2014 Beatport Awards

Voting has officially opened for the 2014 Beatport Awards. The awards recognize music created over the past year as well as the creativity of artists and labels that help keep the music and culture of electronic music constantly moving forward.

Clark Wanrer, Executive Creative Director of Beatport released this statement regarding the Beatport Awards:

The richness and diversity of dance music culture is reflected in both its commercial success, as well as in the uniqueness of the artists, labels, and fans that support it.
