By now you’ve surely heard the news: change is in the air at Beatport. Specifically, we’re rolling out a brand-new version of the site: new features, new design, and a new platform that’s going to make Beatport faster, smarter, and more flexible.

Not long ago, we launched a Private Beta, and we’ve been hard at work addressing feedback and folding suggestions into the site. This week, we’re opening up the Beta and giving our community the first shot at getting a piece of the action.

We’re releasing codes every hour on beta.beatport.com. Check back often, as they go quick! Plus, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more chances to get in to the #newbeatport. We’re also giving away invites each day to people who purchase on the site. We’ll email random users each day with access codes.

So what’s new? Read on to find out.
