Beatport Hype Top 100

Beatport has launched a Hype Top 100
Should be interesting to find some more rising labels & artists, curious how this will work out eventually and if it filters high potential new comers from a weekly dosis of not-so-talented DJ's.... :dj2:

"Beatport is launching new Hype Charts to support rising labels, the online music giant announced today.

Set to arrive early-June, the new additions will feature prominently on the platform's ten biggest genre pages, and are being introduced to help shine some light on up-and-coming imprints, releases and artists that may have previously been overshadowed by bigger names and labels.

"With so many incredible releases added to Beatport each week, there's a lot of competition for the attention of our DJ customers," said Terry Weerasinghe, Beatport's Chief Product Officer.

"The Hype Charts give top billing to those shining gems that might have previously gone under the radar. It's a valuable tool for Beatport to promote new talent, while encouraging the DJ community to dig deeper in the store."

As part of the 2018 IMS Business Report at the International Music Summit in Ibiza this week, Beatport also confirmed that its entire catalogue will be streamable to DJ software by 2019 following the purchase of Pulselocker last month."

This is a good development, there is lot's of good talent out there that didn't get a earned chance yet, so this might be a nice podium to share their music with us!

Good start, but Beatport could also do something about this by promoting some smaller artists and labels in their various toplists.. Even the crate digger lists contain only the usual suspects everytime..
