When uploading to Mixcloud, please be aware that there are a few rules that govern the playback experience for your listeners. Keeping in line with these will make sure that your shows can be listened to by all of our users.
Please make sure that your shows only contain:
Maximum 3 songs from one album (and no more than 2 consecutively)
Maximum 4 songs from one recording artist (and no more than 3 consecutively)
Maximum 4 songs from one compilation (and no more than 3 consecutively)
Your show will not be available to listen to without an SRPC waiver if your show includes:
- more than 3 songs from one album
- more than 2 songs from one album played consecutively
- more than 4 songs from one compilation
- or more than 3 songs from a compilation played consecutively.
Shows that have more than 4 songs from one recording artist but fewer than 8 songs from one recording artist will only be available to Premium subscribers, channel subscribers or you as the creator.
If a show contains 8 or more songs from one recording artist or has more than the maximum amount of songs from an album or compilation as shown above, then it will not be available for listening to on Mixcloud without an SRPC waiver attached.
Why is this?
Mixcloud is a user-generated Internet audio platform. We have many rights holder partners including record labels, publishers, collecting societies and more. Our licensing framework with these partners means we have certain rules about what uploads are made available to free-to-listen users.
I want my show to be available to everyone
If you are a label or artist that owns the master sound recording rights in question, please reach out to us about completing an SRPC Waiver for this show.
