Beatport is celebrating its tenth birthday and to coincide with their celebrations, the SFX-owned company has been divulging some interesting facts about dance music sales.

Did you know UK producer Mark Knight has the record for the longest time spent at number 1? A whopping 38 days with his Florence & The Machine remix. Or, did you know that Deadmau5 has the biggest selling track of all time; a remix of Burufunk and Carbon Community’s ‘Community Funk‘.

Feast your eyes on the graphics below which also gives you an interesting breakdown of genre sales by year; just checkout the line for Dubstep – clearly life imitating art with a massive drop. And it sure looks as if Electro is making a comeback too.
