Over the past three years, 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.
Initially featuring six artists before increasing that number to eight in 2022, Beatport has decided to expand its Next program even further next year, allowing twelve new talented acts the opportunity to shine while strengthening their visibility and connection to the global DJ/producer community by joining The Beatport Next Class of 2024.
These dozen artists will be joining the ranks of an elite group of artists who have grown to become some of dance music’s most sought-after acts, including TSHA, Kevin de Vries, Nia Archives, Logic1000, VNSSA, IMANU, AMÉMÉ, Emily Nash, Jaden Thompson, Nikki Nair, HoneyLuv, Coco & Breezy, Junior Simba, and more.
