Alex SoundCloud is here to stay.

Hey everyone,

There’s an insane amount of noise about SoundCloud in the world right now. And it’s just that, noise. The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away. Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.

Along with each of you, we’ve built this incredible creative community of artists, podcasters, DJs, producers and more who are the driving force in pushing culture forward in the world. That’s not going to change. Last week we had to make some tough decisions to let go of some of our staff, but we did this to ensure SoundCloud remains a strong, independent company.

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Some of you have asked how you can help–spread the word that we’re not going anywhere and keep doing what you’re doing–creating, listening, uploading, sharing, liking, and discovering what’s new, now and next in music. SoundCloud is here to stay.

Peace,
Alex

David Tea(m) Time with Kat

It’s Friday again, that means it is time for our weekly employee interview series that we have dubbed “Tea(m) Time”! Today, help us welcome Kat to our team in Berlin!

Specifics: Kat, from Scotland, Community team – support specialist

Was relocating difficult?: Nope, the SoundCloud HR team made it easy!

Favorite thing about Berlin: Night clubs / Night life / Electronic music!

Favorite thing about working at SoundCloud: Meeting all the diverse individuals at the company

Favorite sound: Reverberating bass from outside a night club before you go inside

Here are some of Kat’s favorite sounds on the ‘Cloud:

“One everyone here is aware of, but Maedels With a Microphone was awesome to listen to when I was still dreaming of moving to Berlin as they capture sounds and do spoken word podcasts about this wonderful city.

My friend Krysia is a student at Glasgow School of Art and she makes amazing sounds for her sculpture pieces and installations. She’s a Berlin & electronic music enthusiast too.

And

Soundwalk Collective are a collective based in Berlin and New York, and do live, often venue specific recordings which can become temporary or permanent sound installations. My favourites, obviously, are the Berghain studies, sounds from the vibrations and resonances from areas in the club.”
