Techno is still the best selling genre!
In June 2018, Beatport launched Hype Charts will showcase the best boutique labels in the world, driving more visibility for independent music makers. According to this music platform, 96% of Beatport's music sales consist of independent music - adding about 25,000 new releases each week.
The Beatport's Curatorial Team made a Hype Picks section, composed of songs that break into the Hyper 100 chart.
"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", said Terry Weerasinghe, Beatport's Chief Product Officer.
