Upload music

Carbon Logic is all about your tracks. Upload your music, listen to, comment and rate other people's tracks. Uploading is easy, just follow the helpful tips on the upload page.

You can upload music in mp3 format only, we recommend the highest quality possible. Carbon Logic allows you to upload as much of your own music as you like. You can upload just one song, an album, or your entire back catalogue. You can also tag your uploaded tracks with multiple genres, to improve cross referencing when browsing the site. You can remove your tracks at any time.

Carbon Logic is also a great place for uploading your artwork - the vast majority of users upload an image with their music. Different tracks with their thumbnails can be viewed simultaneously on the Shuffle Page. You can also re-shuffle all the tracks on the Shuffle page, to help till the fertile soil of Carbon Logic and unearth more sparkling audio gems.

New music is uploaded daily, and 50% of our users are artists bringing content to carbon logic, a rare statistic indeed in the world of web2 communites. Having great content has helped grow a loyal userbase of artists and music lovers who contribute their tracks and opinions.

New music community

The Web 2.0 community is a rapidly growing paradigm in our global village, and the speed of communication in the 21st century is set to increase at such a dizzying rate that ESP will soon be downloadable and the Borg will be round for tea. With mind boggling bandwidth, will infinite information sacrifice depth for multiplicity ?

How can we keep authentic debate on music alive?

To achieve this the carbon logic community is keeping some very simple house rules:

  • Carbon Logic members always do the talking and scoring (you can score tracks from 1 to 5), the Carbon Logic community filters the best music to the surface.
  • We let the community decide its future by making sure the community's feedback is our number one priority.
  • We listen to our community - our feedback page allows users to post comments, ideas and criticisms which are reviewed regularly.

For a Web 2.0 community to grow and prosper, users must feel there is a shared history. We archive all our monthly "most-played" charts, our shortlists and competition cycles, giving the community a great sense of continuity in the evolution of an exciting and dynamic music site.

Carbon Logic is a new music filter, a community that is wholly human, a hive mind sifting and debating its way through the unstoppable flow of music uploaded every day.

Carbon Logic is a fantastic new music community where every day you can stumble on some nice surprises, some bad-ass noise and a dynamic top-rated chart that would blow most ipod playlists out of the water. Make the Carbon Logic Community your own Community.
