Discover your next favorite artist for free: Mixtapes
DatPiff is a website and mobile app that takes mixtapes and makes them available for anyone to listen to. The tapes are also available for download onto your computer for no charge. The site also allows aspiring rappers to sample beats for their own rhymes for free.
A mixtape is an unproduced, compiled list of songs attesting to one big statement. The first mixtapes were on 8-track tapes until the early 1980s. During this time, the typical music fan used mixtapes because the equipment to compile tracks was limited in availability. People could make a private tape for someone or a party mix. After the innovation of CDs and MP3 players, mix tapes became irrelevant. DatPiff has the capability to revolutionize the mixtape.
Unfortunately, the website is limited in content when it comes to genres. DatPiff was generated for a specific audience and only offers R&B, rap, hip-hop, trance and other forms of electronic dance music. DatPiff makes it possible for you to download an entire selection of instrumentals, put them on your phone or iPod and go practice your flow. Look through your favorite artists’ mixtape repertoire, or scope out DatPiff’s sponsored section to find more mainstream artists.
Visitors will find a section titled “Hot This Week.” Here you can find mix tapes with the most downloads of that week. Famous artists such as Trey Songz have mixtapes, as well as local artists like HI.Q.
