Geek’s Guide to Free mp3 Downloads: IRC

There are a whole host of ways that people use to download music, but it is unquestionable that the first method that got mass adoption was the Napster p2p service, then followed by Kazaa and finally Limewire and BitTorrent. What most people don’t know is that downloading music was going on long before p2p was even a glimmer in the eye of it’s creator – simple file transfers were happening every day via “Internet Relay Chat” (IRC) servers. Back in the day, searching for tracks was a complicated affair and you needed a fair amount of command-line prowess to figure it out, but nowadays there are simple yet little known ways of gaining access to the high quality and constantly updated content still graciously hosted on IRC servers by dedicated individuals who believe strongly in sharing.

What I have for you today, boys and girls, is a simple and refined way of finding completely FREE music with no catch, all rolled up into a simple to follow video tutorial. The quality of the files is always great, the downloads are fast and really you’ll wonder how this secret has been kept for so long. Now I know I sound like a salesman trying to pitch some phony product, but I assure you this method really is that good. All you have to do is sign up and buy… Nah, just kidding! Just watch the video and you’ll see how simple it is to do – straight from a geek who has been doing this for years! Just remember kids, don’t download things you don’t already own.
