Welcome to the 310th installment of my weekly podcast series. This week i have some exciting news to share with you, as i have officially become a proud Mixcloud Select curator. Read on to let me explain to you what Mixcloud Select is, and how you can be a part of it as well.
Many of you know that Mixcloud is a platform for music content creators such as DJ’s radio-hosts, pod-casters and any other type of audio content creator. Even though Mixcloud looks similar to Soundcloud it’s quite different where Soundcloud is a platform with the focus on labels and music producers. Where Mixcloud is specific for podcast, radio shows and DJ mixes. And not for single audio tracks as music productions.
So with that being said, you now know what Mixcloud is. Next to my website I have been uploading my shows for many years now on Mixcloud, and it always have been a place where you could easily listen my latest show, see the track-list and follow me to stay updated on new episodes. Since a couple of months there is Mixcloud Select, which is a member based part of the platform where curators can interact with there most loyal fans and give them exclusive access to audio material as they subscribe as a member. This way Mixcloud Select aims to create a better and fair distribution model for the music industry.
Fair distribution for everybody in the music chain.
With this fair distribution model Mixcloud Select makes sure that everybody in the music chain gets equally paid for their work and efforts. As most of the years in the music industry and until now this never was a fair deal. Everybody knows that DJ’s are a very important part of the music chain. Now more than ever DJ’s are needed to push music and without DJ’s many producers wouldn’t even exist. DJ’s were always needed for producers and labels to push their music out to the masses but where never really appreciated for their effort in terms of revenue.
Through the years the music industry and they way we listen to music changed. From listening offline to a very active and mostly on the internet being music industry ways of listening to music changed. Now more than ever music curators are needed and there is a whole scene with music curator out there as there is a place for them where they can be recognized. Mixcloud Select is taking that to a higher level where curators and DJ’s can finally be a part of the revenue that comes in.
It’s also taking care that the right money comes to the right people. As a ‘Select’ subscriber you pay a monthly fee which comes to the DJ / curator you sign-up to and the music / artists he or she plays. This is a win win situation for the music industry as now everybody in the chain gets an equal part of incoming revenue. With being a subscriber to my Mixcloud select channel you will support the music industry in the best way you can.
So what are the benefits for you?
When you become a ‘Select’ subscriber / member to my Mixcloud account you will have access to:
- Upfront track-lists. You can check out track-lists without even hitting the play button on my podcast episodes.
- Listen offline. You can download each episode to the Mixcloud app and listen them offline when you don’t have an internet connection.
- Get access to exclusive content. From now on when i create an Dirty Disco special like i did in the past with the House Classics special right here. Or the Kerri Chandler Special here. Or the not to long ago 6 hour mix-session with the XL mega DJ mix. When i make these kind of specials from now on they will be available to ‘select members’ only.
- DJ Only Mixes. As you know there are the DJ only mixes of every episode that i create. From now you will have full access to them when you sign-up on my Select page.
