As the dance music scene gains more and more popularity it seems like the talent continues to get better at a younger age. The 17 year old Caveat is the newest name on the scene with his remix of “Make It Bun Dem” by Skrillex and Damian Marley.

If nothing else, if SoundCloud does not have the manpower to police its ten million plus users, one way to remedy the situation would simply be to reach out to your users with global messages via your site and via your social media to put a halt to this madness.
