Mixcloud is testing the waters of its own subscription service known Select, which just launched today.
The popular go-to site for radio shows, podcasts, and DJ mixes offers a shiny, new feature with its fan-to-creator subscription. This allows users to download music and mixes to listen to offline, view tracklists, and more. All whilst contributing to royalties and licensing fees.
The interesting part about Mixcloud Select is that it allows artists to set their own price, starting at $2.99 a month. The profits made from the subscription service will allow artists, labels, publishers, etc. to get paid for their content.
The first wave of artists featured on MixCloud Select include Afrojack, Oliver Heldens, Axtone, Eats Everything, Nicole Moudaber and among others. Plus, other key curators including Brooklyn Radio, Defected Records, Stamp the Wax and more.
Co-founder of the platform, Nico Perez is proud to say, “These fans can now take the next step by directly supporting creators’ livelihoods”
