Interview: Jonas Temple, Beatport

Sat 20.06.2009

DJsounds sits down for a chat with Beatport boss Jonas Temple on sunny South Beach, Miami.

In this interview Jonas speaks about everything from their annual pool parties, held at The National Hotel, to the development of digital dance music, artists and labels.

He also supplies sound advice on backing up digital content and storing/organising your downloads.

With a background in graphic design and DJing, CEO Jonas started the Denver-based online download store in 2004 out of a necessity for digital and a passion for music.

Additional footage features both DJ Sneak and Mark Knight slamming it down live for Beatport in Miami. Words: LRC
