Beatport Pro subscribers can now play the full track back (for most tracks). Do you think it's possible to pull this over to crates? Thank you! :)3 votes
Something I love about the Beatport Desktop program is that you can drag and drop tracks from one cart to another. Would love for this site to have this feature. It will save a lot of navigation time thru menus.
I realize this would probably require a Beatport API change, but it would be totally awesome to be able to browse top 1000 instead of top 100 in a genre.
This is what crate digging is all about -- digging deeper! Especially useful for someone that just wants to dive deep into a totally new genre!15 votes
You have a floating rectangle a little north of the center of the page that has the potential to drive me insane if you don't remove it.
Some fixed position floating div, but I didn't look to deep at the dom to figure out what it was.
It persists through reloads, restarting browser, etc.1 vote
What's the possibility of supporting beatport playlists that can be used with beatport link? Unfortunately you can't access carts via Link so no cart access inside Rekordbox. Playlists is the direction they are shoving it and if I could add to playlists from Crates it would save a step of having to manually sync carts to playlists!3 votes
Beatport Link is not currently supported by Beatport API’s, which is how we power Crates.
Only Beatport can integrate with anything related to Link right now, but hopefully they make their Link API public in the future. Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you very much!1 vote
Don't have a new idea (yet) but i want to thank you for your good job!
Finally a site that i can see what track i already listen!
Thank you very much!
My full support from Greece!1 vote
Cant find or add tracks to the new crates when they are purchased.
We need to see the purchased history or library so we can trace artists,labels,songs what we loved. In that way crates will be more accurate.
if we have to wait for the api update from beatport, in the meantime,
we can maybe try automatically add songs to one of the 'my crates' folder (or sync with my crates folder and carts), in that way we will save the loved songs before it gets checked out and gone.3 votes
Is there a crates.co android app or am I missing something? It would be super useful. It's quite tedious to navigate the site through the smartphone browser.1 vote
It would be great to be able to put together a playlist for a gig in a crate, in the order you may want to play the tracks in, and see if the tracks fit the way you want them to before checking out.
Also, it would be great to be able to sort by each column. Basically the rekordbox functions of sorting and drag/drop to reorder tracks.4 votes
Thanks for the feedback, Julia – we’ll definitely keep this in mind for future updates. :)
Maybe it's because I'm old and my vision isn't what it used to be, but I don't think the playing track in the current list is distinct enough... looking for the pause icon over the album art is too hard to pick out, especially if you aren't looking at the screen while advancing through tracks. (Plus, sometimes the playing track is actually off screen because the scrolling doesn't catch up or match where it should be.) Can you highlight the whole role with some negative color so it's glaringly obvious where you are in the list?1 vote
Thanks for the feedback!
Currently the entire row goes orange if the track is playing (all the text goes orange). This way you can see what’s playing very easily across the whole table.
Does that help?
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.4 votes
Title says it all. Would be great to setup SSL/TLS and you can easily setup to auto-renew certs fairly easily. Better security on the web is always good.3 votes
https://crates.co/ works for us – are you having an issue accessing the site via https?
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.14 votes
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.)
Beatport Hype looks great, would be awesome to check it once in a while like "My Beatport" crate or "Inbox"1 vote
We’ve followed up with Beatport again to see if there are any changes to their API that would allow us to display Top 100 Hype charts on Crates.
Beatport’s public API hasn’t been developed for awhile, so it’s unlikely this will be possible. But we’ll let you guys know if we can make it happen!
I'm trying to get hard copies of 2000+ tracks from my spotify playlists, and searching for every track individually is proving extremely time-consuming. I'm currently trying to automate the search-and-add-to-cart workflow with UI automation like selenium, but it is error-prone and very fragile. It would be amazing if Crates.co could turn a CSV file into a populated shopping cart, by (A) searching for the track described in row X, (B) finding the best match for the given title/artist/duration, (C) add the track to my beatport shopping cart, and (D) provide a list of the tracks that couldn't be found or otherwise determined. Maybe with an options prefer Original mixes or Extended mixes, and checkboxes for requiring perfect matches for some fields (like Release/Album, duration, etc).
If this could directly connect to my spotify account, even better, but a file upload sounds like it would be easier to implement. And there are already ways to automatically create such a file corresponding to spotify playlists, using their web API.
Anyways, this would take all of the pain away from finding music to purchase, aside from the cost haha.
Thanks for your consideration!

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.12 votes
