    Default Survey: How do you discover new music?

    I'm curious to know how other people are finding new music. I set up a survey (didn't use the poll tool because it isn't precise enough) here:
    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DJ_Discovery_DJTT

    I'll post the results once enough people have responded.

    EDIT: The survey is only five questions so it's quick

    Same as any other person. Find an artist you like, get there songs, find similar artists, see who they like, what record labels there on. ETC.

    The wording of the last two questions sucked, but I think the way you want it answered.

    The wording is, "how often do you use sites with charts to find/download music" when I think what you meant to say was "how often do you use a site's charts to find/download music" At least, that's how I answered it.

    Thanks for taking it though guys! Hopefully in the next couple of days we'll have more respondents.

    Done.

    I usually have some Mixcloud uploads playing in the background throughout the day so that's one place I hear new stuff, then I use Soundcloud and Beatport. I stick away from charts, finding stuff randomly are where the real gems are.
