    E-Digging!

    Thoughts on e-digging for example what blogs do you sampled from or if you use youtube what channels. I personally use The Vinyl Frontier

    This is a really interesting topic because everyone seems to have different techniques! I personally go on Spotify and search a few well known artists and then use the 'discover' feature to find similar artists, it's really useful for me because I don't sample vinyl seeing as the nearest record store for me is 2 hours away! I'd love to hear other peoples ideas too

    Yeah i know what you mean, i respect the process of actual crate digging but sometimes its easier to just download a couple files in stead of driving to store and picking out records. i might just be lazy though lol

    Thoughts: i think u gotta do what u gotta do...
    i dnt really have the problem of no record stores... i stay like 5 mins from d.c n everything around is ja urban so its not to difficult to find one while ridin the metro... not to mention thrifts shops all around
    I have what u call a.... monetary problem....
    -no usb tt yet...

    as far as blogs n youtube channels....
    i already feel like everyone uses them... so when i get a hot sample i figure half the niggas on fp got it from the same place...lls
    -just a complex i have since e-diggin
    So i cnt drop names...

    A steady drip of water puts a hole n a rock .....

    Like old folks pissin i guess it all depends on

    Yeah I don't go on any blogs or any youtube pages dedicated to vinyl or sampling either! I want something original that no one has sampled before.

    ^^^Lol, Everyone doesn't even use spotify.

    This is irony. I was just disgusted by some cat in another thread using whosampled.com to find already used samples again...but I will kill spotify, pandora, iheart radio, xfm, iTunes or even amazon to find an artist who makes cool music and then click on "similar artists" or channels that host the songs to find hidden jems.

    I guess a real "digger" can see me the same way as I see the ladder.

    But I'm still finding shyt the next guy has no access to without searching. In my defense, lol.

    I went to vinyl frontier and only got linkbuck broken links. Anyway, I'm still reluctant to sample mp3s. I'm a purist so I prefer vinyl.
