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.
