    Default Free music sources..?

    Apologies if this has been covered before but I couldn't find any previous threads on the subject so...

    Best sources for free music? And I mean music that the artist is giving free downloads. Is there an easier way than trawling through Soundcloud and the like, something that collates the give-aways? I'm in search of a time saving method..

    Personally I think searching (digging, sifting in old terms) is part of the passion that goes with DJing.
    Searching for stuff is time well spent.

    The more time i save the more time i waste getting nothing done.

    But in answer to your question, http://rcrdlbl.com/ give free stuff out.

    Like karlos said, digging is half the fun! also, you might wanna add creative commons to your searches, a lot of the artists that give their music away will distribute this way
    Acer E5 i7 2TB 16GB ~ 512GB SSD ~ WIN 10 ~ TSP 2.11 ~ AUDIO 6 ~ X1 ~ DN-X1600 ~ X1 ~ SPECTRA ~ TWISTER ~ ATH-PRO500 MK2 ~ AT2020 MIC

    Searching for stuff is more fun. I tend to go for the really unknown stuff, that has like 20 listens. BUT it still has to be good.

    Heres a good tip: Search on youtube "Insert genre name here" Promotion.
    Then search, click filter up at the top and select channels, Usually there's shit tons of free downloads and most of it is good stuff.
    (Make sure it is relatively unknown, you won't be getting any free downloads from UKF for example)
    Find an artist on the channel that you like, check there soundcloud if they got any free downloads that are fit, grab em'. Then move on to the people he is following or his followers.

    This also gives you your own sound, so you're not playing the same junk everyone else plays.
