Email Unlock for SoundCloud

SoundCloud Labs recently created a streamlined email marketing site tool centered around any user-selected sound. Essentially, it allows a musician or other audio artist to capture email addresses in exchange for a free download of their chosen SoundCloud audio file. It’s brutally easy to use. 1) sign into SoundCloud 2) start a campaign by selecting one of your SoundCloud sounds 3) voila, collect emails in exchange for sound downloads

Overall, I like the site and believe it has great utility. I would like to point out that BandCamp has been achieving this exact same effect for years with the “name your price” download option, (and numerous music promotion services like FanBridge have long focused on capturing emails) so no points to Email Unlock for originality.
