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 has been considered by many artists and fans alike as the best platform for unsigned music to shine. Its direct approach and no need of distributors has enabled bedroom artists to find fan bases all over the world, and emerging talents to turn their SoundCloud game into vibrant careers.
In this series, our aim is to showcase the best new music we discover on the platform - music that oftentimes can’t be found anywhere else. In addition, we shine the light on successful artists that encapsulate everything SoundCloud is about, and have their careers based on it.
