Artistserver.com apparently shut/shutting down
« on: October 09, 2014, 11:19:59 AM »
I have been on that site since pretty much Gideon (Electronicscene.com days) started it up. Apparently this is something to do with revenue (I was paying $40/year for past handful or more there) and I got no email stating this was happening/happened. Rather disappointed with that as I was on the site in the past couple of months or so and saw nothing on it stating it was shutting down.

Anyone have information link it in here as I'd like to find out what happened.

The really horrible thing to me is I can't remember if I've heard of the site or not.  I'm not sure.  I think I have.

Sorry you're losing a site you enjoy and pay for.

It came about after electronicscene.com went down if I recall correctly. Same guy started that site up. Initially was mostly electronic music related, but some time later it opened up to other genres. Too bad it went down as that was one of the few sites I have my music up on. Soundclick, bandcamp, reverbnation are the 3 that are currently active. I may look for another site that caters to electronic music  in the same respect *or* stick with Bandcamp/Reverbnation. I just don't want to be paying for multiple sites if I can help it. I see one increased the size of the tracks but have to check my mail on who it was (recently announced in email to me).
