SoundCloud ICYMI: Check out the latest episode of ‘SoundCloud Next Wave’

The latest episode of SoundCloud Next Wave, SoundCloud’s mini-docuseries spotlighting emerging music scenes around the globe, is now available. The latest episode, ‘Northern Stars,’ features Toronto-based, budding local artists Harrison, a l l i e, Birthday Boy and M.I. Blue, whose music is characterized by a futuristic and playful blend of r&b, electronic and pop. The episode captures the emerging music scene that exists slightly left of what’s most popular in the Canadian city and is danceable, groovy, fun and bright.

The SoundCloud Next Wave series shines a spotlight on the stories and sounds behind the fringe creator communities changing music culture. Together, the episodes encapsulate a six-city journey that introduces the innovative, and often rebellious, emerging artists that have embraced SoundCloud as a medium to connect, collaborate, and create new musical landscapes.  

‘Degenerate Generation, the debut episode of SoundCloud Next Wave went live in July and explored Los Angeles-based artists Lil Tracy, Fat Nick and Pouya, who stand at the helm of the goth rap movement.

Stay tuned here for upcoming episodes featuring scenes in New York, Rio, London, and Berlin.

Specifics: Kat, from Scotland, Community team – support specialist

Was relocating difficult?: Nope, the SoundCloud HR team made it easy!

Favorite thing about Berlin: Night clubs / Night life / Electronic music!

Favorite thing about working at SoundCloud: Meeting all the diverse individuals at the company

Favorite sound: Reverberating bass from outside a night club before you go inside

Here are some of Kat’s favorite sounds on the ‘Cloud:

“One everyone here is aware of, but Maedels With a Microphone was awesome to listen to when I was still dreaming of moving to Berlin as they capture sounds and do spoken word podcasts about this wonderful city.

My friend Krysia is a student at Glasgow School of Art and she makes amazing sounds for her sculpture pieces and installations. She’s a Berlin & electronic music enthusiast too.

And

Soundwalk Collective are a collective based in Berlin and New York, and do live, often venue specific recordings which can become temporary or permanent sound installations. My favourites, obviously, are the Berghain studies, sounds from the vibrations and resonances from areas in the club.”
