REverb Rock ·· Fables

He's got this nonchalant way of seducing you in.

I don’t say this too often, especially not so prematurely, but REverb Rock’s got potential for big tings (things). So far I only like the two tracks that’ve come off his soon to be released Fables album, but those two have been floatin ’round my head for days – and not in just the usual way.

At first, I thought of his sound as just some pleasant chillwave or whatever you wanna call it, but (not so) soon after I realized REverb’s music is much more than that. His voice has this nonchalant way of seducing you into his lyrics. The words are as simple as they come, yet as clear in my head as I’ve ever pictured. And although he may be much more of a storyteller to me now, his music production carries an almost equal weight.

Fables is fully out in December. But not getting my hopes up, yet (never ends well).

Atlas Genius · Trojans (Lenno Remix)

Love when beautiful Indie vocals turn to Disco

You can’t quite tell right off the bat how well these vocals will carry, but once you get into the mess of it all, you quickly realize – especially with Lenno’s dirty disco mixed in. Unlike the original indie piece, Lenno brings in that raspy bass & nu-disco charm, which brings the vocals to much higher heights.

Gary Clark Jr · Ain’t Messin ‘Round

What'ch you know about Blues Rock beats?

We don’t get much of this blues rock ’round here, but Gary Clark Jr. got us goin with his latest, ‘Ain’t Messin Round.’ His voice is what caught our attention, it just goes so well with this blues rock beat, but the electro guitar solo is what topped it all off just right.

Make sure to catch his debut album, Blak And Blu, out October 22.

Luminaire ·· Separate Ways

From Disco to House, just like our soulful forefathers

Luminaire’s Seperate Ways is a 5-track EP with a healthy mix of House & Disco. And even though it’s hard to differentiate Disco from House at times, I of course flock to the side that carries the soulful singers (disco, I’m guessing). ‘Allready Over’ & ‘It Will Be Allright’ are right up there with what first got me into my love lust with Luminaire, but they still gotta ways to go to toppel my first love.

SoundCloud’s Best Educators & Storytellers

Digging up the most fascinating conversations on the 'Cloud

Learning through sound is one of my favorite ways to relax. I can just sit back and listen. However, music seems to be taking up most of my time, but I plan to change that. Since my listening routine with music is mostly on SoundCloud, integrating storytellers & educators into my SoundCloud stream might even out my daily bias towards music.

So I’ve taken to SoundCloud to find & filter the most fascinating SoundClouders around. I’ve rummaged through Voices, the Fellowship program and their “Suggested users” to come up with eleven knowledgable SoundClouders in their own right. It basically comes down to what they say and how they say it (kinda like music), but here’s more specifics on how I determined who to select: […]

Lovelife · The Key

Sexy-pop fantastic

I don’t know if I’m really feeling the literal lyrics on Lovelife’s ‘The Key,’ but I’ve never been one to look into lyrics too much. I do, however, love looking into sound and the build up to the chorus in this is pretty damn pop fantastic. Once that chorus hits, you know Lovelife is in it for big things and you know those heartthrobbed teens are gonna eat ’em up once they get the chance (I’m right there with ’em).

Moullinex · Take My Pain Away (Gigamesh Remix)

Won't take your pain away for a day, but four minutes is plenty enough.

Does this not sound like an intro to some 70’s, 80’s or 90’s flick Maybe like a teen movie or a Miami Vice type show. Or maybe something out of Grand Theft Auto or Scarface… Whatever it is, Gigamesh always brings nu-disco interests and always backed up with some fine ass vocals. God, if this doesn’t get your heart pumpin plenty… you shouldn’t be listening to us.

Music Inspired by the Love for Cali

Over twenty tracks for the pride of the best in the West

I originally wanted to make a mix of music inspired by California about six months back when I moved to The Bay Area from Minnesota, but shit got hectic & I got lazy. I moved out to Cali because I wanted to get into the music/tech scene and Minnesota just wasn’t cutting it. Well, I’ve been in & out of some pretty cool companies since, but still haven’t landed a permanent job. Especially at the one company that actually drove me out here (quite literally), SoundCloud.

My attempts to get SoundCloud’s attention have been pretty much failures, most notably my SoundKlout project, but in the least it’s given you all a lot of good content on here. However, I still haven’t given up hope! (and never will) So for their recently posted “Communications internship,” I decided to do a few special projects to hopefully get their attention once and for all. Here I present Part I in hopes to tell a little about my story and get you all sympathizing for me so you actually help me out! Plus, we get to throw some quality Cali music at ya.

The Other Tribe · Skirts (Eat More Cake Remix)

Sometimes the remix does it better with the vocals

Life’s a bitch, but thank god we’ve got music like this. Eat More Cake’s remix of ‘Skirts’ takes these tease-filled vocals and accompanies them with a far more calming state of Electronica than its original. Which fits the vocals much better.

Mansions on the Moon · Radio

Moon Music the next big thing? Yes, because of the cool themed parties.

I sure love these Moon goers. From Moon Boots to Mansions on the Moon, Moon music is some stellar shit. Radio’s message & sound are hopeful, but the chorus seems a bit cheesy at times (“ya ya ya”).
