Kaskade Confirms Development Of New Music Platform, Hints At New Album
A few days ago, Kaskade had nearly 70% of the content on his SoundCloud deleted, due to copyright infringement and claims that he had violated the site’s Creative Commons Licensing agreements. While he is not the first artist to have large chunks of content removed by the music hosting platform, he is one of the largest names in electronic music to experience it in this manner, and as long as SoundCloud continues with the precedent that it has recently set, he will not be the last.
However, rather than getting discouraged, Kaskade has announced that he plans to create a new online music hosting platform. The international star has said that he would like to introduce a unique platform, that will serve as host to years of his music, without record labels or other industry influencers dictating the content being shared. According to Kaskade, this has been an idea of his for years, and the recent incident with SoundCloud may have been the final push needed to really implement the plan. While planning to share all of his music, including originals, remixes, mashups, etc. on the new platform, Kaskade has also hinted that he’s been “tinkering around with a new album for a few weeks now,” which will be sure to grace the new music sharing site. Until then, while we wait for an official announcement, we’ll just have to sit and watch in anticipation as Kaskade single-handedly looks to take on SoundCloud, and tease his fans in the process.
