Beatport brings bass to your face by adding 3 new genres
Fans can now get trapped by grimy basslines as Beatport brings bass to its platform on new levels.
Beatport is the electronic music retailer extraordinaire, hosting a plethora of different genres and sub-genres of the electronic music realm.
With the ever-evolving sounds of electronic music, staying up-to-date with the sub-genres popping up can be an arduous task.
Beatport has now updated its platform to include 3 new sub-genres for the increasingly popular bass music, which will allow users to easily navigate and find the styles they desire.
The sub-genres they have added are: trap/future bass, garage/bassline/grime and leftfield bass.
Each new category will bid a distinct sound profile, and allow new artists and labels to feature, and in turn to flourish on the Beatport platform.
Slap on that bass!
Trap/Future Bass needs no introduction and has been majorly popularized in the US and Canada. Artists like UZ, Mr. Carmack and Bro Safari will be driving the team alongside key labels like Quality Good Records, Mad Decent and OWSLA.
Garage/Bassline/Grime highlights the underground UK sounds that revel in all things low-frequency. DJ Q, Distickt, Flava D and Butterz join 887 Records and Crucast, just to name a few, in heading the game.
Leftfield Bass takes a turn away from its brasher US sound as it shines a light on the budding underground innovators, hosting deeply respected labels like Teklife, Deep Medi Musik and Hyperdub alongside titan artists such as Ikonika, DJ Spinn and Addison Groove.
General manager of Beatport, Terry Weerasinghe admits: “We 100-percent recognise that we are really late to the game introducing these genres,” but that the company is committed to working diligently with labels, artists and press to build the absolute best possible experience for the bass community.
Beatport brings bass to your face, on whole new levels.
