SoundClouder of the Day | John Deery and The Heads
John Deery and The Heads hail from Derry, Northern Ireland. This four-piece band plays swoon-worthy indie, acoustic music. “Moonlight Sinatra” has a beautiful, simple harmony and is a “track about listening to Frank Sinatra and Beethoven on a quiet night with a loved one.” How romantic.
Fourhexagons is the musical project of Bryan Noll from Brooklyn, NY. His ambient music is a treat: cosmic, serene and meditative. He has even recorded some live during savasana in a yoga class, so if you’re seeking alternative suggestions for meditation music, seek Fourhexagons.
Duganz is a rapper from East Orange, New Jersey. “Pass Dat” is Duganz’s anthem to share his talent and flow with the world. The nice instrumental intro and the catchy hook makes this the perfect track to pump up to. Please pass Duganz the mic.
SoundClouder of the Day Allan Koay, of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, uses interesting compositional approaches when writing his music. His track H Stasis is a study in minimal piano figures that loop over each other. It constantly evolves and changes because there are always new figures and variations being introduced. Settle in for this 9 minute track and hear a great imagination at work.
Golden Days, a track by Brisbane, Australia based SoundClouder of the Day Jonathan Snoswell, is a gorgeous acoustic guitar instrumental. It sounds hopeful. Perfect listening as we start to get glimpses of Spring here and there.
I Don’t Want To Let You Down by SoundClouders of the Day The Sleepovers is a well structured indie pop song with tight production. The running bass line during the second verse feels a bit like early Elvis Costello, but there are also shades of Interpol and Vampire Weekend throughout the track. Enjoy this talented trio from Toronto.
Hendric Bünck is a young soundtrack composer from Berlin. His track Leaving is a dramatic string based adagio. It breaks down in the middle, only to come back with a strong orchestral swell, ending with an epic drama that sounds like yearning. Hendric is our SoundClouder of the Day.
Winter Blue, a tranquil track from SoundClouder of the Day Arbitrary Sky, starts with a field recording and then transitions into calm acoustic guitar. It’s a quiet hymn like folk song about Winter, as gentle as falling snow.
Eternal Keys is the moniker of keyboardist and composer Mimmo D’Ippolito from Carovigno, Italy.
Why Eternal Keys? He writes it’s a union of two words: “‘Eternal’ something timeless and ‘Keys’: abbreviation of the word “Keyboards”, a travel between Real Sensations, a World of Fantasy and Mysteries of Life.”
Influenced by soundtracks and modern classical pieces, Mimmo’s compositions are intriguing, cinematic and sometimes minimalist. “Letters and Pages” is a modern, minimalistic piano piece layered with ambient drone.
Agostino Silvestri calls himself an “enthusiastic amateur composer.” He writes across a wide range of styles including electronic, synth pop, and modern classical. His track Sweetness utilizes elements of all of those genres, combining stark piano with synth strings, keys, and drums.
Mikołaj Pomaz, today’s SoundClouder of the Day, hails from Gdańsk, Poland and plays under the moniker Vibe Origin. His composition “Before the Dawn” has a subtle use of background strings and gorgeous cascading piano.
If you’ve ever searched for an ambient and hip hop combo, Taydevenny might be who you’re looking for. Taydevenny is a rapper from the UK whose rhymes fit in perfect harmony with the ambient, alternative inspired beats he uses in his tracks. “Arabian Seas” is a dreamlike number.
Queensland, Australia based SoundClouder of the Day Rob Duff creates a variety of different kinds of music, but mostly electronic or guitar based tracks. His song Sudden Impact 2 is an instrumental combination of both, with beautiful finger picked classical guitar figures floating over electronic and synth effects. It’s a wistful and dramatic composition.
Zurich based SoundClouder of the Day fiocz creates, “frequencies, noises, and sound disorders with modular synthesizers. His work is based on sonic accidents, random modulations, and unforeseen ground loops.” His song 1,3,7 - trimetilxantina, which is also the more scientific name for caffeine, sounds like the jitters you can get after a few too many cups of coffee.
Sally Williams Schloegl is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Queensland, Australia. “When I Fall” is a somber ballad with an alternative rock sound that we all may relate to in some way or another.
"I’ve been writing songs about my life, loves and convictions- I like to tell a story –my songs are all based on life experiences- I do like to keep it real!" she writes.
This week, snow finally arrived in Berlin. The city is quiet and still. This piano improvisation, “Impressions d’hiver” by SoundClouder of the Day Laurent G, captures that feeling well. It’s delicate and lilting, calm and restrained - A beautiful soundtrack to the winter landscape outside the windows.
SoundClouder of the Day Andy The Flute Maker composes incredibly chill and understated songs. They’re relatively minimal - a guitar or two, some synths or keys, and laid back drums. Best to take the simple advice from the title of this song - give it a listen and Just Relax.
Japanese SoundClouder of the Day Yuji Takezawa brings a deep and melancholy groove with his track A Distorted View. Pianos and synths overlap above a heavy rhythm track. A mellotron like line weaves in and out. It’s a gorgeous song likely to leave you decidedly more relaxed than before you listened.
Many of you have experienced inconvenient blips and downtime lately. We’re very sorry about this, and we wanted to take a moment to clear up questions about what happened: three different, unrelated incidents.
From January 6th to 11th, we experienced slowdowns across all of our platforms, and on Saturday, January 11th, the site was in various states of stability for a considerable amount of time. During these days, our team of engineers were working to resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Thorough investigation revealed that our database that runs logins for all services wasn’t using all its available capacity due to a recent change. This resulted in an overload of the main system. Once we found this out, we resolved it immediately, restoring our capacity scaling. We don’t expect any more issues related to this to pop up.
On Tuesday, January 14th, we experienced issues loading the site due to an abnormal spike of inbound traffic for an extended period of time. Once our systems alerted engineers of the situation, we worked hard to mitigate this traffic to restore SoundCloud services for everyone, which we were able to do within two hours of the abnormal spike. This occurred again on Wednesday, January 15th, and we were able to mitigate the situation quickly to restore services.
Thursday, January 16th, the systems that process communication between our backend machines encountered issues during an upgrade. We tried to revert the upgrade to get back to a stable condition, but this caused further issues, which extended the outage. We’re looking into why the upgrade caused these problems and we’re doing everything we can to prevent an upgrade from causing issues again in the future.
Again, we apologize for letting anyone down in the last week or so, and we’re continuing to monitor performance 24/7 and working to maintain — and improve — services for everyone in the community. We really appreciate your patience, words of encouragement, and support!
New Zealand based SoundClouder of the Day Raymond Hayter’s track Surfing The Solar Wind is a pulsing cosmic pop song that owes some of its feel to the 80s. The synthesized vocals were laboriously cut and edited to sound like a robot voice singing in real time.
