We weren’t surprised at the news that someone had cloned Grooveshark earlier this week following the streaming service’s shutdown. But, as TorrentFreak has uncovered, it turns out that the site is actually a reskin of a completely different filesharing site: MP3Juices. 

“A search for any term, any artist or any song, returns exactly the same results – in exactly the same order – on both sites,” explains the news site. “On that basis it’s probably safe to presume that they are either (i) the same sites behind the scenes or that (ii) they use the same search engine and/or the same source content, wherever that may be hosted.” This, despite the new Grooveshark’s creator having claimed that they had been backing up music from the original Grooveshark before it shut down, in order to relaunch it.
