    Has anyone looked at www.jetgroove.com
    They're trying to sell mp3s from shitloads of big name dnb, and plenty of unsigned without permission.

    They claim to be in the UK but I doubt that they actually are. Just thought I'd spread the word so anyone visiting this board can check if their stuff is up there.

    This site has got to go!

    Couldnt find any decent dnb there, only 2 unknown tunes came up when I searched for dnb. What signed artists you seen on there? :shrug:

    They aren't actually selling them though ;)

    They are listed but not available to buy

    Most the dnb is listed as blues on there
    Still wack that they have it all listed when they don't have licenses for any of it

    I've seen some Nightwalker tracks up on there, and I know Nightwalker hasn't given his permission to go up on that site, so I'm betting it's almost definitely not legitimate.


    The fact that a lot of the tracks are labeled as blues would also lead me to think that perhaps whoever's running the site is trying to flog loads of streamripped mp3s from somewhere like bassdrive... Now that, while being goddamn cheeky, WOULD be funny to see.


    Just thought I'd note these two things:


    That means they fall within UK copyright law. Should be interesting to see what kind of dim view trading standards takes on this situation, because even if they're actually purchasing the vinyls and CDs that these songs come on, as they're duplicating the tracks from their original copy and not selling the original, they're thereby not passing on artist royalties and as such could be in line for a WHALLOPING payout to every single artist of whom a record has been sold by them.


    I'd like to ring them up, posing as a producer from a label and quiz them a bit about their "licensing" methods. Very interesting. I might pretend to be Nightwalker if he lets me :D
