It’s easy to forget that not too long ago, a digital music store, particularly one targeting a DJ clientele, was simply without precedent. Yet, this was precisely the case in 2000 when Soulfuric label heads Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy began to formulate a vision for what would one daybecome Traxsource.

There was a growing digital demand for our music and that of our labels” explains co-founder Brian Tappert while describing those early days. « We watched as illegal pirate sites filled this new digital demand while desperately trying to get the current distribution networks to sell CD’s, but they all said real DJs play vinyl. At that point, we knew we needed to do something substantial« . And in October of 2004, Traxsource launched as one of the first Digital Download sites in the world.

Fast-forward to today, with its place carved out in history as a pioneer of the digital revolution, Traxsource reigns as the worlds finest underground music store. With laser-like focus, they provide the finest blend of upfront underground music downloads to their die-hard clientele of DJs across the globe. Traxsource is a music store with the attitude of an independent record label that provides their own unique soundtrack for the underground in high def AIFF, WAV and MP3 formats.

Maintained with love and operated by a staff of DJs whose passion for the music clearly matches that of their patronage, the roots of Traxsource’s unique, music-first mentality comes in no small
part from its history and direct participation in the scene. « Every aspect of what we do today was directly influenced by our lives as producers & DJs and by running our record labels… » Says cofounder Marc Pomeroy.  Traxsource’s mission is simple, to be the destination site for House & Techno music fans who desire more than the ‘mainstream’ experience. « This is a labor of love for all of us, myself and our
entire team eat sleep and breathe the music » said Sheldon Prince, Head of Operations and Chief A&R.

After a decade in operation, Traxsource marches on, maintaining a strength of vision and selfdetermination that grants it a distinguished position amongst the persistently expanding electronic web market. So to what can we ultimately attribute Traxsource’s long-standing endurance? It’s all about staying legit. « We’re passionate about the music we love and still curate everything in a very old fashioned way: We listen to it. » Brian Tappert.
