Yes, understand what you mean but the problem you have is trying to circumnavigate it getting taken down from Soundcloud etc.
As soon as you post up the artist you get busted with a strike against you.
At one point I had about 25 taken down just in one day that originally they let me post up over a number of months before hand.
Soundcloud in particular got really strict.
You’ll find nearly all the edits you come across on sites like Soundcloud are via people doing it just for fun and no money involved at all apart of course from the Joey Negro’s and Opolopo’s of the world.
Some are awesome when you consider they are done by what you can term as just enthusiasts.
Btw you don’t get paid by Soundcloud, hearthis.at etc. if you post up an edit.
In fact it actually costs you if have a premium account on there. Also the companies pay nothing to the artists as in effect they don’t want re edits on there as they could end up liable. The way sort of around this is some allow you to post up under a Creative Commons licence which is basically you agreeing it’s not for profit. And as you’re not paying for the stream the host site also makes nothing so no royalties to share out.
