Goodbye Soundcloud

If this commentary is being reposted, you probably have no idea who I am, have never heard of me and probably don’t care that I’m deleting my Soundcloud account, but I’ve got a story and perspective that needs to be told.

I’m a DJ, producer, remixer and I run a ‘netlabel’. Consequently, I’ve had a personal Soundcloud account since it came out and used it because I felt it would be another free promotional tool in my arsenal; once it became a popular outlet, I created an account for my label too. I’ve always found it to have some promotional value, even if the quality of the music on there has dwindled over the years, so I didn’t mind the time wasted posting material there. That changed, however, when one of my original works was flagged as infringing upon someone else’s copyright and what would be required for me to prove I didn’t do anything wrong.

I posted a new, original work for people to listen to and give me feedback. It’s forthcoming on my label, so I figured I’d test the water a bit. However, today, I get an email which said the track was frozen because Soundcloud’s copyright algorithm determined my track was infringement:

Merry Techno Xmas

technoXmas

 

No, it’s not December yet, but this is a mix for you to use/enjoy this entire holiday season. Maybe you want some killer house & techno to drowned out Aunt Mildred and her story about cats you’ve heard a hundred times; maybe you’re romping around Best Buy, looking for that special gift for yourself or maybe you’re driving this holiday season and need something like a fine cognac for your ears as you do… look no further. Remember, this is the season of giving, so share with a friend!
