When people think about streaming music, more often than not, it is Spotify or Apple music that may come to mind. Well, we are introducing you to two more services we think you will enjoy.
SoundCloud has offered free music streaming for years. SoundCloud has been the place you go to listen to remixes and mashups. SoundCloud is big; it has more than 125 million tracks and 175 million monthly listeners. Now, SoundCloud has added to the user experience with SoundCloud Go, offering more hits from the Top-40 to sounds of the underground. You can now listen to your favorite mixes offline on your phone or tablet. Oh, ad-free listening as well. The subscription to SoundCloud Go will cost you $9.99 per month.
Tidal is the music streaming service owned by one of the world’s most successful rappers, Jay Z. Tidal offers a catalog of more than 40 million songs and 75,000 music videos. Tidal had big-name exclusives like Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo and Beyoncé’s Lemonade. We expect that there will also have more exclusive album releases from your favorite artists. Also, you can find playlists curated by Jay Z and Beyoncé. Tidal differs from services like Spotify or Apple Music because Tidal offers lossless sound quality. Lossless sound quality is to music as UltraHD 4k is to TV. Subscriptions for Tidal start at $9.99 and will go up to $19.99 for lossless quality audio.
