Protect Yourself Against SoundCloud Takedowns


A few weeks ago I read about SoundCloud starting its take down campaign on a massive scale, targeting both casual users and big name acts alike (Knife Party being one of them). I've had a few take downs in the past due to some remixes and mix tapes that I've made in the five years that I've been on the music sharing platform, so I didn't think much of it because I just assumed it was business as usual. Big mistake...
I got a text message from a promoter just a single day after I read about the take down campaign.
"I have a client wants to hear your remix but they can't access your SoundCloud. Where else can we check it out?"
I expected the worst, and I was right: My account had been deleted along with all the music I uploaded for the last half decade! It really couldn't have come at a worse time (is there ever a good time?), because I was about to start promoting my EP of all-original music which was going to rely heavily on using SoundCloud as my playback and social hub, and instead I was left with nothing.
So I contacted support and they told me that they have a "three strikes and you're out" rule regarding takedowns. Sadly, I wasn't aware of that until my account was removed, since take downs in the past didn't lead to obvious penalties other than your music disappearing from your profile.
So in order that you might save yourself from all the trouble I went through and learn from my mistakes, here is my advice to anyone who wasn't to carry on using SoundCloud:


Defected Presents House Masters: Frankie Knuckles - Mixtape

Defected Presents House Masters: Frankie Knuckles, released 26.04.15. Pre-order on iTunes / CD: /

House Masters - Frankie Knuckles is a project that began in February 2014, with Frankie hand-selecting the productions and remixes he wanted to include on a retrospective release of his illustrious career. On the sad news of his passing on 31 March 2014, the project was duly paused. Now, with the creation of The Frankie Knuckles Fund established in partnership with the Elton John Aids Foundation, the release will finally see the light of day, with all profits being donated to the charity.

The tracklist includes many of the most influential and highly-regarded records from the Grammy-winning producer, including ‘Tears’, ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and ‘Baby Wants To Ride’ alongside seminal remixes for Alison Limerick, Inner City, Hercules & Love Affair, First Choice and Pet Shop Boys.

My Song Was Played 168 Million Times on Pandora. I Received $4,000

Story by Paul Resnikoff
By law, we have to let any business use our songs that asks, so long as they agree to pay a rate that, more often than not, was not set in a free market. We don’t have a choice. As such, we have no power to protect the value of the music we create. The abhorrently low rates songwriters are paid by streaming services—enabled by outdated federal regulations—are yet another indication our work is being devalued in today’s marketplace. Consider the fact that it takes roughly one million spins on Pandora for a songwriter to earn just $90. Avicii’s release “Wake Me Up!” that I co-wrote and sing, for example, was the most streamed song in Spotify history and the 13th most played song on Pandora since its release in 2013, with more than 168 million streams in the US. And yet, that yielded only $12,359 in Pandora domestic royalties— which were then split among three songwriters and our publishers. In return for co-writing a major hit song, I’ve earned less than $4,000 domestically from the largest digital music service. If that’s what’s now considered a streaming “success story,” is it any wonder that so many songwriters are now struggling to make ends meet?

DJ YOUNG 1 at Charivari Detroit music festival !!!!

Plenty of DJs can mix beats from a variety of genres—everything from hip hop, top 40, reggae and electro/club, to neo house and deep house—but how often do you see a DJ who can do all this at the tender age of 11? That’s DJ Young 1’s story. The mixing and scratching sensation first got into music at age five, and began making beats in small private recording studios around Los Angeles. But it wasn't until she played DJ Hero in her spare time that her interest in mixing music really took off.

As a sponsored Stanton DJ and the youngest graduate of Jam Master Jay's Scratch Academy in Los Angeles, DJ Young 1 has spun her magic at a diverse range of venues, including the San Francisco Supper Club, The Palms (LA), Leige (Oakland) and The New Parish (Oakland). She has also lent her talents to special performances for San Francisco Pride, DJ Spark’s Birthday Bash, the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks MVP Picnic, Wilder’s Preparatory Academy Charter School Harvest Festival, La Ballona Elementary School Fall Festival and Gibson Beverly Hills, showcasing the SCS4.DJ and the Cerwin Vega P Series! She also showcased the SCS4.DJ and the STR8.150 turntables at the 2013 NAMM convention in Anaheim. Her most recent work includes spinning as a guest dj for Celebrity, Anthony Anderson's son's birthday party and devoting her time spinning at the 2013 HER HRC Celebration at The Robertson in West Hollywood as well as the HRC National Gala Event in Washington DC. She has also performed as a finalist on America's Got Talent Season 8 and was the guest dj for The Queen Latifah Show. Her most highest honor was spinning as a guest dj for the 2014 White House Easter Egg Roll where she had an opportunity to meet President Obama and the First Lady.
