What is SoundCloud?


SoundCloud is an online audio distribution platform founded in 2007 by Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss. They met while studying at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, a university renowned as one of the best computer science schools in the world. Coming together for a shared love of music, they decided they wanted to create something like Flickr or WordPress but for audio.   What started out as a small community for artists to promote their audio services has become a solid choice for indie musicians to truly stand out. Post Malone, Chance the Rapper, and Kehlani are just a few of the mainstream music artists who started their careers on SoundCloud.   SoundCloud is currently a streaming service, a distribution platform for new and prospective artists, and an online community for fans. But at its core, SoundCloud is about letting you discover and listen to new music. At the time of writing, there are over 175 million registered SoundCloud users and over 200 million tracks uploaded. You can access SoundCloud for free on both the desktop website and mobile app at.
