This could be big for DJs and the Music Biz.

SoundCloud, the biggest music mix posting site, has cut the first ever deal with a music company, Warner Music, to allow DJ’s to post remixes/mashups of songs legally.  Before this there was no way to post mixes legally using major label songs.

For now it’s Warner tracks only that can be mixed and posted, but hopefully other labels will follow and there will finally be a way for DJs and producers to post creative remixes online, with compensation for the labels.
