Digital DJ Pool Review Key Takeaways

This DJ Pool is a little bit different from all the other DJ pools. This DJ pool is not for DJs that want to DJ with mainstream music. This record pool is full of unknown and undiscovered artists and DJs. Digital DJ Pool is not just a DJ pool, with the ability to follow DJs and labels is has a social aspect added to it as well.

For Who is Digital DJ Pool the Right Fit

Digital DJ Pool is especially for you if you like to DJ with Hip-Hop.

I do have to add that Digital DJ Pool doesn’t have any mainstream music, just remixes of mainstream music, so DJs that like remixes and edits created by undiscovered DJs and artists, this DJ pool is perfect for you.

Digital DJ Pool Website

Look and Feel

The website looks really nice. It has a very simple layout, which I absolutely love. There’s not too much going on except necessary things, the things that I came for, music.

When you log in to your account the first thing you’ll see is a list of new music with the search filters on the left side. Again, it looks really simple but I really like the simpleness of it.

DigitalDJ Pool website

Unlike other DJ pools’ websites, this one does not have a light mode or a dark mode.

Usability

The website is easy to navigate because the menu structure is very simple. You can find what you’re looking for very easily and quickly.

Search Feature

The search feature is very impressive. Not because of the filter types but it looks simple and it’s very easy to use. Something that can be said about their entire website so far.

The filters you can use are pretty much the basic filter. You can filter by genre, BPM, version, key, and upload date.

Music Catalog

I will go over the music catalog in the way Digital DJ Pool has structured it on their website.

New Music

According to my research, Digital DJ Pool releases, on average, 256,8 new tracks every single week.

With a heavy focus on Hip-Hop and R&B, almost 49% of the total new releases go to that music genre.

16.2% is going to Electronic music and 14.3% is going to House music.

Feed

The Feed area is an impressive area where you can follow DJs and Labels. When you follow a DJ or a label, you can keep track of their song uploads, and when that DJ or label likes a song on Digital DJ Pool.

Digital Dj Pool feed

In the featured area, you can find new handpicked tracks that earned a spot in the spotlight. It’s a place for inspiration and discovery.

The trending area is once again a very organized place where you can spot the latest trends. All of the trends are categorized by the main genre categories.

Trends are calculated by the number of downloads in a set time period. You can check in here a few times so you’ll never miss a potential hit.

Charts

In the charts area, you can find the top 50 of every genre for every month. You can go back to the top 50s from way back in January 2015.

A good area to find some classics and throwbacks.

You can find the top 50s for every main genre category.

Music Downloading Limits on Digital DJ Pool

Digital DJ Pool doesn’t have a download limit. You can download as many songs as you like. There’s also no limit to how many times you can download 1 song version, like other DJ pools.

The Digital DJ Pool App

The Digital DJ Pool app has all the features, lists, and charts that the website offers. The only advantage to the mobile app is that it’s very useful to search, discover music and add it to your crates.

When you’re back on your computer you can download your songs from the website.

Digital DJ Pool Review Final notes

Digital DJ Pool distinguishes itself from other DJ pools by focussing on artists and DJs that are not (yet) discovered. They’re fairly unknown, yet create very cool remixes and create their own music.

It reminds me a little bit of SoundCloud, but smaller.

Digital DJ Pool offers a lot of music. The new music releases on their website every week are probably the most I’ve seen on DJ pools so far.

Something that can’t be overlooked though is that there is no original music from more familiar artists in the music business.

If you like to DJ with music from more familiar artists and DJs you’re better off choosing a different DJ Pool.
