please be having a look at www.slatepipe.co.uk.
theres a 15 minute krautrock kind of thing to download in the popup window on the enter page which we made from scratch and performed live in a week. then if you look in the downloads section theres plenty of stuff to listen to which has been done either with an old tascam 4 track, a roland vs840 and a regular pc.
have a look and a listen and let me know what you think

wwooooo! out there, but a nice site nonetheless. A real touch of the being slightly odd being about it.
I think it's affecting me...

I couldn't dig the music, but then I'm quite a mainstream kind of guy, and this stuff is so far from the mainstream the drinking water probably costs about £50 a bottle.

Dude, your link has a stray full stop (period) at the end. But I like the site, very good.

Didn't listen, at work, but the site looks good. Nice balance of cleverness of design, without losing the obvious, ie links to information which is what a site exists for. Good job.

is that one from "temp" a spam?

Didn't like that thing in the signature, so I've adblocked it.
Not the best place to first-post I would have said. But I will stand humbly corrected if I see the person's post count go up.

Perhaps I misunderstood the thread's purpose, but I understood it to be a place where you showcased music communities/artist websites that you're working on:

"I know a lot of forum regulars have got music sites... here's your opportunity to whack them up and tell us what you're doing... don't be shy..."

I just wanted to embed a little Flash in my post seeing that the feature was there - being Active X, this may have prompted your browser agent to throw an alert up (Gregster). I'm no stranger to spam, and being a webworker I have to face that crap every day. Thumbs up for your vigilance though.

Anyway, visit addasong.com if you get a chance and sign up if you're in need of yet another platform for your original music - I've worked my proverbial a** off on this site and I'm trying to get more artists on there. I guess its virtual base is in Medway, Kent - where I am - but we have artists from all over the place. It's been lovingly hand-coded by yours truly and has NO commercial links or ads whatsoever.

I'm also in the habit of upping people's space, features and bandwidth if they simply log-in from time to time and upload their music - a gift for simply participating. The site does have inbuilt IRSC coding and Paypal option for those that wish to sell their musical wares. When DRM and the UK Internet music infrastructure has settled I'll think about doing a proper launch with serious features such as integration with the official download charts, licensing protocols and other emergent music-based web technologies.

And when I get some more capital of course.

Cheers.

Yes, music production came to a stop for a few weeks whilst I got to grips with putting this together...anyway, there's free mp3s and video clips as well as info on our maximum ear-wiggle technology for your entertainment on the site below.

Yep, that's what it's about. Greg's just being cautious... we do get the usual spam here, but's there's a world of difference between your stuff and say CokeMusic.

I like the site. You've done a good job with what is a rather over-done genre. The world probably doesn't need another CokeMusic but more artist-driven download sites can't be a bad thing.

I'd suggest the trick is getting a coherent vibe going with your artists and visitors... people don't want the 'record shop' experience, they want the club or small label experience. But good luck with the whole thing...

ISRCs and all that tend to come up in the music biz forum. You might get some interest for that facility there.

started redesigning my site (how often do I do this!?)

the idea is that the rooms will have objects, and as you move the mouse u get infomation for the object below the room, so if you want to access your files you click on the filing cabinet....

still designing it at the moment... its either gonna work or suck...
its taking time to do it all in piant tho!

Well, I just redesigned my site - it's from a template, but to be fair I've made quite a few changes...
