Beatport are having a cull of their electronic music catalogue so that only the music that sells is on offer from their digital download store.
Beatport is the largest electronic music store on the internet offering up a massive catalogue of electronic songs for download. It makes sense then, that with over 7 million tracks, there are songs on there that aren’t doing anything.
Starting this year Beatport have pledged to have a “yearly storage clean-up procedure” to remove music that unfortunately hasn’t sold anything since they released. This prioritises the music that people are interested in and will make Beatport’s library more manageable.
Beatport promise that only content release before January 2019 will be affected in the clean up, allowing tracks released this year to have a chance. They plan to enforce this clean up once a year around the same time, so if those tracks still haven’t made a sale in a years time they will be removed.
