    Default How do YOU obtain your music?

    Personally, I'm a part of ZipDJ, a $50 a month record pool service.

    I'm still pretty new, and am looking for maybe alternatives. I've always been told record pools would be the best deal financially, however sometimes lacking in song selection.

    So my question to you all is, How do you get your music?
    Any feedback is thankful.

    Juno and beatport, when I can get a deal. If not I go for the independent sites and shops. Boomkat, bleep, Rubadub, Surus, Phonica, Hardwax, and chemical which isn't independent. And if I travel I always hit up a local vinyl shop.

    i used to do a lot of beatport digging. then i found some blogs specific to various genres i liked. recently, i found that spotify is actually a pretty good place to discover new music and it let's you dig pretty deep.

    right now i feel like i have too much music so i stopped getting new stuff and started getting deeper into the tunes i already have, which is enough for many, many lifetimes. i have cds i still haven't opened and about 10,000 records i haven't listened to lol!

    I post a thread "recommend me some ____" and buy whatever people here tell me to

    In all seriousness emusic is my go-to stop for music; I search on beatport and juno since the interfaces are nicer but I buy for 49-69 cents a song; the only drawback is you have to subscribe, but the money for your subscription goes to your song purchases so as long as you buy your allotment every month, it's totally worth it. But if I was playing out all the time and had to have the latest top forty, hip hop, electro, etc, I would probably go the record pool route.

    But my favorite way to acquire music is still the vinyl record store

    With all of that said, I also use DJTunes. Is it smarter in the long run, to research compilations or dig dig dig *(Personal Opinion of course)

    Traxsource, Juno and sometimes iTunes... given up on Beatport, too much chaff gets in the way.
