Beatport constantly adds and removes genres from their approved list like Trap, Tropical House, Jackin' House, Twerk, etc. and sometimes our system may not show a newer genre addition. You can still distribute with these genres but it needs to be done manually.
If you do not see your Beatport genre when creating a release follow these steps:
- Submit the release with the next closest genre (for example if Trap isn't available select Bass or Hip / Hop)
- Once the release is approved create a ticket providing the UPC and desired genre for the release
- Once we have received the request we can manually edit the release on Beatport's system
- Please allow at least 18 days between the release and submission date for this type of edit in order for the release to go live under the proper genre
