SoundCloud's latest feature crafts playlists from fresh uploads

'The Upload' looks at your listening history to craft daily mixtapes.

Soundcloud isn't like other music streaming services. Rather than offering the back catalogs of seemingly every musician on the planet, the service is more of a resource for one-offs, mash-ups and folks looking for unique tunes to put into their DJ sets. As a way to help you discover more of what's on its servers, SoundCloud has launched "The Upload." The features looks at what you've liked and played and delivers a daily playlist based on your listening history.

To keep things fresh, these tracks will all have been uploaded within the past few days. The update is out on desktop, Android and iOS right now. To find it on the latter, navigate to the "search" tab and it should be right up top. Given the surfeit of music (and podcasts) available on the service, this should help people wade through what's available and maybe even find a few new artists to obsess over along the way.
