    Default Which Dj music pool is the best ?

    Hey guys,

    I want to sign up for the DJ music pools, to get new releases etc, quickly and with full proof that the music is legal. I'm looking for the one that has great hip hop/r&b collection, as well as good house/electro releases. I found few ones' that i think are pretty good. They are:
    - djcity.com,
    - zipdj.com,
    - digitaldjpool.com,
    - exclusivegrooves.com,
    - franchiserecordpool.com,
    - starfleetmusic.com.
    So my question is the following: in your opinion which one would u consider the best, or one of the best? Maybe you tried few of this, and think one definitely stands out out of all of them?
    The help would be greatly appreciated !

    Thx for your time

    I like DJCity because they usually get stuff fast and feature many mixes of the same tune. They also offer instrumentals and 'pellas of songs too.

    From what i heard, djcity is the best.....however just wanted to check maybe there is something else out there....

    The cdpool is interesting however I didn't find a lot of hip hop there....plus it's UK, I live in Canada, it would be great for techno music, but for hip hop ( which is the mostly played genre here) it lacks the tracks.

    Thanks for the quick responses thought!

    If you're looking for straight hip-hop with some mainstream then check out cicana.com. They get some good stuff plus hip-hop remixes (like luda on a rihanna track rather than a dance version of airplanes).

    I was there for a bit and got some good stuff. Sometimes I join for a month, grab what I want, then cancel. Horrible, I know =)

    i had djcity and it was cool...but i didnt want to sound like the rest of the dj's playing nothing but edits and mush ups. Im looking at zipdj.com its a bit pricey but it can be worth it in the long run. I just wish i could be part of a free pool being that Im a working dj.

    Ohh wow, zipDj is out of the question now....I didn't even see that....this is why u need to read everything carefully...
    About djcity, unfortunately, yes, djcity isn't very original, the problem is, that clubs in Canada (most of them) aren't very original as well...and I am aiming to dj'ing at a club....I actually went to few of the clubs, not so long ago, and I knew every single song, except some Reggae, that they played....it's kinda sad, because there are so many songs that aren't made popular by damn radios, and they are wicked....but I remember one dj tried to do his thing, and I remember the floor wasn't moving....than he switch to damn, mainstream, and everyone started dancing and having fun...it's sad in my opinion. However that's how it is here.....
    Also, whitelabel.net will be perfect since I have serato.

    Thx for your time guys, appreciated!

    You guys do realize the whole point of a record pool is to break new songs right? @StephanV - that would kinda of defeat the purpose of it even being a DJ pool correct? You have to give a review of songs if you're a Club DJ - therefore what are you going to do? Just listen to the songs yourself then guess how a club would react to it?

    I'm a member of zipDJ - so I believe I have a tiny clue of what I'm talking about.
