I am a vinyl lover but if sale of mp3s is bringing more money into the scene by getting new customers (people who normally illegally download there dnb tunes) rather than just making people who would normally buy vinyl change to digital then its all good.

There's so many distinct advantages to both vinyl and cd that I highly enjoy playing with both mediums nowadays.

Looking forward to the chemical online shop, www.imorecords.com also has a pretty good MP3 shop and a lot of dnb labels are participating right now offering their entire discographies for download on there (RAM, True Playaz, Defunkt, etc.) Human, Hospital, and Violence have their tunes up on the iTunes store for sale as well. I think it's great that so many top labels are willing to participate in this, it enables many aspiring dj's who are tight on cash to have access to tunes that they otherwise could not afford on vinyl, which is getting more expensive by the minute.

Granted I still love vinyl as much as the next dj, but I honestly think legally downloaded MP3's on CD are practically as good, if not less expensive. If a DJ's playing a good track I don't think it should matter whether it's being played on wax or CD. :)

Can't agree more. I love and use both - in what every way is appropriate.

I prefer to buy cds rather than buy mp3s though - I don't like the encoding on some mp3 stores - 192 or 256 is a bit shoddy IMO especially as subbass frequencies are concerned.

Vinyl is never going to die, lets all remember to keep our pride in oour pockets and just go with it. I am saving up for a cdj800 maybe a 1000 if i can wait long enough, i have so many unreleased tunes from my buddies and various big names small names that said i could use their stuff in sets, its really exiting, mp3 sales will most definatly open up new doors for the scene because the monopoly that the big name record companies won't have as much control, which i believe is a good thing....NO MORE CLOWN STEP!!!!!

... But there's gonna be a lot of die-hard vinyl fanboys who won't ever properly give in to the digital revolution - and I guess some people do enjoy the tactility (making up words? nm) of vinyl... Can't be beaten sometimes.

i spend a lot of time scouring dnb forums for good quality unsigned music from newcomer producers. DSCI4.com's future board is an untapped resource for this. i do this because maybe 25% of the tracks i like & want to play ever see a vinyl release. i dont want to miss out just because some UK distributor or another deems a GOOD tune not release worthy. some of these guys (or in fact most) end up being discovered long after i & many other like-minded DJs have been supporting their music.

i could say the same thing about the average Baron or Fresh track, its all just a matter of opinion.
thats true you can say you don't like them of course. doesn't make them untalented

My point is that quality control is bound to get harder when there is a technology that allows basically anyone to get a tune distributed. I'm not saying its going to damage the scene out of hand, cause its lived through worse and does have some benefits too.

It is another step up from the CD revolution for DJs imo, which i agree has been a good thing as I live in australia. and it will have knock on effects in terms of quality.

If you think clownstep is the epitome of poor quality thats cool, just don't expect less of it with mp3s being distributed like this.

More access to more tracks at a lesser price means more listeners... at least thats what I think.

TRUE!! .... the average person doesn't have a turntable these days. People who might not normally listen to D & B might actually give it a chance.
