Why is the download on beatport? The answere is very simple. We like it, that there are atrists, spending time and money to pamper us with music. So I think this is a small thing, the minimum to give something back. Please realize, that the DJ only gets 10% from the price you'll pay for the whole set, the rest will be shared between the artists and labels, ... and be sure, that I'll spend that 10% to a social assoication. My intension never was and still not is to earn money with selling my best friend "music". I just think, that the artists needs to get honored for their great job, also the labels, ... to run all this, costs money.
I'm really a friend of the modern "use than own culture". But specialy to share music is nothing exploiting the unique resource mother earth. And to share means, giving anything away to get something else back, not only to get. And usually the "givers" of the music share don't realy give it away, they just multiplicate it. This is no way to run the good music spring sustainable.
Annother point, a very big point in my opinion is, that Beatport totally legalises the mix. Soundcloud not.
Don't missunderstand this, this really is nothing to earn money for me. Be a part of that ones, safing the good music springs. Anyway you are free to listen to it via Soundcloud.
All the best to all of you
