Where do you buy your tracks from?

Post by Rave » Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:30 am

Hi,

I am starting up a label and am trying to manage most of the distribution myself for the first few releases. I need to know where DJs buy there stuff from.

Besides Beatport where else do you buy your tracks from please?

Thanks

I'm not a DJ, but sites such as Juno, Audiojelly, Beats Digital are fairly popular (among many other sites).

I stopped buying CD's a long time ago, and ripped my entire CD collection. I didn't check out new music for ages. Then I discovered Beatport, and I'm a happy music shopper again! :D

I really enjoy Whatpeopleplay. Good music selection but a bit limited. Unfortunately I need to cross reference it to Beatport due to currency exchange rate. Just makes for a bit more work when purchasing.
