We are promoting music blogs.
Music blogs are promoting music.
We are promoting music.
Shuffler.fm is committed to support both the music artists, writers and producers and their created content as well as the music websites and blogs that make this content available on the web, often solely for promotional reasons. MP3s are posted for sampling purposes only, and often for a limited amount of time. Frequently, this music is also made public by the artists and labels themselves and we are glad to support them and their listeners. Most blogs embed (licensed) music services such as YouTube, Vimeo or SoundCloud instead of MP3s. If you like anything you see on one of these blogs, please support the artist and buy it (MP3, album, t-shirt or concert ticket)
Should any of the tunes (MP3s) on one of these sites however be yours and you want it to be removed, the best solution is to mail the blog or site-owner and tell them. They will probably remove the music as soon as possible and when this is done, the bookmark will also die in Shuffler.fm. Often music blogs and sites use YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo or other (legal) music services to post, and embed, legal (and licensed) music on their blogs and no MP3s.
If your music is available online, we try to encourage bloggers and publishers to include the appropriate metadata with the music making your music easier to found and spread. Shuffler.fm also acknowledges the source and the author and redirects every play to the source where the music was bookmarked, helping the original source to generate extra traffic to their sites.
