Over 40 creators have already signed up in the first wave
Mixcloud has launched a new “fan-to-creator” subscription service called Mixcloud Select.
The new version of the long-form streaming platform – which was first launched in 2008 – has been created in a bid to ensure that artists and curators get paid fairly for their content.
Starting at 2.99 per month, users will be able to access new features including offline listening, exclusive material, and the option to view tracklists upfront.
Co-founder of Mixcloud, Nick Perez, says: “We want to enable fans to get closer to the culture and communities they care about, while ensuring that everyone involved in the creative process is recognised and rewarded accordingly.”
Check out the announcement video below.
The Mixcloud website says: “With Mixcloud Select, subscribers directly support you plus the music and artists you play. Make more, together.”
The service is currently teamed up with over 40 creators, with a goal of rolling the service out to their wider community. Among those already signed up are Afrojack, Nicole Moudaber, and Lefto – along with some of the site’s smaller artists.
Independent radio stations such as Soho Radio, Brooklyn Radio, and Red Light Radio are also using the new version.
Ahead of Mixcloud Select, the platform recently announced new direct licensing deals with large record companies including Universal, Sony, and Warner.
