SoundKlout 11 : Robin Skouteris

Pop mashups that are too damn fun to dance to

I try to stay away from too much pop on here, this is a site dedicated to independent music, but I’ve also gotta weakness for the mashup. Robin Skouteris is one of the few mashers who has a strong focus on pop and still catches my interest. She does, however, for the most part pick artists I actually have some respect for – Gaga & Madonna. If you’re not into pop, these are still fun as hell to dance to, just make sure to get your dancin shoes on ;)

SoundKlout 10 : Starfucker

Bangin' the shit out of your favorite celestial body

You know it’s sad I haven’t done that many posts on Starfucker – They’ve only gotten so much better over time. Their experimental style is hard to rap your head around, but once you get a hold on it, the shit is intoxicating. Sincerely a top group, not only on SoundCloud, but fo realz too.

SoundKlout 9 : Minnesota

The future of Bass Music

Going through Minnesota’s dubstep music, you start to see the progress in his work over the last year. His latest EP, Ancient Machines, puts Minnesota’s music on a whole ‘nother level. It kind of reminds me The Beatles, their first few hits were catchy, but it’s only ’til their later work does a whole new style of music emerge. I’m not saying he’s doing for dubstep what The Beatles did for rock, but he’s well on his way.

SoundKlout 8 : DJ Whatt

Taking music to new heights with that mashup game

There are many things to say about the music coming from DOSVEC, aka DJ Whatt, but what stands out the most is his ability to mash emerging styles. Mashup artists are the purveyors of what styles should already be working together, but haven’t quite gotten the clue, yet. DOSVEC takes many opposing styles and makes our ears’ adjust to something that’s a bit experimental now, but commonplace in a few years.

SoundKlout 7 : Kyprios

Mad love for that Pacific Northwest Hip-Hop

Really wanted to feature Kyprios as one of my first SoundKlouters, but there was one problem – he only has 6 tracks up on SoundCloud. I usually try to find artists with at least 20-30, so I can weed the better from the… not so better. But I knew how much I wanted him in a few weeks back, so I thought if all 6 tracks were solid he’d be up next. Let’s just say they were.

SoundKlout 6 : Blackmill

Seriously, who the hell thought up melodic dubstep?

Most would think that melodic dubstep was an oxymoron. As much as I’d agree with them, Blackmill has made melodic dubstep a reality for me. Somehow, Blackmill puts grace on one of the grimiest styles around, dubstep. With a downtempo vibe with melodies more catchy than Jesus on Acid, he’s doing something I hope to see much more in dubstep’s future.

SoundKlout 5 : D.veloped

I'm so happy he's so highly evolved developed

Going through D.veloped’s first few songs, I was amazed to find the mashups he had whipped up. Usually I’m not into mashups with a lot of tracks, super mashups, but D.veloped’s cuts and slices are well beyond his years (unless he’s old). What I actually found most interesting was the progression I saw from his older tracks to his newer ones. In just over a year, D.veloped’s choice in music and flow between tracks has improved tremendously. Every time I see a new track posted up of his on SC, I know it’s gonna be better than the last.

SoundKlout 4 : K-Murdock

From Panacea to Forever Famicom and beyond.

I was first introduced to K-Murdock through his stylings with Restoring Poetry in Music (RPM). He’s not technically a part of the band, but has contributed to it, as you’ll soon see. I’ve mostly gotten to know his work through Panacea and more recently his collaboration with Mega Ran, entitled Forever Famicom. But now going through his SoundCloud, I’m beginning to realize how much more he has to offer.

I’ll admit, I was a Raw Poetic fanatic and didn’t want to hear anything K would do without him. It took me long enough to listen to him and Mega Ran, but now hearing everything else, I realize how expansive his sound is. As much as I love his work in Panacea, I began to lose touch with them in their more recent albums. Going through all his other side projects on SC, from his work with rap artists I’ve admired for years to some absolutely gorgeous female vocals I’ve never heard, I’m pissed I didn’t get to it til now.

SoundKlout 3 : Hooky

If you like dubstep, you'll love this guy

I gotta warn you, if you don’t like dubstep, this probably isn’t for you. I completely understand why people don’t like it, I’m not quite sure why I do. However, it’s one of the most experimental genres & anything that forward-thinking, at leasts get my attention.

Hooky is a little different than the dubstep I usually listen to. For the most part I listen to dubstep remixes, I find a lot of regular dubstep to be frivolous with no real aim, but remixes tend to focus on the original tune… or should! However, Hooky has created a lot of his own work that I very much appreciate and, although I’m sure it takes a certain crowd, is worth checking out.

SoundKlout 2 : Funkanomics

Funkifying the hip-hop game, one track at a time.

This trio, hailing from southern Germany, takes the hip-hop game and funkifies it with “beautiful crunchy bass lines, coupled with pumping grooves.” Never would I thought such funky-ass remixes could come from Germany, but they are definitely one of the top players in this funksta game right now.
