    This will help out tons and tons of people. I picked up my way of music searching 2 -3 years before I started djing.

    Now I have a bunch of different sites I scour.

    same here. I try to steer clear of such a mainstream list of music. I know that sounds stupid and hipster, but I find greater value in sharing songs that I like, know that others will like, and that is new to myself/others as a dj.

    Same here, I dig a lot and search for those underground bangers that catch a crowd off guard and get them more amped then just playing the regular hits. Although there are some songs on beatport that I get just for pure banger status, usually if Im following said artist already and they made a sick sick jamma.

    Im not on about searching on Beatport specifically (And i find a few good tunes on Beatport, without discarding it out of hand, just because its beatport) But the method which he describes-Find labels, remixes, other tunes etc
