From Everything.Sucks

Beatport is an American electronic music-oriented online music store owned by LiveStyle. The company is based in Denver, Los Angeles, and Berlin. Beatport is oriented primarily towards DJs, selling full songs as well as resources that can be used for remixes.Established in 2004, the service was acquired in 2013 by Robert F. X. Sillerman's company SFX Entertainment for a reported price of slightly over $50 million. In 2014, as part of an effort to widen its audience, Beatport expanded into original content oriented towards fans of electronic dance music, covering EDM news and culture, and offering on-demand music streaming from its catalog and live streaming events.

David S wrote in a review "Beatport is a pure RIP-OFF and I am highly disappointed! For a WAV file, you pay about 2.20$ per song (which normally would be fine). I bought different songs for $62 and wanted to download them overnight to my ipad. Unfortunately the download failed for several songs. No problem, you should think... You can download the music again, right? Yes, but only if you do it within the first 24 hours after the first download! What a cheek! I can't even stream a complete track anymore. Fortunately, I know the musicians and I can ask them to send me the files. I will also advise them to stop supporting Beatport and switch to another platform. STAY AWAY! PS: This is the first time I'm writing a review, but this really sets me up!"

Ruby Williamson says

"This site is a complete scam please avoid , website is a maze to navigate then you realise the subscription you have paid is to access the songs you haven't yet bought that when purchased on top off your subscription don't even actually play on your device, stay away from Beatport"

Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor says

"Total mess. Insanity. Sinking ship."

Merchandising Manager (Former Employee) says

"Beatport was the best company in the music industry for many years. Their values and management started to change in that time and every original employee left or was fired for horrible reasons.free breakfastno values"

Ellis Drake says

"Absolutely awful website!! Would not recommend at all. Started my trial and the option to cancel isn’t there. Website itself is awful and hard to navigate. How the heck people pay £23 a month for this pile of junk is beyond me"

Current Employee - Software Engineer says

"Working on heaps of old technologies that you prefer to avoid telling people you worked on rather than be proud to put on your resume. The overall experience was good to start but, then company in general has lost itself. It's been on a trend downwards for a while now. There are so many companies in Denver that have so much more opportunity I would recommend saving yourself the time and disappointment."

Saul Goodman says

"Terrible. I cant find anything I want. Yet i can find what I want elsewhere for free. Good site but music selection is not ideal , pure junk music. How the heck do they stay in business, I don't know. I did not buy anything. I am looking for another solution if anyone can help. Beatport Charts, where the heck are they from. Maybe not USA because Clubs are not open. Where is BP getting these charts from. Chart music is terrible."

"horrible management no direction a bunch of bullies"

Tom Charley says

"Purchased Beatport Link Pro + solely for the use of the 100 track offline locker. I got the confirmation email saying my subscription was active and ready to use and yet the "store offline" feature is still greyed out . Tried resets / updates for an entire day and nothing has changed so clearly an issue on their end. Waste of time and money and no response from customer support."

Current Employee - Curator says

"Shortsighted and incompetent management with HUGE EGOS."
