You're waiting for these services and websites to provide or recommend music and not actually doing the footwork to search it out.  That's not really how most people find new/different music, and cert

I'm not quite sure why you're asking for help, but shooting down every single bit of help you get. DJing involves some (a lot of) footwork on your part, and knowledge of where to Do that footwork, the

Spotify absolutely isn't 'all edm'. I've discovered a fair bit of new music through it in several different genres. Sure, if you use the Spotify radio you may get stuff that isn't for you (just like l

I don't like Spotify because it's all just edm. I used to use 8tracks all the time and find really good stuff there but all the mixes are now 5+ years old. Playmoss is dead. Last.fm is no longer a radio site. Youtube offers me things that are overly specific. Bandcamp is not mainstream enough. I go to various clubs, they all play the same tunes. I've recently become a dj and need to find music to play but I don't know where to look. Any advice?

If you like to stay on top of current music then a good way to do so is to check the top 10 or 20 or 100  current hits of your genre.

I.e. Google "top 10 rock music 2021" or "top 20 hits indie music 2020" etc..

If the website does not offer snippets of the song to listen to (or the whole song even) then you can also look your preferred songs up on Youtube, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Spotify, iTunes (now called 'music'), Beatport, Amazon, bandcamp and I'm sure there are more out there.
Listen to the songs and if you like them, buy them :) 
Another tip is is that if you like an artist to follow them so you'll stay updated on new releases. 

Good luck!
