99,9%... and "unsigned" is the wrong name for that... 99% of those tracks are crap that will hever get signed. it's just a big trashcan for newbies.

maybe but what did they post there? full-lenght-tracks? sure not! only promo snippets in bad quality and some dj mixes. example: http://soundcloud.com/maceoplex

i like soundcloud because of the waveform-player. but the community itself is just for business purposes (drop tracks to labels, connect to other producers or djs) because there are almost no ordinary people/fans who just listen to music or buy tracks.
