Bristol is the focus of this week’s SoundCloud Local. Situated in South-West England, Bristol has produced the likes of Banksy and Massive Attack, as well as the following three SoundClouders. Let’s have a listen:

Vaetxh

Rob Clouth makes electronica, (or as he calls it ‘glitchstep’) as Vaetxh. The intricate rhythms, filled with degraded buzzes and clicks are reminiscent of the likes of Prefuse 73 and Telefon Tel Aviv.

Lord Edward Dark

Lord Edward Dark is the solo project of Phillip Collings, full of lush orchestrations and harmonious vocals. Phillip’s currently posting the progress he’s making on two new albums over on his SoundCloud account.

The subject of this week’s SoundCloud Local, is Ann Arbor, another Midwestern American city, this time situated in the Great Lakes Region.  Positioned between Detroit (the home of Techno), and Chicago (the birthplace of House), let’s see what combinations we find…

Christopher Norman

The music that Christopher Norman makes isn’t Techno, or House, but orchestral electronic pop.  Chris describes himself as “a man with a couple instruments, a few microphones, and a minimoog.” Take a listen below.

Sad Souls

Elkhart

Little is known about Elkhart, other than the fact that is the surname of a man called Thomas.  Elkart’s music is rooted in the area’s heritage of drum machines, synths and grooves.  Take a listen below.

We Are The Union

It’s not all electronic beats and chilled atmospherics coming out of Ann Arbor though.  We Are The Union are a five-piece band specialising in ska-punk, known for their love for fast music, horns and their incredibly short attention spans.
