- Update for December 31, 2020

Hi. This is Victor Vale reporting. 

As you may know, the website had previously been shut down due to a massive DMCA claim. It was officially the end for us until the DMCA claim was later revoked as it had nothing to do with us. The media present in the claim was not present on this website. I cannot go into detail as to what it was exactly but what I can say is that the claim was for an infringement of copyright for a movie that was not available on our website - movies have never been present on this website.

The website is slated to return in 2021 but we do not have an exact date yet. There is much that is going on behind the scenes and it will take some time before the website can return to its former glory. Changes are being made, links are being updated etc... We are still in the middle of a global pandemic and that is affecting some the staff members. Again, it will take time before the website comes back online.

Hip-Hop will return but with restrictions due to past abuse. Those restrictions will be revealed once the website comes back online. The staff ruled 2-1 in favor for its return but were well aware of the section's problematic past.

Vinyl rips will become a reality some day but we don't know when. A suitable scanner for the record sleeves has yet to be found. Once this problem has been solved, they will be readily available for everyone.

Mediasurf will return as a free website as it was prior to the shut down. As always, using Adfly comes with a nasty after taste of horrid tech support scams. The staff will monitor the links for said scams but we also ask all visitors to chip in and send us screenshots of any scams you may find along the way. We will do our best so that you won't have to but it is something you should consider and know about when the website makes its return.

Before the shut down, several bands/artists were already on a "do not post page" and unfortunately, that list has been lost but the website as it is now does not feature those acts. Whatever was on that list will not return and this decision is final. Please do not ask for said acts to return.

This post will be updated with new information once it becomes available. Until then, stay safe and have a very Happy New Year.

  12. Hip hop fans go crazy for free shit (I'm guilty of that) and sometimes we ruin it for others. I dont think its coming back we had like 3 chances and we blew them xD

  13. I dont care about rap, I want my alternative country back! 😭 you guys were the only ones who posted the first pressings of uncle tupelo where as everyone else had remasters. I'm glad you're coming back.

  14. I would also like the hip hop section to come back, each person has their different musical taste. I don't care about alternative country.

  15. Does this mean we will get the vinyl rips after all? My heart melts.

  16. OMG thank u guys, u have been a source of hope to me, since i started to download albums from you exactly in a very very dark moment of my life. I almost commited suicide because of this depression. I met someone who brought light to my darkness, but it was for a brief moment, i thought she was the one, but sadly her mask fell off and i saw the true beast behind the beauty. Now my depression is worst than ever, all i do now is just work, work, work. I need to escape from this neverendig routine, every day feels exactly the same. I lost my phone thanks to an asshole who just decided to stole it from my locker at work, so i lost my entire library of lossless music. I'm so glad you are coming back guys. Nothing but good vibes for you, greetings from Chile

  17. Yo i'm really hoping the hip hop section comes back but only if you turn off the comments. A lot of hip hop sites dont have comments section because all they do is spam requests and other bullcrap. I think if you bring it back like this we can have a hip hop section again for a long time. Happy holidays y'all

  18. Do we know if its coming back free? Like it was before with Adfly? See you guys in the new year. Please be safe.

  25. Great to hear that you will be back soon. Please keep the great work especially with "first press" (non remastered) CD releases and maybe also with vinyl rips, as you intended before the site went down? All the best for you and 2021.

  32. This is awesome news, I just discovered this site and hip hop was awesome only in June 2020. Boom, some idiots ruined it and hopefully we can ban the noise as I enjoyed the hip hop part. Happy New Year!

  35. Hi loves! Lass here. I currently don't have access to this specific post so I thought I'd share where we are right now.

    We are currently updating all of the links in the website. Given what happened previously with then shut down, we don't have access to the old Mega accounts anymore so we are starting from scratch. We also don't know which links are still active so we are basically doing everything from scratch again. This is why it is taking so long for us to get back up and running.

    We will be providing label numbers for every entry we post. The label numbers were already present within the metadata of the files but they will now be included in every post by default from now on so you will never have to worry or wonder about which pressing you are getting from us.

    We don't want to open up prematurely but we may just do that if the demand continues to increase but will ruin the user experience for everyone.

    Thank you so much for all of the positive comments. I am currently updating all of my Grunge and Post Grunge entries. I'm currently up to the letter P in terms of bands. I hope to you all very soon 😊
