Mixcloud is to audio as YouTube
is to video. So, the idea is that DJs,
broadcasters, and podcasters will have a platform to
reach hungry music and audio content consumers. The
private beta site offers a fresh take on music mixes
that’s easy on the eyes and great for the ears, but
you’ll have to wait until it enters public testing
to take a proper look.
Mixcloud’s platform is beautiful and
sleek for both listeners and content creators alike.
The home page displays popular site mixes that can
be filtered by genre, recent activity from the users
you follow, featured content, and new additions.
For those aspiring audio stars,
Mixcloud allows for up to 10 free radio shows, but
doesn’t allow for individual tracks. Mixcloud’s
intent on providing the best experience for both
audiences, with the idea being that every content
creator have a full show or mix, with track list,
that listeners can appreciate in totality.
Listeners can browse the site for
content, follow the artistically gifted content
creators of their choosing, leave comments on track
lists, and listen to complete mixes via media player
in a new window.
