As 2016 winds down, everyone is releasing their end of the year lists and rankings. We’ve already done a few of our own, as have other blogs and even a bunch of curators on social media have done some, just for kicks. While a lot of these lists are subjective, there are a few that are based on metrics like sales and streams like this Best Of 2016 ranking from Beatport.


They released three categories: Favorite Artist, Best Selling Tracks and Best Selling Labels. Artists were based on fan votes, while the other two were based on sales. There was a top 10 list in each category for each genre sold on their site, including dubstep, tech house, drum n bass, and more.
