Beatport Launches Beatport Next to Support Emerging Artists

Beatport Next

VNSSA, TSHA, Logic1000, and more are among the first emerging artists announced for the Beatport Next program.

Over the years Beatport has become a home for established artists and rising stars alike as the platform continues to showcase fresh sounds, offer unique opportunities, and special tools to help take tunes to the next level. Now, they’re building on the future of the dance music scene with their latest announcement, the Beatport Next program.

From now until next year, Beatport Next will see the platform help six emerging artists take the next step in their careers and grow their global fanbase along the way. This program will include everything from being featured in the store and LINK playlisting to custom promotions and livestreams as well.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Beatport Next with these six fantastic, diverse artists who we have been fans of for some time now. Beatport Next is aimed to help grow these up-and-coming artists during a year that will remain very challenging, and we believe that the power of our platform as a promotional tool will help all of the artists exceed their goals for 2021.

So who are the lucky six artists that will be the first to grace Beatport Next? They’ve selected the initial class from a range of different genres and locations all over the world including VNSSA (Tech House), Alignment (Techno), IMANU (Drum and Bass), Logic1000 (Indie Dance), TSHA (House), and Kevin de Vries (Melodic House & Techno). Each producer will be bringing forth fresh releases and plenty more throughout 2021, so make sure to keep your eyes locked on their socials for more to come.

I feel very privileged to have been chosen to be part of the first group of artists for Beatport Next! The pandemic has made this last year so challenging, with not being able to DJ or perform. But I’m more dedicated than ever to producing new music and look forward to sharing it with you this year and connecting even more with the community of DJs on Beatport as part of this program.
