This site has been in operation for over 7 years and continues to remain popular as pre-release music can be directly downloaded from the site. There are currently over 88,475 music titles on the site, in comparison to 52,000 last year. The site used to be hosted from France by OVH Sarl, but in 2015 the site moved to a new hosting provider located in Russia, MIR TELEMATIKI. The site has a global Alexa ranking of 20,541 and a ranking of 498 in Spain (81.8% of the visitors to the site are from Spain). The site receives in excess of around 45,000 unique users per day.

The site has over a dozen music sections where users can upload and download infringing files. There are normally many links to cyberlockers from where the most popular albums and tracks can be downloaded. By providing multiple links the site ensures this material is always available for download. This site is clearly designed and operated to maximize its role as a distributor of infringing content, and is actively engaged in ensuring that content remains available.

In 2012, the Spanish music industry submitted a complaint to the IPC regarding this site. The case was closed in January 2014 as the site had removed the infringing links detailed in the complaint.

Goear is an unlicensed streaming website hosted from Holland by Serverious Holding. The site offers hundreds of thousands of music files for users to stream and download. Currently the site has more than 450,000 files available (approx. 50,000 more than last year). The site is very important for both Spanish and Latin American users, but even more so for Latin America in 2015 following the closure of Grooveshark in May 2015. According to Alexa, the site has a global ranking of 33,852 and ranks 3,744 in Spain, (16.9% of the visitors to the site are in Spain). The site receives in excess of 50,000 unique users per day.

Many of the pages on the site display advertising banners which generate revenue for the site. Goear also uses social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Previously an Android app for the site was available on the Google Play store but this was removed on referral to Google. However, the iOS app remains available on the Apple store.

To use the website, a user simply needs to type in the artist or album name they want to listen to in the search box following which they are redirected to a page from where they can stream the track. Rights holders have submitted take down requests but any action taken is ineffective and slow.
As with Bajui, in 2012 the Spanish music industry submitted a complaint to the IPC regarding this site. In 2013, the IPC held that the site had infringed the intellectual property in 10 albums. Goear’s lawyer filed an appeal at the National High Court regarding the IPC’s decision to end the administrative procedure.  The National High Court dismissed the appeal and the Supreme Court has recently disqualified this case. In parallel, in March 2014, the Central Administrative Court issued a decision refusing to allow the ISP for the website Goear.com to suspend its service to the site. The judge held that such disruption to the site was not proportionate as the IPC had only demonstrated that 34 out of the 6,833 files were still on the site following the previous administrative decision. AGEDI subsequently appealed the decision before the Appeal Central Court of Administrative Litigation and the appeal was upheld. In January 2015, the Madrid High court found that the site was liable for direct copyright infringements and that it could not benefit from safe harbour protection under the E-Commerce law.

On 7 September 2015, the IPC requested that the site remove approximately 100,000 URLs. The site has posted the letter they received to their site. In the event of non-compliance with the removal order, the relevant internet service providers will be required to suspend access to the site.

Bajui is part of grupoet.com, which operates unlicensed services including music, movies, series and pornography. The site has been popular for the last 6 years and pre-release music can be downloaded directly from the site. There are currently over 37,745 music titles on the site. The site is supported by revenue generated by advertising on the site. According to Alexa, this website has a global ranking of 22,626 and ranks 550 in Spain (65.7% of the visitors to the site are from Spain). The site receives in excess of 54,000 unique users per day (over 120,000 page views).

There are typically many links to cyberlockers from where the most popular albums and tracks can be downloaded. It is also appears that 6 to 7 users are uploading most of the links. The site appears to monitor the status of links, as once links are removed from cyberlockers they are replaced with new ones, ensuring the material is always available to download.

The album art is also available on the site. This site is clearly designed and operated to maximize its role as a distributor of infringing content, and is actively engaged in ensuring that content remains available. While there are mechanisms for securing takedowns of specific links, that is an inadequate and ineffective “remedy” for a site that is engaged in wilful distribution of known infringing materials.

The Law on Sustainable Economy (“Sinde Law”) came into effect in Spain on 1 March 2012. The Sinde law provides for an expedited procedure for the removal of illegal content from websites or for blocking access to illegal services. The Spanish music industry (Promusicae) submitted a complaint to the Intellectual Property Commission (“IPC”) regarding this site but the case was closed last year as the specific links included in the complaint had been removed from the site.

Audiocastle characterizes itself as an urban music site that is updated daily with the hottest urban music, videos, and albums. The home page also provides a telling disclaimer that states “We do not claim any of the materials that we upload and any copyright infringement complaints will be executed immediately! It is our policy to honor all take-down requests!”  The operators acknowledge that they upload the content and thus are direct infringers of copyrighted works.  Honoring takedown requests does not absolve them of liability.  Moreover, it is clear they simply don’t “honor” takedown notices as anything that is removed is simply reuploaded to ensure the files remain available through the site.  Until recently the operators of the site uploaded the infringing files to a hosting site Sharebeast.com.  When that site was seized by the Justice Department last month, and all of their files became unavailable, the site simply moved their files to a new service, dopefile.com to ensure that downloads would remain available to users.

The RIAA has sent the site over 50,000 infringing URLs for removal but files remain available.  The Google Transparency Report reveals that Google has removed just over 146,000 infringing audiocastle URLs from its search index.  The jumping from audiocastle.net to audiocastle.co and now audiocastle.me domain names is likely in response to Google’s demotion of the domain in search results.  Each time one of their domains is demoted from the top search results, the site is able to quickly reappear in the top search results simply by registering audiocastle with a new top level domain.

Audiocastle has a global Alexa ranking of 23,449.   According to SimilarWeb traffic data, the site is averaging 7 million visits a month with 55% of that traffic coming from the United States.

Stafaband is an unlicensed service providing free on-demand streaming and downloads of a vast catalogue of popular music. On its home page it welcomes users and boasts “On this website you can download free music, play and listen audio songs for free and no Registration!”  The site’s home page offers all of the latest albums under a section entitled “new albums 2015” using the official album art, and provides preset playlists under such categories  as  “Best Rock” organized by decade going back to the 50’s, and “Best Country.”  The site purports to respect copyright laws, and offers an email address for reporting infringing links.  However, active links are always available to the vast array of offerings, despite the fact that the RIAA alone has notified the site of nearly 200,000 infringing URLs and the Google Transparency Report shows that copyright owners have sought the removal of just over 3.7 million infringing URLs.  After touting itself as a source for free music in its banner headline, the site disingenuously advises users behind an inconspicuous “disclaimer” tab that users should delete files from their computer after listening, warning that if they don’t delete them “you’ll break copyright protection laws.”  Despite this, it knowingly offers not only currently released, popular music but also albums that have not yet been commercially released (i.e. pre-release music).

Stafaband has a global Alexa ranking of 10,311.  According to SimilarWeb traffic data, the site is averaging 7.4 million visits a month with the majority of traffic coming from Indonesia and the United States.   Stafaband has been blocked in the U.K. by court order.

Itemvn is an unlicensed music service that makes an enormous catalogue of popular music available for free streaming and download.   The site is entirely in English and there are thousands of albums and tens of thousands of individual tracks available to users.  In addition to a general search capability, the site neatly organizes albums under categories like “Most Popular,” “Hot Artists,” “Billboard Hot 100.”  The albums and singles are presented along with other materials like the official album art and song lyrics. Unlike many other download sites of this nature, itemvn hosts the content itself.  While the site purports to allow users to upload content, the most popular files are tagged as uploaded by itemvn itself.  Itemvn has a global Alexa ranking of 30,057.  SimilarWeb traffic data show the sites averages 5.4 million visits a month with 40% of that traffic coming from the United States. The site does not provide any data on how many downloads are taking place, but it does provide streaming counts.  One popular track is shown as having been streamed more than 700,000 times

MusicAddict proxy, unblock access

Proxies of this site: Proxy 1 Proxy 2 Proxy 3 Proxy 4 Proxy 5 

The .com domain of MusicAddict gives the site a lot of legitimacy, as well as the name that suggests the site is right for any music lover. The database is rich in providing a large amount of tracks for download while the user base frequency exceeds hundreds of thousands monthly. As a free music provider, MusicAddict is able to do its job very efficiently while providing all the music free of charge.
Functionality
Having a very user-friendly organization, the site allows for very quick searches for tracks through the search bar placed conveniently at the top of the page. The simplistic view of the site also allows for an attractive and appealing look while any visitor, including a first time user will find it extremely easy to search for music. The Top Music Charts bar on the right helps the user learn of the recent and most popular tracks that come out daily, which greatly reduces the effort spent by fans of these popular genres. Going further down, the site provides two additional categories: Recent and Popular mp3 downloads. The first revealing tracks that were recently uploaded while the second showing popular downloads based on user count. Similarly to the Top Charts, popular mp3 also shows some of the tracks but is rather based on the current download number rather than the popular viewing of songs in the social life. Each link further provides a small download button to the side, however, both clicking the song name and the download button still takes the user to the same page that provides the actual download link. In some tracks, links are provided to external mp3 sites while some tracks also allow for direct download upon clicking. This perhaps makes it less efficient in finding music, in the case where some tracks lead to a completely different site. Overall, the site is very safe and legitimate and like always, strives to provide top downloads of tracks.
Design and Suggestions
The design is ultimately easy to understand as well as very user-friendly in providing functionality. The theme is very easy on the eyes while a first-time user will surely be hooked by the quality of the mp3 tracks that the site provides. I would highly suggest that the site be able to provide direct download links in every track, however it is understood that most music sharing sites only provide gateways to actual downloads, making music easier to be found and downloaded.

MyFreeMp3 proxy, unblock access

Proxies of this site: Proxy 1 Proxy 2 Proxy 3 Proxy 4 Proxy 5 

Known to be one of the largest music sharing sites, MyFreeMP3 has little to no competition in the way that it provides music for its dedicated users. Beginning with the easy methods of finding music and up to selecting your music by the genre, the site has a huge database of tracks while even smaller sites will at times redirect you to this giant site to download your music.
Functionality
Similar to the look of a search engine, the site provides very easy searching for tracks artists, while it further allows to categorize between Artists, Charts, and Genres. The Artists category takes you to the large database of artists and bands available in an alphabetical selection, the genres page allows to easily classify music for any distinguishable user, while the charts page is currently unavailable. Having a Genres category ultimately increases efficiency in finding new music, especially for users who base their music findings on the genre they prefer, allowing them to even play the track before downloading it simply through the click of a button. The play bar automatically comes to life at the top of the site, allowing to switch tracks, change volume, and even skip to parts of the track, which makes it very easy to discover music. Each search result further displays the tracks in a very simple manner through a single long bar that also provides information like the bitrate and the song size, as well as the download button without the need to actually click on the resulting name. Each artist or band result also provides biographic information regarding the said artist or band, making this site even more beautiful and easy to get used to.
Design and Suggestions
One of the most appealing designs out there is the one of MyFreeMP3, starting with the calm looking theme that only works to suit the visitors’ needs. It is one of the few sites I have come across that is equipped with such a degree of functionality and design, not to mention the useful play bar for each single song that the user might want to try out. I would only suggest to fix the charts page and give it good functionality by providing charts for different genres and world regions.

RNBXclusive proxy, unblock access

Proxies of this site: Proxy 1 Proxy 2 Proxy 3 Proxy 4 Proxy 5 

RNBXclusive is a popular site for music sharing and was visited by millions of monthly users before its .com domain was seized. This was due to the accusations that the site used hackers to gain content by penetrating artists’ emails and websites. The site remains one of the most viewed for RnB fans as well as fans of similar music tastes. The new domain rnbxclusive.se now stands tall and offers free music to anyone; including daily updates of tracks, albums, and discographies.
Functionality
A very impressive functionality for a site that provides free content. The categories offer easier movement throughout the site and some popular categories are exclusives and videos that provide new content as soon as it’s available. The categories on the right are recent posts and upcoming albums which help users quickly gain insight into the popular recent uploads that are one click away. The site is basically used by many loyal visitors that also contribute by advertising thus making the site very stable in its functionality. The download category takes you directly to categories of albums, mixtapes, tracks, and monthly tapes that you can download easily. Meanwhile the download steps are one of the fastest as the direct link is provided next to the song.
Design and Suggestions
One of the best designs around is RNBXclusive’s. The cool looking background offers a certain darker appeal that highly matches RnB style as well as similar genres. Combining the darker appeal with the dark blue color gives the site a very beautiful design while only the two colors dominate throughout the site. Furthermore, each post is attractively uploaded in a scrolling style, giving in a retro appeal. One small thing that hurts my eye a bit is the search bar’s placement and the fact that it is full-on white. I would recommend giving it a blackish color as well as moving it on the front of the site.

Bomb Mp3 / Mp3va proxy, unblock access

Proxies of this site: Proxy 1 Proxy 2 Proxy 3 Proxy 4 Proxy 5 

The site was formerly known as bomb-mp3, while now it is known as mp3va or MP Eva. The site is very well made and as a music provider it is one of the cheapest sites. Of course this means the site is absolutely not free, but in terms of costs most tracks cost less than 10 cents while newer ones cost just below one dollar. The site is hugely updated daily with the latest albums, hits, and discographies, so as a paying user, you will not regret spending your money here.
Functionality
Naturally, a site that provides services for pay almost never fails in functionality. This one is very beautifully put together beginning with the nice-looking search bar that you can search the music through, as well as decide if you want to browse more songs, soundtracks, new releases, and charts to view the current best songs and albums. The site also offers free registration and two free tracks upon registering, which is not a bad deal. The banner in the middle of the site offers current special offers such as father’s day specials that give large bonuses to the purchaser. Functionality-wise users can easily maneuver through song searching and even view the latest albums as they come out and get special prices for them. And to conclude, the site is legit in selling its music so do not fear for your money, but as always you can use a side credit card or PayPal account just to be safe.
Design and Suggestions
The design is very attractive, beginning with the logo as well as the name Mp Eva whom I supposed is the girl in the logo carrying a flower. The site is very scalable to any width you require which allows for effective viewing by anyone. Every inch of the page is well contained and well designed and the bottom of the page offers ultimate support for users as well as information on compatibility with your devices, software, etc. I have absolutely no suggestions for this site and reviewing it was a great pleasure.

Due to their immense popularity they are blocked in UK owing to court orders in March 2015 as reported by torrentfreak.com. The site started operating in 2009 and still open.

Contrary to the current design trends, the site looks to be old fashioned yet user friendly. But it a little confusing to the visitor, and the search bar is hard to locate. This site is very popular in UK and has  been recently banned by various ISPs owing to court orders. They also have a chatbox at the end to shout out your hearts content 😛

Newalbumreleases makes available a substantial library of newly-released popular music content, as well as albums not yet commercially released.  The site features the most recently uploaded albums on the home page using album artwork.  In addition it organizes earlier posts by genre under menu tabs for Rock, Pop, Metal, etc.  The home page also offers a search capability for content by artist or title.  The site hosts its content on cyberlockers and provides users with links to services like Rapidgator.net and Hitfile.net from where the files are available for download.  All of the files appear to have been uploaded to the cyberlocker sites by Newalbumreleases as the download files usually include “newalbumreleases” in the file name.  As the uploaders they are direct infringers and takedown notices to the site are ineffective.

Mp3skull is an unlicensed service that provides unlimited free downloads and on-demand streaming of the most popular copyrighted sound recordings in the world.  Its sole purpose is to generate profit from the theft of music, and it makes no pretence about what it does or why it does it.  Virtually any commercial recording is available for free download or streaming through the site and its most popular offerings (“Top Downloads”) virtually mirror the Billboard Top 100 list.

Mp3skull is the most highly trafficked mp3 site of its kind in the world and the huge user base allows its operators to profit from advertisements on the site and from the distribution of adware and malware to its users. The site purports to be simply an index site for mp3s found elsewhere on the internet, but the site operates within a close web of loosely affiliated sites that provide the content for mp3skull.

For years the site operated from the domain name mp3skull.com, but has since jumped to mp3skull.to, mp3skull.cr and mp3skull.is.  All of these domains now resolve to mp3kull.ninja.

Since 2011, various copyright owners have sent notices on more than 3.3 million mp3skull webpages offering access to infringing files.  RIAA alone has sent the site takedown notices on 1.7 million URLs to no avail.

We suspect the reason mp3skull has been repeatedly jumping to new top level domains is to work around search engine demotion signals.  Major search engines now demote sites from search results based on the volume of infringement notices they receive for the site. Changing the top level domain name allows the site to bypass the demotion signal and reappear in the top search results.  Mp3 sites like mp3skull have relied heavily on search to drive traffic to their site.  The rapid movement between domain names makes it difficult to get a fix on Alexa rankings and traffic measures, but the mp3skull.is just a month ago had a global Alexa ranking of 7392, and SimilarWeb traffic data has the site averaging over 40 million visits a month.
In April of this year, several US record labels sued mp3skull in U.S. District Court in Miami seeking monetary damages and other relief.  The operators of mp3skull failed to answer the complaint and the plaintiffs are seeking a default judgement against the site.
