DnBShare.Com – Celebrating 10 years of Free Drum and Bass Downloads #WeLoveDnBShare
It seems almost like yesterday every DJ around the world found somewhere to upload and share their mixes. The site has kept its very minimal look with only very minor updates, as the original was simply PERFECT for what was needed!
Of course like any site it has its flaws (they would call them features), your mix would only stay on their database as long as it was receiving downloads. Its fair enough really as disk space maybe cheap these days, but it doesnt pay for itself! And maybe also that searching for something is a bit simplistic (it works 100%, but maybe could be better)
Advertising on the site has always been kept to a single standard rotating banner which on many occasions actually has some products Ive been interested in and purchased.
Basically the site has been there almost constantly (i remember 1 glitch 2-3 years ago it was down for a day), and been relied upon by DJs around the world since 2006.
That day when the site did go down a few years ago was around the time when Chemical Records closed down I think, and it made me think of the importance to the DnB Scene DnBShare.com actually is!!! Could DJs live without it? What alternatives are there out there? Mixcloud and Soundcloud may all look very nice, but they are hugely more complicated to put in track names, maybe pay a fee, graphics and artwork, description, hashtags etc etc when all a DJ wants to do is upload a mix and share a link !!!
We are not sure the exact date when DNBSHARE.COM came into existance in 2006, but it also could be regarded as a timeline of the Drum and Bass scene around the world, featuring the headline DJ acts, seeing the evolution of internet radio stations both past and present, as well as sets from bedroom DJs around the world, or producers trying to get their music heard. Weve done a search for mixes we have featured here on drumandbasslines.com over the last few years and come up with the following historical DnB gems you can download for free from the links below direct from the dnbshare.com website. Heres a collection of the best from the nineties- GRAB THEM WHILE YOU CAN :
In recognition of the service DnBShare has done the community, we would like to propose a hashtag
for DJs, producers or fans to use when they upload a mix or track to the dnbshare.com site. This hashtag then pushes dnbshare fully onto Twitter and Facebook as well, and gives people an easy hashtag to search for new downloads for the next 10 years.
Share the hashtag, share this post, and help spread the word!
CONGRATULATIONS DnBSHARE.COM !!! LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER 10 YEARS !!
