The best way to pitch for features is by keeping your distributor up to date with your upcoming releases, they will have a dedicated label manager here at Beatport with whom they can discuss feature options.
For artists: Please contact your label.
For self-releasing artists: Please contact your distributor.
For labels: Please contact your distributor. If your label made under $15,000 in the last 12 months on Beatport, you may be eligible for our Beatport Hype accelerator program.
Here are a few tips on what kind of information to include in your pitch to your distributor:
*3-5 big name DJs supporting your track (please see below in bad for what we do NOT consider good feedback in this regards)
*Links to big name DJs playing your track.
*Magazine and blog premieres.
*A precise marketing plan explaining when and what will be posted where, and any money to be spent is very important.
*If you’re going to post on socials, then social media reach.
*DJ feedback that says “downloaded for…..” this for us is not good feedback. For us it means the person listening and downloading the music for said DJs downloaded it, and not that the actual DJ liked the track. For example, for Richie Hawtin, he has a twitter feed and showing what tracks that he actually played, this would be good feedback.
*Social media and marketing campaigns listed “as usual”….we need more info than this.
*Sending the full promo campaign sheets, this is too time consuming for us to read these, we need the good bits from the promo sheets.
All of this will help your feature requests be stronger, but will not guarantee a feature. These are ultimately up to the genre curator.
