Our SoundKlout series is all about finding the best artists SoundCloud has to offer. Each article will spotlight a handful of good music from a selected SoundClouder. If you know anyone that needs noticing, make sure to hit us up with a few of their tracks.
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.
D.veloped – The Childish Games
Best Gambino remix I’ve seen, yet. Perfect example of well timed cuts.
“I really enjoy the soulful stylings of The Cranberries.”
D.veloped – Money Aint Stayin Alive
YES!! Didn’t know how well he’d blend this, but I guess that’s why they call him D.veloped.. or he does.
D.veloped – ¿Wheres The Bass?
Love the main beat on this, blends well with every track – can’t figure the name of it… anyone?
D.veloped – 2 Soul 4 Your Mom
Saw a new track on SoundCloud from D.veloped yesterday and I thought to myself, if I love this track he’s goin on the next SoundKlout. It’s not too shabby ;) The Hyphy samples did it in for me. Actually the Beastie Boys’.
D.veloped – Bustin’ Scary Rhymes
God damn can he cut.shit.up. Just the little bit of coiling // grinding // bass, whatever you wanna call it, MAKES it… it’s all in the detail! RAWR
D.veloped – Son of a Nun Ft. Nelly
This was the first track I heard of D.veloped on Turntable.fm. Let’s just say it impressed me enough to take a further look.
D.veloped – Fuck You, The Club Can’t Handle Me
Not a fan of Guetta or Flo Rida, but I gotta give props to mashing ’em up with Cee Lo’s “Fuck You,” works.
D.veloped – Drive It Like You Give a Fuck
This really all goes to the beat, shit topples it. Anyone know the name of it?
D.veloped – Wild Blends Version 2
One of his first tracks on his SC. Foreshadows a favorable future for D.
Let us know what you want D.veloped to mashup next in the comments
Also, gotta chance to ask D.veloped what he likes and dislikes about SoundCloud, check it:
Comment acknowledgment (amazing to comment on different parts of the track)
Statsheet (showing plays, favorites, downloads, all for each track —handy for tracking popular songs)
Embedded Feature (allows for easy coding on the many types of websites/blogs out there)
I wish there was a single embedded player (similar to Hypem). I cant tell you how many times I have wanted to navigate quickly around SC and have the song cut off cause I accidentally closed the page to go somewhere else.
Soundcloud is the best site to promote my music for free, but it is nearly impossible to track without disabling downloads (this problem happens with every artists out there, so I am not too worried tracking)
This site has advantages because it provides streaming and downloading without squandering users with ads. I love that feature.
