Beatport Releases Top-Selling Genres by Year

Have you ever been interested in progression or regression of genre popularity over time?

You can stop wondering because BeatPort has kindly solved this mystery for you with a clean, color-coded line graph representing genre sales over the past 10 years from 2004 through 2014.

As you can see, Dubstep is the most popular genre in 2014. Oh, wait. I read that wrong.

Dubstep skyrocketed to popularity while peaking during 2011 (around the same time that Skrillex stopped producing the genre and trap came to the forefront of music), before plummeting into the least popular genre listed on the graph. Poor dubstep.

Coincidentally, Electro House and Progressive House have also taken a substantial fall along with House music.

What can we draw from this? Well, not much really. Can’t argue with science. But we do know that Deep House and Tech House are taking over the music world at a fast pace.







I like music. A lot.
