Hey,

This is my first message to you in a while, but I wanted to let you know where CrazyPellas stands and why there’s been a lack of updates. The main reason for the lack of updates is I’ve been working on a new project, SendBeatsTo.com.

Rather than my first message to you in a while being a promotional email, I thought I’d give you a brief history of CrazyPellas and where I want us to take it from now…

CrazyPellas was started in June 2004; the internet was a different place back then and could have been described as “the Wild West.” There wasn’t a lot of regulation or rules, which meant there was a lot of piracy and grey areas surrounding the use of music. CrazyPellas was started as a place to share acapellas, instrumentals and samples – this meant we were in a grey area.

A lot of music sharing sites started to get shut down and raided between 2006-2008, not wanting to be next, we shifted focus to showcasing talent and hosting contests, which worked out well and helped boost CrazyPellas membership numbers greatly. We had a unique talent points system which members used to trade feedback on their music. Things were going great.

Fast forward a few years to 2010, other social networks started really taking off which meant less content was being shared on CrazyPellas and that has continued to fall despite attempts at alleviating that, such as adding codes to allow embeds from most social networks, creating how to videos, publishing articles and tutorials, removed all adverts, and as a last ditch attempt; disabling the talent points system so people didn’t need to earn points to share their music. The funny thing is; visitor numbers haven’t fallen and have in-fact been higher some months.

That pretty much brings us to now. There’s still a good few of you sharing your music for feedback, (I see you, thanks!), I publish interviews from artists, producers and musicians regularly and have a script sharing new mainstream music (legally) from a record pool.

I would love to get CrazyPellas back to 2008 levels and I need your help, $username! Share your music in the forums, leave feedback on others music, talk and share tips with your fellow creatives.

Thanks for reading, I would love to hear from you and I look forward to seeing you on the forums.
