Did your takedown requests get lost in the post? DJ Sneak – who promised to take his music off digital stores in January – still has hundreds on Traxsource…

On December 29th last year, DJ Sneak decided to make a few changes to the way he did business. And one of those was to declare his music would be coming down from digital services. This was taken to mean download and streaming sites, although Sneak never elaborated further.

So since January, I’ve been helping DJ Sneak keep to his promise by regularly detailing how many records he still needs to take down on Traxsource. He had 613 tracks up there when this series first started. And it looks like I’m in this commitment to my readers for the long run…

Because at the last update, 596 tracks were on his profile. As of this morning, the number is 599. And the number has never fallen below 572.

Either DJ Sneak never had any intention of following through on his promise, or he’s since discovered he’s signed all kinds of in perpetuity contracts over the years. These are contracts in which the master recordings are signed over from the artist to the label – forever. And if that’s the case, it’s going to cost a lot of money to get them down.

Sneak has been contacted for comment…
