We’ve made a change in the way new music is added to Blip.fm search results. Instead of uploading mp3s directly to our servers, we’re making it easy to save the URL of songs that are already uploaded on your own server.
As many of you are aware, Blip.fm wants all artists to have the opportunity for their music to be heard on our service. Previously, that was accomplished with an upload feature for artists and labels. However, due to bandwidth costs, we have changed to allow users to save URLs to music not otherwise available through our search feature. If you are an artist or label and would like us to host your content (e.g., because your content isn’t hosted anywhere else), you can contact us at email@example.com, providing your name and full contact information, as well as a list of the content you represent; requests will be considered on a case by case basis. If you are an artist or label and have previously uploaded music to Blip.fm, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we continue to host your content, or simply save the URLs for the tracks in your Blip.fm settings, as we’ll be purging prior uploads within 30 days.
In short, the “Uploads” tab in your settings is now called “Music”. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience for anyone.
