    Default When you purchase new music do you.....

    When you guys purchase new music do you buy what you like and what you think will work together or do you buy in relative key?

    When i buy music it's strange because the majority of it has zero relation apart from it is house/tech-house/techno..

    I just buy what ever track catches my attention and usually i have quite a few tracks i can mix in with it.

    I buy what I like and pay no attention to what key it is when I buy it.

    +1 to photo

    I listen to a bunch of tunes on beatport. This is usually a 2 or 3 day event. Couple hours a day.

    select 30-40 songs.

    Keep listening to the one after each other until I can't find anymore to remove from my cart.

    search for a few more if I cut alot.

    always listen to final bunch.

    Then I buy them.

    This is how i develop my "sound"

    I usually use djcity.com for my top 40 stuff, but this past couple of months I have restored to emusic because it seems to have what I would call "rare" files. Alot of tracks found on youtube have slight variations that make them unique and I find that emusic.com has alot of those. Very important if you have a sticky old lady about what she wants to hear. haha

    I buy what I like. Key is no worry and really shouldn't be. I couldn't imagine not buying a track because it was in a certain key.

    Whatever I can use to play at the club. Whether I like it or not. 50% of the time I do not like it. But it makes people dance, so I buy it an play it.

    I use to buy only songs I like, but that translated to empty dance floors at times.

    Time of day, Day of the week, Mood, scenery, Weather, Menstrual cycle, Ninja training, Wife, alcohol, Money.

    All of the above influence my purchases

    long story short. If I like I buy.
