Mixcloud is the new iPhone app that puts DJs in the mix
At last there is a decent mobile experience for the DJ-friendly streaming service. Mixcloud, the music upload and streaming service, released a redesigned version of its iOS app. This is a move to grab an extra share of the growing market to become the “YouTube of Audio”. Though its competitor SoundCloud has managed to command a lot more attention, Mixcloud still has a number of advantages that will appeal to demographics in which SoundCloud has no say.
Mixcloud takes care of DJs in a way that SoundCloud has not had a mind to. It’s the ideal app for DJs looking to upload and share their mixes. At the time of upload, they can tag their mixes with the tracks contained. In turn, royalties get paid.
With Mixcloud, it’s all win-win. Listeners are able to follow along with the track lists. When they make a purchase of the tracks they like and click on the “buy” button, Mixcloud gets a cut. There is no subscription fee and the service brings unlimited service.
