    Default New dj with questions

    I am new to the dj scene. I always loved djing and decided to make a serious effort into learning the art. I find myself running into a problem. How do I go about getting a good collection of music? I'm in my 30's so there is a lot of old school stuff hip-hop and house i would love to have also stuff I won't remember until I hear it. Any sites that is recommended or should I look to buy a HD from a dj selling their music?

    Ebay! I have bought loads of good old music in vinyl and CD format.

    You need to have a rough idea what you're searching for. Or perhaps just "old school house" might bring up some stuff.

    And Amazon, has used things for sale. Try them too for old CDs etc.

    Regards

    I get all my music from Youtube channels, like TrapCity for Trap, Spinning Records for EH, UKF for Dubstep, and most of the time I listen on Pandora so whenever I hear a song I could work with, I save it on my notepad.

    Tell me you only use youtube for inspiration and you don't actually use youtube rips when you DJ?

    http://www.classichousetracks.com/ - good old skool house blog

    btw buying a HD filled with music is pretty much illegal. just saying.

    The best way to discover old music is to youtube tunes you remember and listen to the recommendations. Also, wikpediing (?) different labels (start with Strictly Rhythm for house) can be quite helpful.

    What kind of hip hop are you into?
