http://clubberplanet.com/ website for djs
You forgot DemoDrop.com
George, thanks for the feedback. DemoDrop has also been added.
Thanks for all the info, great webpage!
http://www.just4djs.com/ is a great remix site to help with live performance. DJ Tools and oldschool redrums
Great article, I still wonder though, what is the difference between these websites you listed and a dj simply buying songs off of itunes?
The basic difference is the special edits, bootlegs and DJ remixes of original songs you can find on these websites. Even unique remixes created by DJs.
Question, is this a good site for rap,rnb and instrumentals
Also, iTunes and similar services state their downloaded music is not for commercial use. Which is a separate topic for discussion as to whether or not DJ use is considered “commercial use”. I have seen the discussions arguing both sides of this issue.
Visit Electrobuzz and download the best underground music, exclusive releases and unreleased tracks.
digital-tunes.net is quite good with their selection of dnb and house
What about video djs? Where can they get music videos?
I have a question where famous DJs like Afrojack get their music ,I would be grateful if someone answer.
