This SoundCloud Local we stopped by a west coast city in the US called Portland! This city has a great deal of talented and diverse SoundCloud users based there. We had a look at five below!
Feel like listening to some intense electronic music that will make you move your head – and body? Produced by a very passionate guy living in Portland, Negutyv Xeiro, was originally born in St Louis and developed his musical skills in Chicago. Even though these tracks are works in progress, they’re impressive!
Joel Hunger has been playing, composing and recording music for a while now. For about a year and a half, he’s been focusing his energy on creating music for royalty free use, and since then has created nearly a hundred tracks. Currently everything you hear is available for sale for royalty free use on sites.
Saffron Slumber is the solo ambient project of Kevin Stephens. He’s based in Portland, Oregon, and has been uploading to SoundCloud regularly. His music can be described as experimental and drone-like, but you can hear for yourself below and check out more of his music at the link.
Natasha Kmeto is a singer/producer making music that is somewhere between left-field hip-hop, modern R & B and experimental electronic music. She’s been on the upswing since the release of her latest album Expressor. You can hear some of her sultry tracks below!
Beyoung Yu likes to be honest in real life and in the musical world. As he quotes on his myspace page: “…don’t like it when people […] make music that doesn’t represent them”. He’s influenced by Living Legendz (Murs, Eligh and Grouch), Zion I, Danger Doom, Gemini, Guru, Jurasic 5 and much much more.
