I have to admit it. I love Soundcloud.
If you were to stop me on the train and I removed my headphones, it would usually reveal that I’m listening to a Soundcloud playlist (usually our own), a mix on Mixcloud, or a UK radio station such as solarradio.co.uk, Floradio.co.uk or Mixlr.co.uk.
For a while, though, the spectre of survival has been hanging over Soundcloud, as it has sought the best avenues to monetise the platform. In an effort to challenge Spotify, it has finally launched a paid subscription service, SoundCloud Go. For $10, users get month’s worth of access a huge new library of music. Sounds reasonable, but sites such as Toneden.io are also growing in popularity.
Will a viable rival ever knock Soundcloud or even Spotify from their lofty perches?
