BeatStats has revealed the biggest-selling dance acts of the past twelve months.

Using data from global electronic music platform Beatport, the artist, track and label ranking service crowned Dutch DJ-producer Oliver Heldens as the biggest-selling dance act of the year, followed by David Guetta and Kosovan DJ Regard.

Others dance acts to feature in the top ten include Disclosure, Duke Dumont, Meduza, Alok and Gorgon City (you can see the full BeatStats list here).

Oliver Heldens also scored the best-selling dance track of the last twelve months with 'Turn Me On' alongside Riton and Vula, while Dutch label Spinnin Records - which is owned by Warner - bagged the top dance label spot, followed by Ministry of Sound and Virgin EMI.

Liverpool duo Camelphat sit comfortably at the top of BeatStat's all-time/all-genres rankings with four tracks in the top 100 list, followed by Purple Disco Machine and Green Velvet.

Earlier this year Beatport marked their sixteenth anniversary by announcing their 259 millionth download.

Oliver Heldens and Gorgon City are due to play Creamfields 2021, while Camelphat will head out on their biggest ever tour in March and April - tickets here.
