    Invest time and money in listening to tracks and buying the ones you like. There's your start. The more time and money you invest, the more MASSIVE your library will get.
    Or if you don't particularly care about the quality of the library, but more about how MASSIVE it is, join a record pool.

    The real question is why would you want a massive library?

    I am always trying to trim mine down and getting rid of stuff I don't use.

    Your best bet is quality over quantity. Dont just download tracks for the sake of it. As a DJ your job is to act as a filter for music, It's down to your taste and thats what defines you as a performer. Just put effort into looking for music and downloading tracks as you find them. Your music collection can be however big you like, you'll still only be playing for probably 1-2h in front of a crowd.

    Yeah don't focus on getting a huge library. Learn the songs that you have. It will make your job so much easier.

    it takes years to collect a decent amount of good tunes. especially if you´re gonna concentrate on several genres. take your time, get to know the tunes you have and don´t get yourself in a rush!
