PromoBox Update - Subscription Page Sorting
Since the launch of PromoBox, over 15,000 DJs are now using it to sort and manage their promo's on a daily basis. We are tirelessly working alongside some of the world's most renowned DJs to develop the online, iOS & Android apps.
Over the last couple of weeks our development team have been working on new ways to make it even easier to get to your favourite music. With the addition of 'Subscription Page Sorting', you can manage your subscriptions quickly and effectively.
Sorting your subscriptions by 'Beatport Followers or Chart Success' helps you decide which labels you want to favourite, ultimately to show up at the top of your promo list. This will help you get to the hidden gems quickly.
We have also added sort by A-Z & Z-A for viewing your subscriptions in alphabetical order.

SoundCloud Introduces - 'Stations'
SoundCloud are excited to announce the launch of Stations on the SoundCloud app for iOS and Android.
Stations will allow users to discover tracks they can't find anywhere else, letting them tune in, sit back, and discover. It takes their previous 'Related Tracks' feature and brings it further, simplifying the functionality and making the recommendations even better.
A station can be started from any track, search term, content stream or your Collection. Pull up the menu from any one of those four and select the 'Start Station' option. SoundCloud pull from the 100 million plus tracks on the platform to bring you an endless stream of awesome audio.
Stations can be accessed at any time via your Collection, along with Likes and Playlists, within your Android or iOS SoundCloud App which is available from the App store on your device.

Beatport Announcement - The Beat Goes On...
Yesterday SFX announced their bankruptcy, but this doesn't mean everything is over for Beatport. Here is their official statement to put your mind at ease...
'Yesterday, news broke that our parent company SFX Entertainment introduced a financial reorganization plan that includes both new financing and filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
All Beatport users, customers, and partners should rest assured knowing that this action will have no impact on our ability to continue offering the most complete electronic music experience available. Around here, it's business as usual.
That means the entire Beatport platform is fully operational without restriction. The store remains open. The streaming service continues uninterrupted. New releases are being added every day. New videos are being scheduled and filmed. Payments to labels and suppliers are ongoing in their usual manner.
In fact, Beatport is expanding. Just last week we launched a version of Beatport customized for the Dutch market, our first foray into operating a fully localized service, and we will be introducing several new features to our News and Video sections over the course of the coming weeks.
For 12 years, Beatport has served all facets of the electronic music community DJs, artists, labels, and fans alike and that's not going to change anytime soon. From the beginning we've committed ourselves to the long haul, ignoring the mainstream trends, fads, or bubbles that only serve to distract and divide. We remain focused on the music and will continue to reinvest in the creative community every step of the way. We have a lot of exciting plans for the year ahead, and can't wait to show everyone what's next.
Until then... The beat goes on.'
