SoundCloud Denies That It Will Block All DJ Mixes



Great News! SoundCloud has provided THUMP with a statement denying the claim made by Digital Music News that it will restrict DJ mixes.

Music streaming platform SoundCloud has refuted a claim that it may soon restrict uploads of DJ mixes to the platform. We reported yesterday via a report by Digital Music News, the article stated there was going to “significant and serious” limitations on the uploads of mixes. Citing an anonymous source that had previously accurately tipped them off to a number of major SoundCloud-related stories, the publication said that as of right now it is unclear what exactly these restrictions will be, but that they could include a “complete block” on all DJ mixes that are not fully cleared.

A SoundCloud said “The DMN story has no truth to it, at SoundCloud, we’re on a mission to create a place where all creativity can live. SoundCloud’s creator community, including DJs, is incredibly important to us.”

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.
