Beatport’s sale of the decade

Beatport.com is offering a sale of classic electronic goodness for 99 cents per song, starting today until Monday Jan. 25. Don’t miss this, there are literally thousands of tracks to choose from!! All for a dollar!

I briefly described my likes and dislikes of Beatport.com as an online mp3 store here. So go and select any music genre, then hit the “classics” button on the left. Beatport considers anything over a few years old a classic, so that that dancefloor hit from a few summers ago can be yours for only 99c.

Check out a tasting of some of their selected playlists here.

Best Buy announces to sell DJ equipment

bblocation

Electronics giant Best Buy is partnering with Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics to create DJ equipment areas in all of their retail stores. Consumers will be able to purchase DJ equipment including turntables, mixers and production software. A handful of stores will have a full “Club Beats” area, with music sampling stations and interactive areas to sample products. While up to 300 other stores will have areas with less product selection. Monster Cable is also getting in on the act, offering their DJ related product selection to the mix.

Best Buy is planning to kick off their new “Club Beats” venture, with celebrity appearances, incuding the Godfather himself, Dr.Dre.

Finally, the electronics superstore is jumping onto the band wagon, doing what smaller music stores have been doing for years. Now I don’t have to pay regular price for my DJ equipment at Guitar Center or Sam Ash anymore, I can overpay at Best Buy now….. but then again this apparent attempt by a mainstream retailer at acceptance of the whole DJ-ing craze isn’t such a bad thing after all?
