    Default Music Sites

    Could somebody help me? I'm looking for music sites apart from Beatport which show the Bpm value of a track. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Uh... can't you just use Traktor to find the BPM?

    Yes! But i'm putting together some mixes and found some spaces where i need tracks of a certain Bpm. So would be good to search for recent tracks with the right bpm.

    Ahhh. I've found some on Soundcloud, but there's nothing really more comprehensive than Beatport as far as I know.

    I'm guessing this is probably a dance music mix? Most of the sub-genres stick to a pretty consistent BPM range. House = 120s. Electro/House = 130s. Trance= 140s, etc etc. Just get in the general range and then tinker with the BPM in your mix. I'd say most songs you can get away with a +/- 5 bpm adjustment if you really need to.

    DJ City lets you search by BPM. However, you have to join their record pool. 3 months for $90 isn't a bad deal though.

    Just figure out your genres mate. DNB/Jungle/DrumStep 165-185BPM, Breaks 125-140BPM, DubStep 140BPM, House 120-135BPM, etc. The only genres that tend to have a wider range are Funky Breaks, HardCore, and Trance. Utilize that pitch fader and keylock to stay creative with your mixes.

    On a side note:
    The best shoppes Ive found are Beatport, Juno.co.uk (junodownload.com), and soundcloud.com

    Thanks for your replies! The problem i find with most sites is the lack of real cutting edge tracks. I'm having to buy loads of vinyl and rip them! It seems to take ages for certain tracks to get a digital release sometimes never!
