Alex SoundCloud is 5!

Five years ago, Eric and I and the rest of our founding team introduced SoundCloud to the world (here’s the first track ever posted, by Eric himself).

Today, we want to thank you, the incredible SoundCloud community, for half a decade of sharing music & audio. These days you’re posting 12 hours of it every minute. It’s amazing. 90% of tracks get played, most on the day that they’re posted. More than half within the hour that they’re posted.

We love to hear your SoundCloud stories. Hear an introduction by Eric to five creators from around the world. Click again at the end of the introduction to hear their stories.

Share your story too: leave a comment below or on the waveform, or get in touch on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Google Plus.

Thank you all so much for joining us on this journey. Here’s to the next five years!
