Beatport Reveals Deadmau5 & Mark Knight As Top Selling Artists Of All Time In Most Recent Data Release

As the Denver, Colorado online music store continues to be a central landing spot for new original and remixed tracks in dance music, it certainly continues to plow through the online marketplace. Beatport, the SFX-owned digital music retailer, has opened its databases to Mixmag this month, revealing some interesting information regarding acquired data surrounding artist performance on the influential music platform.

Toronto's own deadmua5 secured quite the few "all-time" stats, earning the spot as its top-selling artist of all time, its top-selling track of all time (a remix of ‘Community Funk’) and further garnering the most number one singles to his name.

British producer Mark Knight, however, broke the streak as Beatport’s second highest selling artist of all time and a fifth place spot in terms of overall number ones. His 2011 remix of “You’ve Got The Love” ranks the longest running number one (at 38 days), with UK dance music label Toolroom Records representing 20% of Beatport’s ten top-selling tracks of all time.

The detailed findings have identified the genres of "house" and "tech house" as two of the most consistent sellers across their ten-year timeline, with the sounds dominating its top-selling tracks of all time.

But what about the festival-grabbing big-room sound you ask? Well, it remains otherwise front of house with a whopping 50% of its recurring number one artists collecting an average of eight number ones each.

Surprisingly, only four of Forbes highest earners made the cut for the overall top-sellers list, signifying a definite discrepancy between the industry’s highest earners.
