Beatport gets new and improved next week

Just because Beatport is already the premier digital download service in the world for DJs and electronic-music enthusiasts doesn't mean it can't get better. Just got word that as of next Wednesday, the new and improved Beatport will be available to feed the world the best in dance and electronic sounds with even greater ease than before. Improvements include a new, optimized user interface, better-quality preview samples, artwork embedded right in your MP3s and lots more. The whole list of improvements, as well as a sweet, slick little Flash movie intro, can be found at, and you can check it all out live as of Wednesday, January 21.
