    Ive just been updating my wants list online. Ive got around 20 new releases on my mp3 list and I logged on to:
    breakbeat.co.uk/download
    beatport.com
    djdownload.com
    Card at the ready for some serious downloading action!!!

    So far I have found one release on beatport and its roughly the same cost as the full vinyl release.
    And I thought downloading was supposed to be the 'be all and end all'!!! :shrug:

    Any 1 else frustrated by this?

    No track on mp3 costs as much as vinyl. A quid, or a quid seventy five at most. What tracks were you looking for?

    Also - check out nu-urbanmusic.co.uk and the label sites for downloads.

    iYunes doensn't have the quality. Most of their stuff is 128 kbps. I always download 320kbps to DJ with and even that don't sound too hot:(

    It was Chook - Retrograde - Ff
    It was a beatport exclusive, so each tune cost £1.99. Baring in mind I get 10% off in HMV using a student card it works out only a tiny bit cheaper than the vinyl.
    I don't really want to have to subscribe to hundreds of
    different label websites but I will diffinately give NU: Urban a
    look. Cheers for that:2thumbs:

    The others I was looking for were:
    Bulletproof + Phase - Dark times part three - Cyanide
    Zero T + Survival - No more - Dispatch
    Subtle audio ep
    Spirit - Rendition - Inneractive
    Big Bud - White widow - Soundtrax
    Saburuko - Clinto's basement - Inside
    Raw Q - Caspian moon
    D Bridge - The gemini principle ep
    DJ Sly - The twilight zone - lowdown deep
    The upfull rockers - thong song
    DJ Panik - Super skank
    Dubrock - Muderah - Dubrock
    RA rmx
    + the other recent Digital soundboy tunes.

    Not a bad list - but you're right, not much of it up. That said your tunes will be up pretty soon. Digital Soundboy have all their tracks up on their website (I think).
