App: Mix cloud

mixcloud

With our growing arts industry and many youth trying out different disciplines, one of the commonest being deejaying, one has to share their mixes to get an audience. One of the most important aspects of being a professional DJ is promotion and unless you are already a superstar DJ with a team working behind the scenes, this means self promotion.
While the Internet has made releasing and promoting music easier than ever the sheer volume of releases and information out there makes it harder than ever to stand out from the crowd and get some attention. One of the best ways to build a profile as a DJ is to gain a loyal following both on the dance floor as well as online. An app with these capabilities is Mixcloud.
Now four years four years old, it is a perfect way for DJs to gain an audience, a point that has not been lost on some very big artistes such as Sir Aludah who already is hosting his mixes on Mixcloud. Mixcloud has released a brand new app for Android along with updates for iOS both of which are perfect for DJs and clubbers to keep up to date with hot mixes on the go.
The user interface for the App is very clean and easy to use with separate screens for feeds, categories and a discovery screen, which suggests Cloudcasts (Mixcloud’s name for podcasts and mixes) based on your previous as well as your friends listening habits. DJs and content producers can also keep an eye on their profile to see how many followers they currently have. With Soundcloud taking down many DJ mixes at the moment it could well be Mixcloud’s time to shine.
