There’s an insane amount of noise about SoundCloud in the world right now. And it’s just that, noise. The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away. Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.
Along with each of you, we’ve built this incredible creative community of artists, podcasters, DJs, producers and more who are the driving force in pushing culture forward in the world. That’s not going to change. Last week we had to make some tough decisions to let go of some of our staff, but we did this to ensure SoundCloud remains a strong, independent company.
Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Some of you have asked how you can help–spread the word that we’re not going anywhere and keep doing what you’re doing–creating, listening, uploading, sharing, liking, and discovering what’s new, now and next in music. SoundCloud is here to stay.
*airhorn* Spread the word: your music isn’t going anywhere. Neither are we.— SoundCloud (@SoundCloud) July 14, 2017
We’re gonna keep providing you with the tools to discover, share and connect.— SoundCloud (@SoundCloud) July 14, 2017
Thanks for all the love and support. Keep discovering and sharing the music 💯— SoundCloud (@SoundCloud) July 14, 2017
ぼくは SoundCloud と MixCloud が聴いてる音楽の大部分を占めてるから良いのだけど、手放しで喜べないところがあって、
Today, after careful and painful consideration, we took the difficult step to let go of 173 SoundCloud staffers and consolidated the team into two offices: Berlin and New York. We are extremely grateful for the contributions of each and every staff member who will be leaving SoundCloud, and we wish all of them the best.SoundCloud » A note from Alex Ljung
プレイリスト機能も大分ヤバいので、せめて MixCloud レベル行けると良いでしょうが、そんな体力もう無さそうだな、という感想です。
