Remember when we asked you to help choose the SoundCloud Local city last week? Well, since it was an extremely close call, we’re featuring Lisbon, Portugal, this week! We found some awesomely talented members there. Check ’em out!
Interested in some experimental, psychedelic, trippy music? Maybe some “shoegaze”? If you answered “yes” to those, have a listen to Shadowset (also known as Jose Palhota)! He’s an active member of the community uploading some cool tracks. Hear them all below and head over to his page to give him a follow.
“Crk” was born in 1982 and has a birthday coming up (Happy Early Birthday)! He’s an independent self-taught IDM producer, who creates raw and complex music with a balance between melodic and dark ambient, and a hint of breakcore. Check it out below to get a better idea.
Submersus’ musical journey started back in school when he was part of a traditional folk band and other projects. All of these projects gave him more experience playing music and instruments, such as the drums, bass, guitar and piano. Hear where that experience has brought him today.
Pedro e os Lobos
Pedro e os Lobos is a recent project by guitarist and composer, Pedro Galhoz. The project is based on musical freedom, in which “the mix of landscapes alternate between passion for the desert and awe of urban chaos, creating the feeling of a voyage through various and different stops.”
Mir the Bloody
Mir the Bloody is an underground hip hop producer from a graffiti crew based in Lisbon, Portugal. He produces instrumental beats and musical arrangements. He’s also out to prove that money doesn’t create music or make a person feel any emotions.
Pretty awesome stuff, huh? But don’t go yet! For more tracks from Lisbon, you can check out citysounds.fm/lisbon
And if you’re based there and we didn’t get around to featuring you, please join the group and submit some tracks.
Oh, don’t forget: Global Meetup Day is right around the corner, happening on the 5th of October! Lisbon, check out yours! And to all you other peeps, check if there’s one scheduled in your area here. If not, feel free to start your own! You can see all our highlighted cities for SoundCloud Local at this link as well.
