    1. would like the ability to sort table columns
    2. would like to be able to add / remove table columns and have columns like "Genre" (Kind of like datatables)

    Crates primarily displays feeds of tracks, which often contain hundreds/thousands of tracks. If you sorted by artist, label, or track name, the returned list wouldn’t be very useful.

    Could you guys give some examples of columns you’d want to sort by, and in what context?

    Crates now supports filtering by Beatport genre, release date, and musical key, so I think that might cover most of the use cases here.

    In regards to adding or removing columns – I like that idea. What columns from Beatport would you want to be able to add, besides genre?

    Out of curiosity, what interests you guys more:

    (1) Infinite Scroll – more tracks constantly load, without you needing to click to the next page?

    (2) More Tracks Per Page – Just more tracks per page, like 100 or 150, like the Beatport site?

    Thanks for feedback!

  3. Filter tracks by BPM

    Would be great if you could only have tracks within a certain BPM range show up.

  5. Arrow Keys Take You To Previous/Next Page At Top/Bottom of List

    This would be a minor improvement to the UI, so that you don't have to mouse to the previous/next buttons.

    Thanks again,

    James

  6. Allow an option for me to share my cart with anyone through a private URL

    I've always wanted this feature. So that I can get friends to come in and listen to my cart and then give a thumbs up or thumbs down to the items in my cart.

  7. Integrate with other DJ download APIs such as Juno and any others that exist

    How awesome would this be? If we could browse all of the various websites... AT THE SAME TIME.?! No? Huh? Seriously! I can help with this if you like.

  8. Feature: "Chart Score"

    It's my understanding that Beatport doesn't release the number of times a track has been bought or played, correct? One way Crates might be able to give tracks a popularity ranking could be thought something like a "Chart Score".

    Every time a track gets posted to a chart, it gets one point. You could then sort tracks based on Chart Score to get a good idea of what tracks are blowing up. For example if I click on "Black Cow" by
    Booka Shade & Yaruba it appears on 30 charts by my count. That would give it a Chart Score…

    Thanks for the feedback Ryan – you’re right that we could capture a “Times Charted” every time we load the track, but tracks only get loaded when a user plays/selects them. This means the data would only get updated on tracks users are selecting, so I don’t think it’s that valuable.

    The other thing is that not many DJs are posting Charts on Beatport right now, for various reasons, so I actually don’t think “Times Charted” is a very meaningful metric until Beatport expands their playlists/charts. It’s not a priority of theirs right now, unfortunately.

    We’ll definitely keep an eye on this once we get access to the new Beatport API next year though, hopefully. :) Keep the feedback/ideas coming until then!

  9. I would love to be able to cruise the top 100 in different genres on crates.co

    The check mark for previously listened to tracks is my favourite time-saver on crates.co
    Would really love to be able to check out the top 100 tracks in all the genres and only listen to the ones I haven't heard before.
    PS. Thanks so much for making this. I have been using it for years and I love it.

    Thanks for the positive feedback, Tim! Glad you’re enjoying Crates. :)

    I think Genre support will be something we add in the near future once a few of our other priorities are finished. I’ll update this ticket when there’s news to report!

  10. Add "Next Track" and "Previous Track" buttons to the player

    Add simple fast forward and rewind buttons around the current play/pause button.

    Jay, have you tried using the hotkeys? You can quickly skip to the next track or previous track without needing to use a button. Click the ? at the top of Crates to see all the available hotkeys. Will that do the trick for you here? :)

  11. Genre on collection view

    When viewing a crate, perhaps I'm missing it, but It would be handy to add a genre column to the colleciton list. If possible, linking this to the genre pages on beatport in case I wanted to view other recent artists of that genre on the beatport site

    Hi Sean! We don’t currently have a genre column on Crates or a way to browse by genre. This is something we’ll definitely explore adding in the future, but it’s not a top priority at the moment.

    Genres are a bit messy on Beatport and we made a conscious decision to exclude them from Crates. I agree it’s a useful way to find new music, though, and we’ll see what we can do about supporting them in the near future.

  12. Pick up where you left off

    Instead of starting from page 1 every time I log in, I would love a way to bookmark where I left off so I don't have to keep searching?

  13. Crates for Bandcamp

    Crates.co has revolutionized my digging experience for digital music on beatport. I'm finding myself having to do parallel digging on bandcamp for a lot of non-beatport content though (an area growing more and more). I would love to see a crates for bandcamp—ideally it could show in my inbox feed, but even if it was a separate feed it would be huge. Right now the browsing experience for artists and labels I follow on Bandcamp is abysmal at best. I have to click in and out of releases and pages to hear the music, takes forever.

    Thanks for the kind words Ben! We’d love to integrate with Band Camp, but they don’t have an API for their music catalog.

    (Crates is powered by Beatport’s API. If BandCamp adds an API for their catalog, then we can explore integration with them as well.)

  14. I would love the ability to actually customize my own keyboard shortcuts

    The arrow keys may have been hot shit in 1996, but these days most peoples hands gravitate towards AWSD (Games) or ASDF (Typing).
    The ability to set these ourselves would, for example, probably speed up listening and skipping through tracks.

  15. Add a search to find collaborations between artists

    For example I'd like to be able to search on Royskopp and then add a second filter of Robyn so that I can see all tracks that they've done together. I believe the old Beatport had that ability to do this. I haven't ever used the new Beatport so I'm not sure if it does this or not. But it's something I find myself wanting frequently. THANKS!

  16. Ability to filter out tracks you already own by uploading a file with their details

    For example, uploading a CSV with the relevant metadata that then persists so you can only see tracks you haven't listened to. Ability to combine this with the other filters too.

  17. Add filtering & sorting inside your "Hold Bin" & "Cart".

    Now it is available only in "My Beatport" which is good but when there are hundreds of tracks inside your Hold Bin...well that would be great to filter them as well.

  18. Spotify playlist integration

    Thank you so much for building Crates....a lot of us DJs these days use Spotify to discover our music and build playlists. It would be really cool if a Spotify playlist link can be given to Crates and it creates a crate out of it . Add to that the option to buy everything on that crate, and boom - gig prep is done.

  19. Additional filters like type (Release/Album/mix) etc.

    It would be great if you could implement the missing filter possiblities which you can select on the top of "My Beatport".

    e.g. sometimes I only want to search for new albums, the other day only for EP's.

    Cheers
    Michael

  20. spotify

    Add a Spotify search function similar to the YouTube one. I pay for Spotify and would love to hear a high resolution copy before buying.
