Lyndsie Alguire
Based out of Montréal, Canada, Lyndsie Alguire is a lover of sound, noise, and music. She told us: “Because of SoundCloud, I’ve got an LP coming out with a local Montréal label next month.” Pretty awesome stuff!

We’re giving the microphone to a musical city from the pacific west coast of North America. This SoundCloud Local feature, we’re letting Seattle, USA, show us what they got!

Sliptide
A producer/artist living in Seattle, who primarily works from a down tempo or house influence, but still finds himself experimenting and working in every genre that catches his fancy, whether it be garage rock, trance or hip-hop! He’s a passionate SoundCloud member and is willing to collaborate as well!

Yuni In Taxco
Yuni In Taxco formed in the fall of 2009 after escaping the grey skies of Seattle for the beaches of Mexico. They’re influenced by the Beach Boys era of psychedelia. Right now, they’re currently turning heads in Seattle with their swirling blend of world rhythms and surf pop. Check ‘em out!

Vervex
Vervex is a guy from Seattle making his own tracks, samples and recordings all by himself. He’s a big fan of Ableton Live and produces all his tracks from that program. If you like what you hear below, don’t be afraid to share it with a friend or two, and of course, follow him over on the ‘Cloud.

Jazzyspoon
Jazzyspoon doesn’t like to stick to one genre when creating music. All his tracks have a little bit of something else in them so if you’re not into the first track you hear, you may feel the second, third, fourth or even seventh! Go on and check out this Seattle-based artist!

Cascadian
Alliedee is Alison Doyle, or better known as the moniker Cascadian. You may remember her from last November, when she was our SoundClouder of the Day. She started to play the piano and guitar at a young age, and is very talented. Get lost in some of her tracks below!

If you’re a user based in Seattle, please join the SoundCloud Local Seattle group and submit your tracks — we would love to hear them! Also, we hope some of you got to attend the meetup last night in Seattle! If you missed it, keep your eyes peeled for another on Meetup.com!

To everyone who attended a SoundCloud meetup in your area yesterday, thanks so much for coming out and getting together! Maybe you will see a couple of familiar faces in the next SoundCloud Local :)

David Thank You. Three. Million. Times.

3 Million. 3,000,000. Three Million.

Wow. Yesterday, the day when thousands of SoundCloud users all over the world met for the Global Meetup Day to create locally and share globally, we were more than thrilled to welcome our 3 millionth user to the fast-growing SoundCloud community, just little less than 100 days after reaching two million users.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand (three million?) words. The photo below was taken by douglasfugazi at the SoundCloud Meetup in Medellin, Colombia. We can’t tell you how much it means the world to us to see our community grow and meet in person in so many different places across the planet.

I attended the Meetup in New York City and everybody I spoke to had so many nice things to say about SoundCloud and how it has helped them move their sounds across the web.

Read what people have been tweeting all day about the meetups and watch Tim Exile’s live production session, using sounds you sent him via SoundCloud and the Record button:

Oh, and Manchester meetup attendees checked in with a little Heloooo and We Love You last night:

Thank you, three million times, for making SoundCloud what it is today. Without you, this would not be possible.
