    Is everything on Beatport?

    I just spent some time checking several digital record shops (The ones listed on this site) to see if they have anything (MP3) that Beatport doesn't.

    I was unable to find a single track that isn't on Beatport. A friend of mine also told me that most anything you find at any digital record shop showed up first on Beatport a week or two prior.

    How often do you guys find stuff that isn't on Beatport and where are you looking?

    No, there are plenty of tracks that aren't on beatport.

    I get almost everything from Bandcamp, I haven't bought from beatport in probably a year. I only go there if I have to.

    Thank you for this tip. There seems to be a lot of unique and obscure stuff on that site. I'm incredibly picky about my music, but I'm finding some stuff that I would buy.

    Beatport is great but you have to dig dig dig to find the goods.

    You can hit up HTFR and check out the vinyl then rip it. I ripped my entire vinyl library and still buy vinyl to get that good old stuff.
