    I mean really. I only do hard drugs when I'm alone and bored. A good rave keeps you up and happy. If you drive them underground then there's no regulating drug and alcohol use!
    Just kidding. I don't do hard drugs. :laugh:

    We know you do hard drugs ;) ...& unlike any form of EDM they are still underground :blink:
    Fucking hate what the mainstream has done to EDM, it was sooo much better when IT was underground. Let them keep there empire buildings...real EDM has no place there anyway. Time to hang the tiesticles & all the others by there balls & go back to the underground I say. Its gone from a cool underground scene to a billion dollar INDUSTRY in the last 25-30 years & the state of it makes me sick. I listened to the top 10 on Beatport today & almost pissed my pants laughing & made me feel queezy all at the same time, what a bunch of shite....
    Good, ban EDM far & wide so only the people that are not in it to make money but for the music will still keep doing it & the leaches will find something else to do.

    Interesting thread there Luc.

    Though the user 'Inofaith' sums up the best way to use soundcloud in my opinion and what he says is definitely the approach i take when it comes to using soundcloud thats for sure.
    Here is what he says for anyone thats interested:

    'Never ever try to sell or push something to people.
    Just make sure you're available/easily accessible/out there.

    I've build my soundcloud slowly, just being honest, sincere and nice to people in comments. I've never sent a message to anybody asking to listen to my music. I hate it when people just blatantly send that spam to me so I don't do it to others.
    I upload my most worthwhile work to soundcloud and share it in groups, people can discover it on their own there... that's what I like about soundcloud (or at least in the early days)... that you click on some random songs in a group, and you're amazed by somebody talented and try to find out who that person is and what the rest of their music is about. THAT's exciting... not receiving a message with "hi, listen to my shit".

    Recently I've passed the 2000 followers mark (in over 2 years time)

    Having soundcloud as a central place, people are divided all over the web. So post your tracks all over the various sites and networks. Rember, just post it, don't send messages to people and push it under their noses.

    Be friendly to people when you interact, scoundcloud, facebook and twitter allow you to come in direct contact with your heroes... and if they do answer your message, it better be something nice eh?
    Don't spend time online with your fans when you're in a bad mood.

    I also sometimes notice that certain artists who are bigger have a more distance on their facebook pages and soundcloud comments. The never or rarely comment back on all the comments. Which I think is sad but understandable. It kind of creates this ivory tower / company-like feeling. I find it's much more pleasand if an artist has a real human connection ability to him/her.
    That they will take some time out of their busy schedule to get back to all the fans that bothered to like/fav and write sincere comments on their various websites. It's the least you can do.

    However I find it harder and harder to keep track of comments and tracks sent to me recently as traffic on soundcloud has increased significantly. It's as much of a burden as it is a blessing, so be careful what you wish for.

    This is the thread I have seen about CloudKillers:

    www.idmforums.com/showthread.php?t=56112...ghlight=cloudkillers

    But I realize now that 'Zeecho' is certainly an employee from 'soundcloudpromotions' trying to put cloudkillers down...

    It worked on me, lol :D

    Its not allowed now..here is the comment rules..i got on hold for a while making useless comments..lol.so you need to post constructive feedback or go to next track...
    How should I comment?

    Do NOT make comments:-

    Short or useless
    'Nice track mate' 'Nice remix there' 'this sounds great'
    'Great bass sound' 'I like this part' 'nice leads there'
    'asfldsjkaf jsadkfllds' 'rolfcopter' 'oooo some trance'

    Negative
    'this is shit' 'try harder' 'not my thing' 'sounds the same'

    Please be Constructive:-

    This track isn't quite ready yet -- it needs a helpful tip
    New to making music, here -- have a helpful tip
    This sounds ready for release -- I noticed you did this
    This mixdown needs some work -- you might need a tip
    Your career is doomed -- let me save you with knowledge
    This instrument that annoys me -- try something I know fits
    This is unfinished -- I have a tip to aid completition
    This is like [another person] -- Here's a tip to help you grow
    This is a long set -- Let me find out if your transitions are emotive
    and mixed well and flow is ok

    This site goes way back, i remember it when i first started making music, only they ran things a little differently. if you signed up you would get a list of 10 random sound cloud tracks from other users to listen and comment on and people just used to say 'nice' or 'cool' etc....and in return you would get the same, its like you where getting 10 comments and 10 plus a day......obviously now they run things differently, maybe soundcloud had them for encouraging comment spamming who knows. I always remember the site looking very seedy and just dodgy really, and it put me off.

    Im sure its different now, maybe i will check it out, I'm very stubborn with things like this lol :laugh:
