The Best DJ Music Download Stores!

The Best DJ Music Download Stores!

In recent years there has been an influx of digital download stores popping up all over the internet. In this post I will rank my personal favourites and give you a little insight on each.

Before we get started, I should mention that when you are learning how to DJ and you begin to build your music collection, the last thing you want to do is source your music from the one place, you need to be spreading your wings as far as possible searching high and low for hidden gems. BUT be careful because it is highly addictive!

I get a lot of students asking me for advice on the best places to pick up the latest and best dance tracks.

So where do professional DJs get their music from?

The best DJ download store I believe anywhere is DJ Tunes, I used to think it was Beatport but since the launch of  DJ Tunes 2.0 it’s too hard to ignore. The new DJ Tunes is easily the biggest and best digital download store on the internet today.

If you are serious about getting your hands on the best DJ music on the planet, no matter the genre then the first port of call should be DJ Tunes. They have the best customer service, the best music library and the best pricing out of them all including FREE tracks just for signing up.Click on the image below to check it out and get your free tracks NOW!

Beatport is every part as good as  DJ Tunes and Juno Download, the only difference I find is DJ Tunes and Juno Download seem to be cheaper. Both stock the very best selection of digital download music anywhere. Beatport  has a good relationship with the industry and works hand in hand with all the big name producers and labels. It simply has its finger on the pulse in almost all dance music genres.

Other things that make Beatport so good include the user interface which is insanely easy to use, the multitude of genres, charts and advance search options available, it’s awesome custom player and not bad pricing.

Another really good digital download resource for DJs the world over; TID also has a user friendly interface and keeps it finger on the pulse in industry. It seems to be a little more European based than the others but definitely another store you should be regularly searching for hidden gems.

DJ download is the third store that is a must when searching for new music. The content on DJ download is second to none; my only problem is the interface, although relatively user-friendly like both of the above it seems a little dated. The main annoying thing for me is the player used to listen to the track samples opens in a new window and isn’t part of the main infrastructure of the site. This can result in slower loading of the tracks and ultimately a more drawn out process altogether.

Audio jelly is a lot smaller than the other download stores but offers a very organized catalogue and will throw up some left field labels, artists and tunes which is awesome. The interface has its own player which is cool and offers a number of different searching options. Another good thing about the audio jelly interface is that it tracks your favourite labels and artists which will make life easier every time you return. It also has an unsigned artists section which is perfect for uncovering hidden gems and finding one of tunes.

Mixmag download although small compared to the other DJ download sites, is perfect for getting your hands on the latest club tracks and albums. These guys are at the forefront of the commercial side of clubbing and offer a selection of only the very best upfront dance music around. It’s another must when looking to build your collection or simply keep up to date. My only negative is the player opens in a separate window and isn’t part of the main interface of the site, it can be frustrating.

There you have it, a small and valuable list of DJ music download store resources. The above is just to get you going, don’t sit on your hands, search high and low and see what you can uncover!

    Beatport has pretty much put the rest out of business.

    Easily the best download site for DJ’s around the world. I always ask the big name DJ’s that come to town where they source there music and most if not all say Beatport – you can’t go wrong.

    Has anyone got any others to share? the more rocks I have to check under the better…

    Check out this site http://www.dancemusichub.com. Really easy to use and a pretty good catalogue too.

    I’ve used Dance Music Hub many of times and if truth be known it should have definitely made the list above…

    It has an awesome custom player and is easily one of the best interfaces out of them all !

    You should be looking high and low for your music so DMH should be one of your starting points 100% !!

    Any others ??

    Hey,

    I buy a LOT of Vinyl from Juno Records UK, but their site Juno Download has lots of great tunes, too. All sorts of Dance music, but left-field Funk, R & B, Hip-Hop and heaps of different House Sub-Genres also. Dunno why you didn’t have then on the list. Oh, they also offer 192kb, 320 kb, and WAV files as options too.

    All bases covered there!

    i generally buy from Juno and Beatport. Both are easy to navigate…Juno is the cheaper one of the two. Juno, even though not as up-to-date as Beatport, it boasts a more varied catalogue.

    I’m personally using a few spots more than others lately. http://www.hitmusicservice.com gets me most of the dance music, urban, pop, rock and commercial tracks as well as a few good remixes and Electro House tracks and of course http://www.beatport.com gets me most of the major Dance music tracks.

    Audiojelly has the worst customer service. In fact they do not reply to emails. Avoid Audiojelly as you are gonna be dissapointed with their customer service.

    If Beatport could tell my why i have F*** problems with my login i sure would use them.
    I dont know whats wrong with my browser so becus of that i use junodownload wich i find very nice..you can download wav,some im glad to pay for and you can down the tracks 3times within 24. Not to forget you get your tracks online and on cd if if you want,for only 4buks ekstra.

    Second store i been checking out is Stompy.
    I love their page for easy use and organised.
    they also offers wav. and friendly customer service.

    i tried djdownload. not good place.

    what makes me intrested is a well and easy organised page. sub generes and wav offer.
    When they put this little extra work to sell what they have,im hooked.

    bp ,junodownload and stompy are the best sites imo so far.

    DJ Tunes is the only one I’ve used before, it has everything I need and is very easy to use.

    I don’t like how Beatport is nuts on the ridiculous amounts of money they charge (it’s not vinyl what were purchasing)
    I use to buy $12 to $15 imports singles and did not complaint about it, but now that the digital formats are available I started getting most of my stuff in mp3 and I remember it use to be 99c (us dollars) I don’t even visit beatport, It takes to much time for me to find some thing I like and than look it up and get it from some other dj pool.

    any way’s DJtunes/traxsource/juno/mixmag’s store this are the ones I recomend.
