How can we improve Beatport Music Store?

**Hide Re-Releases**

Beatport can check it and to do it separated, the people don't know when a tracks is new or not because nowadays all the tracks are together

I think that´s important to make possible a right follow up of artists and don´t disturb with old stuffs

The old tracks re-released can be in other tab in the same artist page like VA, compilations, etc

It´s no problem of the artists, because each label sign new license contract with other labels and the artist can not to control it

    This is progressively becoming more of a problem. I agree with the original poster. It has come to the point of being near a nuissance to bother to look for new music on Beatport because of the ridiculous amount of compilations that get released that usually include tracks that are years old but still listed as a new release. Something as simple as a new search filter such as "EP" and "LP" could be a possible idea to look into to help with this deathly issue. ......and yes if this problem continues to get worse, it will cause many to look else where for music unfortunately. I'm a heavy Beatport user and purchase quite a bit here but is becoming less and less. Please try to fix this issue.

    Please, please add this function. I swear if I have to hear another re-release of Robin Feelgood's "Not in love" I will become insane! Literally hundreds of times it popped up already. Do they really think we are idiots? If I wanted that track, I would have bought it!

    It's there already in the windows/mac app!

    I think you should be able to buy all releases if you want it to. You might want to support one label more than the other. Sometimes the artwork if different. Most importantly label master tracks differently so quality could still differ amongst seemingly same tracks.

    Is it really coming? Or are you still keen on making more money from us by not really caring about the product and making those extra bucks with re-releases we (according to another item in this uservoice channel) shouldn't even be able to purchase?

    I absolutely agree! I have been stung in the past by re-release. BP charges double the price of the original release.

  • DJMitchRyan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'd love it if there was one master file for a track, regardless if it was from the original single/EP or one a multitude of compilations/mixes. I really, REALLY hate hearing a song I like and having to do a double check to find it was released a year ago, yet the "current" version from a compilation is priced at $2.49.

    Being able to click on something to "show other versions/duplicates" would be nice.

    "Synth with Beatport" requires all releases, otherwise you will not find proper metadata or artwork for your particular track. Please don't drop this functions. But option to hide/unhide re-releases will be appreciated.

  • bassydolem commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    My current practical solution to this is to query from/to publishdate and sort by title. De duplication of songs is then done by skipping songs in the list with the same title/duration.

    @ProtonLLC: example: Kaiserdisco - Jaana 2015-08-10 is a re-release that isn't shaded.

    Thanks !

    @Touz - It's instant. If a track has been previously released, then it will appear greyed out on Crates. What track did you find that wasn't correctly shaded? If you can link to the re-release and the original release then we can investigate further!

    Thank you ProtonLLC ! I'm now sold to your 3rd party app because of this feature :D

    How long does it takes for a track to be considered a re-release ? A few days ? A few weeks ?

    Also how accurate is it ? I saw a re-released track that wasn't shaded.

    Thanks again :)

    This feature is now live & ready for testing on Crates. Filter out re-released tracks on Beatport, including your MyBeatport feed.

    (Crates is is an electronic music browser built by DJs, for DJs powered by the Beatport API)

    They absolutely dominate the new releases sections. Do you know how hard it is to actually find EPs amongst them? How about some quality control because this enormous amount of terrible generic compilations is disgusting. There needs to be a way to filter them out or just stop releasing so many!

    Happy to see Beatport is finally doing something about this. Its a must and should have been done years ago.
