After the reports that Soundcloud laid off 173 staff and consolidated it’s operations in two offices, New York and Berlin, news started to spread that the platform only had enough money to continue to operate for another 50 days. Now in terms of the dance music scene, this was a major claim to make.

However in a new blog post by Alex Ljung, “Soundcloud Is Here To Stay” according to the founder. News was beginning to circulate due to the staff being laid off, and insiders claimed and leaked that the finances of the company were not looking good. How reliable these sources were, we won’t know, but the founders of Soundcloud have definitely challenged this and totally disclaimed it. So do we really know what to believe? Check out the “Soundcloud Is Here To Stay” blog post below.

Hey everyone,

There’s an insane amount of noise about SoundCloud in the world right now. And it’s just that, noise. The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away. Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.

Along with each of you, we’ve built this incredible creative community of artists, podcasters, DJs, producers and more who are the driving force in pushing culture forward in the world. That’s not going to change. Last week we had to make some tough decisions to let go of some of our staff, but we did this to ensure SoundCloud remains a strong, independent company.

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Some of you have asked how you can help–spread the word that we’re not going anywhere and keep doing what you’re doing–creating, listening, uploading, sharing, liking, and discovering what’s new, now and next in music. SoundCloud is here to stay.

Peace,
Alex

So from those inside Soundcloud, the company is not disappearing anytime soon. However it is worth noting, the company’s subscription service has not went as well as possible, and there have been major problems around the platform over the last few years. It’s definitely something to watch out for, but it would be a real blow for dance music and many artists if Soundcloud closes.
