SoundCloud experiment with new post-release recommendation feature

Extending on their existing autoplay algorithm, SoundCloud’s ‘First Fans’ feature recommends your newly uploaded tracks to listeners who are likely to enjoy them.

To start with, autoplay will recommend the track to around 100 people with listener profiles that align with your music. Any plays from the recommendations are counted as real streams and would be paid out like any other stream.

This feature is still in an experimental stage but they will be looking to roll this out more broadly to Next Pro users in the near future.
