How to get Approved on Beatport

Since Beatport tries to cater to specific genres (EDM, hip-hop) you'll need to seek approval prior to distribution on their platform. This approval process takes around a week to process. Beatport accepts niche content, if your material does not fit the genres that they carry then it will not be sent because they don't carry genres other than what you see on their platform. If you already have an account with Symphonic you can use the form below to get approved on Beatport.


How to get Featured on Beatport

So you have a new release and want it to be featured on Beatport. Well get ready, because there is a lot of competition. But the good news is that it can all happen with consistency and, of course, good music. We work very hard to help our clients get features each and every week. 

First, if you'd like to increase the probability of being featured we have some tips that might help here. Being featured in the first place isn't easy but, is possible. A common misconception is that you can pay to be on the front page and we'll put that to rest right now because no, front page features are not available for sale.

Everyone has the opportunity to be featured on the front page or aspects of Beatport and other partners however, we recommend you deliver material 4-5 weeks before a release date, have a consistent and professional design of your website and social media, release music consistently and most of all, have great music.

Signing up for features using our system is explained here.
