What is it?
deeprange_radio is a music sharing community designed to widen the horizons of its members and expose them to the infinite varieties that never get airplay on the radio. It is an outgrowth, revamp, and revitalization at Dreamwidth of the old audiography community at Livejournal, as well an absorption and rewrite of the original deeprange_radio.
Why do it?
Over the years, the debates have been the same. Whether it's sampling, mixtapes, or MP3s, it's all the same argument, just rehashed for modern technologies. The fact of the matter is that MP3 sharing communities & sites are one of the best ways to increase a potential market base because any music that is not Top 40, pop, "modern rock", or rap & hip-hop simply does not get any sort of wide-scale radio airplay, & thus people never know about it. Word-of-mouth & saying "I put some files on your MP3 player" ("I burned you a disc"..."I made you a mixtape") are the only ways even some well-known artists get promoted. People can't support what they don't know about, and they might not know they like it unless they hear it.
Who's in charge around here?
The Grand High Poobah of the Moose Lodge is gandhicrushkill. Other moderators shall be listed as and if they are added.
How does it work?
What is the posting form?
What are the other rules?
I don't know where I can post stuff!
Mediafire, Sendspace, Rapidshare, Megaupload...there's a whole slew of free file-hosting sites out there. I personally prefer and recommend Mediafire and Megaupload.
I dig this a lot! Can I help out in anyway?
Yes with an if, no with a but. As (if) membership expands in size, there may be a need for other mods. The gift of a paid account is always keen for a neater layout design. If you're the type who likes to promote communities a bit on your own journal, here's a small whipped-up banner to use if you feel to:
