What's up SA Mixtapes friends and supporters? We at SA Mixtapes are seeking supporters and sponsors to help us complete our site upgrade.
As many of you may know, SA Mixtapes was a direct download mixtapes website only. We made a few changes by adding soundcloud, and Wordpress so that you were able to listen to mixtapes, download single tracks or the full mixtape and see some community news from our WordPress. This began to cause more issues as we were now using SA Mixtapes, SoundCloud, and WordPress to provide a player with commenting and a all on one details page. Mind you between two people Twink & Thomas vs Christian Hip Hop growing on an exponential curve ie 1 becoming 2, 2 becoming 4, 4 becoming 8, 8 becoming 16 was overwhelming and still too much to do all for free while also having to pay the bills associated with all the parts. Family this upgrade is way overdue.
We desperately seek your help in completing this upgrade. Below is a brief list of what will be included in the new upgrade along with brief descriptions of the new pages. The new upgrade will allow & include the following:
-Upgrade to Old Pages with Tracking, Stats, & Sharing.
-Submissions - Submissions page is going away
. The upgrade provides submission buttons which open submission forms and allows you to upload your project in wanted category without waiting on us.
-Artist will have their own pages and players to embed on their websites, facebook, etc.
-New Releases such as Mixtapes, Albums, Singles, & Videos will have their own page with the ability to see stats, direct download, and comment on each post.
-Archives - Search feature & upgraded to categories. Allowing users to search and find any upload or direct download in all categories. WHAT'S NEW:

Producers Page - SA Mixtapes is coming to the aid of beat makers & producers. The truth is that no website can host a remix or cover beat without the real owners permission.
