Marie Fun Friday: SoundClouders of the Week

We’re very excited about our new daily feature called SoundClouder of the Day! In case you missed it, we’ve been featuring a new user profile on our Twitter and Facebook accounts each day. What makes these users so special? Well, they’ve either been using SoundCloud in a unique, cool way and/or they’re a talented, undiscovered gem!

If you lost track of the SoundClouders of the Day, we’ll be compiling a list right here each week for you! So say hello to…

Leo Azevedo
Leo is an actor/voice-over artist based out of LA. He has a great sense of humor and is an excellent example of a unique, cool user on SoundCloud. Check out his SoundCloud page with all his voice-overs here and listen to one below!

Leaving Atlantis
Here’s an undiscovered, talented duo traveling between London, Copenhagen and Helsinki. Comprised of mainly Signe Gry Thorup and Vesa Haapanen, these two have been working on their first LP for the past two years and are on the verge of showing it to the world (ETA: end of this year)! Have a listen to their music to get an idea of what we’re talking about.

Rui Martins
Take a trip to a planet outside of this world and listen to Rui Martins (aka isle3music on SoundCloud). Based in Toronto, Canada, Rui Martins creates innovative electronic tracks! Hear his stuff here or stream below.

The Mouse Folk
Check out this young & fresh band from Berlin (hey, that’s where our office is)! You can hear and download some of their demo songs on the ‘Cloud!

Dena From The Block
Here’s some more music from Berlin! Dena From The Block is originally from Bulgaria but has been living in Berlin since 2004. She recently recorded her first single “Finding / Waiting”. Hear it below and head to her SoundCloud page for more!

Next week, we’ll have another 5 SoundClouders for you! Stay tuned!

David Creative Commons Mashup Contest!

To celebrate the great collection of Creative Commons tracks on SoundCloud, we’re holding a remix contestCC style! So in the spirit of “some rights reserved”, upload your best CC samples and loops and then get remixing them into brand new pieces. It’s simple:

1. The sample repository can be found here. Get samples from others and upload your own! Make sure you make them download-able, add the CC-Attribution license and tag them properly (this is key!).

    Drop your samples here!

2. Create your mashup using the pieces provided in the sample repository, and upload it to the contest page.

3. Vote for the one you like the most!

Prizes: The user getting the most votes will be provided with a SoundCloud Pro account account and highlighted in our official blog together with three runners who’ll win a yearly SoundCloud Lite account.

The contest ends on October 24 (midnight CET) and the winners will be announced the following week.

Happy mash-up-ing!
