  1. 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.)

    • Blacklisting of labels and releases

      Every now and then, there are releases with a lot of tracks in it that I want to erase from my feed as a whole without having to listen to them in order to "check" them.

      A similar thing is missing for labels. Some labels should not appear in a feed even if a crate's artist appears on them.

      It would be good to have a button available when hovering over a release or label (in the same window as the crates) that will add this to a blacklist.

        Hi Nils!

        We’re planning on adding a “Mute” feature in the future for labels or artists.

        While this wouldn’t allow you to hide a specific release, it would allow you to hide tracks by an entire label or artist.

      • 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!

        • reset played track status or remove check mark

          a way to remove the check mark of a track that has already been played.... i can think many reasons why you might want to reset the played status of the track so you can re listen again another day more carefully ... maybe there is a way of doing this already?? i cant find it

          sometimes i just leave the player runing through all the tracks in the collection and preview new stuff while doing other things... then another day i want to be able to listen to all again to purchase the ones ive liked but i get…

          • 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.

                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?

              • Feature: Add Support for "Beatport DJs"

                I really LOVE Beatport DJs, its the only reason why I still go to Beatport at all instead of using Crates exclusively.

                If you're not familiar with it, Beatport DJs allows you to follow Beatport users who have created profiles in the Beatport DJ system. If you're following someone and they release a new chart, it appears in your feed. I've been building up the DJs (all of whom are generally producers and want more avenues to get people to listen to their tracks) I follow and now get four to five new charts every week, which provides a great…

                  I’ve asked Beatport if the list of DJs you follow is accessible via the API, but it doesn’t appear so. I’ll update here if we here back from Beatport.

                  Building our own DJ follow system would be an alternative to consider, but it’s a bit messy considering Beatport differentiates between Artists (producers) and DJs.

                  In the mean time, you can easily access any chart on Beatport in Crates. If your Beatport Chart URL is this: https://pro.beatport.com/chart/springtime/343296

                  Then you can access it on Crates by putting that last number in this URL, like this:

                  http://crates.co/chart/slug/343296

                    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!
