    Shellife | Shellife | Music | 2010



    Shellife is the child of My Bloody Tracker and Twee.se, it's a specialized music/music video tracker that doesn't allow any "mainstream" music to be uploaded. If you're looking for Lady Gaga or Radiohead, I'm afraid your search will not yield any results. Other than the "Popular Music" restriction, this is pretty much a general music tracker, but you will find an abundance of Electronic, Shoegaze, Dream Pop, Indie, Experimental, Punk, ect..

    Every user has the ability to upload their own torrents upon registration, but the Uploaders User Class have freeleech on every torrent but are asked actively to support the tracker by seeding everything they download. Also Legends which are ex-staff have this ability too.

    Shellife has some very special features, they have Freeleech & free torrents. Freeleech should be self-explanatory, but free torrents are well....free. You will not receive any download or upload for this torrent. Free torrents are designated by the original Uploader. Shellife has a bonus system, where you gain bonus points from either seeding, filling requests or when you receive thanks from another user. Bonus points can be used to either purchase upload credit or invites. Also we have Fanzines for download and there is a site radio & recommendations/other artist you may like which appears after a search for a torrent has been executed.

    For Shellife being a niche tracker it has a very active userbase, both on the site & the forums.

    Shellife's aim is quality over quantity, both in their users and available torrents. So while invites here are freely obtained, finding someone with account is the hard part. Occasionally, but not often the site does have open registrations.

    Ha why does this tracker dislike Radiohead so much?
    Anyway, is it hard to get an invite to this tracker? I enjoy discovering new bands, and it looks like this is a good place to do so.
    Edit: I read the end of the review, which said invites are given away freely, but it is hard to find members.

    Unique tracker.
    Though I'm a member of this tracker just for few days I can add some information in addition to what has been said.

    This site has great technical (code/programming) base. It has integration with discogs.com and last.fm, and it is very easy to add releases (upload torrents) you only need to type artist name and select the album\release from pop-up float window which contains information from discogs and 90% of the upload form will be auto-filled. When you browse torrents if you click on artist you can read short info about it and listen preview from last.fm.

    Shellife has nice and welcoming community, though i have just joined it I have already made some friends there, and it feels like that everyone know each-other in this community. Looks like the core of this community has nice collection of CD's they ripped and uploaded to the tracker, because amongst usual scene releases and torrents "copied\moved\imported" from other trackers, shellife has exclusive torrents (which are actually marked so "exclusive", and you can't upload them to other trackers).

    If you are listening non-mainstream music shellife is great tracker\community to participate in.

    I found some good stuff on here. If you want to join this tracker, I'd recommend going to their IRC channel.

    I joined this tracker a few days ago. I'm not able to seed at all, it seems there are very few leechers, it's a pretty niche tracker. I've never heard of most (any?) of the music there, which I know is kind of the point... but with 0 leechers on my torrents, I don't think I can build a very good ratio. not giving up yet!

    On some smaller trackers you really need to upload stuff yourself if you want to have a good ratio. Can't speak specifically for SL though

    It's been so far a day since I joined. The tracker is open now, if I'm not wrong. I loved that two-line write-up about 'mainstream music', they had. And, after that I just couldn't stop myself from joining. You belong where you belong.
    Anyway, the database is not so bad and not so good as well. It's sort of so so. I, on the other hand, was looking for 24 192 flacs and I found flacs but couldn't confirm if they were at least 24 96. Many of them are lacking logs. But they did have strict rules in the upload section and they strongly recommended uploaders not to upload any transcoded or re-encoded stuff. So, I guess they should be fine. And, yah, they don't have old stuff, at least not the ones I was looking for. But pretty much most the torrents, that i saw, were finely seeded.
    It's not gazelle based. Though the browsing isn't that bad. There are genres and then sub-genres. So, it's like if you click rock, you'll get garage rock, acoustic rock, acid rock etc to select again. You can add certain artist, certain album, certain format etc to the search too.
    They start you with 0 upload. But there are lots of freeleech and the bonus system seemed pretty good to me. So it shouldn't be too hard to get a good buffer.
    Finally, if you have a taste like they do and not really into flacs or 24 bit stuff, that is your place.
