This week, we’re taking a look at a city otherwise known as the Windy City, i.e. Chicago! The abundance of talented SoundCloud users in this city is overwhelming (don’t forget SoundClouder of the Day alumni based in Chicago: Greg Gibbs, Candle Nine & Darius Greene), check out five more below.
H.u.e. is an interdisciplinary artist who is rooted in hip hop culture. He utilizes four disciplines to create compositions with a unified aesthetic, i.e. musical art, improvisational performance art, visual art, and written art. He has some amazing spoken word tracks as well, like “Musings on a rain filled morning”.
Crazy name, huh? Mentally Restarted is also known as Future Jared. The project is based in Chicago and produces electronic tracks, some are full of beats that’ll get your body moving and some will make you just want to lean back and relax! Hear it for yourself in the green widget.
Brian Kim is a lover of composing music. On his own, he creates tracks of different genres, from dramatic filmscores to smooth jazz — all with a hint of romance! He is also in a metal band called Sacred Dawn and plays the keyboards. You can hear his solo stuff in the player below!
Module Module is Alex Himpelmann and a sound designer located northwest of Chicago. He’s worked with sound synthesis for over ten years. Now, he’s producing electronic music that’s a blend of synthesis and foley recordings. Interested to know what that sounds like? There are some tracks below!
Recording in his closet and commonly known as Agility or Plan B, Gabe Caruso is uploading some awesome beats to the ‘Cloud. Some of these tracks are collaborations as well, and he’s down for more! Go on and check out some of his rhymes and collabs in the player below.
