    Default DJ Intelligence lists how to buy that music quickly?

    Is there any legal DJ music service where I can just buy chunks of my library in one big shot? Can I go anywhere and for $150.00 or $200 buy the entire DJ intelligence top 200?

    What about being able to buy all of the essential 50s songs?
    Then the 60's, 70s etc etc?

    Why exactly would you want to do this?

    You'll end up with a load of tunes that'll take an age to get to know, and you'll probably find you hate half of them, so they;ll be a waste of money.

    Spend the time, money and effort and do a proper job. Now that the bar for entry into 'DJing' is so low you live or die by your selection, and if you're just going to bulk buy records I can't see it being a good thing ...

    If you can't be bothered listening to songs and putting together a decent collection then you're doing this for all the wrong reasons.

    building up a decent collection from scratch is the fun part

    When it comes to getting a selection to load into Serato and learn how to use my V7's with I want to be very selective.

    When it comes to having the list of songs drunk wedding guests want to have I just want to buy them and get it over with.

    As far as having a bunch of crap and not knowing what it is. I bought THOUSANDS of CDs in bulk and imported them using a robot. Man was that a mistake. On the plus side I have 17 Alabama albums. :eek:

    Anyway, having such a giant collection of legal music is awesome and empowering, but also a giant headache. My plan once I get done importing it is to put it on a separate drive and cherry-pick from it. Grab the ones I know I need off it and leave it loaded separately as a backup... Something I can dig into for requests but not something I have to wade through.

    I don't think this service exists in a 'legal' way.

    I don't know, I've been building a collection for a bit over a year now and I still buy compilations off beatport as much as singles...they are a very cost effective way of getting a bit of new music...I do listen to the tracks off of the website for the most part..
