This week we will join forces with Eric D. Clark and his labels to attend Worldtronics – Festival of Electronic Music that takes place in Berlin. During five days (wed-sun) Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt will be full of musicians, labels, music companies and hopefully a lot of electronic music heads. During the first two days we will have a stand together in the main hall showing how Eric uses SoundCloud to share and distribute his tracks on the web. So if you plan to come by please visit us as well, listen to some great music and pick up a few stickers.
Thank you for a fantastic release party everyone. We had a great time, hope you did too. We want to grab this opportunity to also thank some people that made this celebration possible.
In the early evening, Swedish new jazz wave musicians Nils Berg (Sax, Flute), Josef Kallerdahl (Bass) and Sebastian Voegler (Drums) played two dirty jazz noir sets that some say was the highlight of the whole evening. Thanks for starting the night with such beautiful music.
In the middle of all the stress we forgot to mention one of the DJ’s that were playing in the evening so let’s correct that error. Fredrik Nyberg aka NIBC played tunes that made all the people outside both warm and in dance mode. Thank you Fredrik! A lot of people were also asking about the food and I’m very to happy to be able to present our caterer and star chef, Shannon Campbell. We are glad you liked his food and so is he.
Tanja & Björn over at PICKNICK also deserve a huge thanks. I can definitely say that your club now lies even closer to our hearts.
And our secret guest and old friend Snax did absolutely not let us down. Two songs was all that was needed to understand this mans brilliance. Check the photos below and you’ll see what we mean. Also check this video from our pre-release rooftop party.

See you at our next party!
Well, the answer is… we’re opening up!
Yes, you heard right, SoundCloud will go public next Friday night when the clock strikes midnight. This means that your public tracks will be accessible from the outside world and that your friends will be able to sign up for an account without an invite!
And of course there will be a party. With some great music. We’ll announce the artists one by one on this blog starting tomorrow. Please do let us know if you want to come. We’re so much looking forward to dance with you guys.
Along with the countdown, we’ve expanded our tour page with a little video showing what the cloud is capable of these days. We got some serious help with the voiceover by Berlin-based house connoisseur and DJ, Michelle Owen. And the backing music is by no less than Trickski. Check the fab result right here:
To all our beta testers we just want to say: We. Love. You. The feedback you’ve shared with us has been invaluable. And you’re the ones making it so great to hang out in the cloud.
Again, big, Big, BIG thanks. Now let’s take SoundCloud to the next level.
