A Very Sad Day: Soundcloud Writes its Own Obituary
It is with great regret that I inform you all that the greatest thing to happen to the mixtape deejay since the cassette, may soon be no more. Apparently, Soundcloud now has a music recognition system that does not allow deejays to upload mixes that contains music that has been flagged by the copyright holder. You can go HERE to read all about it and read the angry comments by soundcloud users. Though this new policy has been in effect since January 2011, this is all new news to me. I discovered this the hard way because I was trying to upload my new Tarantino Breaks mix when I was informed that my mix would not be allowed to upload due to copyright infringement. This not only saddens me for the obvious reasons, but it bums me out because I freaking love soundcloud. Soundcloud is the Facebook for deejays. Now, it appears that I will be forced to find another site.
