CloudSourcing: Kissy Sell Out's Top 5 SoundCloud Artists
Several times a day we find ourselves on SoundCloud, which rightly bills itself as the world's largest community of sound creators. The Berlin-based site is a cornucopia of music, a place where artists from all over the world upload songs and share their creations. From globally known artists to bedroom producers, SoundCloud is a hotbed of talent with almost too much new music to discover.
In our new "CloudSourcing" column a tastemaker will shine the spotlight on five up-and-comers on the site that you need to know about. Guest editor Kissy Sell Out gets the party started right with his recommendations.
Kissy Sell Out's Top 5 SoundCloud Artists
Dead cool moombahton tracks have been flying my way from these guys and I'm trying to get them involved in a couple of San City High projects as a result. (Check out Stereothieves' SP DJ mix here.)

Shows what I love most about SoundCloud, as I just stumbled across this guy randomly and the tracks are all heavy hitters!
My favorite Canadian producers are still thinking outside the box and smashing up track after track with their fresh ideas.
Trumpdisco is a very talented and exciting young producer from Australia making consistently edgy electro-bass tracks at the moment. I recently got him into the San City High studio to do a remix for my new EP with American super-producers MIDI Mafia — keep an eye out for this guy!
Very talented and enthusiastic young Australian producer. He tours with a live band and kinda has a young Pendulum thing going on.
