As the beatport hype machine continues to establish itself on the beatport site itself & across the music industry in general, we thought we’d share just one of the success stories we’ve encountered…
A label called Lost On You music recently moved their distribution to ampsuite, and we were super excited to work with this imprint. Not only do they release some fabulous music, but the ethos behind the label is a noble and quite unique one to boot! As the first electronic record label and benefit program to donate all money raised from the album sales to help with the fight against malnutrition, better health, and sanitary problems in the poorest parts of Africa… working with charities such as Living Goods and the One Acre Fund.
So when it came to the release of the first single , from esteemed producer duo Rafael Cerato & Haze-M with their doubler header EP ‘Perihelion’, we pushed the release as one of our priority singles to Beatport, and beatport very Kindly gave the release some support superb support through their new hype service, with a banner feature on the homepage AND on the melodic house & techno genre.
The combined efforts behind this release, and of course the superb music , have now helped this Hype supported release to reach number 1 in the Melodic House & Techno hype chart!
So, as it started to climb the hype chart, and reached number 1, the single sales in the main Beatport singles chart also started to gather momentum off the back of this. With the single currency sitting at number 16 in there too! no mean feat for one of the most popular current genres on Beatport!
As we write this feature, the release has also just entered the overall top ten Hype on beatport too, at number 9.
An all round success story , we hope you’ll agree, and one we thought worth sharing. This is by no means the only success story we have had with the new Hype service though, which we hope will continue!
