Notably, Repost Select is the audio streaming platform’s premium services program for rising independent artists.
Now, here is the list of the tracks and artists that SoundCloud picked for Repost Rewind Vol. IV:
You know that you are on to a winner if the music of Prince and Anderson Paak is brought to mind. Kyle Dion’s track called “That Don’t Mean A Thing” can be described as groovy, slick, and undeniably catchy. In addition, it combines crystal clear and a rare groove with the best pop influences, thus creating an eargasmic effect.
This song boasts itself for its instrumental hip hop mastery from Tokyo. “Rusty Ships” is the perfect example of looping as a form of art. Each jazz loops are wonderfully and tastefully arranged alternately between two phrasings and sounds even more powerful every time they return.
This track serves as the finale of the artist’s quarantine series. The lyrics are the perfect epitome of quarantine dreaming. In addition, the artist’s vocals skip across a bed of glitchy R&B. She turns introspective as she leads the listeners into the goodness of an alt-pop.
These Kids Are Nice, an artist based in Los Angeles, California blesses listeners with his textured and deep two-step through his track called “Landing.” Moreover, the song sounds like it has been pulled out directly from the latest Hyperdub compilation. You will hear percussions skittering across a backdrop of serene synthesizers as he creates a song that is rich and elaborate from a collection of minimalist motifs.
This track reminds listeners of ‘90s R&B in an aesthetic and stylistic way. In addition, the artist’s Latin pop was able to create a niche of its own. In fact, even the SoundCloud Quality Control Team was attracted by Riela’s slick Spanish vocals. It is as if the song simultaneously transports listeners to Latin America and back in time.
HEIGHTS brings listeners a feeling of nostalgia as she dives deep into the memories of a love that is lost. The lyrics are tender and honey and the song itself stirs up a whole lot of emotions. In addition, it provides the perfect soundtrack to people’s post-lockdown reflections.
“Coming Up” by The Bird Watching Society is a mixture of introspective melodies, a driving baseline, as well as lo-fi production. The track is a chill end-of-summer tune that is perfect for the shorter evenings and cooler temperatures.
Caldera, an artist based in Brighton glides in with his oceanic and dub-infused broken beat. “Infinite Beginnings” has incredible details, progression, as well as a more deft musical touch. All of these elements were combined in order to elevate the track into a special realm.
The artist reminds listeners of the cataclysmic, dystopian, and punishing force that techno can give off through this song. In addition, the song is something that is reminiscent of booming basement clubs.
This list has ended with a track that closes Shane McCullough’s– a New Mexico-based artist– latest album. The song is a blend of emotions, as well as style, that siphon into a total of five minutes and 16 seconds. In addition, the song initially ventures out as a melancholy hip-hop shuffler. Yet, the darkness and intensity constantly grow until it is bathed in cinematic redemption.
