    Seeing as the site first took form in these forum back in 2008 it only seems fitting to announce the closure on here.

    The indiegogo campaign raised a staggering £55 (£50 which was from my brother :burn:)

    We did have a few more donations not through indiegogo which bought the total to £95 !!!

    i don't really blame people, the site is old and soundcloud now with their practically unlimited pro account for £70 odd a year is much better value.

    I'm losing my job in 4 weeks time, so it looks like its time to hang up the gloves and close

    Its going to leave a SHITLOAD of broken links on the forums and websites which is a shame. I really hate to see this amount of music getting wiped but i just can't afford it anymore.

    Thanks to everyone who contributed to the site, and the very....VERY few of you who donated over the years.

    Would you be willing to choose an ideal, compressed format to float the catalogue to P2P?

    @DEFTIL - will close 1st July 2013

    ill do whatever i can to keep the music up, as long as it doesn't cost me a big server fee.

    Wouldn't putting it onto p2p or torrents still require an initial seed?

    dnbset is just an aggregator that finds links from other sites, they include links from beatplexity so that wouldn't be much use

    Looking at about 2.4 TB

    currently 35470 files in the public_html folder

    Sorry braf. Thin k I still ahve the majority of the uploads O've donme saved on m,y RAID.

    You've done a gentlemanly service for many years and you have my undying respect for it.

    I'll continue to upload to dnbshare and hopefully find alternatives to Mr Evil "Exclusive 'I've turned the treble up to 11, this mix sounds like ass after my fagg0tting around with it" Concussion."

    Fuck mixcloud you aids ridden cuntfuck. Dunno that I;ve ever bothered to rehost a readily downloadable mix with the treble turned up to 11 and called it an exclusive. I just want people to listen to fucking good drum andbass, I don't give a fucking ratfuck where the source is from, I've never wanted plaudits, I just want people to listen.

    And mixcloud is tedious and annoying and made ten times worse by your "exclusive, treble enhanced mixes" that sound like ass. Do I apprecirate your efforts? YES, of course, I love drum and bass but fucks sake, treble, 11, NO. At least even post the original source for fucks sake. LIke the Rinse FM shows or soundcloud links. Christ on a fuck.

    i have a 24hours delay 24hours 7days, FM stream = same quality as podcasts.
    You know what: The tedious mixcloud is almost as popular as soundcloud and its free, life time archiving (used by many popular djs, events and clubs), no server issues or closing like the beatplexity or delated files. Listenable via app on every time for lifetime plus automatic tracklistings :)

    Why do you listen to my mixes when they`re worse in your eyes?
    you contradict yourself RIP TABLE :thumbdown

    a real shame, got so many over the years.

    is the whole site being pulled or jsut he files? it owuld be good to have a searchable database of what was once on there so that perhaps someone can reupload to another host in future, and so that links across the web don't die completely.

    not like you to be a dick about it mate.

    you seem to do it for your own self aggrandizement, even posting your "HQ" (lol) links to shit bitrate renamed files from mixcloud when the original source is still available.

    Damn, just did a little search for Silent Dust on there... it seems we are far more popular on Beatplexity than our own Soundcloud!

    Sorry to hear that man, went through the same thing myself at the start of this year. One of the reasons i havent been doing a lot of mixes/mixing recently, had my mind on other matters.

    Hope you find a new job soon :twothumbs:

    Sad it's come to this :fire:

    I have a few mixes that i havent posted up yet because they were a part of a series that i wanted to compleate. I'm never going to get the rest finished before the site closes so i'm upping them now so that people will have a chance to downloadd them untill the 1st of July. After that i might bin uploading mixes.

    Really have appreciated the site you've kept going for these years having a site where you could upload mixes and not worry about them being deleated has been a godsend.

    You Sir Are A Legend :slayer:

    Thanks for keeping it going for as long as you did. You've got my respect and thanks. People like yourself don't get the appreciation they deserve for the selflessness of sites like yours. :tea:

    So Paul, what kind of money do you need to keep the site going?

    Everyone post favorite mixes from Beatplexity that may be difficult to find hosted on other sites so others can download them and possibly upload somewhere else!
