Gee! This is the best. I am such a Soundcloud fan girl, and this update to their site just makes me fall for their brand even harder.
Re: Homepage - What a great, sunny vibe it gives off right away. And the people! Real people! How many sites do you hit and immediately see people that large?
Re: Site overhaul - This feels very much like what Soundcloud should have been "all along." Quite similar to the feeling I got when Foursquare finally revamped Explore. From the article: "New features include the ability to 'follow' for bands and artists, while sounds can be shared more easily, comments are real-time and there are more notifications."
What do you all think? Have you done similar updates on your sites?
