"We have 10 hours or more of incoming audio published every minute—that’s 14,400 hours a day—on SoundCloud. For us, it’s important that people are able to publish the entire spectrum of sound. It’s a very emotional and powerful medium."
Eric Wahlforss, cofounder and CTO, SoundCloud

Rio Caraeff, president and CEO, Vevo
