If I work with Beatport, Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, and/or Traxsource directly, do I have to deal with this?

Yes. If you were to work with Beatport, Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, and/or Traxsource directly you would have to fill out tax paperwork and documentation and the same rules and regulations discussed here would apply. Being that they are USA based companies, if you are located outside of the USA, you would have to fill out at W8-BEN and further have to deal with the same withholding, treaties etc.

Further, if there are distributors that are dealing with Beatport, Traxsource etc., they too are in the same position you are in.

Lastly, if there is a UK distributor paying to you if you are in Spain and/or Russia, there are tax legalities not too different from the USA to your country. Every country has tax treaties between each other and thus some funds may be withheld but collected at a later time based on the situation and agreement between countries.
