Marie SoundCloud Local: Vienna

Picture by cadoc, found on Flickr

For the fourth week of SoundCloud Local, we’re stopping by and checking out the capital of Austria, better known as Vienna! We found composers, electronic producers and all-around creative users in this fine city.

Apostata

Apostata is an electronic enthusiast! Here’s what he had to say: “I’ve been producing music for about 1 year now. In other online music communities, people weren’t interacting & I never got feedback. When I stumbled upon SoundCloud, everything changed! I’ve been improving my skills by interacting on this portal!”

Callrider

Living in a sound machine in Vienna, Callrider is an electronic producer ready to impress. Besides creating his own stuff, he also works with Madchen Brunner to create Monster Demolition Night (MDN). If anything, listen to his and MDN’s tracks below, and check out his label’s official site with SoundCloud players and all!
