With a solid first release, Beatport have finally launched their own application on the Play Store. From here, you can listen completely free to your favourite artists, or the highly regarded “Pulse Chart.” Let’s get this clear from the start, you’d need like the certain genres of music that Beatport are famous for. If you only listen to Thrash Metal or Reggae this app isn’t going to be for you. If you like Electronic, House or Deep House and even Techno, you’ll find a vast collection of tracks and playlists to suit your taste. If EDM is your thing, you’ll be aware of Beatport already, I’d assume.
There’s parts of Material Design through out the app but not completely. Yes, caching of tracks and gaps between the playlists are present too. Right now Beatport won’t replace your current music subscription service, it provides a more genre-specific option for fans of the music style. The player looks awesome and the option to sign in to follow your favourite artists is a great option, you’ll find a fantastic selection of current tracks along with classics, you can then purchase the track to keep forever, which is what Beatport actually is / was. There’s also a “shows” option which uses your location for nearby events, not much happening here locally because all the top DJs and producers are in Miami for the Winter Music Conference. To conclude.. The app looks great, has a vast selection of tunes and it’s 100% free to stream with no adverts. Finishing touches and adding features will only make Beatport for Android even better.
