Mixcloud release the BETA of New Live Streaming Platform


It’s seems we may finally have a Live Streaming Platform for DJs.  As Mixcloud has started their new LIVE platform.

As lots of you will know Mixcloud, they have their ICE ‘Core’ licence which covers PRS, STIM and GEMA repertoire for their combined 290,000 members and repertoire for some of the leading independent music publishers.

This should massively reduce, if not eradicate the takedown problem faced by DJs, Producers and Creators when Live Streaming.

They said “Over the past month we’ve received an unprecedented level of demand from the Mixcloud community to build live streaming functionality. It’s a massive task that we’ve been working on day and night to get into your hands as fast as possible and we’re delighted to announce the first version is now available.

Please note that we’ve built Mixcloud Live and released it much earlier than we’d normally do and consequently there will be technical bugs and user experience flaws. Improving Mixcloud Live is now our team’s highest priority – it will get better every day. We’re inviting you to try Mixcloud Live and we ask for your tolerance on a less than perfect product.”

What do I need to broadcast live through Mixcloud?

You’ll need the following:

  • a subscription to Mixcloud Pro. Find out more about this subscription here.
  • a computer capable of live streaming
  • a steady internet connection
  • streaming software. See our guide to these here
  • a webcam if you want visuals as well

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
