This Week in Tumblr: TakesQuestions, Gorillaz & more

Last week was busy, so hopefully you didn’t miss anything! Just in case you might have, here is a recap of what went on at our Tumblr blog. Check it out:


  • If you have an iPad, you probably noticed we switched on OnSwipe, to make this blog look like a magazine, sort of like Flipboard.


  • Our newly launched project TakesQuestions is all about social audio in the form of Q&A. The concept was first conceived and tested at Midem Hack Day with Imogen Heap, with a great response so far with a real range of personalities from Diana Vickers to The Maine to The Blackout! You can even check out what SoundCloud’s own Alex has been up to!
  • Demolished Thoughts, the Beck-produced new solo LP from Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, is out May 23rd on Matador. Moore is streaming a cut from the record using one of our lovely artwork players over at

  • Converse once again brought together a mix of talent as part of their year-long campaign to represent the thriving British music industry. With their track ‘Desire’ they’re doing some really cool stuff with animated fire engulfing the waveform when sharing it to social sites.


  • Our Marie Elliott’s doing a regularly occurring segment now, Deutsch Dienstag:
  • The Howard Jones ReWork project gives music producers, both rising stars and old hands alike, the chance to remix/recreate/ReWork some of Jones’ finest records. Head here for updates on the project.
  • Remix Mike Nichol’s ‘Durado’, ‘Like’ Infrasonic Recordings on Facebook to download the stems, mix your track and submit it to their SoundCloud Dropbox!
  • Edward Burns’ upcoming indie film Newlyweds is looking for a song for placement in the film. You can submit your track to Edward via the submissions page here.

  • Burn Studios/Plastikman ‘Ask Yourself’ remix contest came to a close and the winning remix came from Oblique Industries, congratulations!


  • Check out MobileRoadie’s slick video from the MusicTech Meetup at SXSW. Appearances by Songkick, Topspin, SoundCloud, and other usual crowd!
