Ive been a subscriber to this series of remixes from the UK for while..
This latest edition is very good , theres some remixes i can definitely use, have a listen guys:

interesting assortment... i gotta say tho... in this day and age...i think record pools are the way to go... a month or two membership and you have thousands of these redrum ...songs from the past 60 years... ya just cant beat it... i usually sign back up every 4 or 5 months and catch up on anything ive missed...

I know its quite sad in a way when we reflect back , back in the day we were paying $3 per 45rpm 7inch single.. Record, whats a record?? Whats a CD?

Now the stuff is practically free. Jump for joy i guess but there's not the magic to collecting like back in the old days.

hahaha yes sir!

I was lucky to have an amazing record store a few miles up the road... around 1992 he started getting xmix...funkymix...ultimix...turbo beat...and a few other services shipped directly to his store... he kept them behind the counter and sold directly to us dj's who were steady customers... i had an amazing collection over the years... and spent enough money to buy a house im sure...lol

They are the way to go. I'm still however not impressed with Promo Only after switching from Prime Cuts once they closed. With Prime cuts I was never stumped, especially with new releases, but it seems it is taking forever to get the new stuff nowadays.

Promo Only claims to be one of the only sources doing this legally...so considering the "legal" path they use to garner music... they may never get certain songs... no matter how long you wait... i admire their "stance"... but the cocky "rock star" owner of the brand is so obnixious when he proclaims this stance...its a bit of a turn off...

Not sure what is "legal" about their operation that isn't in say idjpool or BP Supreme.

The thing I like about PO (and formerly PrimeCuts, or somebody like RPM or ERG) is that you can just download their packaged releases and be pretty confident you've got whatever will get requested. On iDJPool or BPM, you don't have curated/packaged releases, so you have to go manually select and download the songs you need. (I'm a lazy, entitled millennial I suppose!)

The other side of the two-edge sword is all the fluff that never charts from PO/RPM/ERG that you never get around to deleting (at least, I don't). Or the "quick mixes." I never seem to use those. And now my MediaMonkey library reads 229,000 files. 15 versions of every song, and thousands that never got airplay.

Regarding old music and back catalogs -- I once spoke to the copyright owner of the "Murray The K" special from the 60s, which was a TV special that featured live performances and pre-recorded videos of Motown and other performers. Some of the performances, like Up on the Roof by the Drifters, constituted the only video for a given song in that era that appears to exist. I wanted to purchase the master footage to use in my DJ music video library. The concept of DJs using his video was completely foreign to him, so when I pointed out that Xtendamix had one of his videos (Nowhere to Run by Martha and the Vandellas, filmed in a car manufacturing plant), he said he had never heard of Xtendamix and they never contacted him to get the rights to the video (which evidently would be separate from the rights to the song).

Murray the K's "It's What's Happening, Baby" - (https://www.murraythek.com/its-whats-happening-baby.html)

Bottom line -- there's a good chance some of these services don't even know they're breaking the law. (Or they never heard the story about the Platinum Series back in the day...)

FYI, with idjpool, I use their FTP setup (FlashFXP) and pull everything with a simple drag and drop, so I get everything with a single drop (might run for a few hours).

Agreed, I know I could delete half if not more tracks Ive DL from PO in just the last year , DL the songs is like eating a Lays , you cant just eat one, gotta DL the Intro/quick mixes too, you know, for just in case .

One thing about idjpool though that seemed a little off-putting to me compared to bpm-supreme was their cancellation policy (see above). You can pause your account once. After that if you want to do that, they push you into a 12 month prepay. It's like they're trying to punish you for putting your account on pause which seems a bit juvenile. In my opinion, if it's really a great service, you'd think people would just naturally be less likely to pause the acct. No need for punishments. :-/ After your "punishment period" is over they'll let you go back to monthly again unless you do it again. Then they smack your hand again with another 12 mos pre-pay. I know it's good to keep a subscription going to stay on top of current songs etc but it's also nice to have that pause option. Heck, I did that with HBO and Game of Thrones!
