In the heart of Poland, we’re diving in and discovering some cool, unique SoundCloud users. Warsaw is our SoundCloud Local destination this week and we have five awesome users below!
Neil Milton is a Scottish composer and musician based in Warsaw, and is also the owner of Too Many Fireworks records. His music is described as a “glacial snowdrift of ambient soundscapes, electronic experiments and haunting, elegant modern-classical compositions.”
Last Blush is composed of Dorota Morawska (vocals) and Adam Nowak (Producer). They founded the band in 2010 in Warsaw when they decided to join forces! Their work is electronic and inspired by bands like Massive Attack, Groove Armada, Fever Ray, Goldfrapp, Portishead, Moloko, and M83.
Village Kollektiv was formed in 2002 by a few Polish folk/fusion groups. The music produced by the Village Kollektiv is the first Polish fusion of electronics with live sound of original instruments and singing. The musicians use traditional melodies originating from the Polish Kurpie region.
Maja Olenderek Ensemble
Along with Adam Świtała, Maja Olenderek and her ensemble combine exquisitely subtle piano and emotional vocals and lyrics, turning each song into a “plea for redemption.” Their performance demonstrates their creative reinterpretation of music. Check ’em out below!
If you want to listen to some Polish rap/hip-hop, check out paskiwpaski (aka Rafal)! Even if you can’t understand the lyrics, the rhythm, groove and beat will get your head bobbing. You can hear some tracks from Rafal’s latest EP, Leniwe Lato, below, and give him a follow at the link as well!
