Mixcloud Tips Series #1: Creating Your Profile

Creatingyourprofile

Photo

Aim for a bold yet simple image and don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be high resolution – we’ll do all the compression for you. The image should be an expression of your identity whether you’re an individual or a brand.

Description

Keep it short and snappy. Describe what you’re all about but don’t forget to include all your other blogs, websites or any channel you want people to browse.

Connections

Connections, it’s all about connections. We’re sure you already know that so we’ve got Social Media Integration right at hand to help maximise your reach. That’s not all, whenever someone that is connected on Twitter ‘favourites’ one of your Cloudcasts, your Twitter ID will automatically be mentioned. If you’ve also got Facebook connected to Mixcloud, your new upload will be automatically posted.

Mix artwork

When people visit your profile, they’ll see the images to your uploads. If you’re running a Mix Series, aim to reach a trend; you don’t have to but it makes things look a tad more professional and smooth. Check out our #ProfileOftheWeek hashtag on social media to find our good looking profile picks.

Interview with Anja Schneider

tobacco dockIn a reflection of London’s salient electronic music scene, London Warehouse Events – in association with ourselves – have quite a remarkable roster of fun-filled jamborees on offer; the most extrusive of which is the upcoming event at the Tobacco Dock. With Groove Armada, DJ Sneak, Lee Foss, Crosstown Rebels head-honcho Damian Lazarus and Metro Area all booked to perform – there really shouldn’t be anything else on your mind come the 9th August.

In the lead up to the event, London Warehouse Events caught up with Anja Schneider who has had releases on Get Physical, Tsuba, Crosstown Rebels and Diyanamic whilst stamping her demeanour as a constant “perpetual motion machine” and quite possibly one of the hardest working individuals in the business:

You can catch Anja Schneider alongside Krankbrother, Sub-an, Dinky and a host of other accomplished DJ’s and producers at the Tobacco Dock in August. For more details click here, or here to buy tickets (they’re already on their 3rd release so hurry!) In the mean time, check out Anja’s mix live from Tobacco Dock earlier this year for a taster of things to come.
