However there are still some flaws. Robert Baker, a SoundCloud user and 1/2 of We’re Not Friends had this to say about the new iOS version. “The new app does exactly what it was created to do, notifications are instant, the interface is easy and it runs flawlessly.. but it still leaves users in the dark.

Keys N Krates Unveil First Single Of 2015

Known for their hallmark blend of hip-hop infused electronic beats, Keys N Krates have proven to be one of dance music’s most unconventional juggernauts. The trio comprised of a drummer, turntablist and synthesizer/keyboardist has spent the last seven years bulldozing their way past DJ-driven comfort zones and onto global dance floors as paragons of shape-shifting productions. They have partnered with UK songstress Katy B to bring forth ‘Save Me’. It is a pulsating masterpiece of bouncing beats that melds together pitched up vocals from the UK songstress with multi-layered percussion lines. Stream it here: Buy “Save Me (feat. Katy B)” on Beatport Stream more »

Though the companies publicly claim the partnership is “to help the company and its music partners better understand the sharing of content on the platform,” it’s not unreasonable to speculate that SoundCloud may be looking to implement a monetization program similar to that of YouTube, more »

How Much Do EDM Artists Really Make?

And it’s better than it was five years ago. The amount that artists get paid from digital music and services like Spotify has been widely discussed for many years now. One of the most memorable instances was in 2010, when Information Is Beautiful (also responsible for a great book of infographics) published an infographic based on a post by The Cynical Musician that broke down just how many monthly streams a solo artist would need to make the US monthly minimum wage. The number – 4,053,110 – was depressing enough before taking into account how much music would have to be streamed for whole bands to make more »
