I've got homies who worked in the Denver office. "Worked" past-tense being the operative word.

SFX, the dance music juggernaut that acquired Beatport in February, is axing teams that weren’t making money.
They only gave them 10 months.

Here today gone tomorrow, just like the music. That's what happens though when you don't care about the product you're selling and only the revenue.

I feel sorry for the next team of monkeys they bring in too.

Ha, that would've been a neat headline if they didn't send someone out to fire the SF crew:

"Beatport Burns to Ground After Xmas Layoffs"

Poor Beatport

That's what I was saying... Poor Beatport as in they got bought out and people got fired.

Meh, a 10 year severance package would be pretty good, should easily keep you going until spring, might actually be nice to have some holidays during er...the holidays.

Eh, am I the only one who's feeling totally indifferent? It's a bit dickish to fire people before Christmas, but honestly..? Did anyone expect them not to fire anyone? Aaaanyone..?

Rather than complaining they got fired before Christmas, they should be happy they managed to keep their jobs this long.
