Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

File Upload/Distribution Sites

I originally posted this on the DM Blogroll, but I thought I would cross post it here also.

--

I've decided to start sharing other music related resources here. The main focus of this blog will always be to share all the wonderful music blogs available on the internet, but I would also like expand on that idea, and make it a great place for all things music. Next, I plan to make a list of freeware music software. If you have any ideas on music resources that I could add please leave a comment.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who is sick of Rapidshare's dominance of file uploading. There are plenty of great alternatives out there, but unfortunately they are overlooked by many. In my opinion the best sites are those which distribute files to several upload sites. These are known as file distribution sites. If you know of any that aren't on this list, please leave a comment, and I will add it. If you know of a friend or site that you frequent which is guilty of using rapidshare, please point them in this direction. Hopefully we can break people from using rapidshare.

Do you have an account with MassMirror? Whenever i try to upload to that site, it goes up to 99% and then gives me an error. I have no problem downloading from it.

grapepowder: I haven't been having any problems with massmirror, however Sharebee doesn't work for me now. I'm glad that you are at least able to download from massmirror because I've been forced to use it as of late. I wish that there were more services such as these, but I'm sure it puts a huge strain on servers.

Ya, i can't upload to sharebee either, although i can download from it. I can upload to megaupload, mediafire, and sendspace. Haven't tried to upload to others. So far i haven't had problems figuring out how to dl from all the main sites, altho there are a few weird ones that never work (can't think of them offhand, but they're often unused choices off massmirror/sharebee).

I've never seen or used it, but word on the streets is the best site right now is ifile.it. Of course, it might not be for long if too many people start using it, but i thought i'd share with you since this is one of my favorite blogs.

I'm currently looking for sites, such as sharebee and mass that upload to multiple file hosts. I just finished reading about the features, and they seem pretty good. I especially like that guests can resume downloads and use download managers such as flashget. Thanks for recommending it. I'm going to give it a try.

I just tried xlice.net and it worked for me. It's a multi-upload site and lets you choose 6 distributions. I tested it with Nick Cave's Firstborn:

Upload Frog - It uploads files up to 100mb on Rapidshare, Megaupload, Depositfiles, Zshare, Sharedzilla, Netload, Sendspace, Filefactory, Badongo, Load.to, Easyshare, and Flyupload.

Also supports remote uploading too!

Thanks for mentioning Uploadfrog. I'll be sure to add it to the list the next time I update it.
