DJs and Producers Can Now Make Money Through SoundCloud

SoundCloud has made it easier for producers and DJs to make money directly from the platform, expanding its SoundCloud Premier program out of private beta.

If an artist has reached more than 5000 plays in the previous month, they will potentially be able to use the service.

SoundCloud says: "it will meet or beat the revenue share that any creator can earn from their music on any other platform, and is also promising direct, monthly payments, with the money coming from a mix of advertising and the cost of a subscription account."

SoundCloud made such decision just a month after Spotify announced that it is rolling out a programme where independent artists can upload music directly to that platform.
