First started in 2021, Beatport’s accelerator program for emerging artists, Beatport Next, has given numerous acts a significant career boost, providing them with the promotional tools they need to amplify their sound and introduce them to audiences worldwide.

Artists from previous classes include:

Beatport Next Class of 2021: TSHA, Kevin de Vries, Logic1000, VNSSA, Alignment, IMANU

Beatport Next Class of 2022: 8Kays, AMÉMÉ, Emily Nash, Jaden Thompson, Marina Trench, Nia Archives, Nikki Nair, Risa Taniguchi

With the end of the year fast approaching, Beatport are now offering a fresh group of eight new talented artists the opportunity to join the Beatport Next Class of 2023!

So what does our Beatport Next’s program do exactly, and how can it help bring you more attention?

If successful, over the course of the next 12 months, Beatport may provide its eight Beatport Next artists with homepage features, banners, and eye-catching placement for new releases throughout the store, featured playlists, editorial coverage on Beatportal, live streams, and social media support.

Beatport Next’s is designed to support upcoming artists at various stages of their development, while strengthening their visibility and connection to Beatport’s global DJ community.

Primarily, they are looking for artists who have signed to a few record labels or run their own imprint, are skilled and experienced DJs, have music currently available on Beatport, and have a heavy release schedule for 2023.
