SoundCloud continues to struggle. Even in the midst of its new $70 million debt funding, many analysts are expecting SoundCloud will fail. While we're not sure whether SoundCloud will be taken apart some day, we wanted to share with you 5 alternatives to SoundCloud that may be useful for streaming DJ mixes and podcasts.
Like many of you, we are one of the 40 million people that use SoundCloud on a monthly basis. Despite its years of struggling, SoundCloud continues to be one of the most popular music streaming websites for up and coming artists as it is a place to host their music and bring people together.
SoundCloud Alternatives for DJ Mixes
Digitally Imported is one of our favorite radio companies on the web. It has a great selection of different radio channels as well as a well-laid out collection of DJ mixes and live shows.
Digitally Imported doesn't allow just anyone to upload their own DJ sets though. Di.fm reserves this for artists and DJs that they have a relationship with. Also we want to note that Di.fm is for streaming use only. At the time, you're not able to download any of the mixes.
Mixcloud is one of the most popular SoundCloud alternatives. The streaming service is typically geared towards DJs and artists that use the service to upload their own mixes to the website.
Unlike SoundCloud, Mixcloud doesn't have any upload limits, but users of the service aren't able to download any of the sets. Mixcloud is one of the best alternatives to SoundCloud in terms of its users, artists and community.
Whether you want to discover new movies, music, or TV shows, iTunes is a great way to control the different podcasts you subscribe to. With their easy to use interface, users can discover new podcasts channels through its search functionality and be notified when a podcast has been added.
According to a report from 2015, YouTube accounts for 40% of all music streaming and 4% of all music revenues. While this isn't necessarily sustainable for YouTube to maintain, the online video community remains one of the most popular communities for DJs, artists and its users.
1001 Tracklists is one of our favorite resources for DJ sets and mixes. They also are a great resource for discovering tracklists from popular DJ mixes, live sets and podcasts. Most of the live sets are pulled from SoundCloud and YouTube, but they do offer a better organization than most streaming platforms.
Fanburst is one of our favorite streaming services. As they have made it free for its users to upload their songs, Fanburst has become a fan favorite for many of today's music lovers.
