To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

Ever since the61 removed the stats on when music was submitted no one can tell when music is new or not. But since you have no comments I will assume you are new. WELCOME TO THESIXTYONE! Hope you have a grand time with the pimp beats you produce.
