Let’s face facts: being a DJ is not held in the same regard as it was 10 years ago.
We’re not trying to write about what makes a “real DJ” or “Vinyl Vs Laptop”. But the inescapable truth, is that modern software has made becoming a DJ easier and cheaper. No longer does a DJ need to spend all his/her appearance fees on records. What has come with all of this, is that those appearance fees have dropped, massively!
Therefore, it is impossible for a DJ/VJ to purchase lots on various record pools and pay-per-track sites. A DJ should get paid around $400 for opening, and double that for closing. But in our experience, most are paid half of this, sometimes less. Of course, if a DJ is lucky enough to secure a top residency at a big club, then these amounts are not correct. But we’re talking about “averages” here. And the average DJ is getting by on irregular gigs, at small bars, and budget planned weddings. These DJs however need the same amount and type of tracks, if not more, than the big room DJs!

Now let’s say a DJ joins a Record Pool, say Club Killers (just for example). Club Killers actually have quite a broad amount of music. But can it be said, that an Open Format DJ can join Club Killers, and get everything he/she needs from that one pool? Of course not. If you are a DJ reading this, you know FOR SURE that asking a DJ to source their music from just one site is their worst nightmare!
What it creates, is a download community which features just about every genre
This is where Static City come in. We upload packs every day from all the pools, plus pay-per-track sites. We also put together our own DJ Charts, and source hard-to-find remix packs from all over the web. What it creates, is a download community which features just about every genre, every underground genre, every track from those genres, and official/unofficial remixes and DJ Tools. And you get all this for just one low fee – no longer do you have to pay out all your appearance fees to various sites and pools. Our price for a monthly package is $29.99, which you can bring down dramatically if you choose a longer plan, such as 6 or 12 months.
If you are an Open Format DJ, we are your dream – with Top 40 remixes, mash ups, and plenty of transition tracks to help you seamlessly move from one genre to another!
If you are an EDM DJ, we are your dream – with EDM sections and sub-genres, as well as Mash Ups, and EDM DJ Charts so you know what is being played the most right now!
If you are a Hip Hop DJ, we are your dream – with hot new tracks with Intros, as well as a comprehensive Old School section, and DJ Tools such as scratch loops, Acapellas and Instrumentals!
If you are downloading from pirate sites, then you will be playing the same songs everyone else is
So no matter what your level, what size of venue you are playing, or what genre you are playing, we are the pool for you! We are a Record Pool Exchange, the first of its kind. We operate under the exact same rules that apply to other pools. There is no licensing for a Record Pool (despite what they may tell you), but labels are happy for communities like ours to exist, as long as we only allow in working DJs and VJs! Sign Up today, to dramatically change your sound and quality of output! All our new tracks are true 320kbps, and old school tracks are mostly 320kbps (with a minimum of 192). Music & video files are checked for any imperfections, so nothing can crash your software (as long as you have it updated). We also have a community chat box, which enables our members to share their own edits with each other. It truly is, a DJ community!
Remember: If you are downloading from pirate sites, then you will be playing the same songs everyone else is, even your crowd – if you join a Record Pool like ours, you will be playing only what DJs play! Sign Up now for instant access!
