    Can some people comment on record pools? I don't use them and I am unfamiliar with the good/popular ones...

    I use beatport (through finding artists and branching out from there,) word of mouth and a thread on Bodybuilding.com.

    then buy them on beatport after a week of sitting in my cart

    I always have Shazam on my homescreen on my Android. Anytime I hear a dope song, I immediately try to get the tag. It seems very simple, but if you are constantly doing this for awesome tracks you hear, you will quickly find your library growing with some serious gems!

    i love beatport and visit the site daily and fill my cart with tunes that ill listen to over and over on sample before buying usually once i can find a discount code on the web

    soundcloud mixes are excellent to find tracks within mixes then onto beatport to buy

    mixmag mixes on fridays on their live youtube stream also display track listings so i hunt them down too

    djcity is good for the content thats more commercial and club oriented. i pool money together with a few friends to get access to the shared account. its a record pool for a record pool.

    but if I'm really searching for music i'll listen to podcasts. These are some of my favorites right now;

    Also follow all the producers, acts, DJ's, labels etc on Twitter - and look at who they follow.

    I know hardwax.com features a lot of rereleases from the 70s-90s. Check out the Disco and House sections for some good classic stuff.

    I really like SoundCloud the best for discovering tunes & rare bootlegs. I don't really like to follow the Top10 or 100 charts on sites like beatport, etc. -- Every DJ has access to those tracks (not saying that the music is bad).

    I'd rather be known for a unique sound than someone who has all the current hits. That being said, it's great to see what's charting so you can find edits/bootlegs of those tracks, or create your own. If the tunes aren't free to download on SoundCloud, Beatport & Juno Records have been my go-to places to purchase music. I'm also really liking the new Beatport application for Mac.

    If you could put www.songdrop.me on there that would be great, a free song is sent to your email once a week from a new artist, were planning on growing into a bigger tool for music discovery. Thanks!

    sometimes I'll scroll through http://www.1001tracklists.com they have lists of most the popular sets out now and then you can find the songs and try and track them down.

    I won't lie I was never a huge fan of the old beatport setup, but with the new beatport pro app i listen there a lot very easy to scroll through songs like listening to records and skip tracks ect.
