Soulseek – an ad-free, spyware free, just plain free file sharing network for Windows, Mac and Linux. Its rooms, search engine and search correlation system make it easy for you to find people with similar interests, and make new discoveries.
Soulseek is a program for exchanging music on the Internet. You can search for music according to various criteria: genre of interest, song title or album name. The application is enriched with a chat function, thanks to which we can talk with other program users.
The original Soulseek user base around 2000 was composed mostly of members of the IDM mailing list, and most of the music first found on Soulseek was underground electronic music or music created by the users themselves.
