Howdy, welcome to ccMixter.
Thanks for uploading the rough mixes, that will definitely help you get more remixes as it gives a point of reference.
Here’s a couple of things that might help things:
uploading 8 a cappellas at the same time will actually decrease your chances of getting remixed, at least in the short term. By keeping them on the site a long time, eventually people will get around to them but timing your releases here over a period of weeks would allow remixers to absorb each one. The way you’ve done it, people will pick one of the 8 you uploaded last night and (most likely) move on to other folks as newer ‘pells come in.
your fx are probably burned into the track(?) If not, you should definitely upload the dry ‘pells without any FX to give the producer/remixer the ultimate freedom of expression.
You could replace all the 20 or 30 tags you put on the uploads with just ‘rap’ and way more people are likely to find it in the a cappella browser in the rap section.
I’m just saying these things historically and statistically in an effort to help you get as many remixes as possible based on past community behavior - your case might forge new community behaviors, you never know…
Thanks for your advice i apricieate that is my first time in this website and i have a album out with 16 songs various artist im promoting and basically im giving for free trough Download cards so i think i can create a free share community to everybody. thanks again for your advice im happy you took time to check us out and i will fix the files. and do my best follow what you told me thanks for that

Well I’ll second the “upload without effects” thing, but you’ve got some good rhymes going here. Keep ‘em coming!

Seconding the tag request reduction. Other artists names or styles mean nothing to remixers, plus all those people get enough publicity as it is.
Are you on commission ? :-) However some nice pellas.
