Legal sources of MP3s

kuttnhaste 9:58 PM - 20 August, 2004
I'm curious as to whether or not there are sources for buying vinyl ripped mp3s?

I'm more of a nu-skool breaks/ house DJ and would love to be able to jump online an actually purchase full length vinyl ripped mp3s of my favourite tunes from my favourite labels.

Are there companies doing this yet?
lancota 11:52 PM - 20 August, 2004
I've was sent a survey a while back through satellite records that had a couple of q's on downloadable offerings. I of course raved about how they should do it...but haven't heard anything back.

I usually use www.beatport.com, www.city16.com (part of the hooj/lost language group), www.ctga.com (for original trance tracks, but it's hard to weed out a lotta crap).
AK FutureTrax 9:28 PM - 22 August, 2004
FutureTrax is in the process of putting the final touches on our site - covering everything from house, breaks, and trance to IDM, hip-hop, and downtempo. Rest assured, when we launch very shortly you will be extremely pleased with both our catalog and site!

Feel free to go to www.futuretrax.net and register for beta!

Thanks,

I need a place that will convert all my vinyl to MP3 for me - are there any companies out there that do this? I found one guy but he wanted $5 a record - way too much if you ask me.
12micsn1 2:29 AM - 27 August, 2004
I use a TASCAM CC-222 to record my vinyl to cd. You could convert your cd then in the computer to the format of your choice an still have a nice cd collection for your car stereo.
DJ White Lightning 3:25 AM - 29 August, 2004

All those sites suck, all they got is the commerical crap that no true lover of techno,trance,house even pays attention too.

I couldnt find one decnet song in any of those sites.
radish 2:07 PM - 30 September, 2004
Err not even BeatPort? As a "true lover of trance" I found tons of good stuff on there, like the latest M.I.K.E/Push stuff from Bonzai, the latest tunes from Armada (love that label) and a whole ton of stuff I wouldn't have even heard elsewhere.

And no-one has ever called Warp "commercial"! bleep.com has their entire back catalogue.

Not even www.trackitdown.net ? They've got some pretty decent psytrance, techno and breaks stuff IMHO

Another good place for (mostly psy)trance MP3s is Cytopia:
www.cytopia.org

"a new web platform that enables psytrance music makers to upload and publish their work.

- Fully specialized in psytrance.

- Up to 40% payments to the composers.

- 320 kbps high quality mp3s "

It doesn't have that many tracks at the moment, but there's loads of interesting stuff there

So what's up with the FutureTraxx site, when is it scheduled to open up for bizness?
Alexander 12:25 AM - 2 October, 2004
LK ....I think only the lord knows!!! I haven't heard much from them in the past couple of months?
Lord Kaseem 5:19 AM - 3 October, 2004
Yeah, I been waiting on the email for it to open up for months now.
Alexander 6:49 AM - 3 October, 2004
me too...I even tried to see if I can maybe get on the pre-launch site just to see what they are willing to offer or if they need any help?
Almo 11:13 PM - 8 October, 2004
If you are into funky and soulful house then check out www.traxsource.com

The website isn't live yet but I received an email from them a few days ago stating that it's only a couple of weeks away from launch.

I have been on their forum and asked some questions.

-You will be able to choose downloads up to 320Kbps
-No DRM
-A full back catalogue of all the labels

This is what their own moderator has told me so I'm hoping it's all true.

Check out the labels they've got. If you're into house this could well be the premier download site but we shall see.

Talking of Napster, check this www.campchaos.com. Funny stuff...

O.k. Camp Chaos was funny as hell.

you can also try www.ultimix.com
nik39 2:27 PM - 9 November, 2004
No I meant you cant download them _even_ if you pay ;-) I presumed the fact that you are willed to pay. BTW, I think my post is useless in this thread, as it covers ".. sources of MP3" and you can order only vinyls at the links which I gave. My apologies.

For Deep House, Tech House, Progressive House, Progressive Breaks, and other genres along the same lines try edmdigital.com

I've been impressed with their offering... They have lots of tracks you probably will not find anywhere else.

All tracks are available in 192, 320, and FLAC...

Also, check out beatport.com

Almo 5:24 PM - 18 November, 2004
OK, this is not strictly a dance MP3 site but if you're a slightly more eclectic DJ then this might interest you.

The web site is www.allofmp3.com

I know it looks like some dodgy russian site but I read about it in the Guardian Online (an extremely reputable broadsheet newspaper).

They have a pretty good selection of 70s and 80s albums which can be downloaded whole or just the individual tracks.
You can get bit rates up to 320kbps and they have a novel payment method as you pay for bandwith used and not for individual tracks which actaully works out quite a lot cheaper.

I think I'll be using this site for my upcoming wedding and bar mitzvah gigs :-)
radish 6:09 PM - 18 November, 2004
It is a dodgy Russian site. Doesn't matter what paper you read about it in, it's run by the russian mafia and is almost certainly illegal to use outside of Russia.
Almo 6:22 PM - 18 November, 2004
Are you sure about that? How do you know?
Revolutionary 6:54 PM - 18 November, 2004
Well, you wanna be somewhat careful saying those things, radish. Not all Russian sites are being run by the Russian mafia. Some sites belong to former members of the KGB...
radish 7:55 PM - 18 November, 2004
OK, so s/mafia/gangsters/, same difference.

As for the legality issue, it's very straightforward. If you want to distribute copyrighted material, you need the copyright holder's permission. Typically this is done via a local agency, in the US the RIAA do this, in Russia it's their equivalent. They can license you to distribute stuff only within their region. So sure, allofmp3.com have probably paid the fees to distribute content within Russia. But as soon as you export that content to the US, well then it becomes unlicensed, and thus, illegal. That's why iTMS can only be used in a couple of places (US & Europe only I think), because Apple haven't negotiated deals with all the regional organizations. It's also why the great website cdwow.com (which sold very cheap CDs to the UK market) was taken to court - they were importing physical CDs from Asian markets where they are cheaper and reselling them in the UK. They were doing exactly what you're doing at allofmp3, except in larger amounts and with physical disks.
Revolutionary 8:08 PM - 18 November, 2004
KGB aren't gangsters.
Almo 10:25 PM - 18 November, 2004
I'd better tell the groom he should expect chin stroking techno and hands in the air trance! There goes my pay day.
radish 7:23 PM - 19 November, 2004
I'm not talking about the KGB, I'm talking about former members of the KGB. According to several of my colleagues (many of who are Russian), many "borderline legal" businesses were set up after the fall of the USSR and the disbandment of the various secret services. The people involved used to be hitmen, interrogators, etc, so it's not surprising that they didn't exactly move into regular work.
Revolutionary 8:21 PM - 19 November, 2004
The KGB are still watching you, you know :)
Spider 7:53 PM - 23 November, 2004
You can download some of my group's music on mp3 and some of my music at www.meanttomove.com or www.myspace.com or www.download.com or www.myspace.com or www.thebassment.com .. check it all out!
Revolutionary 8:18 PM - 23 November, 2004
Great site, man. But I think there's a separate thread for self-promotion somewhere. At least what I know this thread is strictly reserved for commercial. Don't know what kind of music your group plays, but check out Diva's thread here www.scratchlive.net
Spider 10:43 PM - 23 November, 2004
Ohhh... sorry, i thought that this was thread to get legal mp3s.. thanks!
Revolutionary 10:48 PM - 23 November, 2004
Yeah, it sort of is. Links to big legal mp3-sites and stuff, where you often have to pay for what you get. Do check out that site I posted where you can get free samples if you're into turntablism.
Haiku 5:04 PM - 25 November, 2004
Does ANYONE know of a legal Hip Hop(Beatnuts, GangStarr, The Roots) download site that actually offers high quality MP3's? Heck, just mp3's for that matter. I go to something like Mp3.com and I'll get offered a WMA file - IT'S CALLED Mp3.com FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! As for Ogg Vorbis, not a CLUE - Unless I do it myself.

that is way to much. i long ago bought a $200 stand alone cd burner to record sets. if you have a lot of vinyl, this investment would pay off rather quickly, as you can easily burn your vinyl, import it, as well as other sources you may have for tracks.

yes, but like i said you have to be a PD, MD or on commercial radio. its a service provide to radio stations. alot of the radio edits on air are from this site. you can't just go there and log on you have to be given permission and be approved to download from them. it is supported by the labels.

nice russian site (with english link in the top left)

mostly commercial stuff but at .02 cents per mb download and various on-the-fly encoding abilities it's worth it.

as far as the legallity, it's still a gray area...but you ARE paying for stuff and therefore it's not a p2p site.

the question is whether the $ is actually going to the artists or labels as they say some of it is.

who knows. i'm just saying it's a nice alternative and paying in roubles isn't so bad.

i'm buying stuff while it's still around.

You have to own a Napster approved player, and with that there are limitations as to where the file can be LEGALLY transferred to.

In other words, it sucks.

Also alot of the REAL hardcore Dancehall reggae companies have begun to post their latest riddims on FTP's. Since CDR's are taking over the sound system circuit, there's less demand for these labels to cut specials/dubplates on real vinyl.

I've heard about this for three or four years, but I've nevercome across one. The sound system circiut can bbe very secretive about where they source their music.

A friend of mine that uses CDDJ's, get riddims that I've never heard or that are only a few days old (They will have been debuted on Robbo Ranx's show only a few days earlier). I ask him where he gets them and his response is like, "I got people".

wtf?

For everyones information- Allofmp3.com is NOT run by the russian mafia. Thats the most paranoid ridulous thing i ever heard...haha...
Allofmp3 can sell mp3s for that price because they buy the blanket licenses for the music- exactly what radio stations buy to be able to play that music...therefore its really cheap.

Josh 1:40 AM - 21 March, 2005
that sounds dodgy to me as well!
nobspangle 11:41 AM - 21 March, 2005
The licensing for selling music (in most countries) is not the same as the license for playing music on a radio. Selling music involves a mechanical copyright, where as playing music on a radio involves loyalties for performing rights. The tracks sold on Allofmp3 are unlikely to be legal in any other country.

It seems to me legal downloads are a pain in the butt, some tracks can be found, some can't, most sites only offer access to a few record labels, some record labels only sell through their own site, some record labels don't offer digital downloads at all and even if you can find the track you want you can't always get it at a good quality bitrate.

It's a complete mess! And they wonder why peer2peer is so popular!

Beatport, Karmadownload and imodownload are ok but other than that, until the record labels can get their act together and offer all, or at least most, tunes in one online store I'm sticking with Soulseek.

Its funny, we in europe are allready used to that :( There are lots of CDs sold which are copyprotected, matter of fact, they dont play in many pc cd drives, like dvd plaers, or even car cd players cant play back those CDs. So I cant even rip the CDs to mp3 to play them back with my car mp3 player.
I mean, sometimes I understand why people download mp3s illegaly. What the industry is doing with us PAYING customers is ridicilous. The one who buys a CD cant listen to the track in his car, while the illegal nonpaying mp3 downloader has no such problems. RIDICULOUS.

nik - sorry to hear that you actually have to deal with that crap.

I refuse to buy CD's now, refuse to pay any WWW music site that encrypts the music, and just getting sick of all the hype on how people are stealing. I cannot count the number of songs I waited, unpaused a tape and recorded off the radio. Back then the DJ's actually would say the name of the song and then play the tune...... Perfect recordings everytime. Never ever heard any BS about copyright infringement....

**VERY Random/off topic Question** I'm relatively new to DJing. I have Denon Dn-S1000 CD/MP3 decks and a Denon DNx300 mixer. As far as i have read most Serato owners use vinyl turntables as opposed to CD decks. I can see the obvious advantage of not having to carry around all those vinyls with the Serato, but does it make sense to get the Serato if you spin mostly MP3 CDs already? I mean i'm hoping that the Serato can eliminate the sound drop out that occasionaly occurs with my MP3 CDs. Will the scratch live eliminate those mortifying sound drops and what are the other advantages of Serato for CD spinners? I would appreciate any feedback very much!

djhsl,

i just read the site...i cant find where it says anything about the bitrate..i only want 320 mp3's or cd quality wav files. it says they offer high quality mp3's so hopefully that means 320... do you have this info? thanks alot.

www.emusic.com

Cheap and reliable.


so i used the free offer...d/l'ed 50 cuts for free...that was cool. they do have a nice selection but it seems the bitrates vary alot. ranged from 120 to 225. i sent them a note when i cancelled and asked them to up it to 320.

I'm curious as to whether or not there are sources for buying vinyl ripped mp3s?

I'm more of a nu-skool breaks/ house DJ and would love to be able to jump online an actually purchase full length vinyl ripped mp3s of my favourite tunes from my favourite labels.

Are there companies doing this yet?
Fishboy 1:47 PM - 31 August, 2005
"I'm curious as to whether or not there are sources for buying vinyl ripped mp3s"

Are you just looking for individual tracks? Or complete EP's?

Fanos try...

www.djdownload.com - probably best for nu-skool breaks

Also go to discogs.com search for you fav labels as lots are providing the downloads themselves and not going through a third party site.

The breaks genre has embraced the digital thing more than most so you should be able to find tons of tracks by

meat katie, dylan rhymes, Drummatic Twins, plump dj's, Freestylers etc.

If you have a Tax ID# or a letter showing a DJ residents in a club or radio, you can call record labels direct and they will send you promos (CD's or Vinyl) and a template report to fill out like once or twice a month for feedback. this might be a good way to knockout major labels and focus more on diggin' for the goodies (hard to find/Out of print). Hope this might help.

Another vote for Beatport. My music collection has almost doubled since I found it, and all things considered I would have easily spent 6 times the amount if it was all bought on vinyl.

I like to legitimately own all of my music, but even if I was (still) a crooked music thief, Beatport would really make me consider legitimately buying them anyway...you can't steal MP3's quicker (while guaranteeing quality) than you can just buy them on Beatport. I think that's just awesome.
DjWoody 1:29 AM - 9 January, 2006
I wish there was something like Beatport but for hip hop. I'm mostly a House/Trance DJ but I used to play hip hop. I'd love to buy new hip hop remixes, hip hop party breaks, club bangers, extended versions and more on MP3.

It will be tight if AV8 would offer their catalog on MP3 or if Stacks offered everything they sell on MP3 too!

Funny, I was just thinking of posting the same Beatport question... I've downloaded hundreds of tunes from there, I like the site and there is a lot on it but the territorial errors, navigation not working and downloading 2 files at a time really gets to me at times!!! I'd rather not see the track if I cant download it...

I'm trying to get Funky Breaks / House & Prog and I'm currently trying to find an alternative site... Anyone?

You'd think this day and age you would be able to get any digi track you wanted if you were willing to pay!

I can't seem to find lots of tracks some really commercial, funny thing is they are all on P2P but I'd rather pay and get goood quality legal files.

Why don't all the record labels have a downloads store surely its a viable option now...?

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN...........


Join Digiwaxx.com and hustle to get sent promos, if you can bullshit labels into sending u cd singles, you will have origional source wich is 10 times better than having just a bunch of mp3s.
CD singles will be easier to score because its cheaper to make and send than vinyl

Rember mp3 will not be around forever, but a source CD can be converted to so many things.

DeezNotes 7:04 PM - 2 March, 2006
Word. Digiwaxx is the way a record pool is supposed to be ran. That paired with Serato is powerful music marketing. Good quality too. Only gripe is their tagging isn't consistent. They have minor typos, but I'll deal with it for the trade off in email notification, ease of use, track selection, etc... the list goes on.

I would agree the Digiwaxx is probably the best free service. The kinda lag at times but for folks not breaking new music on a constant basis, its probably right on time.

They probably check your IP address, thats something you can get around. But you will fail when they ask you about your creditcard details... unless they accept paypal (or any payservice where they dont need your physical address), that might work.
jack houser 9:56 AM - 11 March, 2006
Some of the labels... including 9records.com offer their own mp3 downloads. That might be one of the reasons. Found a track i wanted they didn't allow me to buy, then i found it on the labels website and dl'ed from there. Might wanna check some of the individual labels for other sources of downloading. I know Juno will be offering many more mp3's soon.

It is going to be a Mp3 record pool in which all of the new realeases from most of the major record labels will be pooled and sent out to all the subscribers. It is going to run about 50.00 a month and it will all be sent in mp3 format. It will be all new releases from all of the major records companies. Sign up for the mailing list to get more info when it comes up...the website is.... www.my12inch.com... post questions if you have them.

I joined last nite. Only thing though, you can download the latest joints, but for older joints you gotta pay a $1 each joint. I don't consider Juelz Santana "There It Go" to be that old and warrant $1, but other than that you are dead on about the website. I got me some joints off of there last nite I needed.

djransom 7:08 PM - 14 March, 2006
Nik,

Per month it's $50 and it's a $1 per song in addition to the $50 you've already paid when grab somethin from Diggin In The Crates. I'm givin it a shot this month, but I don't know if I'll return next month. They got a nice selection of songs, but if you need something that's not new and don't want to spend a $1 a song then it may not be your spot.
nik39 7:14 PM - 14 March, 2006
ransom, thanks for the info. Do they have real old tracks in DITC or just some "old" club tracks from lets say the last 2 years?

Is it really free if you're a radio DJ
djransom 7:15 PM - 14 March, 2006
Let me check on that DITC for you Nik. I'm not a radio DJ so I had to pay. I don't recall reading anything on their website stating that if would be free if you were a radio DJ, but then again I could be wrong. BRB.
djransom 7:18 PM - 14 March, 2006
Damn, I keep getting a server error here at the job, but I used it at home w/o problem this morning. The oldest joint I checked on last nite was Petey Pablo's "Freek A Leek". DITC allows you type in either the Artist, Song Title, Year, BPM, etc. I usually type in the artist and it comes up. I'll get more in depth later on tonite when I get home from work. I'll check and see if they have ATCQ, Lords of the Underground, Jungle Brothers, etc.

All songs at 192? Which encoder? Also instrumental+acc? I personally think $1 for one song w/o all the versions is too much. Imagine you would buy a complete 12" which usually has 6 tracks, that would make it $6 for a digital version. That is too much.

I believe they are encoded w/ LAME. I'm @ work now so that's off the top of my dope. They're all encoded @ 192. You would be right Nik that it is too much and that's my gripe. You only are able to d/l the latest tracks on there for the $50 a month. I'll stick w/ Digiwaxx. I'll ride this month out to see how it turns out since I've paid already.

Sometimes they can be a little late on joints as well, but better late and free than never. I was surprised they just dropped that Chris Brown "Yo" a couple of weeks ago. It's cool because I needed the instrumental anyway.

mister iLL 2:58 PM - 16 March, 2006
constant bitrates...some songs (most) are 192, the next biggest chunk seems to be 320. so far i think i have maybe 2 at 128 from about 60 downloaded. i'd say it's about 75% @ 192, 22% @320, and 3% @ 128.....i also seem to have a problem with previewing the tracks. not sure if it's my computer, my prefs, or the site itself....but about every 15-20 minutes, i lose the ability to hear the tracks, and i have to quit out of safari and reopen it and log in again for the flash player to start working again. but all in all, i'm pretty satisfied with this service so far.
nik39 3:17 PM - 16 March, 2006
Yeah, the site is not finished yet, that is a bit unprofessional. If you click www.my12inch.com <- here, you can see the tomcat default start page, which is a bit, lets say, unusual.

128kbps is bad, charging $1 for such crap even more. Looks like like someone did not do his homework.

constant bitrates...some songs (most) are 192, the next biggest chunk seems to be 320. so far i think i have maybe 2 at 128 from about 60 downloaded. i'd say it's about 75% @ 192, 22% @320, and 3% @ 128.....i also seem to have a problem with previewing the tracks. not sure if it's my computer, my prefs, or the site itself....but about every 15-20 minutes, i lose the ability to hear the tracks, and i have to quit out of safari and reopen it and log in again for the flash player to start working again. but all in all, i'm pretty satisfied with this service so far.


That is the same problem I encounter as well. I encountered several times last nite. Nik, you are right. $1 a track is kind of crazy in addition to the $50 a month. I wanted 2Pac's "How Do You Want It" instrumental, but I wasn't going to pay a $1 for it. I got some decent tracks off of there last nite though. Digiwaxx got that new joint by Majic Massey "Devil's Advocate" last nite and it made my evening.

i haven't checked out the digging in the crates section yet...so is it $1 for (dirty/clean/inst/acap), or are those $1 each...?
nik39 2:30 PM - 17 March, 2006
From my understanding $1 each, which is one of the problems.

Yeah it's $1 for each track which is just plain crazy to me, but again that's just me.

that's absolutely ludicrous, after paying to be in the pool in the first place.

Exactly. Out of all of the tracks available for D/L on there, I've D/L'd maybe 10% of what's on there. Hopefully the next few weeks will bring some better music. I won't be paying $50 a month though. Digiwaxx is so much better.

NO, they haven't gotten any ground breaking tracks. It's good to see that new Kanye West "Impossible" joint w/ Twista & Keyshia Cole on there, but that about it. I just don't feel it's worth $50 a month when websites such as Digiwaxx deliver the same if not better.

Yo, but paying $1 for each song and each version and then maybe getting songs in bad quality (128kbps)... thats not worth it IMHO.

Maybe a couple, but Digiwaxx offset those by dropping even hotter tracks that my12inch doesn't have. I refuse to pay $1 after spending $50 for a subscription. It's not even about the quality to me, it's just crazy. You may as well just make it a $1 to d/l any song you want like Itunes instead of the whole pool. Personally, I prefer Digiwaxx over my12inch.
mister iLL 11:25 PM - 23 March, 2006
for pure volume, my12" has at least 10 times as many songs/versions. but as far as songs i'll actually PLAY....barely a difference. and definitely not $50 worth of difference.

how exactly does this work

what kinda of music is it
djHSL 11:11 PM - 25 March, 2006
tech44, you need to provide some sort of browse capability.

The punctuation of label names isn't always consistent, and spelling can be artistic rather than conventional.

For example, the record label "basiclux" shows up in your database, but my first attempt was to type "basic lux" and this didn't show.

Add the following two functions and your site will be more useful:

1. Alphabetic list of labels, navigation to stores stocking label
2. Alphabetic list of stores, navigation to labels stocked by store

Add data like formats, bitrates, prices, etc., and your site will be MUCH more useful.
nik39 12:01 AM - 26 March, 2006
tech44, do you check whether the sites you add offer the tracks legally?
DJ Nat 5:37 AM - 26 March, 2006
Looks good, a bit more functionality and this could be a GREAT resource.
tech44 1:38 PM - 26 March, 2006
Alright, let me try to answer a few of these:

Vigor: You search the label name and it gives you the stores that carry it. We don't have artist/title yet just to keep it simple programatically. Right now its just electronic music.

HSL: We considered browse, but thought it was redundant since you can search partial terms. ie you can put in just "a" and get all the labels that start with "a". Adding the other data you mentioned may be a possibility in the future if people find it useful, but right now, its beyond our ability. This is just a simple tool a friend and I put together in our spare time.

nik39: Yes. If we recieve reports otherwise, they will be removed.

Nat: Thanks :)

drilla, I've been quite surprised at the range of tracks on emusic:

www.emusic.com

Cheap and reliable.


so i used the free offer...d/l'ed 50 cuts for free...that was cool. they do have a nice selection but it seems the bitrates vary alot. ranged from 120 to 225. i sent them a note when i cancelled and asked them to up it to 320.


The problem isn't with eMusic (which I've been using for more than 5 years), it's with Windows. All of the music on eMusic (unless it's marked otherwise) is 192kbps VBR MP3 without any DRM. Windows doesn't properly read the ABR of VBR files so they post incorrectly. This has been an ongoing problem with Windows for a LONG time now and they don't seen interested in fixing the problem any time soon.

As for legal music sources:
eMusic.com - 192kbps vbr MP3 - NO DRM!!! (woohoo!)
allofmp3.com - ok, legal in Russia, and from what I can tell not any more illegal in the US than 'Import' CD's and vinyl. Bitrate and codec can be selected, you pay based on file size of the download. NO DRM.
mp3tunes.ru - Bitrates vary, fixed rate of 10 cents a track - legality issues are same as above, but let's not discuss licensing and copyright law in this thread.
itunes.com - AAC 128kbps w/ DRM (last I checked anyway)
Napster.com - WMA DRM
listen.com - Rhapsody - DRM
Walmart.com - 88 cent downloads - DRM
VirginDigital - DRM

There are plenty of other sites offering DRM enabled downloads as well.

However, for something FREE and completely off the wall you can check out the tracks at the Internet Archive. Lots of live sets of String Cheese Incident, Grateful Dead, and more.
www.archive.org

On a side note, if you have a DJ business you need to read the terms of use agreement on the web sites you purchase from. The quotes below are from the iTunes store but most sites have similar terms of use agreements that may limit your use of the products as a business entity (ie, commerical use):

"You shall be authorized to use the Products only for personal, noncommercial use."
"The delivery of Products does not transfer to you any commercial or promotional use rights in the Products."

If you have any questions on the legalities of their use I recommend you contact an Intellectual Property attorney familiar with licensing, copyright, and the music business to discuss the matter. And no, I'm not an IP attorney, or an attorney at all! I don't even play one on TV!

djayace 8:57 PM - 5 April, 2006
Here are my findings regarding My12inch.com vs Digiwaxx. Paying my12inch $50 per month for subscription is not bad depending on your background. I am a vinyl Dj that is integrating digital music into my setup. I just picked up a serato unit and I love it. My area (Bay Area, CA) we pay $7 per single on vinyl. Record pools that distribute vinyl range from $ 125 to $ 175 per month. The tracks you get through vinyl record pools are pretty much the same as what you would expect to get from my12inch and digiwaxx. Fact is that the majority of music that comes out is not worth paying $ 7 per single on vinyl. Digital vs Vinyl record pools?????.....I would rather pay $50 per month to get tracks that I could experiment with using serato than pay $125 - $ 175 a month to get vinyl that will probably sit in a storage box in my garage. The fact that Digiwaxx is free is really promising because.....well....its free! However, I signed up to my12inch in March and downloaded everything they have available which turned out to be 775 mp3's (all version's of each track). A friend of mine signed up with Digiwaxx (also in March) and downloaded everything they have available which turned out to be 363 mp3's. My12inch is obviously offering alot more than Digiwaxx. The fact that My12inch offers older/classic tracks for $ 1 per download....not a bad offer. They are a record pool company of which they added the diggin in the crates for convenience. Its there if you need it. Digiwaxx does not offer a service like this. Once they remove the tracks from their site they are no longer accessible. One other note.....as a side by side comparison......my12inch seemed to get mp3's uploaded sooner than Digiwaxx. My team logs on daily to check for new tracks. ***Bottom line, Digiwaxx as a free service is awesome and there should be no complaints about free legal music. My12inch charges $50 per month. Based on a one month comparison, my12inch offered double the amount of mp3's sooner than Digiwaxx. My12inch is a new service that launched in March from which it can only get better in the coming months. One other comparison that is not critical but it is convenient.....my12inch add's bpm and genre id tag info on all of their mp3's. Digiwaxx does not add this info on their mp3's.
Just wanted to share my findings regarding the two web sites. Both are great services for digital dj's.

Actually it goes both ways. Digiwaxx got some joints before my12inch.com and vice versa. If you tag your own MP3s then the tagging from either site is not even worth it, IMHO. Each site has it's perks though. Great post though.

Thanks for the lead jack houser. I checked out traxsource and it looks really good. I purchased some tracks and I am currently waiting for the dowload to complete. Looks like a really good source for this type of music.

ACME 1:47 PM - 8 April, 2006
Don't buy from Beatport.com!
It's the most expensive e-shop and, even if they keep track of all your downloads, they won't let you re-download a few tracks if you need (i.e. HD failure).
In my case, I only needed 3 tracks, out of 136 bought from Beatport, and they won't let me download again without buying.

Kompakt-mp3.net, instead, let's you download everything at least three times, it's cheaper and every track comes with artwork.
Juno is getting bigger as well.

Digiwaxx has Busta's "Touch It" plus the remixes, "NY Shit", and "I Love My Chick". It's good that my12inch.com got that "Tell Me When To Go(remix)" w/ Kanye, Game, & Ice Cube. I'm surprised my12inch hasn't gotten that new joint by Rhymefest "Stick" and Juelz Santana "King of NY".

It's not low sound quality. A tag is written in the .mp3 to tell your computer how loud to play it. That is a "loss-less," meaning the sound-quality is un-affected.

MusicMeister 5:35 PM - 29 April, 2006
The site is legal per Russian law. The legality of the site outside of Russia is debatable based on import restrictions, etc.

As for the instrumentals, a capella's, etc, you need to look for CD singles on the site to find those sorts of things. Same would apply for other sites in the RU domain and most of the US based sites as well.
mister iLL 6:12 PM - 29 April, 2006
i thought the debate about that was over: it's illegal to use those mp3's anywhere but russia. right?
ACME 6:23 PM - 29 April, 2006
It is as legal as buying an import record.
MusicMeister 5:29 PM - 30 April, 2006
1. Purchase of the tracks is legal in Russia.
2. My investigation based on US laws basically put them into the same category as purchasing an Import record of any kind.
3. I did NOT investigate too deeply so laws regarding the import of copyrighted or licensed material may change my findings in #2, however thus far no one has shown anything saying any different (and I've asked a LOT of people).
4. Laws outside the US are VERY different so check your country's laws if not in the US.
5. I'm still not a lawyer, I still don't even play one on TV and recommend that you talk with legal counsel if you're wanting more information regarding legalities. I recommend finding one that's up to date on intellectual property law, licensing within the music industry, and preferably international copyright and licensing law as well.

As for the services, I've bought LOTS of tracks from allofmp3.com and mp3search.ru over the last 2 years. I've never had my credit card or paypal accounts compromised from these services, the quality is quite good overall (allofmp3.com allows you to specify the quality in most cases). Please note that if you're adding album art you often need to use the IMPORT versions of the albums to find the album art. I tend to use MediaMonkey and search the UK and DE versions of Amazon for clip art (with a pretty good success rate!).

NOTE: If you like the band purchase the album from their web site, at a concert, or using come method other than the Russian sites. The licensing rates paid by these sites is VERY low and good artists should be supported. I use the Russian sites for music I 'need' for an event but wouldn't likely buy otherwise (mostly bubble gum crap for teen dances).

Very low = non-existant. You're paying someone to cheat the original artist.

Didn't you say recently that you have purchased thousands of songs from Russian sites? Gee, you must have an amazing collection of crap.

You're making excuses for ripping off recording artists. They deserve to get paid for their work. You're using it to make money, and that isn't fair.

Very low = non-existant. You're paying someone to cheat the original artist.


They are paid licensing fees. It's very low, but there ARE fees paid. I went to the Russia sites and did my investigating before ever purchasing.

Didn't you say recently that you have purchased thousands of songs from Russian sites? Gee, you must have an amazing collection of crap.


Yes, I do. Every time I'm asked to play a non-talent hack at a teen dance I cringe and play it while thinking about making money. I have Britney Spears, N*Sync, Backstreet Boys, Aaron Carter and plenty of other CRAP I'd love to remove from my music collection because I don't consider it music. I also have tracks I've gotten from the Russian sites I wasn't able to find elsewhere because it's imported stuff that I had problems finding in Anchorage. In this category it's mostly German groups (Tokio Hotel, Die Toten Hosen, etc) that I just haven't been able to find here. Remember that the closest record store to me is 120 miles away in Anchorage (a 4-5 hour drive depending on the weather, and the road is sometimes closed for days). I've looked at some places online without much result thus far. And if you try to point me to iTunes, Sony Connect, or Wal-Mart don't bother. I don't purchase DRM'd tunes.... I've had problems in the past with them and refuse to use them at all any more.

Yes, I am. I bought a lot of music from the Ruassian sites but I also bought over 100 cd's in the last year. I also purchased 300 tracks a month from a site based in the United States that pays far more licensing to artists. I support a LOT of artists. If I could get the import stuff where I am now I would. I'll be moving later this week and if I can buy imports after the move (within an hour drive or so) I will.

If my buying music from the Russian sites bothers you then tough. When it's illegal (it's not currently) I'll be more than happy to stop. And unlike a lot of people who don't support artists I do... my fiance would probably say I support them too much....
mister iLL 6:04 PM - 2 May, 2006
but isn't it illegal to USE these tracks anywhere but russia?
Dj NOS 9:37 PM - 2 May, 2006
Quote:
1. Purchase of the tracks is legal in Russia.
2. My investigation based on US laws basically put them into the same category as purchasing an Import record of any kind.
3. I did NOT investigate too deeply so laws regarding the import of copyrighted or licensed material may change my findings in #2, however thus far no one has shown anything saying any different (and I've asked a LOT of people).
4. Laws outside the US are VERY different so check your country's laws if not in the US.
5. I'm still not a lawyer, I still don't even play one on TV and recommend that you talk with legal counsel if you're wanting more information regarding legalities. I recommend finding one that's up to date on intellectual property law, licensing within the music industry, and preferably international copyright and licensing law as well.

As for the services, I've bought LOTS of tracks from allofmp3.com and mp3search.ru over the last 2 years. I've never had my credit card or paypal accounts compromised from these services, the quality is quite good overall (allofmp3.com allows you to specify the quality in most cases). Please note that if you're adding album art you often need to use the IMPORT versions of the albums to find the album art. I tend to use MediaMonkey and search the UK and DE versions of Amazon for clip art (with a pretty good success rate!).

NOTE: If you like the band purchase the album from their web site, at a concert, or using come method other than the Russian sites. The licensing rates paid by these sites is VERY low and good artists should be supported. I use the Russian sites for music I 'need' for an event but wouldn't likely buy otherwise (mostly bubble gum crap for teen dances).


One BIG question about allofmp3.com and the other site, i see some of the tracks i want, but the album says its MIXED. cant deejay with a mixed track. or woudnt want to try. can you give some feedback on the albums that you have downloaded? where are the singles???
djHSL 9:56 PM - 2 May, 2006
I'm constantly amazed by the lengths to which some people will go to justify their own bad behaviour. The matter of legality is one for lawyers, of which MusicMeister is not one. The matter of MORALITY is one for all DJs.

There are many recorded statements, online, from musicians and artists complaining about allofmp3 not paying royalties. I can't find one statement from an artist who claims to have been paid royalties as a result of allofmp3 sales. You're ripping off those who made your music, and hiding behind weasel-words.

Show some character.
vidoona 11:27 PM - 2 May, 2006
djHSL, do you have links by any chance to that stuff.....not doubting or anything, just interested.
MusicMeister 2:25 AM - 3 May, 2006
There aren't a lot of singles on the site... but you can find some older stuff and all the bubble gum crap you can throw a stick at.

As for my morality, I can assure you it's completely intact. I did the investigation, I've talked with lawyers, I spent hundreds and likely thousands of dollars to find a way to legally move my karaoke tracks to a computer for my business - there isn't one. I did the same for my DJ business an again, there isn't one. I'm the only person I know that actually got a written exception to the terms of use agreement so I can use tracks within a DJ business. NO ONE else that I know of has gotten that far, and more than 99% don't even bother to try. They violate the terms of use and end user licensing agreements day in and day out. I am legal - 100%. As I've already said, I support artists, I buy more than 100 Cd's a year, more than 7500 tracks a year from US based sources and yet you are upset that I bought 10,000 tracks from the Russian sites in the last 2 years (about 5,000 a year). Let it go...

MusicMeister, you can put out a snowstorm of bulldust, but you ARE illegal and immoral.

Illegal? Test your theory. Ask the RIAA for their position on allofmp3. In fact, why don't I do it for you? Perhaps I could send your business details to RIAA, or to your competitors, and let them sort out the legality of your situation.

Immoral? Find me ONE non-Russian artist who has received royalties from allofmp3. In fact, run a Google query like "allofmp3 artist royalties", and the ONLY people claiming that allofmp3 pays royalties is allofmp3 ... hardly a convincing argument.

I don't care how many CDs you have bought. That entitles you to THOSE tracks, and pays the artists on THOSE CDs.

You can bluster all you like, but you're nothing more than a cheap thief.

I will elaborate a little. Most music purchase sites have a section in the terms of use or end user license agreement that prohibits any commerical use of the tracks they offer for sale. In the normal sense of the term commerical this would prevent you using the tracks in any 'pay for play' scenario. In other words, the tracks are for personal use only and you can't use them if you're playing for public performance - even if you have obtained public performance licensing through ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or CCLI.

I made calls, I wrote emails, and basically harassed one service until I got a waiver on the commerical clause. It was after I talked with a label and relayed what the label told me that they finally got upset with me (probably because they didn't think I'd actually call the president of the label) and told me on the phone, and then sent me an email allowing me to use the tracks from their site for 'pay for play' provided proper licensing was obtained. I'm NOT allowed to remix the tracks or distribute them in any way.



As for you comments djHSL:
Feel free to call the RIAA. I'm more than happy to discuss my purchases of tracks, and why with anyone there. You can tell them to contact me by PM here where I will be more than happy to provide them with my email address and phone number to discuss it further. Unlike a lot of people, I actually do my homework and am more than happy to discuss my position, what I've purchased, and why...

As for payment of royalties:
allofmp3.com and mp3search.ru both pay royalties to an agency (Russian Organization for Multimedia & Digital Systems (ROMS) and Rightholders Federation for Collective Copyright Management of Works Used Interactively (FAIR).) who's closest US equivilent is the Harry Fox Agency or the public performance licencing agencies - ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or CCLI. They don't pay directly to the artists. These agencies are responsible for relaying the payments to artists. Feel free to check the payment process for Russia if you like - I'm sure you'll find this is indeed the case. BTW, the problem is that the law hasn't caught up with technology in Russia. There is currently a loophole that allows for a greatly reduced rate for licensing the tracks because of the way the laws are worded - but not a complete waiver for the licensing costs. Basically, it's licensed more like a radio station than an iTunes store would be.

The specifics can be found in an article from 'The Register' a UK based website with a surprising amount of information. From their article regarding the legality of allofmp3.com:
www.theregister.co.uk
"The answer is far from clear. The site is not licensed by any labels. However, currently there is an exemption under existing Russian copyright legislation (Article 39 for the aficionados) allowing phonograms to be performed publicly without the authorisation of the copyright owner for broadcasting and cable transmission. The Internet could be deemed to fall under this exemption. A similar argument can be applied to copies in the cache memory of computers."

When you couple this with the fact that all works before 1973 are public domain in Russia and a number of other anomolies in Russian copyright law it's all legal.

As far as I know the only reason you have to be upset with me is because I buy tracks from Russia - LEGALLY. I recommend that everyone do their own research and make their own determinations. I can only tell them what I've found out and where.

And from the allofmp3.com site:
"The availability over the Internet of the ALLOFMP3.com materials is authorized by the license # LS-3М-05-03 of the Russian Multimedia and Internet Society (ROMS) and license # 006/3M-05 of the Rightholders Federation for Collective Copyright Management of Works Used Interactively (FAIR). In accordance to the licenses' terms MediaServices pays license fees for all materials downloaded from the site subject to the Law of the Russian Federation "On Copyright and Related Rights". All these materials are solely for personal use. Any further distribution, resale or broadcasting are prohibited."

And if you check this link from mp3search.ru you can get the lowdown on their legalities (but you'll need to speak russian):
www.mp3search.ru

But they have obtained a license for distribution through FAIR.

And if you want to read up on the legalities and the specifics:
"Legality in the US
In the United States, many supporters of AllOfMP3 have pointed to limited exceptions in US copyright law, most notably 17 U.S.C. § 602(a)(2), which provides a personal use exception to the rule that importation of copyrighted items constitutes infringement. A corresponding exception does not exist in § 602(b), however, which governs whether importation is prohibited. Under § 603, where importation is prohibited, the federal government may seize or forfeit prohibited items "in the same manner as property imported in violation of the customs revenue laws." Thus, it appears possible that "importing" digital files from AllOfMP3.com does not constitute copyright infringement but does constitute a violation of customs law. There is no private right of action for violations of customs law, as there is for copyright law.

Whether downloading can be construed as importation is open to question. Importation is defined as a form of distribution of copies and phonorecords (17 U.S.C. § 602(a)), which are defined as tangible objects (17 U.S.C. § 101), which of course can no more be downloaded than a brick can be. So far, US Courts have not ruled definitively on the issue of whether unpaid downloading can constitute infringement on the part of the downloader. Moreover, there have been no rulings in U.S. courts to date regarding the specific legality of purchasing music from AllofMP3.com."
en.wikipedia.org

What does that mean? It means that IF it's deemed a violation of CUSTOMS law, it's still not a violation of copyright law. Which negates civil liability under the copyright statutes. The thing that the RIAA is using to club everyone with doesn't apply in this case!

And in the end... I'm no thief. Did I forget to mention that I've bought tracks on the Russian site just so I wouldn't have to rip/encode them myself and to insure the legal status since ripping/encoding them is illegal under copyright law if you're a commerical entity? Ripping and encoding a CD is illegal, so I have some tracks that I've bought from the Russian site AFTER I already owned the CD. So how about this: Kiss my ass.

You see this as black and white... and it's not. Stop pestering me and try going onto irc, newgroups, and p2p networks and tell them they're breaking the law instead of trying to tell someone who's done their homework and heavily supports artists. Just because I bought some tracks from Russia I'm a 'thief'. Puh-lease....

MM, I think the point that djHSL has problems with is the way you were argueing before. You described differente things that you do (w/o giving the explanation why they were legal, which you did know) and then it looked like you tried to hide behind the fact that you spend a lot of money on records, and listed how many CDs you bought. From a legal point of view no one cares. You can go to the church every sunday, pray before each dinner, still if you kill someone - you killed him, all the other stuff does not count. So if you break the law, you are breaking the law, no matter how much you did not break the law before. But it seemed that that was your way of argueing.
MusicMeister 2:10 AM - 5 May, 2006
nik39:

He would attack a small part of my post and I would respond. If he had simply asked me to prove the legality of the downloads instead of attacking me it would have been far easier on the forum. And if he had read one of my early posts regarding alofmp3.com he would have seen the basics of the research akin to what's posted above.

Everyone:
Please understand, I don't have a problem explaining the information I have regarding the sites in question, discussing copyright law, licensing or anything else. I take offense to being called a thief, unethical, immoral, etc. because someone else hasn't taken the time to do the research or offhandedly believes every bit of propaganda the RIAA throws out. This is the same organization that's sueing dead grandparents because they can't get their act together.

BTW, I almost applied for a position with the RIAA tracking down people that are sharing music illegally. I didn't because the pay was too low, I'd have to live in California, and I'd instantly become the most hated person in the US (except for George W. Bush based on his current approval ratings).

If you have a question just ask... if you disagree with my reading of the law (and the interpretation from the lawyers I've talked with) feel free to. I can agree to disagree...

MusicMeister & djHSL:

I'm guilty too, but the mod's are really cracking down on arguments that don't lead anywhere and just bring the forum down further. So...

@ MusicMeister - You obviously know your legal issue, but you don't need to defend your morality and you aren't going to change djHSL's mind, so it's not worth the effort.

@djHSL - You may have a point, but MusicMeister is 10,000+ mp3's commited to his views on Russian mp3 sites, so you're obviously not going to change his mind either.

I'm only playing Mommy peacemaker hear because the forum is getting rediculously huge now, and there's a lot of new guys who are just chomping at the bit for a forum fight, so I've decided I'm going to try my best to avoid endless convo's that end up resulting ultimately in disrespect. Let's keep this place helpful and respectful.
djHSL 8:47 AM - 5 May, 2006
Other DJs: Before you start thinking "It isn't so bad ... just a few cents ... nothing important", think what Musicmeister's actions are doing to you.

You pay for your music. He doesn't. That means his cost of business is dramatically lower than yours, so he can afford to charge lower prices. Yes, the immoral downloaders are the bottom-feeding undercutters of the industry.

Then think about the perception of digital DJs. How many people have you heard say "Anyone can DJ with mp3s from the internet". Didn't it make you mad? Didn't you feel you had to defend against this allegation, because you don't cheat on your music? Well, here's one of the DJs creating that very perception.

The immoral actions of DJs like Mixmeister affects us all.

... and in case you want to believe his "legal research", here's what the IFPI had to say in September last year:

===== Quote =====

According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the International Federation of the Phonograph Industry (IFPI) — sort of an international version of the RIAA – has declared AllofMP3.com to be operating in violation of copyright holders rights. But there isn't a lot of current information on the Web regarding where the IFPI's case against AllofMP3.com. Today, IFPI spokesperson Adrian Strain sent me an update via e-mail. Here's what it said:

"We submitted a complaint to the most senior Moscow prosecutor in July (this is the third submission) and are awaiting that decision. Allofmp3.com was declared illegal by the court in Germany in May. The portal to the site in Italy, "allofmp3.it" was shut down by the Italian police in July. By the way, the Russian Organization for Multimedia & Digital Systems (ROMS) does not have the authority to licence the site and was thrown out of CISAC in October last year for purporting to grant licences it was not entitled to grant. We have consistently said that the site breaks international copyright laws by its sale and digital distribution of copyrighted music without the consent or authorisation of the rights holders."

The reference to ROMS is important because supporters of AllofMP3.com claim that its working with ROMS to make sure copyright holders are getting compensated for the purchase of a la carte music. CISAC is the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers.

===== END QUOTE =====

Let's see if we can get in touch with Adrian Strain, and ask him to validate (yeah, right) Musicmeister's thieving.

You're stealing royalties from artists who made your music. That makes you as low as any mix-biter. And the lengths to which you go in defence of your lack of morality are just whiney self gratification.


And you're a whiney self-serving holier than thou asshole but I never resorted to name calling (until now). Does that make you dumber too?

You can try to justify your position all you want but NO ONE has ever contacted me to say it's illegal and I've asked a LOT of people. The only organizations that I don't ask are the ones that have nothing to do with it in the grand scheme of things. And yes, that would include the RIAA. See below for more on that...

Quote:

I'm NOT getting my music for free. As I mentioned before, I pay for my music, on allofmp3.com, mp3search.ru, eMusic, CD's, minidiscs, DVD's, and more. You have an issue with only 1 or 2 of my sources, not all of them. Try this: letting it go.

But what about those DJ's on a service with labels? They do get their music for free. They immoral too? Are they 'ripping off the artists'? Are they thieves and liars too?

I don't DJ with just mp3's, I also use CD's, minidisc, and a lot of other tools at my disposal. I don't charge less than my fellow DJ's, as a matter of fact, I tend to charge MORE because I'm better.



Why won't I contact the RIAA and try to find out about their stand on where I get my music?

Because they break the law too....
news.com.com

Because they use their 'muscle' to force congress to police the world. But that's ok... I can deal with that...
www.ustr.gov

But what about their information collection abilities in their over zealous enforcement?

Suing a DEAD GRANDMOTHER?!?!?!?
arstechnica.com

Suing a 66 year old woman for downloading gangsta rap?
arstechnica.com

But first and foremost, how about because they're clogging the court system with trivial lawsuits preventing the real business of dealing with REAL criminals from getting done? Let's see... 14,800 lawsuits FILED but how many went to court? NONE.
arstechnica.com

But what about their 'clean slate' program?
www.riaa.com

Sure, you can get a 'clean slate' if you promise never to do it again but what you really do is admit guilt, and even though they say they won't go after you it doesn't mean that the labels themselves can't sue you and you won't be prosecuted criminally. Which is REAL easy to do since you've already ADMITTED THAT YOU'RE GUILTY!!!!!

www.pcworld.com
www.p2pnet.net


But wait!!!! The RIAA supports the ARTISTS!!!!
Nope. From their own website:

"Its members are the record companies that comprise the most vibrant national music industry in the world."
www.riaa.com

You can check for yourself... but I don't see one single ARTIST on the list they provide of clients....
www.riaa.com

You want to know who the REAL crooks are? The clients of the RIAA. If you doubt me try reading 'What They'll Never Tell You About the Music Business: The Myths, Secrets, Lies (& a Few Truths)' by Peter M. Thall. If this book doesn't give you some ideas about how the ARTISTS are screwed you aren't really reading it.



djHSL: We just aren't going to agree. My overhead isn't any lower than anyone else's - even with my occasionally buying music from Russia. Do you have to drive 4 hours to get to a record store? No. I do. Do you have to pay ridiculous shipping on equipment to get it to your house? No. But I do. Do you have stores that won't sell to you because of where you live? I do. I'm willing to bet that my overhead is HIGHER than most DJ's.

But all that aside... I actually haven't bought any tracks from allofmp3.com in nearly 3 months. Why? Because I've been getting what I need from IRC and newgroups.

Got you pissed off didn't it?
Actually.... I havne't gotten music from IRC or newsgroups for more than 8 years and don't have ANY of those tracks around anymore. I havne't bought any music from the Russian sites because I haven't needed to... I DO have other 'more traditional' sources for music...

How about going after the P2P, IRC, and newsgroup users instead of someone that's doing what they can to follow the letter of the law?

PLEASE NOTE: NOWHERE IN YOUR ENTIRE POST DID YOU SAY THAT THE DOWNLOADS WERE ILLEGAL. ONLY THAT THEY WERE BEING PURSUED FOR POTENTIAL LEGAL ACTION. So, thus far, even though some people agree with me, I am indeed obeying the LETTER of the law. In other words, I'm doing nothing illegal or criminal. What I am doing you disagree with on moral grounds. That doesn't make me a thief any more than it makes you a child molester for teaching sunday school just to be around 'little children'.


One last thing... being a thief makes you thief. It doesn't make you a liar. All of the information I've posted regarding the legalities can be verified with LINKS to the original material when possible. Where are your sources?

As you requested, I have asked IFPI to participate in this discussion. The following eMail was sent to their head-office and Russian office.

If they choose not to participate, then I won't bother saying anything more. I'll just let your maze of contradictions and bluster speak for itself.

By the way, I'm an atheist. Please don't insult me by alleging that I teach in a Sunday School.

===== START EMAIL =====

Hello,

I'm a DJ, and along with hundreds of my colleagues I participate in a web discussion forum surrounding the Serato Scratch Live control surface. The general forum URL is:

scratchlive.net

The people at Serato have an excellent attitude towards piracy and file sharing, swiftly banning it in all circumstances. Lately, however, we have been deluged by what I believe to be misinformation (and/or disinformation) about the Russian service ALLOFMP3.COM.

If you visit the forum, and look at the list of topics, one of the first topics is entitled "Legal Sources of MP3s". This topic was started to maintain a list of services such as Beatport, Stompy, eMusic, etc., which are legitimate commercial download sites. If you scroll to the bottom of the topic, however, you will notice increasingly strident advocacy in favour of using ALLOFMP3.

I am writing to ask that you join this forum, if only temporarily, and contribute to this discussion in an official capacity. Many of the world's best DJs participate regularly, and it would be a great opportunity for you to educate newer DJs about the legality and morality of sites such as ALLOFMP3.

I look forward to seeing your contribution.

Yours,

Ron Dunn (djHSL)

I look forward to discussing the matter with anyone including the people that you sent the emails. I'm not saying I'm the end all but I do like doing research and perhaps I can be swayed.

As for the reference to Sunday school I will apologize. It was perhaps just a little over the top but meant to make a point.
MusicMeister 5:13 PM - 7 May, 2006
One last thing... it's long discussions regarding the legality that actually draw attention to illegal services like Kazaa, IRC, newsgroups, and even the legal (but debatable legality) of sites like allofmp3.com, mp3search.ru, and mp3spy. Napster had a fairly small, but growing number of users until the story hit the news. People that never would have downloaded from Napster wanted to see what it was all about and went crazy.

No flip flop from me but you're too far into your own little world to know that. I did my research and stand by my actions... If someone shows me additional research to sway my opinion I welcome it, but you have NOT done so nor will you with your small minded attempts couple with name calling and baseless accusations. I'm not so closed minded that I won't even listen to additional arguements, but name calling and unfounded posts aren't going to do it. Legal documentation, laws, supreme court rulings, and the like are what I pay attention to; not flipant comments about how I'm ruining the music industry or undermining DJ's.

If you read back, someone asked about the legality of allofmp3.com and later mp3search.ru. I simply posted the results of my research as they are currently legal. If asked about the customer service and quality of the tracks I reply with the facts - yes, I have used the services. The quality was pretty good or excellent. I had no problems with my credit card being compromised. I didn't post arbitrarily saying you should download from them because they're cheap or anything else. Others might have, I have not.

I am however, a HUGE advocate of eMusic of which I have subscribed for more than 6 years. When asked where to get a track I tend to like to them first (if it's available there). I talk about them to my friends and family. I have personally talked more than 50 people into checking out the service over the last 6 years with nothing in return (I don't use a referral link).

I offended you with my comment about the church and I offered an apology. You want to be flipant with my offer you only show how small minded you really are.

In the mean time I only wish there was an ignore the dumbass option on this board. I have never ignored anyone in all my years on boards, IRC, and newsgroups. You would have been the first persistantly ignorant close-minded poster I've ever seen to make me wish I could ignore them....

You know what? You've done only one thing for me... provided me a mild diversion and make me realize I should probably log onto allofmp3.com and mp3search.ru right now and download a lot of tracks - while it's still LEGAL.

Oh yea... and you can kiss my ass while I'm doing it....

can you guys pm each other about this stuff maybe....? getting a little tiring to read these essays...pretty much just you two battling each other at this point; the rest of us are looking for more mp3 pools...
Clark @ Breakin-Records.com 3:17 AM - 8 May, 2006
Yeah, man, you guys are boring to death.

Also, add to the discussion that labels give out music for the free-ski as "promotional." Are you clowns actually serious?

I know radio dj's who "illegally" download music, then play the songs, in-essence giving free promotion, before millions of people. Are they stealing, or doing Rhino a favor?

Get real. Also, please stop using profanity before a moderator spanks us.

The topic has gone way off course at this point... soooo.......

Here's a recap from the entire thread to hopefully put it back on topic. Belows are all the links from the above thread in one place... I made a few minor changes to make a few more readable -hope no one minds....

BTW, I didn't check for duplicates nor the legality of any of the sites. The only sites I left out where known P2P sharing applications (like limewire, kazaa, bearshare, gnutella, etc).

isnt there a way to pay sabam yearly and get a license to play mp3s ?
cause i know that tru those things i aint never gonna find evrything i want to find .
and what if i play mp3s that i have copied from my vinyl ? how they gonna check al that shit if its download or recorded ?
MusicMeister 12:44 AM - 10 May, 2006
I'm thinking that we need another thread dealing with licensing, copyright, and the like. This thread should be for (preferably) legal sources of mp3's. (please no comments on the .ru domain stuff - we've already been there).

I don't know who sabam is so you're likely in a country outside the US. As such, I have minimal, if any knowledge to answer your question. In the US we have a lot of laws that deal with space-shifting (format-shifting - ie copying vinyl to MP3), licensing for public performance (through ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or CCLI), mechanical reproduction licensing at the statutory rate(for those groups that release a 'cover tune' on their own album), taxes on DAC players and tape (to cover overhead on the possibility of piracy), and more to deal with. I can give you some info on the US but it should be in another thread...

In the meantime, I can't remember the site given to me by a Bulgarian a while back that had some hot techno on it but I did stumble on this... (didn't listen, just found it and thought I'd post)

dot.cult.bg

When I was checking out the above I also came across this site that has some releases, but again, I haven't listened yet so it could be anything from new age to industrial satanic metal with jazzy blues overtones.

Which record pool has the best selection of new and older hiphop / r&b with clean versions? I'm really trying to get rid of anything that I have that is dirty and replace it with radio edits of joints...

Help?!?!?!
mightyjunebugg 10:39 PM - 24 May, 2006
As a members of our MP3, you’ll be serviced with new Rap and R&B singles from many major record labels, as well as many Indie labels. We’ve been getting MP3 exclusives from Def Jam, Sony, Columbia, Epic , J Records , TVT Records, Jive and much more... Most of these are songs that’ll never get put out on vinyl. So they’re exclusives that a lot of other DJs will NEVER get.

As a member of our MP3 record pool and will receive 2 CDs per month. What we do is we take all the MP3s we get from major labels and Indie labels and we burn them all down onto a CD for you. Each CD will have over 120 tracks on it…. It will consist of dirty & clean versions of songs, as well as instrumentals and accapellas of many songs. That’s crazy right?

Think about it…. We’re gonna be giving you over 250 brand new exclusive songs every month, for you to blast off on your mix CD or radio show. We will mail you two Cds a month, the first cd will go out during the 2nd week of the month and the second cd will go out during the last week of the month. Trust us, these CDs will be filled with a lot of really dope exclusive joints that are very hard to get. Plus, you don’t have to worry about downloading them, etc. They’ll all be on CD for you already. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

With our pool, we’ve made it a lot easier for you to keep all the singles organized. You don’t have to worry about downloading anything. We’ve done all the work for ya.

We’ll mail the CDs directly to you. The best thing about it is that we are giving FREE shipping to anywhere within the U.S.

Here is the info on the monthly pool dues:

Each month the MP3 pool membership will be $30. Monthly dues will need to be paid before the first mailing of every month.

Payments can be Money Order (No Personal Checks) or online thru PayPal.

We encourage everybody to use PAYPAL, because it’s the fastest and safest. That way there will never be any shipping delays.

If you choose to pay thru paypal, you may do so by utilizing our paypal account. Please go to Paypal.com and make the payment to our account which is: paypal@wondertwinz.com. There’ll be an extra $5 fee for using our paypal account, which would make your 1st months dues $35.

All Money Order payments MUST be made out to: “AMP Entertainment” only !!!!!

Please mail to:

AMP Entertainment
c/o The Wonder TwinZ
PO Box 2926
Huntington Station, NY
11746

But again, we encourage everybody to pay thru paypal, whenever possible. If you’ve never used paypal, don’t worry it’s mad easy to use. Just log onto to their site and they will explain exactly how to make payments.

So if all of the above info sounds good, then let’s get this crackin’. The next step would be for you to send us ya 1st months Dues and you’ll be good to go.

Please call us @ 1-800-994-TwinZ with any questions

You're violating the forum rules. Give us the website, but don't f-ing advertise like this is your own personal radio station. You already tried selling banners here:
www.scratchlive.net

Not only that, you're a fake and a phony - thus you suck. Why? Because you pretended to promote this site as a 3rd person onlooker as if you didn't have a vested interest here and then just posted your add afterwards anyway:
www.scratchlive.net

And, we already got the point when you posted this exact message here again:

It's a website.......you could be anywhere and run it from another location. Besides, how are you not running the site, when you use personal pronouns in the post "I" "We" - last time I checked that claimed ownership. Were you just copying and pasting from the site? If so, you should say that.

Because, I watch television when I want to be force-fed commercials. If there's a product that forum member has invented that could benefit SSL users, that's cool, but just mention it - don't promote it like a used car salesmen.

If you truly have nothing to do with the site, my apologies, but you'd have to have a sickeningly raging hard-on about something to do free marketing like that.

See above discussion at length on this exact subject between myself and djHSL.

This is NOT the place to discuss this... this is a place to list sources of mp3's and not to discuss the legalities of such... (outside of the obvious p2p, irc, newsgroup type sources which are OBVIOUSLY illegal).

If you don't find what you want in this thread higher up please start another thread or find a thread I started call 'The Copyright Thread' or something similar and post there.

Another thing that is getting to me is people talking about their being "cops" on this forum, getting on people's back. Can't you see that people who are calling to bootleggers to task about what they are doing are helping all of us out? This forum is a great resource for DJs, and it's a fantastic resource for us developers too - we can see what people want, and do something about it. We have to keep it on the level, and these so-called "cops" are not only helping the mods, they are helping everyone! It's only going to take one up-and-coming journalist, hungry for their big break, to come here and snoop around for a while, and write a completely miss-informed story about how "Serato Promotes Illegal Activities and Rips Off Artists", and the party will be spoiled ... for everybody. We absolutely do not want this forum to become a place for people to come to find out how to get hold off illegal MP3s.

The internet is full of places to talk about illegal activities. Please just keep it off this forum, so it can continue to be the great resource it is today.

Even reading this thread should have led you to the result... someone has mentioned it before you. Whats the sense of repeating the same site in one thread? There is none.

you are so funny man!! hahaha

Dont know what you find funny about it. I dont think its nice if you are on the search for a *legal* service and you dont have any clue about it, then someone jumps in and gives you a hint "to help other fellow dj's out" which a. is not what you want (LEGAL!) b. could get you into trouble.
I personally dont call this help. But hey, now that you know, you decide for yourself whether you want to support their crap or not. No one is telling you what to do. But just dont fool others with misleading information for the sake of this board.

lsdjmist, *Yawn* yes, I'm a cop. This has been discussed and beaten to death like 1 million times before. So what? Its my 9-5 job. Anything wrong with it? You want a medal because you found out first I am a cop? Jesus.
lsdjmist 7:31 AM - 10 June, 2006
did you really type yawn? funny.Um the only yawn you get is from reading your tired ass post.damn you are a cop.go figure.Do you really think i care your a real cop or not ? not really. you outed yourself ,not me.Got cops in my family so big deal.got enough medals and trophies don't need the one that says nik39 is a cop. 9-5 job huh cool.did you post this after work? your off duty.
look man it's pointless for this internet battling.You can bring up any post from 2 years where it clearly states whatever but it's how you do it that makes you come across like an ass.and your not the only one.the guy was trying to be helpful and corrected himself.
earlier i was on topic .i did mention mp3's.ease up.have fun.put the badge down and enjoy the forum too.if you see someone put misinformation or illegal shit up here cool point it out but, dude don't act like you are the gavel hittin the bench handing out judgments.I'll agree that it's good to assist the Serato forum but why don't you post with courtesy (not just you)instead of the whole "you can't do that here or you will die" attitude crap.fair right?
you were not clear if it was illegal anyway.Andee thanks for the disclaimer i feel so much better and clean now.
so Nik you got your words and i had mine.I would assume you being a cop and I being in my 30's would make us mature enough to drop it now right?Cool.Let's see what happens next.PEACE

We have polluted this thread more than necessary. Lets keep this thread mp3 related. If you have any other issues to resolve feel free to PM me.
Dj K.Smith 2:10 PM - 10 June, 2006
Yeah really, back track please... anyone know of some other good sources of music? I need acapellas, instrumentals, etc... Free would be good but a few dollars is ok...
Clark @ Breakin-Records.com 11:31 AM - 12 June, 2006
Again, I don't want to offend the forum rules/Serato/etc., but I MUST TELL YOU!!! (YES, I'M SCREAMING!!!! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!) [LMAO!]

Breakin-Records.com will be bananas with yes, acapellas, radio, dirty, instrumental and remix versions. Do understand that many times labels are slower than we'd like to release all the versions, but we'll do what we can.

Also, expect to see an uncanny amount of .mp3's. I already receive 20-75 mp3's PER DAY. I have an 75k+ music industry email database that I'm having to lease a dedicated server for, just to send-out the weekly newsletter! When the newsletter starts again, a rediculous flood of music should pour-in, Lord willing.

Add to that our two myspace pages that are averaging 400-600 new friends, each, per day, and we expect a great turn-out with dj's and labels big and small.

I'm based in Atlanta, so I receive much of the music that blows nationally, many times a year to two years before the rest of the country knows about it... especially this "Snap" stuff.

I've had more pre-release Jeezy, USDA and K-Rab-produced tracks than I can remember for months, for instance. Just expect a rediculous amount of music from all over the globe: Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, etc.

The site should launch, Lord willing, this Friday. Adding the music is seemingly taking all my time! [LOL!] I need an intern! Nik39! Where are you?!
DJLorrence 8:06 AM - 13 June, 2006
sounds promising, how exclusive will it be?
Clark @ Breakin-Records.com 4:11 PM - 13 June, 2006
It won't be "exclusive." If you're a "Music Professional," you're invited to join. BDS/MediaBase reporters and major journalists are free. Everyone else is $15/mo.

The full "Terms of Service (Disclaimer)" page is still under-construction.

YES, I KNOW how big a deal piracy is to you lovely, honest people. I appreciate that attitude of integrity.

THIS WILL BE A FULLY-LEGAL SITE, WITH MUSIC SENT DIRECTLY FROM THE RECORD LABELS!!! YES, I'M SCREAMING, BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO HEAR FALSE ACCUSATIONS OF PIRACY LATER, PLEASE.
Excerpts:

"We're all about breaking new music, giving everyone a chance to compete in the music industry, for little to no cost. Radio professionals and major journalists are free to join, while club and mobile jocks only pay $15/mo. In addition, there is no "in addition"--no entry fees, no processing fees, no extra anything. We just need feedback on the music: did you like the .mp3? For example, "Can you break the new joint?" "Will the song work in your market?""

"Whether you're DJ'ing in front of five people at a birthday party, or headlining in a stadium for 20,000, you can benefit a new song's chance of becoming #1. We're just showing those that are submitting music that we are concerned about their best interests."

"If your application is accepted, your credit card will be billed $15 plus any necessary credit card handling fees. Your credit card will be placed on an automated recurring payment program to be billed monthly, until you specify otherwise. Membership is on a monthly basis, which starts the day that we receive that month's payment. Please e-mail with any payment questions or concerns to..."




"We greatly appreciate your interest in Breakin-Records.com. Hopefully, we can validate that you are a certifiable "Music Professional." We must make sure that you're in a position to potentially help break a record that we would make available to you.

We operate in-line with U.S. and state laws, along with ethical practices to ensure that artists' works are not illegally used, distributed, nor pirated.

Therefore. we must be careful that you are a "Music Professional," as we define it. Again, we define a "Music Professional" as anyone in a position to potentially effect the marketing and, or promotion of a song, including, but not limited to, disc jockies (club, "mix-CD," radio, mobile), journalists, employees of radio stations or music-related web-sites.

Of course, BRRP, LLc. reserves the right to accept or deny any requests for membership."

Here's a recap from the entire thread to hopefully put it back on topic. Belows are all the links from the above thread in one place... I made a few minor changes to make a few more readable -hope no one minds....

BTW, I didn't check for duplicates nor the legality of any of the sites. The only sites I left out where known P2P sharing applications (like limewire, kazaa, bearshare, gnutella, etc).

Yes, they're fully legal. Read the prominently posted "Terms of Use," which must be agreed-to to join and "Privacy" documents, (which I wrote with nik39 in mind, so I wouldn't get blasted on this forum for being illegal).

Also, by Monday the system, through PayPal, will accept CC's and PayPal, but must be accepted by ME. (nik39: you could help if you're not busy with your police work. I can't afford to pay right now... sorry. I'm only messing w/ you because I respect your integrity and conviction--I mean it.)

I will do a full check t make sure that everyone who joins is a definite "Music Professional," as defined on the site. Please read more on the site, <a href:"www.Breakin-Records.com.

Also, we have the site for the forum, <a href:"www.Breakin-Forum.com.

Yes, I provide Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, Reggaeton exclusives, instrumentals, radio clean edits, remixes, Snap (I'm in Atl--I get it all day), South, West Coast, East Coast, PARTY BREAKS, Dance, Bass, early... early... promos!

I want to make a comment to circumvent a common, specific question:

"Why don't you have all the versions of [Insert early promo. here.]?"

My answer: the labels don't make all the versions, sometimes, and when they do, they're staggered over time. I get songs EARLY, so simetimes I'll receive a clean or dirty version before all the versions are released... but, I'll add the versions as I receive them... but, when I receive all versions at once, I give them out together. I wish labels didn't do that!

Also be mindful that I'm in Atl, and I have good relationships with many of the artists/labels/managers here. Therefore, I receive exclusives and EARLY, EARLY promo. .mp3's.

Ex.: We've had several Lil Yola, Jeezy and USDA tracks for a while, while the rest of the country is just hearing of much earlier stuff. Check the board for the new Lil Yola - "She Like."

But, don't think we're stuck on the South. Go to the members' directory, an you'll see West Coast and NY cats, already, and I just started inputting the members we have started with.

Some of the board members here are members on our sites.

Great Places for MP3.
Digiwaxx.com For all you Hip Hop & R&B Junkies. That's me!
Acapellas, Instrumental, Radio edits, Dirty Versions, and Remixes from every artist on the radio today sent to your e-mail. You must register first and get approved that you are a working radio club DJ.

They check your application and then they call you back with a yes or no to get approved. It is so worth it if you play and clubs and are using the Serrato program.

Limewire is another one that I use to find olsdschool, Disco, 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's & today. Better then any Kazza, or naster. I have been with Limewire for 5 years now and was able to find anything! NO BUNDLED SOFTWARE OF ANY KIND, PC or Mac compatible, iTunes integration, Free updates for up to 6 months, Turbo-charged download speeds. The have a basic version for free, but it sucks because you get what you get. But the other version is called the pro version, and that is what I use. It;s 18.88 the first time and when you upgrade to a newer version after 6 or 7 months it a little cheaper. But like I said this is one I recommend to all you dj's. I haven't had any problems.

Hi, my name is DJ Friendly, and I don't read before I post, and I want the wrath of Khan... I mean... nik39 on my buttocks. I just said the last thing he wants to hear--"p2p."
DJ RECKONIZE 9:07 PM - 27 June, 2006
Yo Clark! you don't have to be harsh bro by saying I want nik39 on my buttocks! What's up with that man?
First of all, Limewire is totally legal. You pay for the service every 6 months. I was just trying to spread the word.

Just like digiwaxx. The only difference with this one is you have to be a radio or club dj and have proof! this is not a p2p.

Another one is www.my12inch.com This is a record pool for Mp3. $50 a month. This is for working Club and radio Dj's only.

Some people can't afford this above, so I put out that limewire was safe and legal. I didn't say nampster or Kaaza. Those are crap , and I heard they have alot of viruses. I don't use them anyways, so I wouldn't know.

but anyways If I offended anyone by putting limewire on there, My bad! Just trying to help another DJ out.

Thats not correct. Digiwaxx is very different to any p2p network.

Thats not correct either, its not legal.

Limewire per se is not illegal (same goes with any p2p network), downloading copyright protected material from p2p networks is illegal.

Actually here in The Netherlands downloading copyright material is not illegal, uploading it is. That does make using p2p illegal by nature (as you always share..).

I just tried to type "lol!" (in capitol letters), and I was stopped by the forum, and got this message:

"More than half of your message contains capital letters. To many forum users, this means you are SHOUTING your message, and is considered to be bad forum etiquette. Please edit your message so that there are fewer capital letters."

That's too funny.

Clark,

what the deal with breakin records? I signed up but cannot log on? Care to explain?
Clark @ Breakin-Records.com 4:00 AM - 7 July, 2006
I'd rather discuss this in our public forum, Breakin-Forum.com, as not to bog-down this forum, but to explain your question,that's not how the process works. It's not instant. We have to input an applicant's log-in info. to turn on the account.

Also, if it was instant for everyone, there'd be no way to guard against kids, for example, who wouldn't put the music to legal/DJ use. What we do is go over the application and decide to accept the application, or refund the money.

This is from our "FAQ" page:

"How is membership paid?
Excerpt from our Membership Application page: "If your application is accepted, your credit card will be billed $15 plus any necessary credit card handling fees. Your credit card will be placed on an automated recurring payment program to be billed monthly, until you specify otherwise. Membership is on a monthly basis, which starts the day that we receive that month's payment..."

"el oh el" I'm sorry but that comment is way too funny. Actually, I do believe breakin records has been mentioned quite a bit in this thread. I think you got your point across, and NO I'm not hating, it just gets frustrating when one has to scroll thru this long thread, only to come across the same information which has already been stated in other comments.

It'll be nice if an admin could condense this thread and only keep the comments with useful "legal mp3" sources.

thanks and happy "digging"

Talking about legal stuff. Is it legal to record the radio and use the recordings for comercial use? I just figured out, that I could record a whole day of a radio channel and then cut out the songs, make ID3 tags and so on. But is it legal?

Radio broadcasts are equiv. to like 96kbps. I would say, thats not such a good idea.

Yea... but XM ans Sirius broadcasts are of a much higher quality. But even then it's not legal...

Legal, shmegal... I guess it IS ONLY a matter of morality. There are so many ways to get the stuff illegaly and 99,8% get away with that. If people will want to get the mp3 illegaly, they will. You know, it has always been easier for the bad guys: cos' it is always easier to break something (laws in this case), than to make something unbreakable.

I remember a sign outside a satellite TV shop back in the 80's... that was put up right after they started scrambling HBO, Showtime, etc. All it said was...

"The only thing you can't unscramble is eggs."

You can get music anywhere you want... and unless you're sharing at this point no one is going to come knock on your door.

I CHOOSE to use legal means to get MP3's (and quasi-legal if you consider the Russian sites as such) because I don't want to risk my professional business on crap I pulled from P2P, IRC, or newsgroups.

Stay legal... you'll thank yourself later.

I made that comment generalizing that a rip from CD (wav quality) to a high bitrate isn't always done right, thus the word "proper". Sure, a 320 vs a 256kbps mp3 properly encoded will always be better since it has more information, however can the human ear really tell? If you're talking about highest quality, why don't you save all your stuff as wav's then. For the best performance in terms of space vs quality, IMHO, 320 is a waste of space.

I like to think I have a good "ear". So in terms of sounding better, It is hard for me to distinguish the difference between 192 vs 320. I've tried a comparison with the two and it was very difficult to determine which is which. But I can tell you this, vynil sounds way better than mp3's :), but I'd rather carry a laptop versus 10 crates....

hey guys, i just got scratch live and im also curious about digiwaxx and my12inch.com.. i read this whole thread and i have a question. Is digiwaxx legal? I dont get how it is legal for them to distribute music without having to charge for it. Also i heard from one of my friends that this one dj got his membership revoked because a rep from digiwaxx called him and he didnt do as much club gigs as they wanted. Is that possible or is he pulling my leg?

I was looking at my12inch.com and is it correct that the $50/month is to dl new songs and the older songs are $1 per song or is it $1 per song for all songs? Also, what constitutes a song to be "old"? thats kinda confusing.

I'm still trying to find a legal source for mp3s and this thread is great. keep the info coming!
Lord_MCD 2:07 PM - 15 September, 2006
Yes, DigiWaxx is legal. The owners have direct links to various music industry execs who help broker deals to help push music into legit channels-- called "promo" and "promo use only"... legally that type music cannot be sold, but what can be sold is memberships for "legit DJs" to get their hands on music most often before it's even on the radio getting air play. That's why it's called "breaking records."

I am not a member of 12inch so I cannot speak on it... perhaps someone else can chime in here...

Just my 2cents...

Laterz
Clark @ Breakin-Records.com 4:27 PM - 15 September, 2006
Digiwaxx is completely free. No, they don't sell memberships to DJ's--free for member DJ's whose applications are approved. They charge labels.

My12inch.com receives plenty of support from record labels, too.

Labels don't allow piracy on this level. These promos are impossible to acquire on this level. Labels supply them.

If you need to ask, then chances are you don't play at clubs regularly. You wouldn't lie on your application, would you?
Xclass 5:13 PM - 17 September, 2006
Record pool services that follow rules and regulations must make sure access to these songs are for MUSIC PROFESSIONALS only. Even though we charge, we also screen. Music is given to our service, to Digiwaxx, to my12, etc. from labels as promotional material. That is why you should not be able to get at older music and you need to review/comment. Unsatisfactory comments will also result in suspension of your service as it does us and labels no good if you're not willing to help out the industry.

MOST of the stuff they have on the site you can get for free from digiwaxx, if not you can get it from www.worksessions.com
What's the difference? a $30 difference. Worksessions has tons of stuff all with the instrumental and acapellas if available at only $20 a month so your saving alot of money in the long run. Two of the dj's in my crew switched over from my12inch and they are not regreting it.

Better than I tunes,Similar to the familiar Cd pools, However I'm talking exclusives you hear on the radio, You 'll get it before you hear it on your radio, depending on the area you live in. Im looking to start a company up and just checking interest. Leave a pm or email me @ djgainsbond@sbcglobal.net

2theBeat one of Canada's top underground record stores just opened a download service on their site.

2thebeatdigital.com

You can buy mp3s and vinyl on the site and the catalogue is growing exponentially as they aquire more labels.
Mostly Techno, House, Trance, Breaks, DnB and hiphop.
The staff there is extremely helpful and the site was designed by me. We will be continually improving the site to make it easier to find what you're looking for, as well you can always send them any requests for features you'd like to see but for the most part we tried to keep it as simple and straight forward as possible.

Oh and you can buy Serato Scratch Live from them as well, its where i got mine!

It would be far easier to believe that the owners of the copyright have cut a deal for distribution on the older stuff.

BTW, the RIAA has NOTHING to do with distribution rights specifically - that would fall on the copyright owner directly or with the Harry Fox Agency. The RIAA on deals with Phono pre-amp EQ curves and prosecuting little old dead ladies for downloading Korn.

For techno heads into the "minimal" scene. Check out this thread at mnml.nl

www.mnml.nl

Not sure if it fits in this thread, because its free stuff - 100% legit of course. Netlables and such. I get a lot of stuff from the little netlabels - and usually go on to buy stuff from the same artist when they have tracks for sale on beatport, their own sites, or whatever. The last gig I played was 100% netlabel stuff. I just thought I'd add it because it's a good resource.



I really dig the net labels. Great artists sharing great music. It's also an awesome way to check out new artists and labels. The thread I linked to is a techno forum, so it's all techno, minimal stuff - but I'm sure there are similar things going on with other genre's as well.

On the recommendation of some users here and after browsing their site, I signed on to breakzrus.com - only to discover that ALL of their music links fail. Digging a little deeper, it turns out the files aren't even there.

They're not returning emails or answering their phone. Anybody know anything about these people? Wondering if PayPal will let assist me in reversing my payment...

Thanks.

If you charged by credit card (via Paypal), you may be able to call your credit card company if Paypal gives you trouble. Normally the words "didn't get what I paid for" and "mis-advertised" works wonders. Good luck... and I wonder what happened to the site -- it seemed like a good deal from what people were saying...
Mr. Wright 7:38 AM - 1 November, 2006
Join vinylbreakers.com it took a few days but i've finally started getting e-mails full of promo tracks i wouldn't want to buy cause its not my style but end up having to play when im doing house parties, weddings, etc. So it's been nice to get a lot of free LEGAL music. I also like how most artists they send you stuff from include the clean, dirty, instrumental, and acapellas of the track. I haven't gotten anything below the 192-360 kbps range either, So the music quality is good.

Do you get instrumentals and all?
Decent amount of Reggae and other Urban genres?

Yeah, I get like 3-4 things in the mail every week. Most of it is crap anyway...but hey its free. Some of the stuff I have been getting is not even on Digiwaxx. Capital is the one that sends me the most, Arista comes in second. And then I get stuff here and there from other labels. I think I might be on some sort of "payola" list for Capital. They seem to love me.

Anyone know when whitelabel is going full on?

DJ BIS 2:18 AM - 16 January, 2007
PS: But not on MP3. You probably won't find it on MP3 from music download site.
sG 3:28 AM - 17 January, 2007
yeah ... just wondering if there was an mp3 site that specialized in that.

Since the creation of my12inch.com , digiwaxx.com , crooklyclan.net , remixmafia.com , etc....what else would you like to see? I know Digital Singles are the biggest thing right now and mashups/remixes/partybreaks are huge also. So what would you like to see?

It seems to me everybody is doing the same thing over and over....so how do set up a site that would be different from those? Would you like a basic subscription or pay per download?

I'm planning to do more research, but it may be very difficult to do an on-line EDM "pool," since much of the music is not released promotionally.

Oh damn!
ACME 1:18 AM - 30 January, 2007
What I mean is simply that I don't believe that EDM music isn't released promotionally - there are many records not yet released, but that I've heard in clubs.
Anyway I just hate the whole promo thing and IMO it's a nonsense nowadays with the internet and peer to peer networks.
You have a good song? Just release it officially.

I agree 100%!
Dj Goldade 8:06 PM - 31 January, 2007
everyone in here seems to praise digiwaxx, in all seriousness it doesnt release enough music, and it gets released a lot later than other places. They sometimes only send out the clean versions where other places have album versions, instrumentals and acapellas.. i know they're free, but they just simply aren't reliable

I don't know if anyone seen me talking shit about some record pool on the other forum and then it wasn't them I was talking about!!!!!!!!!!

It was breakzrus.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DJ Hugh Tyson 3:01 AM - 2 February, 2007
Whitelabel.net is great, but they really really really need to get more music!!!

marknonsense1 - what is it that you don't like about breakzrus.com ??

Any other ideas?
marknonsense1 5:57 AM - 3 February, 2007
I don't want to talk about old shit, I just feel bad that I was talking shit about some other site thinking it was breakzus.com and I see them all over this forum!!!!

So I just want them to know the site I was talking about!1!

For one they never get back to you via E-Mail, They cost a lot ( well when you see other and better site's for less or free!)

I not says anything more then that! Lets just let it die here.....
marknonsense1 5:59 AM - 3 February, 2007
I'm not saying anything more then that.............. ( Why do I always do that!)....lol

I feel like I'm the only one in the world who f*** up this much.. sorry!

It's okay. It was my site you blasted, but I wasn't mad. Thanks for the apology. I am the site, so if it didn't bother me, you must be okay.

Join vinylbreakers.com it took a few days but i've finally started getting e-mails full of promo tracks i wouldn't want to buy cause its not my style but end up having to play when im doing house parties, weddings, etc. So it's been nice to get a lot of free LEGAL music.

Mr Wright, vinylbreakers.com is NOT legal. How can it be legal? Check the forums! People are exchanging tracks freely. This cant be legal.
That Guy 1 6:04 AM - 4 February, 2007
Vinylbreakers is definitely legal with their e-mail service. They are very credible in promoting probably sponsored songs. It can't get more legal.

They are actually partnered with BumSquad DJs' website. The forum actually points to BumSquad-- but the tracks they host themselves on vinylbreakers.com are totally legitimate as they've partnered with the artists and record companies.

and as long as ure a dj and u play out they alow u to download new shit for free
DjKyleLaRue 11:47 PM - 7 February, 2007
To my househeads reading this thread...I'm really digging TraxSource.com. Not sure if it was mentioned before. Insanre amounts of new house, plus I just got an e-mail this week that some classic and 'recurrent' Strictly Rhythm titles have been added...including "Follow Me" (Aly-Us), "Witch Doctor" (Armand Van Helden), "Luv Dancin'" (Underground Solution) and so forth. It ain't free (like $1.99 for a 320k bitrate file)...but if you spin house (deep, trance, NY-NJ style, whatever) this is a great way to get these joints on mp3.

(By the way, I have absolutely no affiliation with the site. I'm just a househead from back in the day - used to spin alot of it back in the day for the college sets - still collect the tracks I like today for the sport of it!)

1luv,
