An open letter to the Mixcloud community about why we’re changing our playback experience

These proposed changes annoyed me at first but then I reflected on all of the free listening I’ve enjoyed over the years. I feel inclined to pay for that premium (hate that word) subscription now. I use Mixcloud a lot and it seems only fair to contribute something.

Listened Prog Rock Mix from Mixcloud
Growing up in the 70's I listened to a lot of prog rock...Genesis, Yes, King Crimson. I still listen to this music & have been on a big prog rock binge lately. I pulled this 3 year old mix out of the Low Light Mixes archive because I figured that Mixcloud & Facebook folks may not have heard it. For this mix I stayed away from obvious choices like ELP, Genesis, Yes etc. Instead I used artists such as PFM, Egg, Gilgamesh, Le Orme, etc. With a well known artist like Pink Floyd, I picked cuts from less well known albums. This mix is definitely not a best of prog rock. It's just a collections of tunes that work well together.

This is a great mix. Very few of the “usual suspects” and it all flows together really well.

Great music as always here but also some interesting talk about being a band that plays non-mainstream music in the current state of the music business.
