What’s Really Going On in SoundCloud: The SoundCloud Version

Over the past week, the music industry was hit with the news of SoundCloud’s purported financial troubles. Troubles so serious that many thought the end of the streaming giant was near.

It was TechCrunch who first broke the story regarding SoundCloud’s troubles, and it painted a very grim state of the struggling platform. About 40 percent of its personnel were laid off in the last few weeks as the company struggles to stay afloat. Despite such moves though, news was that SoundCloud was still short on the needed funds for its operations and the projection was that unless a new cash influx came in soon, the company only had until Q4 of this year to sustain its current operations. We reported on the TechCrunch article ourselves, but were clear to state that the company still had time to find investors or even a buyer, and that thus this was not necessarily “the end of SoundCloud” as many were already believing.

Hot on the heels of our Dunmore Park release and having just celebrated Supremus Records’ 2nd birthday, the imprint welcomes Giom back on the label with his brand new single “Love / Hate”.

Layered with slick drum programming, deep emotive chords and sultry female vocals, “Love / Hate” sounds like a hybrid of early Maceo Plex-meets-Metro Area while retaining that classic French bounce. The sound here is unmistakably Giom: sexy Nu Disco funk, gagging to be unleashed on the nearest dance floor. We are proud to present you the dub mix of the single as a premiere for you today.

Premiere: Listen to Lust Fund’s ‘Split’ EP out on The Umbrella

Williamsburg. A landscape in constant transition. What was once a derelict wasteland shared by starving artists and the Hasidim, is now a luxury playground for the inherently rich. In a land of limitless trust funds, where everyone’s a DJ and nobody pays their rent, two men stand alone, dripping not in gold, but in sex.

The Lust Fund is flush, and whether bull or bear, it grows steadily. The passion project of Tom Snares and Ariel Black, Lust Fund came about not of desire, but of necessity. After months of laborious nights and steamy rendezvouses, the first physical manifestation of their love has come to fruition…

This Split EP is the first release of Lust Fund on The Umbrella. Although a group effort, it contains two solo tracks from each member.

SoundCloud Allegedly Doesn’t Have Enough Money To Survive Past 80 Days

Reports have begun surfacing that SoundCloud may truly be on its last leg.

Truth be told, things haven’t looked well for the streaming company for the entirety of 2017. Despite still being hugely popular and ahead of its competitors as far as some of its offerings go, the company has had financial problems for years now and they have only been getting worse. This resulted in 40 percent of its staff getting laid off last week and statements from its founders that it may not have enough money to see it through the year.

Premiere: Listen to Monty The Fly’s “Loop 19.1” on iTech Sound System

Bristol native Monty the Fly is as unpredictable a producer as you’re likely to encounter. Regardless of whether he’s turning his hand to off-kilter electronica or deep, sombre tones, his is a sound that’s always rich in intricate workings and captivating motifs. For his latest number, he perks up on iTech Sound System, a Russian label and collective that has played host to a number of local and international talents. A straight up, dance floor inspired effort, Peter’s Werbs features 4 sumptuous house tracks, each of which is as intriguing as the next.
