SoundCloud has come a long way from just ripping down DJ mixes and producer samples from their site. They'll now be paying DJs and producers for their work.

With the streaming site's Premier program, those who remix can finally earn money for their work. "DJs and producers who create sets, remixes and other forms of creative works will now be invited to join our SoundCloud Premier program and earn revenue for the tracks they share," the site wrote in a new blog post.

As of now, SoundCloud Premier is still an invite-only feature, but learn more about it here.
