    How is listening to music on Youtube bad, and learning about new artists/songs from Youtube?

    I use Soundcloud/Mixcloud too.

    He meant ripping the music from there.

    It would be SHYTE quality....

    No problem using it for inspiration etc.

    Oh no, not at all. I use Beatport, Soundcloud, and just other websites I stumble across where there would be free download that's fitting quality.

    Yeah, as a true DJ you should really buy your own tracks.. Unless artists have free promo downloads of songs they never release.. Then it's a different story. You want everything to be as legit as possible so you don't run into copyright issues with Soundcloud, etc.

    As long as there is a legal way to obtain a track, you can get away with getting it illegally. It's just common courtesy not to do it.

    iTunes got some really good old skool compilations of most genres... good way to get your collection up to speed quickly

    But agreed youtube / blogs / searching for top 100s blogs etc

    All DJs have to dig for music in one way or another. Try joining a record pool with some DJs who have a similar sound to what you are looking for.

    Find a good used music store in your area. Go in, tell them what you kind of music you like, ask for suggestions.
