Mixcloud is trying to help DJs to generate income from their live streams.
Explaining the platform, cofounder Nico Perez said: “We hope that Mixcloud Live brings a little more fun – and maybe some dancing – into your home.
Mixcloud has received a rush release after thousands of DJs were left with live-streaming as their only performance outlet in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Perez added: “Particularly at this time when the world is socially distant, and we all need to feel a bit closer. In addition, we are very focused on helping creators generate more income directly from their fans via their live streams.”
As NME reports, DJs will be able to stream with or without video on the platform, while it’s also believed to be largely compatible with other similar platforms including OBS, Ecamm Live and Wirecast.
