Beatport made his spring cleaning, just a bit late. The online electronic music sales site completely rethinks its genres rating system.
Since the rise of electronic music and its commercial derivatives, customers were a bit lost.
The new version will be presented on Monday 12th September.
From now, Beatport will separate sounds into two main categories: EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and underground electronic music.
"Beatport is used by DJ's from both worlds. But it is rare for a DJ plays both types of music. ", explained Terry Weerasinghe (Vice President of the company) to Resident Advisor.
In addition to the already established genres ( drum'n'bass , deep house , house, techno , progressive house , trance ... ), two newcomers will point the tip of their nose : big room and future house. Better: Beatport Pro users will now be able to mark the tracks according to their preferences.
