    Default How often do you add new music?

    Hey I got a couple questions for all you DJTTers

    How often do you add new music to your library? is it a constant process? One song a day? 25 songs month? 100 months a month?

    Once you get a song into your music do you keep it around and let it stand the test of time or do you just retire it? (This is probably a more elaborate answer so if you feel to inclined to outline the method that you use to filter your set lists please do so.)


    I usually take a couple days to collet some tunes and then spend an afternoon downloading them. I'm no pro but I try to contribute to the best of my ability. I usually rely on Djcity for my music but I'm starting a beatport account once my credit card gets passed on paypal.

    If I find a song that I like and I think other people might like, then I'll put it in. Simple.

    I'm always looking for that new 80s song or indie rock track.

    I honestly spend a couple weeks building and tuning a crate on beatport and juno. Then when it's around $60 or so, I buy it. Usually about every 3 weeks. I give myself a budget of about $20 a week for music, and I just find buying it "bi-monthly" if you will just works out for me.

    If a particular tune is banging and I need to show it off and I've visiting friends, patterns can be broken however.

    I shop whenever I think about it, and I buy when I get to around $50 worth of music that I know I really want. I don't bother trying to stay up to the minute, because I know I can't do that without getting tracks straight from producers…and I don't know enough of them for that to be effective.

    I retire tracks when I get sick of them, but I also try to keep things manageable. I have around 400-500 GB of music in my archive, and barely 250 songs on my laptop for DJing. Every now and then I'll remember a track and go dig it up from my archive or just listen through it for the heck of it, though I don't do that enough. There's at least one track that I own 4 legal copies of (1 on vinyl, 1 on a stamped CD, an mp3 and a flac) because I kept forgetting that I already owned it.
