When talking about music streaming platform we directly think about Spotify, Deezer or Apple Music. But if we have to be realistic those platforms are pretty “basic” and don’t leave much room to new ideas. This is how SoundCloud wants to be different, after almost dying last year.
SoundCloud wants to be the platform used by young creators. For that it created new features and tools such as, edit contents, video tutorials and so on. This approach seems to be working, since the company is now counting 175 million users worldwide.
“Support directly the artists” is one of the new features of SoundCloud, allowing customers to pay directly their favorite artists. Which will give new and young artists a new argument to be on SoundCloud.
Another event pushed back because of the actual situation. We know how you are feeling. At first, Qapital event for Raw hardstyle was scheduled last April 2020, this didn’t happen. Then pushed back to April 2022. This is why we are not surprised to hear that they also pushed back X-QlusivePhuture Noize to January 29th 2022.
The health situation isn’t the one we excppected we have to be patient and wait another year to be able to party “like before”. In the meantime, here is the link from 2020 Qapital’s event.
It is happening, the team Daft Punk is sadly going through a separation. A video has just been released on YouTube where we see the group in the Desert with a countdown and after a minute, we see Thomas Bangalter exploding. The video is called “Epilogue” and we can only imagine before watching it that it shows the end of everything.
The group that started in 1993 and became robots because of an accident in the studio end their race in 2021.
The two Frenchie were iconic in the electronic world, this announcement feels like a bomb for everyone. The robots will be missed.
Here is a new feature for Soundcloud, giving the opportunity to his clients to pay directly the artists. Once more the group has come with a special idea for innovation. It is not the first time that the company tries to survive by having to stand out mostly because their first competitor is Spotify, and it keeps growing.
At the moment, artists are being paid on a “pro-rata” basis, meaning that the more people listen to a track the more money the artist gets. We can say that the new feature, maybe coming out at the end of the first trimester, will mostly help new artists and despite the cancellation of tours and festival, this is a new source of income.
It is not with any surprise that we learn the news, Charlotte de Witte and Enrico Sangiuliano got engaged! The Belgian and Italian artists have been on each other’s Instagram stories and it is only few months later that they make their relationship official. They even performed live in Ghent together.
The Swedish company came up with a new idea lately that isn’t seen from a good idea from everybody. For good reasons, they created a feature to be able to listen to their customers.
So, this feature is for Spotify to know what you are listening and being able to offer similar types of music, but like Facebook it is another debate about not having a private life and getting our details out of the app.
All you need to know is that you need to double check any updates happening on your apps (any apps) because the laws aren’t going as fast as the new features of each app.
