Fan of Avicii Discover the dark side of technological abuse.
Companies have feared pirates through the ages. The Carthaginian navy, the Berber pirates and in the modern context, piratebay. They all recorded their names in fame. Taking it a step further, it has been discovered that a number of Avicii's unpublished songs can be purchased with Bitcoin. at Music Mafia. The site has the reputation of being a leaked music store, which has no complication on the sale of Bitcoin.
Recently they released a snippet from an unpublished song by Avicii, Change A Thang. A Reddit user also released this short fragment of the song and subsequently an unofficial Twitter account with the handle @AVMusicNorway, mentioned the loss but added that it is unlikely that this will force the song to be released anytime soon . It is also speculative to know with certainty whether the entire track is available, or just that snippet.
A bit of history for the uninitiated, Tim Bergling who was better known by his Avicii name of art, was a Swedish musician, DJ, remixer and record producer. Almost five months after his sad disappearance, his fans were thrilled to know that they could continue enjoying some of his new music. In a recent article, music producer Nile Rodgers mentioned The Sun that, before Avicii's death in April, held a series of recording sessions for almost a dozen songs. However, he had refused to comment on the fate of those traces.
According to EDMTunes, now a fragment of Avicii's track "Change A Thang" recorded with Mike Posner, has emerged on Music Mafia. It is said that "Change A Thang" will be followed by other unpublished traces of Avicii.
For the former and for the real, a bit of mafia music. The website had its bad reputation when it leaked parts of the Kanye Wests album last year. The site states that it provides "tracks of artists recorded years ago and that have never published them", as well as "exclusive beats of the biggest producers". A bit more alarming, along with pre-released music videos, the site also presumably makes available e-mail addresses and phone numbers of the artists. The working model of Music Mafia is simple, offering users access to unreleased tracks in exchange for Bitcoin. The songs are accompanied by a wallet address in cryptocurrency and can be downloaded after payment in Bitcoin.
If one tries to look for the site today, it is inaccessible. The Recording Industry Association Of America tried to close the website and succeeded, partially. Music Mafia seems to have seen the threat and prepared backup domains.
The rumors have been in overdrive about who might be behind Music Mafia. While some think that the website is the result of someone powerful in the music industry, most think this is the work of a hacker who was able to access a study network of registration. In any case, these things are not ideal for both the irreducible fans of the artist and the reputation of the cryptocurrencies.
