SoundCloud's Next Big Move - Block All DJ Mixes?

Posted at May 16th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Soundcloud will soon be imposing significant and serious limitations as per Digital Music News. The restrictions, as leaked to Digital Music News by “a source with close knowledge of the company’s plans,” could include a complete block on all DJ mixes that aren’t fully cleared, a decision which would impact an extremely large percentage of active users. Still, for now it remains unclear exactly what these restrictions will entail though.

Already soundcloud has earned bad reputation by imposing heavy restrictions on several high-profile DJs, including Morgan Page, whose entire account was ripped down due to copyright concerns in March. Even though the page was later restored.


The source also conveyed that “I don’t think the DJs are going to be happy. The move will probably piss off a lot of subscribers too.”

Meanwhile, established as well as emerging DJ/producers appear to be migrating towards less-regulated platforms as Mixcloud and iTunes. This migration is only going to accelerate if Soundcloud puts these restrictions into action.

This story is still developing, so stay tuned for ongoing updates.
