The deal with live discovery and recommendation site Songkick will allow acts to include Songkick gig listings in their SoundCloud profile. This will enable users to link through to purchase tickets for their shows. It works on an opt-in basis for artists and can be managed within their SoundCloud profile.
The integration with Foursquare allows SoundCloud's 3m registered users to share their audio files through the location-based check-in service.
SoundCloud founder and CEO Alexander Ljung says, "Every cross-platform integration we make is like another Lego brick being stuck together, with the ultimate goal of building the best sound sharing and creation experience that spans the web. By collaborating and working together, Lego brick by Lego brick, we're all making sound creation more accessible to everyone, everywhere."
