When SoundCloud first came out, it quickly became a hub for DJs, uploading their mixes and gaining a decent following because of it. However, as labels became more hip to the new site, they began issuing copyright infringements left to right, and DJs began leaving the streaming website in droves – especially because their accounts were getting deleted. But in the words of Meek Mill and Tory Lanez – it’s litty again!

SoundCloud’s founder Eric Wahlforss has announced that they’ve signed some new licensing deals, and now a lot more music will be allowed on the platform. How it works is that SoundCloud has automated content recognition, which checks all uploads against a database of tracks that publishers have asked to block. Now there will be a lot less songs being blocked, and we can jam out to the mixes once again…IF they come back.
