

  18. Better Sub-Genre Categorization, Sub-Genre Menu & Top Downloads

    The main genres are fine and I think the biggest complaint I hear from a lot of users and friends is that Beatport has become more like a walmart for dance music. Because there is no "sub-genre" page or way to get deeper into dance music you are stuck at the top of the main genre page showing top 10 downloads. So you are always seeing just the most popular. It makes it very hard to dig down in and spread the exposure more evenly. I think what is needed is A) More Sub-Genre options for Labels to choose from…

    Thanks for you feedback symbio. We definitely recognize a need for better/more genre categorization and will be introducing features to this effect in the future.
