Today I’m excited to announce that BUTR has partnered with BitTorrent to bring you stellar up and coming new music from buzzworthy artists. BitTorrent has launched an app store similar to the iTunes app store but everything is free (and legal)!! So for all you BitTorrent fans out there now you will get to download lots of free music hand-picked by me!  Whether you’re into funky riffs, stadium anthems or you’re on the hunt for the next Radiohead there is something for everyone. Read all about the launch of the BUTR app on BitTorrent featuring the 13 artists listed below.

If you have never downloaded music before via BitTorrent you will need to install the uTorrent client .  If you already have the client installed make sure it’s updated with the latest version (2.2.1) so you have access to the app store.  You can also browse the BitTorrent store online but if you have a PC  the store will appear in the left hand column of your uTorrent client as pictured below:
















It’s important to note that the BitTorrent app store is only available on PCs at this time.  It will launch on Macs later this year. If you are on a Mac (or PC) and have the uTorrent client already installed click on each artist name below and the torrent file will automatically appear in your client and start downloading the album.  I plan to add more artists to the BUTR app via the BitTorrent store every month!

Approximately 120 million use BitTorrent every month so this is a great way to expose your music to an enormous built-in audience.  If you want to submit music for consideration to be featuring in the BUTR app email Kami at
