Beatport gets some new dance music releases first as exclusives but they charge you $2.50 a track, which is obscene.

This will be heavily pirated, knowing Skrillex's fanbase.

Yeah, 2.50 a track is ridiculous. It's already all over the net. I'm all for supporting artists but $18 for a 7 song ep? Crazy.

"Summit" is a reworked version of "Breathe" but has Ellie Goulding which makes it 100% better. Other than that, my thoughts, "Kyoto" I liked to begin with and the same with "Bangarang." "Right In" is pretty good. Doors song would be better without the annoying Doors lines and the other tracks are meh.

The idea is that the independent DJ will pay any amount to get a 320k quality version of new song to play at parties and local clubs.

I've bought $1.50 tracks from Beatport before and the quality is top notch, but anything more than that I wait to buy on AmazonMP3 for a dollar.

What's interesting is that other online dance music stores charge that $2 and up per track price too. It's because the catalog these stores offer is largely unavailable on iTunes, AmazonMP3, Zune Marketplace, Spotify, etc. So you can't get it anywhere else unless you pirate it, and even then some of these tracks are hard to find. Trying to find a download of a full, unmixed dance music track can be tough. Most of the time torrents have these tracks, but they're not full versions (they're ripped out of someone's podcast or radio show, complete with watermarks).

Yeah, I know they're intentions behind it, my buddies do shows and parties so they always jump for the hot new tracks . I mean 1.50 isn't bad and even 2.50 isn't bad if you're buying a couple tracks and can play a party or show and make revenue back. You have to spend money to make money, but I think they know Skrill will bring tons of people and they will pay the 18 bucks.

And it's cool that it's harder to find which is creates more of a community and connection to people buying music and being able to play around with it, something that seems to be missing these days in other genres.
