    Default In need of resources for finding tracks to play at top 40 parties

    I'm mostly into dubstep, electro house, moombahton, and stuff like that. I have tons of different resources on the internet and can find a huge amount of new music in these styles all the time.

    I don't have sources to find music for top 40 style stuff, however, and need more of it due to the parties I'll be djing. I heard this track at a party last night, and everyone loved it, but I would have never found out about it through any of the music websites I visit. If anyone can help me out with places to visit that I'll hear about track releases in this style (besides Billboard), it would be really appreciated.

    Doesn't the fact that's TOP 40 mean that you can buy it just about anywhere?

    I might have worded it strange. Once I find a song I can find a place to buy it easily, but I'm looking for places similar to thissongissick.com that lets people know about new releases. And I don't really mean literal top 40, but stuff with the same pop kind of sound

    I go on local radio sites and find out what they've been playing for the entire day.

    Spotify - I use it for all genres. You can dig deep on Spotify.

    So if I wanted to find more music like the Cataracs, I would go to their page on Spotify, listen to a bunch of songs, then click through some of the similar artists, rinse, repeat.
