We’re getting closer to Global Meetup Day and in Singapore, SoundCloud users will be celebrating the Chinese New Year as well as getting together offline to mingle! We’re taking a look at this area filled with a multitude of talented SoundCloud users.

Justin Koh
After Justin Koh is finished watching sci-fi movies, discovering quaint new places to eat, and curating pictures of cats for his Tumblr blog, he’s creating instrumentals and samples! He’s looking to provide these to film scores, collaborations and session work! Check it out.

Melakartha
Here’s something we don’t see everyday, metal on the ‘Cloud! Sridhar is a guitarist, frontman, composer and record producer. He plays in another band called Sage and Melakartha is his experimental, metal project he’s doing on the side right now. There’s no resistance in these tracks!

Arajua
Now, chill out and relax a bit with Arajua, a duo comprised of Muhd Fazly and Abdul Hakim. They started it up in 2006 and are now working on their first EP called Blueprints. They’re hoping to bring honey to local – and international – ears. Keep an eye on their SoundCloud page for more to come.

He’s a music school graduate and has much of his work performed by reputable orchestras and used in short films.

David Go West! Hello San Francisco.

Hello California, Hello San Francisco!

Yesterday we announced the launch of our West Coast operations in San Francisco! Home of some of the most successful tech companies, we’re happy to be neighbors with all of the people, places and things that make the Bay Area awesome.

To get started, we’ll set up shop at The Summit in the Mission District of San Francisco and to learn more, listen to SoundCloud Co-founder & CEO Alex speak about why we chose San Francisco as our first US home in the audio message below:

Why we’re opening @Soundcloud San Francisco by Alex

Notice Alex coining the term slogging for sound blogging? Neat.

If you’re interested to be amongst the very first people to shape our US team and grow our West Coast presence, make sure to check the details of the following two job openings for San Francisco:

If one of these positions sound like you, get in touch with us, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
