With so many scattered resources for good music online it’s good to see a central collection where one can go to get the music they need. Good work. I will bookmark this site and refer to it often.

HEY GUYS!!

Swedish House Mafia bring us their new single!! Im sure you’ve heard it- it hit Number 1 on Beatport and im sure will continue to chart.

We thought it needed a good MAIN ROOM remix so put this together. We played it at a festival main stage over the weekend here in Australia and it sounded really good so here to share!

DJCity is my favorite. BeatPort works good also. I used Living Electro for most of my music when I first started but after gigs started to pile up I had the money to blow on pay-to-download tracks.
