We are back with two excellent online resources for music fans. Here are two specialized music torrent trackers that are currently open for signup; SatClubbing and Music-Torrents.Org. Some of our older readers may have heard of the former site since this is not the first time we’re featuring SC on this blog. Music-Torrents on the other hand is a promising new site that’s yet to ride the waves of publicity. Despite being overshadowed by giants such as What.CD and Waffles.Fm, both these trackers are doing pretty well in terms of adding new content. SatClubbing primarily caters to the Electronic music genre while Music-Torrents adds around 300 new torrents including scene releases, on a daily basis.
SatClubbing is one of the veterans amongst smaller music communities and has been online for nearly four years (since 2007). Based on a customized TBDEV script, SC is known for its nice clean user interface and informative torrent index. The site currently tracks torrent packs, albums, singles, livesets of mostly Electronic, Techno, House and Trance music uploaded by both scene and P2P sources.
As of 9/5/2011, SC tracked around 17000 active torrents. A staggering 125000+ torrents have been uploaded to the tracker in total, since its inception. In case you want to become a member, signups will be open throughout the day on 9th May 2011.

Music-Torrents is a relatively new private tracker compared to SatClubbing but its growth has been rapid. According to official statistics, the site adds around 300 new torrents on a daily basis. The total torrent count hovers somewhere around 24000 which is quite impressive. Unlike SatClubbing, MT does not limit itself to a single music genre. Instead, music related to 40+ different genres (mostly scene releases) are indexed.
Based on a xbtitFM codebase, Music-Torrents incorporates all the standard features of a private tracker including a bonus points system. If you are interested in joining, registrations are currently open.
