Mixtapes, Beat Tapes, FreEPs, Demo Tapes, Leaks, Promos, Bootlegs, Mixes, ...
Welcome to droppd, the premiere hosting platform for all-things free music. Designed to support artists, delight fans, and work with the crucial network of bloggers that bring them together, droppd is raising the bar on mixtapes.
We built droppd from the ground-up to help artists leverage their freely-released music to drive real value. droppd is 100% free (with no upload limits, caps, or premium tiers), and 100% ad-free. Releases hosted on droppd live on clean and modern landing pages that promote artists’ engagements (like new album releases and upcoming tour dates) to fans, without any BS getting in-between.
Access to droppd is restricted to verified artist and blogger users, who can upload and manage content. droppd is not a discovery platform and does not support accounts for fans -- content uploaded on the platform is openly accessible to anyone, and is made available through widgets and links posted by our users on their sites and social accounts.
droppd is currently in an invite-only beta and will be launching soon.
Interested artists and bloggers can register now to request early access.
Better For You, Better For Your Fans
Releases you host on droppd live on isolated landing pages, optimized to drive fan engagements -- promoting your premium music and ticket sales.
We keep it simple for you and friction-free for your fans, by automatically finding and promoting your albums and ticket sales from leading distributors like iTunes, Amazon, Xbox Music, and SongKick.
You get a clean, modern, and professional site to showcase your release and promote fan engagements. Your fans get the music they love -- with no spammy ads, registration walls, throttled downloads, or any other BS getting in the way -- plus highly relevant info, like where to grab tickets to your next show.
Fly Widgets Show-Off Your Music In Style
Fresh, clean, modern -- droppd widgets show-off your music in style, on any site, and across all devices.
Select between responsive classic ‘list-style’ or rich modern ‘cover art’ designs to customize appearance and functionality to your liking.
droppd widgets put all the focus on your music, and nothing else, and are optimized to drive fans to your custom download pages, with no distractions or barriers getting in the way.
And Twitter! Do you connect with fans on Twitter? We got you covered, droppd widgets are fully integrated as Twitter Cards and are automatically generated whenever you tweet links to your releases.
Bloggers! Optimized To Support Your Site
We’re big fans of the diverse network of music bloggers and sites that help grow emerging artists and expose fans to great new music.
So, working with some of them, we built droppd as the first and only platform that specifically caters to you -- offering specialized user accounts optimized to you needs, with faster uploading and customizable widgets that give you more control over your visitors’ experience.
droppd is designed to help compliment your site, not compete with it for traffic. Links or widgets you create always direct to download pages that are isolated from the rest of the site, link-back to your site, and are cobranded with your logo, helping keep users there.
Fans! Quality Music, Quality Experience
No spam, no misleading links, no registration walls, no video captchas, no countdown timers, no throttled downloads, ... no BS.
We put the music you want front-and-center and provide fast, transparent, and reliable downloads without any crap getting in the way.
And we got you on audio quality too. Unlike other sites, we never downsample tracks to reduce file sizes, so you always get your music in the highest quality uploaded by the artist.
And tags! Ever download a release and find missing or poorly-tagged tracks? We’ve been there, and we know its a pain.. So we’re working to fix that, by manually checking each upload and cleaning things up for you.
Artist or Blogger? Can’t wait to get in on all this droppd goodness?
We’re launching soon, but you can register now to request early access as part of our invite-only beta.
Fan? You’re all set. Everything hosted on droppd is totally open to you, with no registration walls or barriers to access.
