Soundcloud’s increasingly stingy copyright policy on DJ Mixes has been a pain to deal with not only for artists themselves but also for myself, as I try to have DJs we interview for the site put a mix together for us. I feel its a nice additional to the text and gives readers a way to preview their style. With Mixcloud being almost forgotten it seems like all hope was lost until online music streaming juggernaut, Spotify stepped in.
Today at the International Music Summit in Ibiza, Spotify and Dubset have reached an agreement that would allow Spotify to enter the the live mix and radio show sphere. At least for now it seems like some prayers have been answered and Soudcloud might just become obsolete.
What do you guys think of the news?
