SoundCloud Surfing: The Birmingham Edition

brmingingign SoundCloud Surfing: The Birmingham Edition

SoundCloud Surfing is a weekly feature that is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of focusing on the brand new music, we dig into the SoundCloud archives and pull out some gems. This week’s theme is artists from Birmingham. Enjoy.


Swim Deep’s breakout hit is a feel-good, summertime song with a massive chorus.

 


These pulsating, spacey sounds from Arthur Lang will take you to another dimension.

 


Troumaca’s tropical-tinged sounds will transport you to a Caribbean beach.

 


Flying the flag for Birmingham producers, Preditah made his name with gritty grime beats but has been putting out glistening garage recently.

 


Peace’s debut album is packed with both angular, spiky riffs (“Wraith”) and warm, Beach Boys-esque melodies (“California Daze”).

 


The Streets. Legendary business. If you’ve ever been fucked up in a crowded club, you’ll understand this tune.

 


BONUS: Gucci Mane is originally from Birmingham too. Birmingham, Alabama. #FREEGUCCI

    I dig this feature a lot. I really think you should keep it regional though. Obviously soundcloud makes it possibly to upload music from anywhere and have a modest audience even if it’s your 10 homies from bumfuck nowhere. I think yall have a unique opportunity to really put these local artists and local scenes on and get people even more hyped about playing in and for their cities by giving them a wider exposure. I think it’s easy for internet based musicians to lose a local identity so this feature could really help build some home town pride. In the process you’re bound to find some good tunes hiding. Just my 2 cents.

    Cheers

    Gucci song younger on this song w/ Chief Keef. Idk if that’s just me or what but he sound like he has more energy.
