This was one of my most liked remixes on Soundcloud before removal (check out my other post regarding copyright complaints on my account!). The remix is currently only available on Apple Music, but hopefully it will come on Spotify and Tidal soon. Thanks for you support, link for the stream can be found here
Got a lot of messages recently from my followers on Soundcloud asking me where all my remixes went. I released a Will Smith and 5 Seconds of Summer Remix in December called “Getting Jiggy With Youngblood”. It hit 5000 plays in a week before Universal reported it in as a copyright issue. Here is a copy of the message I received from Soundcloud:
We’ve received a report directly from Universal Music Group that your track “Will Smith Feat. 5 Seconds Of Summer – Getting Jiggy With Youngblood (Azzendo Remix) FREE DOWNLOAD” contains “Youngblood” by 5 Seconds Of Summer. As a result, your track has been removed from your profile for the time being.
– Wait SoundCloud, I think I have the rights to this!

So yes. The days of Kygo remixing on Soundcloud is officially over. Considering that a lot of famous DJ’s, mixers, and artists were discovered on Soundcloud remixing songs, it seems now that one has very little wiggle room before getting charged for copyright infringement.
As the warning says, if I get 2 more strikes after this, my account will go bye bye. So to be on the safe side, I completly removed all of my old remixes.
For now I thank any fans for the support so far and promise alot of cool original content in the future.
Btw got any experience with Soundcloud, copyright issues?
