    Default How to DJ's get unreleased tracks and such

    So many tracks I love are unreleased/not on beatport or iTunes yet I hear DJs playing them out all the time. Do they just get them from the artists?

    When I am practicing and such I dont mind using a song I ripped from youtube but there is no way I would actually want to use them due to sound quality and the like. So other than ripping songs from youtube or soundcloud how do you obtain these tracks?

    A lot of artists on Soundcloud give out songs to there followers privately.

    Some guys even give out there beatport songs before they go on beatport.

    Ahh i figured there was some kind of exclusivity attached to it but I was hoping that was not the case.


    Just like my girlfriend wants me to spin for a party shes having and wants to hear trap and dubstep and so many trap songs just are not out there

    All of my promos come directly from the label or artist... Most labels promo their tracks a few weeks to few months before the release date.

    If only I were big enough to know who to call to get on a promo mailing list!

    Just a friendly warning guys, if anyone starts posting links to illegal music sources the banhammer will be swinging.
