all my likes are on there, i don't even know how to get this music not in shit tier opus format.  I exclusively use youtube now.

Honestly what an embarrassment. their monetization strategy sucks ass.

you can use youtube-dl to download all of your likes off soundcloud

that's how I archive all of my likes every few months

no, they haven't gone bankrupt afaik, but they did shut down their london office to save money and laid off a bunch of employees

look in the bios for the artists if they have bandcamps

send them a message and ask if they wanna be friends, or offer to pay for the songs and a lot of the time artists will be like "nah man" and give you them for free

I've met so many cool musicians on soundcloud
