Last week on the Tumblr blog, we tumbled about the Sleepover remix contest, New York City’s Music Hack Day, our Global Meetup Day coming up on February 9th and we also mentioned that we’re hiring! Learn more about what happened below.
- In honor of one of the most epic debuts in recent years, Circuitree Records bring you the Sleepover Remix Contest. There has been such a response to this release already, now it’s time for Circuitree friends and fans to get in on the fun. Remix contest winners will be selected by Sleepover themselves, to be featured on an upcoming, free digital release! More details here.
- Last Tuesday, we asked the SoundCloud community to show us their minimalist players! We found a cool example from songwriter and musician Steve Chabb from Pittsburg! Check out Steve’s great use of the mini player here.
- New York City hackers, get ready! On February 12th to the 13th, Music Hack Day is coming to town. If you’re a music- and sound-loving hacker based in NYC and interested in actively participating in a weekend filled with music, love and API’s, register now, it’s free to attend.
- Wondering about what it would be like to work at SoundCloud? Well, now is your chance to find out. We posted our recent job openings for Berlin and San Francisco along with pictures from our space as well as quotes from the team. Check it out: http://soundcloud.wpengine.com/2011/01/12/work-at-soundcloud/
- We announced Global Meetup Day a couple of weeks ago and we’re already starting to see some great meetups start to take shape. From Studios 301 hosting a gathering at their global headquarters in Sydney to margaritas in LA to Dublin hosting a meetup in a refurbished double decker bus from 1978, there are loads of great SoundCloud meetups planned all around the world! If you’re in Atlanta, there’s a meetup happening tomorrow (Tuesday, January 18th). Head over to our Meetup page to see what’s going on near you!
- Check out SoundByter, who’s releasing free sound effects, samples, and loops on his SoundCloud page. There are household sounds as well as drum loops, synth sounds, and other crazy noises. Plus he’s releasing new ones all the time!
- It was Nifty Thursday last week! Now, if your SoundCloud account is connected to automatically push new favorites to Twitter *and* the owner of the file has added their Twitter handle to their profile links, the tweet will include a tweetback so the user can keep track of how many of their tracks are getting favorited and pushed to Twitter! Learn more here.
As usual, keep a look out for what’s going on this week on the Tumblr blog here.
