Anyway, I've taken steps toward the dark side in the last two weeks, by A) getting a Numark Axis 8 CD turntable, and B) downloading high-q MP3s to burn and then play on it.
Enter Beatport.com. The iTunes for DJs. I just downloaded 4 tracks that I've been wanting to get my hands on for some time.
Moogwai - Viola 2005 (Tek^tonic remix)
GTR - Mistral
Varian - Endless Desire
Varian - Endless Desire (Mark Otten Energetic remix)
How much did I pay for those tracks, you might ask? $5.76!
A single record, a SINGLE record, would cost me at least $10.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not leaving the waxy wonder behind, I'm just needing some practical financial alternatives right now.
