I was reading Techcrunch Tuesday and saw a headline for a new site called Audius that wanted to take the Soundcloud experience and update it for this decade. Decentralized content hosting that (they say) will make copyright takedowns more difficult, open source code, and some sort of crypto currency? Check, check and check.
I know we’ve all seen Soundcloud competitors rise and fall, but after doing my personal account, it seemed like a low-risk, low-investment exercise to put an account together for the label and have one more platform to be heard from. If you yourself are interested in joining, give it a shot and we’d appreciate if you follow the netlabel on there. Yeah, we’ll follow you in return like a big digital circle jerk. But judging by the size of the audience so far on there, we could have a decent say in how our little niche gets represented on this platform, and that would be nice for all of us if it does materialize (which I cannot emphasize enough is a bajillion to one chance). Having also popped in on their discord channel (which they invite you to join upon making an account) the devs seem to be in there pretty actively listening to what people have to say about the service right now, so I hope it gets better with time and does manage to avoid some of the pitfalls of soundcloud.
