Welcome to Underground Vibes Of The Week, the place to discover new music. No matter if it's trap, house or ambient, heavy and dark or bright and bouncy - if it's a vibe it belongs here.
SoundCloud is considered by many artists and fans alike to be the best platform for unsigned music to shine. Its direct approach and lack of a need for distributors has enabled bedroom artists to reach fanbases all over the world, and emerging talents to turn their SoundCloud game into yearlong careers.
In this series, our aim is to showcase the best new music we discover on the platform; it's music that often can’t be found anywhere else. We will also shine the light on successful artists that encapsulate everything SoundCloud is about, some of whom have built their careers on the platform.
