SoundCloud provides a good place for music producers and consumers to get together and experience something special. The embedded player shows you how many plays each song has.

On the brighter side, there are many new bands and singers that you’ll for sure find something to your liking. Also, there are great remixes on famous tracks that you’ll never hear elsewhere.
It is worth mentioning that bigger artists only allow streaming. In fact, most, if not all major label artists are prohibited from offering free downloads, in relation to their contracts.

MP3juice.cc also comes with an MP3 cutter that you can use to trim unwanted parts on the intro on downloads. However, be careful when using YouTube-to-MP3 sites as the industry is clamping down hardcore on many of these sites owing to the fact that converting video into a free music download violates copyright.
MP3 Music Download Hunter
MP3 Music Download Hunter is a relatively latest introduction to the Android App space. Nevertheless, it is proving to be a solid option for free music downloads. The site hosts a wide range of music collections and has one of a kind search engine. With this site, you can download almost every music you want. It is remarkable that they still keep looking at the best free music resources while scraping off the low-quality resource. If by any chance you’re planning to use the songs for commercial purposes then you should check with the copyright owner. Otherwise, most of these MP3 songs should just be for personal use, just spread the good vibe and give these artists a chance to grow.
MP3 Music Download Hunter is available through the Google Play and has a modest rating of 3.3, which seems to be a little bit low. This is because most users usually expect major label content. Honestly, you can’t find artists like Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz or Taylor Swift, since MP3 doesn’t offer any content from such artists.
Other than scouring millions of copyright-free songs for download, MP3 Music Download Hunter helps you organize your music. This includes organization and storage for offline listening on your mobile or any other MP3 player, and this is great for anyone worried about cellular bandwidth charges.

My Mixtapez Music
My Mixtapez Music is known for a great music collection. Just like Spinrilla, My Mixtapez Music is all about hip-hop mixtapes. However, there are a few differences that hip-hop diehards will want to weigh.

Unlike Spinrilla, My Mixtapez differs in the selection, organization, and selected artists. My Mixtapez also puts a spotlight on Indie artists as well as emerging rappers.
There were rumors doing rounds that My Mixtapez Music was getting sued (but this is an unstable situation). Right now, the site hasn’t been deemed illegal, but you should be prepared for a rude shutdown, because this is how it goes sometimes.
