Play Track Make Me Feel Janelle Mon eVia SoundCloud They call us dirty cause we break all your rules now, Janelle Mon e asserted in 2013 on The Electric Lady s Q.U.E.E.N., a song that was originally titled Q.U.E.E.R. Five years later, during an interview with Hot 97 s Ebro Darden, the newly out Mon e, who identifies as pansexual, broke her latest album down into three acts. Songs one, two, three, four that s the reckoning. That s you feeling the sting of being called nigger for the first time by a white person. Feeling the sting of being called bitch by a man for the first time. Feeling the sting of being called queer or a faggot by homophobic people. It s reckoning and dealing with what it means to be called a Dirty Computer. Nevertheless, Dirty Computer s opening act is harmonically lush, filled with bright synthesizers and rhythm guitars that refuse to linger in the melancholy found in the lower frets their realm is one of tentative exhilaration, of becoming. The album s following two acts celebrate the unabashed ownership of one s otherness ( Django Jane ) and speak to the fear that comes from such visible vulnerability ( So Afraid ). The story has no end in sight, in part because Mon e is one of its first authors.
PureVolume was founded in 2003, the same year as Myspace, and enjoyed a few years as one of the dominant music sharing platforms until Bandcamp and Soundcloud came along four years later. (From 2010 to 2016, it was owned by SpinMedia, which was also Spin;s parent company at the time.) In recent years, it included an editorial section in addition to its music sharing service, but as Billboard notes, there hasn;t been a new post published there since October. Navigating to the site today, you;ll find a message that reads ;;We reget sic to inform you that PureVolume.com is shutting down. If you were storing music here, you will have until April 30th, 2018 to download it. Thanks for all your support.;You heard them. If your long dormant PureVolume page still contains any lingering crabcore breakdowns, Blink 182 ripoffs, rap metal embarrassments, super chill acoustic ditties, offensively unfunny hip hop parodies, barely listenable breakup songs about boys or girls you ate lunch with for a week in 2004, or fitful first stabs at sounding like the Strokes, you have two weeks to go save them before they disappear forever.
Moving on because the funds are, ;not expected to be recoverable within a reasonable period of time,; the sizable write off shouldn;t really be more than a speedbump for Twitter this year. By the end of 2017, reports revealed that the platform had raked in nearly $2.4 billion in revenue, and another $4.4 billion short term investments.Meanwhile, SoundCloud continues a seemingly never ending cycle of survival measures, pivoting away from their $10 monthly subscription model to a more affordable $5 subscription as well as a renewed emphasis on a plan provided to music producers and other prosumers. Spotify and Apple Music may be putting up healthy numbers in 2018, but Twitter 's write off proves that the digital music marketplace is still very much an uncertain and shifting landscape.
Born Gustav hr and raised in Long Beach, New York, Peep is emblematic of the rise of the SoundCloud generation of rappers. He would also soon conquer YouTube, garnering millions of views on each of his videos. He embodied today;s emo rap movement, marrying trap beats with painfully confessional lyrics on the nature of his problems with addiction and depression. And as his prominent social media presence confirmed, this was no mere act; the line between his artistry and his personal life was not blurred it was nonexistent.Suffice to say, this radical vulnerability struck a deep chord with his listeners. While Peep 's death will never achieve the same sort of monocultural mourning that someone like David Bowie 's did, the closeness he was able to achieve with his audience warrants comparison to the early days of the Starman. For many of his fans struggling in similar situations, he was one of the only sources of hope and light available to them. Sample tweet to his followers: " I used to not have friends. Be patient don t kill urself there s people who u love that u don t even know yet.

SoundCloud is stuffed. On Thursday, the streaming music service mostly known as a place to hear podcasts and remixes from unknown DJs confirmed that it had taken $US70 ($92) million in debt funding mdash; basically a loan from various investors mdash; in order to stay in business. It's never a good sign when venture backed companies have to raise money from debt financing groups, because it indicates that traditional investors don't have much hope for the company. This appears to be the case for SoundCloud, as TechCrunch reports that the debt funding was raised because the company couldn't close a $US100 ($131) million round of funding.
The funding is to meet the company's expected 2.5 times year on year revenue growth in 2017, a company spokeswoman said.SoundCloud, which is facing increasing competition from companies including Apple Inc's Apple Music, Pandora Media Inc and Spotify, launched a budget subscription package last month aimed at converting more listeners to paying subscribers.

Both Twitter and SoundCloud are facing tough times: earlier in the year, SoundCloud said it needed new funding to stay afloat. In 2014, a $60 million round of funding valued SoundCloud at $700 million; since then, it s raised a debt round. The new investment from Twitter, Recode reports, is part of a new round that should end up being about $100 million, and will give SoundCloud a valuation similar to what it achieved two years ago. Twitter, meanwhile, is struggling to generate profit and add new monthly active users. Back in the days of Dick Costolo s reign as Twitter chief executive, before Dorsey returned to supplant him, Twitter had weighed the idea of buying SoundCloud ( Would it solve Twitter 's growth problem? Recode mused at the time). Ultimately, Twitter walked away from that deal. Some sort of partnership or integration between Twitter and SoundCloud, which has licensing deals with Universal Music and Warner Bros., would make sense. Twitter has been expanding into streaming with a partnership with the N.F.L., which will allow Twitter to stream 10 Thursday Night Football games during the 2016 season its first foray into broadcasting and live video outside of its acquisition of Periscope. The hope is to draw in football fans to Twitter s platform and get them engaging on Twitter. Perhaps Twitter can do something similar with SoundCloud s 175 million monthly users.
