Quick Blast of Subway Savageness – Episode 010 – Tube Train Tear-up

Dat bitch be crazy
So die-hard Brainz fans may have already heard this one, but I thought I’d chuck it out there for the Tube Train ravers.

Traktor ran a competition to do a mix with their app on an iDevice and I had a shot. Ultimately I’m disqualified due to it being 3 minutes too long, but whatevs. It’s been on Mixcloud for a week or 2, but I thought I’d throw it up in the podcast feed for the takeaway gang.

It’s a quick 30 minute blast of randomness. Hopefully it’s up your street.

Big up

nom-funny-pole-subway So it’s been over 18 months since I smashed it up on the tube train for you. Well, I fancied it this week so we’ve got a fresh Tube Train Tear Up for you.

Taking Down UK Garage Can Cause PR Nightmares – Episode 141 – Bumpy UK Garage with DJ BrainZ

Brainz Soundboot

So you may have caught on the madness that I caused for Soundcloud over the past 2 weeks. I got a LOT of coverage, and all I wanted was my account back. Read up on my story here. Basically – my advice is don’t upload mixes to Soundcloud. Stick to Mixcloud instead.

Speaking of Mixcloud – if you’d like to help support the Brainz, please vote for me in the Mixcloud radio show awards here. That would be jolly good if I won!

Big tunes this week. Stupidly huge show.

All I wanted was to keep my account… Soundcloud & Universal drove me to it

For the TL;DR version – read the original Do Androids Dance article by Nappy, or the ultra turbo version on BoingBoing

As featured on:

Do Androids Dance Mixmag BoingBoing TorrentFreak
And all these other places… (+) Techdirt Billboard Dancing Astronaut

So pretty much all day I’ve been grinning from ear to ear. It’s an evil grin. A grin of vengeance. I feel like I’ve stuck it to the man, and the same time stabbed one of my friends in the back.

I shared the story of my Soundcloud account getting cancelled over copyright infringement, and it’s gone viral. Searching Twitter for the words “soundcloud universal” at this moment in time is returning a constant stream of tweets talking about this. Facebook shares of all the articles covering this have gone into the 10s of thousands.

When I threatened Soundcloud that I was going to the press, I wanted this much coverage, I just didn’t think it was going to happen. And all of this has happened because I wanted to promote the music that I love for the artists that make it happen.

UPDATE: Soundcloud have now issued statements directly to Mixmag and on the whole ordeal, which read like a copy/paste from their terms of service.
