  1. Import Text to Crate

    This is a bit more "out there" but might be useful for quickly creating crates from your current iTunes (or other) metadata.

    The idea would be to have an option to import a list of artists or labels and create a new crate from this. I haven't tried dumping a complete list of this data out of iTunes but I suspect it should be straightforward using existing applescripts. The tricky bit would be matching with actual artists/labels on beatport, as it would obviously be sensitive to slight differences in labelling and duplicate entries.

    Perhaps there would need to be some…

  2. Feature: populate shopping cart with tracks from CSV file (and/or spotify)

    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…

  3. Search Box Highlighted.

    Perhaps highlight the search box a little more. On a few occasions i've had trouble spotting where it is!

  4. Track Skipping Intervals

    It would be awesome to customize the amount of time a tracks skips when we press the left/right arrows. If we can't set the skip time to a specific length of our choosing, which would be preferable in my opinion, then maybe a few options would be adequate. 10 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute would be great options. Excellent work guys!

  5. Differentiate shortcuts for skipping to prev/next track vs skipping to prev/next UNPLAYED track (-James Fish)

    Havent logged into crates in a few months and surprised to notice that the up/down arrows skip to the next or previous unplayed tracks. Sometimes i like listening to a track more than once, or comparing it with the other tracks in its release.
    My suggestion: SHIFT+UP or SHIFT+DOWN skips to previous/next unplayed track. UP + DOWN (unmodified) increments by 1 in either direction regardless whether the next track has already been played or not.

  6. Please can you show a history of listened to tracks

    I found something great and then lost it and just couldn't find me way back to it, this would be really helpful!

  7. Add separate crates for Beatport Hype Charts

    Beatport Hype looks great, would be awesome to check it once in a while like "My Beatport" crate or "Inbox"

  8. Filter tracks by BPM

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

  10. 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
