Jet-Life
Just Enjoy This Shit is the motto behind Jet Life’s brand of hazy-aimless-cool rap. Okay, deal. We’re all for a crew that’s always been about fans first; giving away new tracks for free, and bringing mixtapes to the masses. The question Jet Life asked us (and it’s a big ask, and it’s a crazy ambition): is how do we bring mixtape culture forward?

Our goal is to make it interactive; more like how we listen, watch, and play in our ordinary webbed lives. So, in partnership with Jet Life, we’re working on a new BitTorrent Bundle: a fan capsule built for the Internet.

“When the discussion began with BitTorrent, it became apparent that that Bundle format could help us reinvent and grow 2.0 mixtape culture. Jet Life has built a massive audience by embracing a DIY, direct-to-fan mentality from the start. We’ve always put listeners first. BitTorrent allows us to reach these fans – as well as one of the largest audiences online.”

Austin Leigh Briggs, Jet Life Digital Marketing and Brand Strategist

The Jet Life BitTorrent Bundle will feature new music from Curren$y, Young Roddy, Corner Boy P, Fiend, and the rest of the Jet Life crew. It’ll also contain HD footage, interactive tour posters, catalogs, exclusive contests, and rewards you can redeem offline, at shows. You’ll be able to unlock it right here, starting July 30th.  

In the meantime, the crew’s entire mixtape catalog is up for streaming on Soundcloud.  J.E.T.S.

About BitTorrent Bundles

The BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.

Each BitTorrent Bundle, like the one created in partnership with Jet Life, allows artists to distribute content to 170 million BitTorrent users. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a donation. The idea is to make each song a storefront; and each file more valuable, each time it’s shared. Got ideas for the next BitTorrent Bundle? Hit us up.
