We’re taking a trip up to Northern Ireland and saying hello to the largest city there known as Belfast. Here, we found some awesome users, and had trouble choosing only five! So if we missed you, join the group linked at the end of the post.

Rachael Boyd
Young solo musician, Rachael Boyd, never plans what she’s going to record, so what she uploads to SoundCloud is almost all improvised. Most of it’s pretty experimental but some tracks have a hint of folk and classical music in them. Hear the tracks she’s come up with thus far and give her a follow on the ‘Cloud.

Joe McGrady
Joe McGrady is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He first picked up a guitar when he was 8 years old and has been playing it ever since! He plays and writes many different styles of music including: rock, blues, acoustic, folk, and pop. You can hear what he’s got on SoundCloud below.

Mama Kaz
Born as a natural performer, Mama Kaz has been entertaining since her early years. She’s got talent and a lot of personality that she wants to share with you! She writes her songs herself and has a band performing along her side. You can hear these tracks at the link below or in the red player!

Put Beyond Use
Student and musician based in Belfast, Gerard Lenaghan is a very active SoundCloud member whose profile description simply states: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Not entirely sure what that means but his tracks are dark and mysterious — just like his profile picture. Hear for yourself!

EV1LR1V3R
Andrew Wightman (EV1LR1V3R) likes to make dark music (much like Put Beyond Use above) and explore themes of unholiness. But when he has some vanilla coke, the tracks become a bit happier. So there’s a mix of happy music inspired by vanilla coke and dark music inspired by…well, darkness.

SoundCloud Local this week is taking a look at Anchorage, USA. And yes, that’s right, this city is located in the cold state of Alaska! This northern area has some hidden gems (also known as awesome SoundClouders). Check them out below!

Starship Amazing
Starship Amazing is a musical electronic group based out of Anchorage, Alaska. Derek Alexander and Calvin Hansen formed Starship Amazing in the early summer of 2007, and after that, a legend was born! Since then, they have independently produced five full-length albums!

ambroseftmusic
Ambrose Freeman-Toole uploads neo-romantic and hardcore tunes. He writes music in hopes of evoking images of hunting parties, galloping horses, operas and more. Don’t be fooled by the first couple of tracks though. If you keep listening you’ll be swept away to a completely different place then before.

.Sound.Smith
Here’s a guy who’s just started using MPC (that’s a music-editing program)! He goes by the name of Charles Harrison-Jimmy — or .Sound.Smith on the ‘Cloud — and uploads some cool tracks using his new software. He’s doing a great job for just starting out! You can hear the progress he’s making already.

Socialtrophy
Socialtrophy is Eric Hayes, a guy uploading samples and sounds based in the wintery city of Anchorage. A lot of his sounds are just tests that he’s created with his Macbook, using SoundCloud in a different way — uploading tests to see how they sound! Hear his short clips below.

Lucidstatic
From the chilly landscapes of Alaska comes a talented new artist by the name of Lucidstatic — or Jimmy Church. His tracks are a blend of glitch, breakcore, industrial, IDM, and can sometimes provoke a bit of fear. Lucidstatic is an innovator of hard electronic sounds. You can get a taste of it in the red player!
