    Default Beatport for hip-hop?

    Was wondering if theres a site out there where I could download hip hop i.e. Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples, labels like Stones Throw etc.

    Looking to start playing more proper hip hop for some upcoming gigs. Any where you guys recommend?

    id try going to the label themselves..

    http://www.stonesthrow.com/ sells mp3s... and if they dont have what you want they would be the first ones to point you in the right direction.

    with almost any kind of independently released music the best place to get it is the horses mouth.

    Sometimes Google can be your friend. I have a account with Emusic, I will browse and see what's out there, they have a really huge catalog of music, and all high quality files!

    I used to get some stuff off Amazon untill someone pointed out that not all their stuff is 320kbs, and I looked thru some recently downloaded stuff and realized they were right. Wasn't too long ago, maybe like a year or two ago, but maybe they changed.

    I'd say just use Itunes
