1) show something happen in the UI straight after clicking play - there might be several seconds latency before it starts streaming now
2) pause any currently playing track after clicking "Play" on another track, so you don't get a soundclash

I was experiencing some errors on the website (i.e. songs not playing and showing a red x). When I looked into the browser console, I saw, among an error and some warnings, this URL. I shortened it a bit, because HN automatically translates URLs into proper links, which might or might not be a good idea here.
https://pastebin.com/vv2AMmCN contains a list of all the different soundcloid accounts I've created over the years so there's a bunch of random crap to dig through if the interest exists
THANK YOU! This is great, how can we credit you properly?
there may be some redundancy across all these but there's more music that I made throughout the years stored in those as well. Note that the quality may very severely because those contain the music that I made when I first started 14 years ago as well. but either way there's a lot more there if your curator is willing to dig.
Was the intent that all of the music listed there be released under a "CC-BY" license?
Also playback and download links are 404ing when hitting dropboxusercontent.com URLs
For other folks looking for free/libre music, here are a few other resources I found:
* Starfrosch https://starfrosch.com/
* CCTrax https://cctrax.com/
* Free Music Archive http://freemusicarchive.org/
With SoundCloud in the financial trouble it is in, and sites trying to use their API without paying, you could have a very good resource here.
Have you got any plans regarding an api?
Thanks for the feedback, if you have a specific use-case in mind API-wise, please don't hesitate one second to contact me @aabergkvist (twitter)
Would love to offer you some of our material. All of it is CC-BY-SA. If interested let me know and I can send download codes!
