So you went out to buy beats online and recorded with the beats you purchased. The next step is to create an album or mix tape here are some websites you should really check out. I have been looking for a few online Hip-Hop mix tape websites. These websites will allow you to upload your mix tapes and also allow you to promote your hip hop mix tape for free. I will be reviewing a lot of websites so that I can provide you with information which will help you promote ones Hip-Hop mix tape online.

Datpiff is one of the best mix tape websites online. Datpiff has become one of the top online mix tape websites to date. It has a very easy layout and it is an attractive design. The website is very easy to use and allows its users to navigate a basic layout, which means easy uploading your mix tapes. Datpiff offers free accounts which is a plus which allows you to distribute your mix tapes online for people to listen and or download. Another nice feature from Datpiff is that you need to increase you plays and downloads but don’t know how. Datpiff offers a player that you can embed onto your website to boost your plays and downloads, that is great. Datpiff has created a website which allows artists and Djs a place that they can display mix tapes to their fans.

Datpiff did a great job making the home page so easy to scan for new mix tapes. It allows you to view the most popular as well as the most downloaded mix tape. Creating a mix tape will help generate traffic to your website if your mix tape is popular enough to generate enough traffic. Another great feature on Datpiff website is the videos, uploading a video will help generate traffic as well as increase your online presence as well. Uploading a video is a great marketing method that will increase traffic to your website which I would recommend to anyone to do. You are able to increase your plays and download by purchasing Datpiff sponsored mix tape service which will cost you $50.00. Here is a question you need to ask yourself if you want to boost your plays and downloads, should you play the $50.00 dollars or not? I would recommend you pay the $50 dollars because it will allow your fans to listen and download your mix tape without having to sign up. Let’s be real for a few minutes’ people in general will not sign up to play or download anything because it does not take one click to do. So pay the money and move on to something else that will help increase your plays and downloads as well.

Datpiff generates over 450k active daily traffic and that is a lot of traffic. Datpiff makes it even easier for you to get more exposure by adding social network buttons for your mix tape page. Another added feature that this website offers is daily News from the likes of Vibe, XXL and VladTv.  If you are serious about your music career than you need to invest in yourself. To have your mix tape in rotation on their home page expect to pay over $300.00. If you are going to spend that much you better make sure you have everything on point, meaning down to the graphics. Datpiff is a great place to start marketing your mix tape online. The site could use more design work but for what it is used for they have done a great job with this website.

Verdict 9.5/10

The traffic that this site generates is not as high volume as but the layout of the site is very nice. Some nice features are easy to navigate, upload mix tapes and promote your mix tape. What more could you ask for when using a mix tape website. If you have had problems with other website don’t worry because they offer step by step guides to help people get going.

 There is not as much competition so that will give you a huge advantage when it comes down to promoting your mix tape. You are allowed to upload videos as well. Social networks are great, being able to share what you have posted is even better. They have social networks ready for you and which helps spread the word to others. You can get on the home page with top views and being top rated.  

The website also has a great chart system of new released mix tapes and popular mix tapes. If you can make it on that page you will increase your traffic which in turns means more downloads.

The Verdict 7/10

This website has a nice amount of traffic. Being around for two years has made a name for itself becoming one of the top mix tape websites online. The down side to this website is they promote new popular artists more than unsigned up and coming artists. Exposure is very limited but it has a large amount of traffic that is generated from well-known artists.

 Create a mix tape by uploading your own personal tracks.  If you would like to promote individual tracks this website allows you to do so. You are allowed to upload videos to which will allow you to obtain a wider view of audiences and they also have social buttons as well. Keep updated with News in the entertainment industry as well. Make sure to leave comments on other artists profile because this method will increase traffic to your profile over time.  Verdict 7/10

Live Mix Tapes is a free site that allows you to stream and download mix tapes. As a user you can search for music in their database. You are able to create your own custom playlists, listen to music and check out new releases. The site is updated daily and you will enjoy the free mix tapes.  In order for an unknown artist they will need to have a well-known DJ host the mix tape and they will be able to upload the mix tape for you. There are many well-known Djs that offer hosting services so make sure you are ready to pay to play. If you are not well-known then you will not be able to get you mix tape uploaded to this website so do not waste your time unless you are ready to pay for a DJ to host your mix tape. This website is more for well-known artists so find a DJ or if you are an indie label contact them and see what they can do for you.  You need industry backing in order to get exposure from this website which that’s it draw back.
