A Palm Sounds SoundCloud group?

A couple of people have suggested this idea and I wanted to gather some more opinion on it. I know there are already a bunch of app focused groups on SoundCloud, but there’s also the Handheld Music group which doesn’t seem to have got any love for a little while now.

So, what do you think? revisit the Handheld group or start fresh?
