Major Label Content Now Available on Beatport

Major-label content has been something of a black hole, as far as DJ-friendly digital music is concerned. There’s simply been no place to get the stuff in the high-fidelity formats that DJs require—WAVs or 320 kbps MP3s.  Beatport now offers a wealth of material from EMI and its many imprints (Capitol, Positiva, Astralwerks, Astralwerks – Caroline, Mute Records, Virgin UK, etc.)—a family of labels whose roots in dance music and electronic alternative run deep.  This is huge news in the world of dance music.

With nearly 100 new artist being added to their roster, the offerings range from electronic pioneers like Kraftwerk to contemporary superstars like Steve Angello and the Swedish House Mafia; from Depeche Mode to Daft Punk, and from Blondie to Goldfrapp. This deal fills an enormous gap in the digital-music marketplace, as acts like Gorillaz,Beastie Boys, Can, D’Angelo, Lily Allen, and more finally become available at Beatport in the high-fidelity formats that DJs demand.
