Beatport to Remove Non-Selling Uploads in Cleanup Initiative – EDM.com

Songs with no sales released prior to January 2019 will soon be removed from Beatport.

Beatport is cutting its catalogue of music as part of the platform’s newly announced annual cleanup policy. 

In a statement sent to music suppliers, the LiveStyle-owned digital music store stated it will soon be deleting all releases “which haven’t sold any units since the release date.” This first sweep will only remove content released prior to January 2019 that has not sold. In the future, Beatport intends to continue removing assets with no sales on a yearly basis. 

Beatport’s statement itself was shared by DJ Tech Tools. At the time of writing, no spokespeople on behalf of the online music marketplace have commented publicly on the matter.
