With all the stories surrounding Soundcloud doing mass takedowns as well as reports that they have allowed Universal backdoor access so that they can remove files without warning, people have decided to look for Soundcloud alternatives.
Here is a list of alternatives for both original tracks and mixes.
The one that most of the big name DJ’s are using and has always been used instead of Soundcloud.
The only downside I can think of is you are not able to download the mixes.
This one seems to be Mixclouds main rival with one main difference, they allow downloads of the mixes.
One of the main music upload sites that not only you to upload your original tunes but also choose whether to sell them or not. You can choose your own pricing structure such as free (limited to 200 per month), name your price or a specific price.
You can also sell merchandise from your page.
A music upload site that pre-dates both Soundcloud and bandcamp. Unfortunately it looks very dated and only allows 128kbps files for basic accounts.
Upload your music and you can set it to only allow people to download if they tweet it. However, there is only an option to add a buy link outside of twitmusic instead of being able to sell from the website itself. Just put in your bandcamp links instead.
This is but a small list of Soundcloud alternatives that stand out to me. If you know of any other mix or music upload sites then please comment below.
I’m of the firm belief that EDM is an acronym of Electronic Dance Music that was used mainly in the USA and has now came over to the UK because of the more commercial Big Room House infultrating the charts and events.
People in the UK seem to believe it’s a subgenre of Dance Music and use the name to slag off the more commercial material i mentioned earlier.
I started using the term EDM to describe my music even though i produce mostly bouncy Hardcore. I started doing this since learning a few years back that electronic dance music was gaining popularity in the US.
