I said it before and I’ll say it again Beatport is taking over. On March 18th registered users of Beatport.com will have the chance to vote in the first annual Beatport Music Awards. Fans, DJs, and clubbers will click and vote on 19 categories, 18 which will range from Best Electro House Artist, Best Trance Artist, and Best Single of 2007 based on Beatport sales. The final category asks members to name the most influential, forward-thinking person in electronic music.
The voting results plan to be posted via Beatportal.com at the end of April (no official date yet). DeadMau5 managed to take the lead racking up four Beatport nominations with Thomas Gold on his back with three.
///////// WOW is the word. Beatport has once again opened up new doors to their online digital world. As if Beatportal.com, Beatsource.com and major marketing endeavors weren’t enough they have managed to squeeze out a annual music awards. Beatport mission is clear, to take over the world.
