    I have no issue with the site. It's pretty clean and not very cheesy. Your top navigation loads quickly but your slider is s...l...o...w and the image resolution on it is inconsistent. You might want to give an indication that some links take you off the site and into beatport.
    I'm using Firefox with no major plugins or add-ons so...

    Font size is a little hard to read for me in my 40s, other than that looks nice.

    I like it on first look but I don't like the blurred image in the background, makes my eyes drawn to it rather than the information, have you tried straight up black

    First thing, your "connect" section... I can't even see the buttons, it fades with the background.

    Second, your tabs on the top left, shouldn't be on the top left... They should be over or under that banner on the top. Because that always remains centered. Unlike the tabs on top, if someone has a big screen and the person is on your site with web browser full screen, everything will be centered EXCEPT the tabs. They'll be lost and alone on the top. You won't even realize they're there.

    or at least center it at the top.

    Third, I don't like the font/white on black. I don't know if it's the font that's too thin or the white on black, but I got a headache reading.
