SoundCloud is considered by many the go-to platform for sharing music independently, and connecting with fellow artists and fans. Its direct, artist-centric approach has enabled bedroom artists to find fanbases all over the world, as well as leverage their growth on the platform into years-long careers.
This series' aim is to showcase the best new music we discover on SoundCloud, music that oftentimes can’t be found anywhere else. In addition, we shine the light on successful artists that are either now breaking through on the platform or have used it to attract an active following in the past.
