Big things are on the horizon in digital music distribution. iTunes revolutionized buying and selling mp3′s for pop music, and beatport has done a great job doing the same for dance music. Even with these great places to buy music many of us still spend hours googling for new tracks one by one. Hard to fault anyone for doing this because its so easy and for the most part the final product is the same. What if there was a place where you could get all the tracks from your favorite labels 2 weeks before they get released, plus ticket giveaways, and all for a flat rate of 10$ a month ?
Welcome to drip.fm a new music distribution service for premier labels and their fans. Some of the launch partners include our hometown favorites Dirtybird, Mad Decent, Stones Throw Records, and Fools Gold. Ive been a member with Dirtybird and Mad Decent for the past few months and its well worth the 10$/month. Just having all the new releases two weeks before they drop makes it worth it for me, throw in WAV and 320kpbs downloads on every track plus freebies from their back catalog and its a slam dunk. This is future of music distribution, straight from the labels to their fans with no middle man. I know what its like to be a starving DJ but it feels good to support the artists and labels who bring us gems like Justin Martin’s Ghettos and Gardens, Booty Clap, and Bauuer’s Harlem Shake. This is just the beginning and were lucky to have access to so much music for so little money, if anyone remembers buying vinyl at 15$ a track like me you’ll appreciate how good we’ve got it nowadays.
