SoundCloud has faced its fair share of challenges in attempting to monetize its business model. Last summer, former SoundCloud CEO Alex Ljung stepped down as part of an agreement in which The Raine Group and Temasek Holdings purchased a dominant share in the company.

At the time of writing, neither SoundCloud nor Dubset have disclosed a timeline for the research and development of their remix monetization tools.
