      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!

      • Filter tracks by BPM

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

          • 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

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • 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!

                  • 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? :)

                    • 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.

                      • 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?

                        • 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.

                          • 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!

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                    As someone who lives in the UK, some tracks are showing that aren't available to me, and vice versa. Not to mention everything is in dollars and not pound sterling. An option to choose which territory you're in would be great!

                                    • How does Crates make money?

                                      I'd like to know how Crates makes money, since there doesn't seem to be any subscription or license available. Is it free forever? If so, why? How is it funded? How is the data used?

                                        • Deleted Carts pop up after a while

                                          First of all, thank you so much for this awesome tool! I really enjoy discovering new releases and I couldn't imagine going back to plain Beatport.

                                          Now I noticed that after pressing the "Delete Cart" button, all of those carts pop up in the list - usually the day after. I accidentally created lots of them and now I only use like half of them.

                                          Is there any chance to make them disappear?

                                            Nils, could you check if these Carts you tried to delete are actually removed on the main Beatport site? Sounds like it might be a bug with Beatport.

                                            Does this only happen to certain carts?
