The nerd-om of file sharing services just got a whole lot cooler. From beta to cloud-based glory, “We Transfer”, an online application designed to send files too large for email, teams up with music-artist Deadmau5 in an effort to sing a song a bit further from the likes of Silicon Valley.
Now, and until March 3rd, fans of Deadmau5 have the chance to download for free (and legally, cough cough) the electronic artist’s lastest contribution to the music industry: “a collection of sixteen previously unreleased tracks”, under the collective title stuff i used to do.
While the We Transfer download is actually limited to just the first thirteen songs from the upcoming Deadmau5 album, there is no denying that even thirteen songs is a pretty generous gift to all of the young, fabulous and broke out there.
The promotion is, no doubt, in-part an attempt to garner a broader range of users for the Amsterdam-based We Transfer; however, both involved parties recognize the free downloads as a “celebration” of Deadmau5’s freedom as an independent artist, and thus his ability to “share”, for free, his music with whom he wishes.
However, for those curious, the full sixteen songs: the original thirteen plus three-more exclusive tracks, will be available for purchase by all digital retailers beginning March 3rd. In the meantime though, download stuff i used to do right here, for your listening pleasures— and a happier bank statement, naturally.
