MixCloud is a combination of music discovery and promotion. It strives to serve the intersection of interests between listeners that want to find new and interesting music and artists that want to get their music in front of a wider audience. The idea is that you can get recommendations by following the music mavens of whichever genre you choose. Most people find new music through friends. Having a friend that’s plugged into the latest music trends keeps you jamming along to new stimulating tracks. Imagine if your friend’s knowledge of and refined taste in music were accessible by API. That’s what we’ve got with the MixCloud API.
