MixCloud gets smart and disables skipping through mixes

Finally, somebody got smart and listened to reason, instead of trying to hide behind an obscure clause in the DMCA that covers mashups (but not mixshows) as derivative works. I just went to check out my latest DJ mix on MixCloud and here’s what I got. A pop-up that said scrubbing back through tracks is disabled.

MixCloud Netmix page
MixCloud disables scrub function and displays warning that featured disabled in USA.

You can see my admin here to edit this mixshow, but notice the track listing is not displayed. You have to click “Show Tracklist” to see it. This should, at the very least, allay the concerns of labels for now, unless they want to make even more of a stink over MixCloud. I have to give it to MixCloud on this one. They finally owned up to it and made the change, which makes the service more legal than SoundCloud, which could not implement this for fear of locking out users from being able to scrub through tracks actually owned by their copyright holders featured on that site. You can’t do this for some tracks and not all. It’s very hard to manage. So we’re finally moving in the right direction, MixCloud. Good stuff and congrats on making these new changes. I think they will go a long way to keeping you guys from getting hit by the labels down the road.

Frankie Knuckles Tribute Mixes

frankie-knuckles-03Since Frankie Knuckles’ untimely passing this week, there have been many Internet messages and tributes to Frankie Knuckles in words and images, but it’s important to hear the music of the man who created the genre we know as house music. Here are three Frankie Knuckles Tribute Mixes. The first is from America’s number 1 mix-show DJ, Riddler (@djriddler) for 103.5 WKTU.

Chris Coco Melodica Radio on MixCloud

Melodica is Chris Coco's weekly radio broadcast, which his web site says is "An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosly connected to dance and electronic music." We thought it was pretty cool. The three tracks we loved in the play list were Acos Coolkas Free Flight, Du Firri Au Katanga "Desination Danger" and a re-edit of Frankie Knuckles classic Your Love. Take a listen.

On Wednesday night, I got home from work at the AP and decided to just focus and put together my first Traktor DJ mix. This time, I had a slight problem when one of the tracks I began to load in the left channel caused the track playing in the right channel to cut out a few times.
