Posting DJ Sets, Mixtapes, and Podcasts

February 2, 2011 6:10 PM

What's the story for posting DJ Sets, Mixtapes, and other Podcasts?

I imagine that the upload capacity for MeFi Music is too tight for people to be uploading hour-long sets here, but I'm wondering if there would be a way to post a link to mixes/podcasts we've uploaded elsewhere (on Soundcloud, for example).

I think the right fit for you might be in Projects. I suggest that because it sounds like you might have ongoing stuff that could have a following of folks, whereas in MeFiMusic we just post songs.

Yeah, sets and mixtapes and podcasts are all pretty much off mission for Music song posts, and not just for length reasons: in the first two cases we're to my understanding talking about things that are composed largely of other people's pre-existing content, which is touchy territory in its own right.

A Music Talk post about "hey, here is a thing I've been working on" if you're looking to sort of talk about the musical work you're doing is probably a-okay, yeah. Doing that, linking in some externally hosted audio, I figure why not.

And snsranch is right on that if you've got something hosted on the web that's kind of a complete or ongoing project that people can go check out and listen to, making a Projects post to a page/blog dedicated to it would be an okay thing to do.

I would like to hear Mefites' (mixed, not just compiled) DJ sets and mixtapes. (I'm just posting here so I can see updates in my Recent Activity.)

I'm working on a new mix now, I guess I'll post a link here when I'm done.
