As some of you may know, due to tighter copyright and distribution standards, SoundCloud has been making it harder for DJs and other beatmakers who produce remixes and bootlegs to get their work out there. 90% of the producers releasing these tracks aren’t seeking monetary gains and are simply continuing a culture that’s been in place long before SoundCloud. One can even argue that these productions help boost the popularity of the original material involved thus benefiting those who have the rights to said material (artists, producers, label, etc.).
After going strong for just over a month my moombahton bootleg of “Drinking Rum & Red Bull” by Beenie Man & Future Fambo was dropped. It was approaching 1,000 plays which is major for someone like me. Instead of steering clear of the platform I decided to drop something they can’t flag; a track that’ll go even harder than the one they dropped. What you think?
