Finding an Obscure Mp3 Dance Download Service

Finding high-quality MP3 dance download can be a real chore since dance music is somewhat of a niche market. Sure everybody loves going to the clubs and dancing, but have you ever actually tried to find this music for yourself? Chances are if you have tried you’ve discovered that finding MP3 dance downloads is exceedingly difficult. Often times these dance remixes are released only to clubs and DJs through special channels. You can’t exactly go to your favorite MP3 store to find them. Of course there are some exceptions for the most notable dance remixes, but anything even remotely obscure is not going to be found at your favorite MP3 download store.

To get around this and find all your favorite MP3 dance downloads tracks you need to use some of the more robust MP3 downloading services on the Internet that cater to these less popular with those still important niche markets. The list is far too long to even begin getting into, however a good search should take you far towards discovering places to find MP3 dance downloads.

The real piece of advice here is to not become discouraged when you don’t find exactly the songs you’re looking for. Instead you should focus on finding services that offer free trials or at the very minimum let you search their catalogs without having to pay for membership. By taking this route you are able to find a catalog that at least offers most of the dance tracks you’re looking for if not all of them. They are out there, it just takes some searching on your part. However, once you do find a source for this music you should definitely show them your patronage so that they can continue serving up the great MP3 dance downloads you are looking for.

Music Business – Will Downloads Be Free?

My prediction: The good old days, when an artist sold CDs or downloads are going to end soon. Most people listen to music with their mp3 players or mobile phones, so they simply don’t need CDs anymore. Of course, as long there are people who like to listen to vinyl records (a growing trend, by the way) or high quality audio from CDs, some sales will remain. Also, by following bands such as Radiohead, who use a model that lets its fans decide if and how much they’d pay for the band’s music, some sales will remain. As it appears, 62% of people who bought the album chose not to pay anything for the download. So what comes next?

Here’s one business model. Referring to Reuters Universal and Nokia agreed that Universal will give customers buying particular Nokia devices unlimited access to millions of tracks for a year. You buy some equipment and in exchange you will get unlimited access to the Universals music library for one yer and you can keep later all you’ve downloaded.

Now indies (and advertisers), pay attention! Another way is that an artist gets paid (other than from live shows and merchandise activity) from ads appearing on artist’s site(s) or even from the ads appearing on a virtual player which artists and fans can export anywhere on the Internet (MySpace, blogs etc). This will help advertisers, too, because they will reach a larger audience. That kind of business model works today at sites such as reverbnation or popfolio (although popfolio is in beta phase still).

So, most likely it’s a question of time as to when the revenue from ads will be big enough to let an artist give his/her downloads away for free. Be honest, even for an artist who is little known, you can download his/her music for free anyway. Be it legally or not.
