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.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Jan 2016.

Hi everyone that is reading this. I've received quite a few emails and notes of support over the years from this community. I remember when the site changed in 2010, and it was difficult for me to feel so disconnected. Lots has changed since then, though.

I drastically changed directions musically in 2010. I wasn't happy with my songwriting and vocals, and started moving to instrumentals and remixes, where I think my strength is. I have released three albums since then - "V" (2010), "The Night Owl" (2012), and "VII" (2014). I'll try to get these uploaded here. I have a new album coming this year as well. I've actually distanced myself from some of my vocal work (my own voice is pretty grating), but I'll most likely leave the tracks on here.

I'd love to hear from you if you're returning to the site. Please don't hesitate to drop a note on my wall. Finally, if you are reading this, THANK YOU.

Melee (Beats used to go here) :)
