Finishing December With Cool Updates to Remember

With the holiday season just around the corner, our “Santa’s workshop” was busy as ever. Sure, we wrapped up some presents to put under our office Christmas tree, but we also wrapped up a cool number of updates. Look around the site and see if you notice anything different 😉

More on that later. Now, here are four important new features you should know about.

#1 Beatport analytics: see an Artist's latest collab tracks and label releases, and compare their ranks

Beatport analytics for Artists have been upgraded with an easier overview of each Artist’s latest releases on a specific Label and their latest collabs with other Artists. This sorting allows for a quicker overview of their productivity and networking, and easier tracking of their most recent work. 

That first date isn’t a glitch – once a track is available as a pre-order on Beatport, its official release date will be automatically entered into our analytics.

The track overview section now also shows how the Artist’s success in entering Beatport’s Top 100 charts compares to similarly ranked Artists (look for “average % of Tracks on Top 100 Charts”). This indicator will provide an additional frame of reference to your analysis. 

UMEK’s example shows he’s doing quite well. 

#2 Beatport Label analytics display each Artist’s most recent releases

To ensure an even quicker overview, the “Artists on the Label” section is further improved with listings of the latest tracks that each Artist has released on this Label.

1605’s example shows the chronological display, as well as listing the Artists’ most recent (and upcoming) collabs. 

#3 New in Audience analytics: Monthly Streaming Audience City Map

Each Artist can examine where in the world their Spotify listeners and YouTube views are coming from. Both the list and the map are clickable.   

#4 Explore Genres by their Spotify numbers and talked-about Artists 

Genre analytics got a new section: Top Countries by Spotify Monthly Listeners. This can be especially handy for evaluating and planning your marketing strategies, as you can estimate your genre’s potential in countries worldwide (as long as Spotify’s available there). 

Here's how Electronic music performed last month. 

And since the music industry is all about the right connections, our “Most Mentioned Artists” section of Genre analytics now also lists the top three most influential names who recently mentioned a certain Artist.

It wouldn’t be a holiday season without some excitement, so we’re also going to be rolling out a major announcement soon. For now, we’re keeping things under (decorative) wraps, but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s out.
