AfterDawn: Tech news Over one million downloads

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 20 Jun 2004 7:58 User comments (3) Over one million downloads Our side-kick project,, reached one major milestone today, when the 1,000,000th song was downloaded from the site. evolved into a service for indie artists back in January, 2001 when we transferred our artist promotion service there from (indie artists have been part of our service since the very beginning, from June 1999).

Currently has almost 6,000 tracks from over 1,500 bands and all of those tracks can be downloaded freely and legally. Many users have expressed their satisfaction to the service by emailing to us and we're pleased that the service has managed to gather a loyal userbase that seeks alternatives to the everyday "Top 40" musical selection that mainstream media broadcasts.

We'd like to thank our users -- and specially the artists who distribute their music via -- for making the service what it is today.

*Applauds* Shows that true musicians don't make music for money, but for music's sake and enjoyment.
