SoundCloud has been an unreliable service for hosting DJ mixes ever since record labels started cracking down on the company last year. Thankfully, those who are tired of takedowns can now import their existing mixes directly into Mixcloud with a new tool.
The company’s SoundCloud importer was previously only available to Mixcloud content partners, but the company has now made it available to the public as a beta. The tool is only available for long-form content such as mixes, radio shows and podcasts, as Mixcloud doesn’t allow single track or album uploads.
Mixcloud also differs from SoundCloud in that it’s a licensed Internet radio service and has agreements with various collecting societies. This means that while Mixcloud doesn’t allow downloading and rewinding within a mix, their service is completely legal, and DJs don’t have to worry about takedowns.
The company also offers premium accounts with more features, and DJcity readers can get three months of free service with the promo code: DJCITYFREETRIAL (monthly plan only).
