Beatport Kicks Off New Dance/Electro Pop Genre with a Livestream
Last month, Beatport added the new Dance/Electro Pop genre in order to accommodate the growing roster of artists who excel in blending new electronic sounds with more traditional pop elements. Beatport recognizes that global dance music hitmakers — whose music moves seamlessly from the club to the radio, to the festival stage, and back again — are capturing fans across the spectrum and needed a category that speaks to their pop sensibilities.
To celebrate the launch of our latest genre, Beatport will host a 10-hour Selects livestream with a diverse cast of artists that are leading the charge into this new dance music era that combines classic songwriting techniques with modern electronic awareness.
Starting at 6 PM PDT/3 AM CEST on Sunday, October 11th, the virtual event will host charismatic duos such as SOFI TUKKER, KREAM, and Icona Pop, as well as celebrated producers and singer-songwriters like Taska Black, Elohim, Jay Pryor, Elderbrook, and more.
Viewers can tune in to the stream via our Twitch Channel or on the Beatport homepage, where fans can enjoy live track IDs throughout the show.
