Where do Dj’s get their music from?

Where do Dj’s get their music from?

One of the top questions I’ve always been asked. Whether you’re a beginning DJ or just someone who loves music. Well my answer is LimeWire! HA! Totally joking but unlike the past years, it is not an issue to reach any type of music over the web anymore, since there is so much competition between companies and websites serving thousands of tracks to public.

Dj’s like to use record pools. What is a record pool? A record pool is a regionalized and centralized method of music distribution that allows DJs to receive promotional music to play in nightclubs. The music industry sends its newest releases to the pool of DJs; in exchange, the pool provides feedback on each release as well as exposure in their clubs. Pools originated as vinyl record pools in 1975 New York City, evolved into CD distribution networks, and later online music distribution between DJs (digital pools). You can find tons of remixes, as well as the original, clean edits, videos, acapellas, instrumentals and music with intros (8 bar). That is after you get a subscription.
