EDM Wikia has a set style that should be followed in order to accurately document all things EDM.

Record Labels:

Title of record label
250px
Caption: Don't need to use, unless there is something odd with the logo (i.e. Spinnin' Deep's logo has the background from Show Me Love by Sam Feldt)
Label information
Parent companyIndependent, unless the label is a sublabel or an imprint of an existing label.
FoundationYear founded, include month and day if it can be located by The person who founded it, or the company who founded it.
DefunctYes (if the label has stopped releasing music, i.e. Quintino's label Supersoniq). If not, leave blank. by not used
DistributorWho markets this label's releases? i.e. Spinnin' Records distributes Showtek's Skink record label.
GenresWhat genres of music do they release? Put these genres each in links using [[]]
Country of originWhat country is that label based out of?
LocationWhat city/town is that label based out of?
WebsitesIf the label has their own self-titled website (i.e. spinninrecords.com), list it first. Then list any other websites the label has.

Using pro.beatport.com, record labels should be created as follows:

  1. Releases are listed in chronological order with the most recent releases at top.
  2. For each year, make a header stating the year and list all the releases of that year into a sortable table. For example, say in 2016 a label releases 2 songs and in 2015 they release 1.  You would use this format: 

2016

  • Column 3: Use this column for Song Artist.
  • Column 4: Use this column for Song Key.
  • Column 5: Use this column to insert a Beatport preview link/Soundcloud link.


Here is the code for a blank table: 
<div class="toccolours mw-collapsible mw-collapsed">
{| border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" class="article-table sortable" style="margin: 0px auto; width: 100%;"
|-
! scope="col" style="width: 11%; height: 40px; text-align: center;"|Cover Art (84px)

▪ Song Title<br /><span style="color: gray; font-size: 8pt; background-color: rgb(44,44,44); padding: 5px; margin-left: 5px; border-radius: 3px;">Mix Info</span>

| style="text-align:center;"|[[File:Beatport_preview.png|center|92px|link=https://embed.beatport.com/player/?id=SONGID&type=track]]
|}
</div>

If the title of a song and its mix info overflows, put breaks in between each line, like this:

▪ Getaway
Gareth Emery
& Ashley Wallbridge Remix
:▪ Getaway<br /><span style="color: gray; font-size: 8pt; background-color: rgb(44,44,44); padding: 5px; border-radius: 3px;">[[Gareth Emery]] </span><br /><span style="color: gray; font-size: 8pt; background-color: rgb(44,44,44); padding: 5px; border-radius: 3px;">& [[Ashley Wallbridge]] Remix</span>
1. If a release contains only one song, label the release as the song.  (Bazaar [Official Sunburn Goa 2015 Anthem - KSHMR & Marnik)
SONG/TITLE ARTIST KEY BEATPORT PREVIEW

▪ Bazaar

2. If a release contains multiple songs (see the example below), list the title of the release, and indent to indicate each track.
SONG/TITLE ARTIST KEY BEATPORT PREVIEW

3. If a release date for a song on that record label has been announced, go to the unreleased/upcoming tracks section and place it there.  To format this:
  1. If there are multiple upcoming tracks, put the track that will come out first on the top.
  2. List the artist, the song, and the date it comes out into a sortable table.  
  3. Include a countdown to the date.  Songs are almost always released on Beatport at 13:00:00 UTC. So if a song comes out December 9, 2175 at 13:00:00 UTC you would write
{{Template:Countdown |time = December 9 2175 13:00:00 |zone = UTC}}

And this would be the result: 

Upcoming/Unreleased Tracks

SONG/TITLE ARTIST RELEASE DATE
  • Song
Artist December 9 ()
  • Song
Artist December 15 ()

Wherever you can find a biography and/or picture of them, create an article about them. For spelling, use Beatport's artist link to correctly spell artist's names.

Tracklists:

Tracklists should be created using a table with the following headings. If a track was played with another track (i.e. if someone played Toulouse with Animals), then use the next row to fill out the data for that track and use w/ for the track number.)  In table properties, leave the Width and Height blank.  This will ensure the table autosizes to compensate for the length of names.

If the artist, song title, or record label are not confirmed (i.e. Don't Stop by Bounce Inc. might be released on Playbox), underline the uncertain part.

Track Number Timestamp (IF AVAILABLE) Artist Song Label
01 HH:MM:SS Artist name Song title Record Label
02 HH:MM:SS Nicky Romero Toulouse Spinnin'
w/ HH:MM:SS Martin Garrix Animals Spinnin'
03 HH:MM:SS Bounce Inc. Don't Stop Playbox
