Beatport is an electronic music-oriented online music store. The company is based in Denver, Colorado with offices in Los Angeles, California, San Francisco, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Berlin, Germany. Beatport is oriented primarily towards DJs, selling full songs as well as resources that can be used for remixes.
Established in 2004, the service was acquired in 2013 by Robert F. X. Sillerman's company SFX Entertainment for a reported price of slightly over $50 million. In 2014, as part of an effort to widen its audience, Beatport expanded into original content oriented towards fans of electronic dance music, covering EDM news and culture, and offering on-demand music streaming from its catalog and live streaming events.
SFX Entertainment filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy on February 1, 2016, and Beatport was subsequently put up for sale, with an auction scheduled for May. However, the auction has since been suspended, and Beatport shut down its original content operations on May 10, 2016 to focus on its core music sales business.
