We have revised some changes on site in reponse to our regular user’s feedback”
-Removed URL shortners.
-Showing bearable and less ads than ever.
We have made some changes on site in reponse to our regular user’s “2020 feedback”
The first and most important change is our revenue model, 35% users choose to keep the site running with popup ads, while other 65% find url shortners easy over intrusive popup ads. So we have moved to shortners (you will see ads but only when you download something, not for browsing pages). There will be 1 ad per download. (Max. 5), after 5 shortners, you will not see more shortners during next 24 hrs. Our site still uses direct downloads from our server not external hosts.
There will be no site branding in file’s meta info. (i.e: We will not include “- FrkMusic.Net” following song Title in new files.
721 people responded to this option, 279 left blank.
Album Title Format:
– Removed Radio from side bar.
Removing popup ad will enhance your browsing experience, and will also help with the site loading speed, Ad view per download is clean and more fair than pushing ads just for browsing/opening pages. It was pleasure to read all the comments, unfortunately we are unable to respond to each and every user because of mass feedback.
Some changes were made to search, You can search by using release: ‘title’ OR ‘artist’ OR ‘title AND artist’.
We have reached 30000+ collection in our database, making collection bigger and bigger is not our goal, we tend to save unique sounds different than trending charts. We follow more than 300 artists & 80+ labels (for Non-Hindi music) regularly for their new releases.
Minor changes were made to UI elements.
+Added enhacements to Album art in album pages.
+Updated layout/style of Sidebar featured albums

Now we’re skipping some of releases from ‘Magic Records’, ‘Circus records’, ‘Clout.nu’ (in case if you harvest catalogues, download from other sources.) As most of releases on site, from past few week are just electronic trap, We don’t want to make it more dense on site. Our main focus is on quality and variety in balanced pathway.
