About five months back we posted our first invite giveaway for Underground-Ravers (UR). UR is one of those rare, invite only private trackers that very seldom have open signups. It’s a specialized tracker dealing with hardcore/hardstyle music and is made up of a small community of dedicated members. The tracker was an instant hit among our readership but the limited open signup apparently did not last long enough till everyone got in. If you for some reason missed out on the first giveaway or if you are one of our newer readers who weren’t around back then, here’s another golden opportunity to get into UR.
You may not have heard about Underground Ravers but the site is not a newcomer to the BitTorrent scene. They have been online since 2006 and is over 3 years old. In fact this is a site with a lot of history. UR was launched as a replacement for Ravetracker which had to shut down its operations due to legal threats. Ravetracker itself was started as a replacement for its predecessor Happy2bHardcore.
Anyways since its inception UR has slowly but surely made a name for itself in the hardcore/hardstyle music niche. Without a doubt it is currently one of the best online sources to download free music related to this genre. As of 19/12/2009, UR tracked over 1500 active torrents and had a user base of 700 members. Right now releases on this tracker span across 6 main categories; live, tape, video, vinyl, CD, other and digital. There are around 15 more subcategories which make music discovery much easier. The availability of exclusive non scene uploads adds even more value to the site. A screenshot of UR’s current interface and torrent index may be found below:
For several months, UR’s layout and tracker source has remained unchanged. There is nothing wrong with the current setup but massive changes are on the pipeline. According to site admins work on UR V2 has already started and many new site features and enhancements are planned in the new release. Currently there is no specific launch date set for the new version but below is a sneak preview of of what’s to come:
As usual, UR is currently closed for signup. But don’t let that worry you – site admins have again offered a special open signup link exclusively for FILEnetworks Blog readers. This signup link will be valid only for a limited time but there will be no limit to the number of signups allowed through the link during its lifespan. So make the best out of it and enjoy UR. Don't forget to read tracker rules once you signup - if you want to survive that is.
