Blog - Where to get mobile DJ music in UK

Buying music is a crucial job for any DJ and you could easily argue that in the digital revolution it is easier and quicker than trawling through record shops. But where can you (legally) get music from online?

As well as all the usual places to buy music, such as HMV or online sites such as Amazon, there are a range of DJ focused music providers. These all offer a variety of different services depending on what you need; some offer music targeted to specific genres or types of remixes.

The main suppliers are:
CD Pool
Promo Only

Over the years I've used CD Pool, DMC and Mastermix and found them all to be good suppliers. For me I've moved away from monthly subscriptions as I prefer to download the tracks that I want and what have been requested for upcoming events.

I admit it was easier/lazier to use the monthly subscriptions as I didn't have to keep an eye on the chart music as much as these came through each month but I felt the additional money spent on the subscriptions was better spent on other things.

One list which I have found quite useful is the Pro Mobile Must Haves, although these are only published every two months alongside the magazine, so if you're looking for more regular updates you'll need to look elsewhere.

If you're lucky enough to get yourself onto a promotional distribution list these can be a great source of music with the record labels sending you music, often free of charge.

If you're wondering what licences you need to play music it's worth reading my previous 'What licence does a mobile DJ need' blog.
