Positive Trends

We'd like to use the last item of our newsletter to speak about the positive customer-based trends we've seen at Beatport lately. Despite the recent global economic hardships many face, user interest continues to grow in each territory and genre, giving us an optimistic view for the future of dance music. We are sure that electronic music is here to stay, and hope that this continued commitment to our industry is evident in your individual label sales. All the best,The Beatport Team "
