This week, we asked you to choose the SoundCloud Local city. It was a close call but the city that won was Saint Petersburg, Russia! Hear what this city has to offer below.
Vood is a solo musician working on abstract, experimental tracks, which are all instrumentally-based with a few vocal samples here and there. His tracks are nice to relax to and inspire positive thinking. You can check out all the goodies he has on his page and hear some of them below.
Ilya Pechersky calls himself a newbie video game composer, but from what it sounds like below, he’s a pro! He’s based in Saint Petersburg and is a creator, student and writer there. He’s all about sharing his thoughts and mostly writing video game music, both technical and creative.
Alex, otherwise known as “timely aiah”, creates tracks that exude the “pleasure of difference and the anxiety of being (utterly) disconnected. It’s a tentative connection to material existence, to processes both functional and faulty.” For the most part, these tracks are full of energy and wonderful glitchy-ness.
Fake Ferda is a combination of electronics, nu jazz, trip-hop, big beats and all those fun things. The compositions created by Fake Ferda are mostly electronic structures with jazz elements along with acoustic sound and samples, and some characteristic styles of minimal and glitch.
Since 2007, Rogerrr has been composing electronic music and working on music/sounds for games and videos. Here, you can hear his latest release, Lifestreaming, and if you want to check out the other tracks he’s produced, you know where to go, the link below!
If you’re based in Saint Petersburg and we didn’t get around to featuring you, please join the group.
Also, we recently announced Global Meetup Day, happening on the 5th of October. Saint Petersburg, here’s yours! And to everyone else, check out if there’s one scheduled in your area here. If not, feel free to start your own! Don’t forget to take a peek at our SoundCloud Local features to see if your city’s been spotlighted yet.
