Buying an electronic dance music cd isn’t as easy as it might sound. The first thing you need to do is figure out if you’re going to purchase an electronic dance music cd to give to others or for yourself. You don’t need to be a professional in the world of dance to appreciate a great beat. If you are a beginner I would suggest buying a basic beat for yourself. This way you can learn all the basics and then just add on to it when you are more advanced. Once you have this basic beat, you can move onto purchasing a full album of high quality music that is made for dancers of all experience levels.
Another factor to consider when purchasing an electronic dance music CD is the quality of the production. Sometimes a company is known for making great electronic dance tracks and at other times they are best known for poor production. If you are looking for a track that has potential, you are better off paying a little bit more for it.
If you are going to a party or looking for a great electronic music CD for a gift, take your time. Don’t let the choice overwhelm you. Look for a label that has a reputation for making quality electronic dance albums. A label with a reputation will cost a little bit more but you can be assured of a high quality electronic dance CD. With today’s production techniques it is very easy to obtain an excellent electronic dance record.
Look for a publisher who deals in both electronic dance music and traditional music. These days publishers are much more likely to deal in electronic music and the quality of the album will be higher than traditional music publishing. Look for a publisher who has published electronic dance tracks by major names such as Afro-Cuban, Paul Criminals, Squarepusher and Akon. If you don’t see any of these records in your area, don’t worry, they are not the only ones available. There are literally hundreds of electronic dance albums being published every week and the quality is superb.
Quality Dance Music CDs should have bonus footage on them such as interviews, unreleased songs and rare tracks. It is rare that you will find the full length of a song on an electronic music CD. Most of the time the bonus material is simply a few seconds long. Sometimes it comes with the CD so don’t assume it is included, ask the publisher directly if it is or not. Also you need to check carefully to make sure you are buying an original that has not been bootlegged.
Make sure the publisher has great customer service and offers a return/refund policy. You want to be confident when purchasing this type of electronic dance music CD. You want it to sound good. Ask about the customer service staff at the publisher. They should be very helpful and always have happy customers.
Get your new dance CD before the party so you have time to properly review it. Check it out with friends, family and others who you think might enjoy it. You don’t want anyone at the party going home with a duplicate. If you don’t get a positive response from your initial list of bidders, try again the next day or the day after the party. Sometimes bidding gets out of hand and you will get multiple bids for the same record.
Finally, set a budget before you start making electronic dance music CDs. Having a budget ensures you won’t overspend on the purchase. Also setting a budget helps limit the number of items you need to purchase for the electronic dance party. By setting a budget and sticking to it you can have a great electronic music CD to give out at your next party.
