  1. Alphabetical sorting of filter menu

    In the "My Beatport" area I have trouble finding the specific label or artist I want from the filter drop down menus because they're not in alphabetical order. It takes me a while to browse the filter list up and down before I find what I need. Quite a difficult mechanic since it's in two columns as well; forcing your eyes to scan two columns at the same time as you scroll down.

  3. ** Selectable Section of Previews for Tracks**

    I can't BELIEVE Beatport still hasn't implemented "needle drop" previews. Half the previews I listen to in the trance and progressive categories don't even make it out of the breakdown. A needle drop is the ONLY way to make sure the track you want is the right mix. I asked for this a couple of years ago but received push back that there were licensing issues. Well, Beatport is the KING now. You can do what you want. If record companies don't want to put entire tracks up with needle drop previews, tough, they have nowhere else to sell their…

  4. Beatport Pro for iOS

    Would be nice to see a Beatport Pro app for iOS (iPhone and iPad). Would appreciate to see features of the desktop application implemented, such as previewing and adding tracks to carts.
    Maybe not downloading on iOS, but adding for further download via the desktop version or the website

  5. **Display all Versions of Track on Track Page (Remix, edits, etc)**

    I would really like to get a list of all available remixes (including the original) of a certain track when entering one of the versions of that track. I usually check all remixes of the track I'm interested in, before I buy the one/s I like best.

    So a 'REMIX ALTERNATIVES' section instead of (or in addition to) 'APPEARS ON', 'PEOPLE ALSO BOUGHT' & 'RECOMMENDED TRACKS' on the track page would be great :-)

  6. Stutter/crackling in preview player when using Microsoft Edge

    There's some annoying stutter/crackling in preview player stutter/crackling when using Microsoft Edge. This has been the case for quite some time and happens with the latest version too:
    Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0
    Microsoft EdgeHTML 15.15063

    It may be a bug in Edge but it may also be a problem in your code.

  7. pre order is the worst idea

    Why are you add the pre order choice? It's completely bullshit. Because you try to sell the released songs on pre order like a new track. I think you didn't understand the pre order mind. And these songs always on top and i couldn't check what is new because of your useless pre order idea. Also your mobile app is crap. I couldn't check anything on that app (new songs, my profile, etc.). And your app for macbook pro doesn't work. It always warn me about login but i can't. When you try to add something new you failed. It…

  8. **New Tracks Since Last Login for My Beatport Indicator**

    When selecting your My Beatport you see that that there are new tracks available. When following the link you see the new but also the old tracks.
    It would be nice that the new tracks of that period will be highlighted.
    And that you also can select to play only the new tracks.

  9. **Buy All Carts button**

    Love the new Carts. Need a way to just buy them all at once.

    Also, the downloads section should specify which carts they came from.

  10. Non mp3 pricing

    Ok, first off, your site wiped my text when I logged in, and there are 404s all over the place, fix the damn site.

    Now the real reason I'm here: fix the pricing on music. I don't care if you charge me $0.75 per song to not have a lossy format (mp3) if I am buying individual songs. BUT I do not want to pay $42 for a $22 album just because I don't want mp3. Bandcamp doesn't charge at all for different formats, and it offers FLAC which I would much prefer.

    If you are worried about bandwidth: use…

  11. There are multiple artists of the name "Dakota" but the database has only one entry

    Hello,

    I can identify at least two artists named "Dakota" whereas the beatport database makes no difference between them:
    https://www.beatport.com/artist/dakota/54747

    Two different artists
    - Dakota (pres. by Markus Schulz): Trance, Progressive, Techno. Track examples are "Chinook", "Katowice", "Mota-Mota".
    - Dakota: Dance. Track examples are "Fast Car", "Dreams".

    Eventually, there is a third artists in the HipHop genre. Track examples may be "On Acid", "$tarsky & Hutch".

    It would be nice if you could fix that problem by creating separate entries in the database.

    Thank you in advance,

    Christopher

  13. **Cover Art in Cart/Hold Bins**

    Thought I'd start a separate item;

    The Releases, and the Recommended sections of my cart have cover art thumbnails. Why doesn't the track list? Is this planned / still being rolled out?

    Thanks BP !

    Planned  ·  Anonymous responded

    Thanks for the feedback. This is certainly work that is planned to be completed. We’ll reach out when this work is done in both the cart and the hold bin.

  15. ***Played Track Indicator***

    This issue was closed on March 23, 2015, but a replay icon does not show up anywhere a played track appears under a unique account login.

    This is a critical feature for those of us who trawl through the thousands of archived and recently added tracks. It can mean the difference between using Beatport or not.

  16. Higher quality previews

    I think we all need better sound quality previews to make Beatport perfect, 96kbps at the moment is too low, sometimes horrible artifacts destroy the sound and we lose a lot expecially in the high frequencies, for me it could be great if you give us the opportunity to listen music at higher bitrate than now! I hope that this point will be seriously discussed in the nearly future, in my opinion is the last step to reach the top, the pleasure of listening a non ultra-compressed file is amazing!

  17. *** Allow Purchased Customer Comments on Tracks and Releases***

    People can say what they think of the music.

    Also, we can discuss similar music that others might enjoy. Sometimes I find a great track, would be nice to be able to discuss it with people to find more amazing music.

  18. Streaming service

    Beat Pandora. Become the hub of electronic music streaming by partnering with Shazam for a direct link to any content in the store. Don't charge too much for the service and definitely keep that awesome customer service.

  19. Revert the changes made to "More From This Label"

    Previously, when you clicked on one of the first 21 releases on a record label, that release would still be located at the "More From This Label" section near the bottom of the page. Now, if the release is one of the first 21 releases and you click it, that release disappears from the "More from this label" section and you can forget where it was originally located. To me, this just seems like an unneccessary fix.
