Where is the best place to buy mp3 from..im new to this game cheers
beatport.com fails to show up with that, thats my fav site at the mo
edit: well not till the second page
Good and cheap sites:
More expensive sites:
I quite like Track it Down..
Nice site to browse around.
How can you say breakbeat.co.uk is more expensive than beatport.com
I have always found beatport to cost more.
There wav handling charges are a joke!!!
ITunes, probably the cheapest option but there m4a files
iTunes is very cheap but the files are also at a lower bit rate. (often 128kbs instead of 320kbps).
Also because they are DRM protected it can be difficult to move them around.
For example I use Traktor Scratch and it wont play tunes brought from iTunes as this counts as copyright even though it is on the same computer.
Itunes is not an option for a serious listener - 128 is bollocks. Definitely not an option for a DJ.
Beatport.com is good for general dnb.
Breakbeat.co.uk has almost all the new releases and is the Itunes of dnb.
Nu-Urbanmusic.co.uk has excellent jump-up/ragga tunes.
Track it down
Play.com are the cheapest
Beatport or TrackItDown, standard. Beatport has a bigger back catalogue and gets more exclusive tracks, so I go with Beatport. TID is good too though, if they're on both I don't care which I buy from.
DNBA downloads also gives you the option to download the song up to 5 times, which is really good. If you have multiple computers or ever lose a track, it's very handy.
Itunes is garbage for dnb. The quality is crap and not 320, nobody wants that DRM shit, and the selection is shit. Most labels aren't on there. Itunes for dnb is like only buying your dnb selections from Walmart.
