Created just over a year ago in April 2010, camelbackmusic.com, home to Camelback Music, is a music blog that posts daily mp3 downloads for free listening. Camelback’s song catalogue varies greatly in style and genre, with music ranging from dubstep and techno to pop and rap. Popular artists on the site include Ellie Goulding, Mac Miller, Tate Tucker and Split Second.
Many of these artists’ songs have yet to become popular – some don’t even have current record deals. However, Camelback is changing the game for musicians and allowing them to go viral. Camelback asks its site visitors to save downloaded tracks for no more than 24 hours, encouraging users to support up-and-coming artists by purchasing their music if it’s available on iTunes or any similar type of music store.
Users can navigate about the site post by post, search for specific artists within the label cloud or dig through the monthly blog archives. Posts are typically divided by artist or genre, allowing users to quickly find multiple songs that they will enjoy without having to search the site in its entirety. With countless tracks to offer, Camelback is sure to be a hot trend of the summer.
