Paris, June 1st, 2020
Following an acquisition, Soundsgood free playlisting platform has been suspended on June 1st, 2020.
This communication is following our several shutdown announcements since April 14th, 2020 via email and live notifications on the platform.
It’s been 7 years together…
— 90,000 active playlists followed by 210 million fans in streaming services.
— 35,000 curators playlisting from Soundsgood across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, SoundCloud, Napster, Qobuz, late Rdio, etc.
So… why the change?
Soundsgood has always been free to support the diversity in our community from music editors to journalists, radio hosts, artists, festivals, celebrities, footballers, youtubers, sports coaches, independents and aficionados.
We’ve financially powered the platform thanks to B2B activities with record labels: adapting our technology to better serve artists in the streaming era.
These B2B activities have eventually led to our recent acquisition. And have grown to a point where we could not maintain the platform anymore. With a heavy heart, we have decided to shut down the platform on May 1st, 2020.
You can yell at us or send some love… We’ve shared so many individual stories with you over the last 7 years… 🥰🥺😪
Remember Soundsgood looks in 2014?
Special kudos to…
