SoundCloud This week’s SoundClouders of the Day

We had SoundClouders from Glasgow, Dublin, Finland, New Zealand and Littleton, USA, this week! Hear them all below.

Experimenting with sounds from progressive hip hop to melodic soundscapes, Kyle Vicory is a musician who hits a side of electronic music in ways only few explore. Check it out!

Mass Distraction
A collaborator and producer based in Dublin, Ireland, is Mass Distraction! He doesn’t like sticking to one genre and is influenced by Sufjan Stevens, The Eagles, Blonde Redhead and much, much more. Hear it for yourself!

A guitarist, composer and music educator from Finland is Audacom. He specializes in fusion and progressive rock, and began making music in the eighties. Now, he’s a teacher of electric and classical guitar.

Birds of Passage
Based in New Zealand, Alicia Merz is Birds of Passage. She’s fundraising so she can tour Europe and play all her haunting tunes. You can also preorder her debut record, Without the World. Learn more at the link below.

Sefiros is the performing pseudonym of Bryan Henderson, a Scottish musician who mainly creates electronic music in genres such as post-orchestral electronica, ambient, industrial, 8-bit, and more.

That’s all for now! Here’s a link to the group where all our SoundClouders of the Day reside.

This Thursday, we’re tuning into the largest city in Brazil and the southern hemisphere, better known as São Paulo! Check out the five different artists we found.

Leonardo Bardassi (aka Onbit) started producing electronic music in 1998 and since then, has been part of three different music projects. He’s always researching new music styles to influence him. His project Onbit, founded in 2007, is a mix of techno, house and experimentalism. Check it out!

Bruno Palazzo
Bruno Palazzo is a visual artist working with sound and vision. He spends most of his time creating sounds and mixing them up for the screen. Take a peek behind-the-scenes of his music and see how some of these sounds are created here and listen to his tracks below.

Described as Brazilian Groove, Ruspo has some nice tunes for you to listen to. If you like what you hear and are feeling generous, he accepts donations in mostly instruments, to be specific: a secondhand Akai MPD32. If you don’t have one and still like what you hear, feel free to follow him at the link below.

Looking for some straight-up rock music? Look no further, MindFlow is here! The band has a new album called Destructive Device, which they describe as an album packed with socially critical ideology. You can hear for yourself and check out their tracks in the player below.

AZm & B is a project created by a producer, adventuring in the art of multimedia that is video, image, sound, behavior, and feelings. Edo Belleza is the man behind the project and he’s unifying all his knowledge and applying a continuous experimentation.
