Earlier this week, SoundCloud debuted their brand new Twitch channel dedicated to enriching the music community; and with it, comes an enormous amount of education in the form of free workshops, music, and intimate conversations with a variety of esteemed representatives in the music industry.

The online music sharing website has detailed that each week, viewers will have the opportunity to be included in a positive and engaging environment, set on providing the tools and resources necessary for the next generation of artists and music personnel to be successful.

In a statement released by SoundCloud, the company said:

“Each week, ‘SoundCloud on Twitch’ will bring the music community together to connect in real-time, inspire creativity, celebrate great music, and share the best resources, for helping creators grow their careers.”

Some of the guests included in the first lineup of SoundCloud’s creative hangout include, Vic Mensa (a Chicago born rapper), Kathryn Frazier (the founder of Biz 3), Georgette Cline (a representative from XXL), as well as Joe Kay (a member from LA’s rising independent record label, Soulection).

On Wednesday, a special 90 minute episode titled, “Studio Sessions With Soulection” aired, in which Joe Kay hosted a very live and funky set of tunes and mixes from the past and present. And yesterday, a three hour long chat with top industry leaders and executives called “Cloud Bar” aired that discussed a diverse range of topics regarding the music industry.
