Soundcloud Temporarily Takes Down Martin Garrix & Usher Track
Soundcloud's take downs hit a new target, one who comes as a surprise given his renown stature in the electronic music world. Martin Garrix posted on Twitter saying that his collaboration with Usher, "Don't Look Down," disappeared from his account for unknown reasons. Garrix announced he was in the process of working with his record label Spinnin' to get the track reuploaded to his account. After a few hours, Soundcloud posted "Don't Look Down" back to Garrix's account. Garrix nor Soundcloud revealed any follow-up information.

Soundcloud continues to make changes to its policies, notably after the site partnered with media branding website Zefr to find ways to incorporate ads into the site's infrastructure. Even before the Zefr partnership, Soundcloud became notorious for taking down tracks on short notice and without giving discernible reasons. The biggest track sweep occurred a few weeks ago when the Sony record label took down all of its associated artist's tracks due to a failure to set future terms.
