Mixcloud Site Redesign Enters Beta: Try It Now

London-based Mixcloud has announced a brand new version of their DJ mix sharing platform that’s launching into public beta today. On the design front, Mixcloud has refreshed the site’s structure, including a persistent audio player that follows the user around the site (like those found on HypeM and Soundcloud). There’s now a visually customizable user profile page, and Cloudcast pages that feature waveforms, colors, and prominent album art.

There’s also a new search layout that allows users to search tags, cloudcasts, and users concurrently – making it easier to find content instead of digging through each section individually.

Mixcloud is also promising a few extra features for the launch of what they’re calling “Mixcloud X” that aren’t in the beta yet, including continuous playback, a faster uploader, and more. We’re hoping they’ll consider building a Shazaam-like functionality that will take out the pain of time stamping mixes with the right track names – something that’s a headache for almost any DJ regularly uploading lengthy mixes to the site.
