Beatport Music Awards 2011 Winners


On March 27th Beatport celebrated the fourth annual Beatport Music Awards. The awards were broken down into three categories: sales-based, community choice, and staff picks. Top tracks by genre were determined entirely by sales and in the Community Choice categories, over 10,000 votes were received.
