    Default Where to buy older "classics"... electronically?

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for places online that sell electronic versions of older tunes/classics. I'm on about stuff from the 90's -

    • Acid house / rave / Hacienda/Shelly's type stuff from early 90s
    • Classic trance from 1996 - 2001 (Gatecrasher, Cream etc.)

    I have a lot of the stuff on vinyl but the quality of ripping it is not great. Ideally, I'm looking for 320kbs +

    Its possible to find some stuff on Beatport but thats the more commercial stuff, the rarer tunes are not there.

    Anyone looked into this type of music before, any ideas on where to find it, if it actually exists?

    If you have them on vinyl the best bet is to rip them. Or maybe look for CDs that have the tracks on then you can rip a decent digital copy of the track from the cd?

    What's the issues with ripping? What are your main issues there? Maybe getting help with that will be better for you?

    The issue with ripping from vinyl are - time, quality, reliability.

    It takes a great amount of effort to rip a vinyl track to a very high quality. Even then, i find that it is not always reliable (i'm talking Traktor beatgrids, loops etc.)

    If I could find a good quality mp3 version of the full track (release, not a rip) then I am happy to spend money on it.

    I'd check out compilations from Itunes... like http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sta...l./id473901023 has some of what you're looking for. When you buy the compilation the songs are much cheaper than 99c. I've heard the quality is equal to 320kbps so they should be fine for DJ'ing, though I don't know from experience.

    I've had fairly good results using the new iTunes Match feature in iTunes.

    Pay £20 for a years subscription.
    Upload all your vinyl rips & dodgy old low bit rate mp3s to the cloud.
    See how many of them the iTunes store finds matches for.
    Download 256 kbps AAC's of the ones it matches.

    I've managed to match / upgrade enough tunes to make it worthwhile.

    Also, if you've ever downloaded any tunes from Serato's whitelabel.net website. I've had quite good results matching the 32kbps audio files that play in iTunes. (High quality version's only play in Itch or SSL). So i've been able to replace these with good quality AAC's.

    problem is most of the labels no longer release tracks so you can't ask them directly... But I have had some luck on djdownload with 2000ish nu school breaks and hard trance, I don't really like trance from that era so never looked, but the seem to have the the oldest catalogue with some gems, but most releases were vinyl only in those days and no one thought to rip them until they had noticably degraded.

    there's a decent matchup between that list of tunes and my old vinyl collection too i've just been buying tracks on mp3 that i have on vinyl when i see them. one i just can't find *anywhere* is "Odyssey To Anyoona" that i see u have too. may be worth buying some 2nd hand cd compilations on ebay or something if u can find unmixed ones?

    the "iTunes Match" match feature sounds cheap... surely someone could just find illegal rips of tunes, upload those to itunes match and then download a legal copy?

    What an absolute tune! I noticed Nick Warren has been closing his sets with it again recently, 18 yrs after its release! I think that list also contains the cheesy vocal version, please ignore that.

    Just noticed another on too...please forgive me for including Alice Deejay - Better Off Alone on a list of 'classics'!

    The dance music from the 90's was unbelievably good. Its quite sad that it was around before the digital music explosion although the other side of that is it helps it keep that fresh, underground feel that i relate so much to the 90's.
