    Where is a good place to get DnB Mp3's for DJing? I am looking to get into spinning DNB aside from the usual electro house. I've mostly been buying tracks off of beatport in the past but wondering if there is something better for drum and bass?

    I don't spin vinyl, just cds... btw

    definately beatport over breakbeat no doubt about it.. players are better, layouts a lot nicer, so easy to scroll through tunes.. always got the new releases sometimes before other mp3 sites

    however on junodownload 320's are 1.30 instead of 1.50 which most 320s are on beatport and breakbeat.. but juno dont always have everything

    just gotta look around mate

    I actually bought some mp3's from Trackitdown the other week and they turned out to be a lot cheaper than anywhere else I looked (DNBA, Juno, Boomkat, Bunch of Cuts etc.). Two albums were £9 each but got them for £15 at Trackitdown.

    I find DNBA is better than beatport as beatport does not stock much of the older tracks.

    Beatport sometime get exclusives.

    For example:

    Current Value - Evac/Mothan - LB Recordings

    They've had it there since Feb, but the vinyl isn't out until Monday.
