Deadmau5 closes his Soundcloud

Breaking news from “way too early this morning” – Deadmau5 has decided to close down his soundcloud account. Some (not all) of the tracks will be available on his website, but not all of those will be available for free streaming. It's a deeply depressing move for those who us soundcloud as a streaming service or for keeping updated on all the artists' new releases.

While he didn't state any reason for the shutdown, unquestionably this is a business move that was done to increase the revenue$. Subscribers to his live site pay a monthly fee to listen, so that's just simple math. But will that work? For die hard fans, this is unlikely to happen because they will already have bought the songs. For blogs, it adds another unnecessary step to the tedious process of finding new releases. Most blogs posts (including ours) are from Soundcloud or Youtube, so the trend has been for more artists (and not less) to put tracks on soundcloud. Piracy on soundcloud is possible of course, but that wasn't mentioned.
What do you think?
I'm sad. I've subscribed to Joel's soundcloud since day 1. RIP #fuckmylife …
