SO! *cracks knuckles*
Although they haven't made too much of a huge noise about it, Soundcloud has quietly poked at the fact that they're there to host original productions, not DJ mixes. However, it's obviously the most popular site for DJs to throw up their mixes at this particular point in time.
In the meantime, Mixcloud sits in the corner of the room, bearing not only a mix-friendly design, but also no limits on uploads. Yet, it would appear that DJs / listeners aren't particularly fond of getting off their butts and moving to Mixcloud. An example of this is the fact that while my Soundcloud page gets frequent [by my low standards ] hits, my Mixcloud, featuring pretty much all the mixes i've made, has scarcely any hits at all.
So, what do you predict the future of this situation is gonna be? Is Soundcloud gonna start really cracking down on DJ mixes with a similar fury that the US Gov has used to crack down on torrents and filesharing? Or, is it gonna continue to sit around, only zapping a few mixes a month like it appears to be doing right now?
I personally hope that the earlier occurs, because Mixcloud is a great site, and I think that if Soundcloud were to crack down, that would perhaps lead Soundcloud's DJs and mix-listeners to hop over to Mixcloud.
