SoundCloud is launching its own channel on livestreaming platform Twitch, with a slate of original programming that includes panel conversations, music sets and more.

The programming kicks off on May 6 at 2 p.m. EST with the first edition of "Studio Sessions with Soulection," a music show hosted by the artist collective's founder Joe Kay showcasing the best undiscovered tracks on SoundCloud.

Other programs will include the live, weekly "Cloud Bar" panel, which will gather creators, music industry executives and influencers like CAA agents Zach Iser and Caroline Yim, Masked Gorilla music publication and record label founder Roger Gengo and rapper/producer Vic Mensa; "Fast Track," which will invite rising beatmakers to show off their talents in real-time; and "Player One," where artists will take part in Twitch's most popular offering -- video games.
