February’s Best: Soundcloud submissions *McWorm, NovA, Slusive

March 4th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix, Rock, Soundcloud's Best |

This post is the best submissions we got in the month of February. I already got a few good submissions from March and before I forget, it’s time to give my top 3 February soundcloud submissions a shout out.

First is McWorm aka Cisco Robinson who has the most interesting story. In 2007 he was working for Barack Obama and got a job in the White House when Obama got elected President. Becoming one of the youngest White House employees at age 22, he wanted to pursue one of his other dreams. Two years later at 24, he decided he wanted to pursue a music career.

Below is my favorite original track from Cisco Robinson’s band, The McWorms, called “Keep The Peace”. It’s got some Obama speech samples which is cool and overall has an chill alternative rock feel with a side order of hip-hop. Want more McWorm, follow him on facebook.

NovA is a Philadelphia based hip-hop artist. He released his debut album, “The New Black” in early February and his manager sent me his single, “All My Love”. I really like the laid back instrumentals, the rapping stands out and is solid. Like NovA, follow him on facebook.

Slusive sent us the best remix submission we have ever gotten on soundcloud. The London-based artist adds some nice beats to “Coming Home” by Diddy Dirty Money turning it into more of a dance track. Check out more Slusive music on soundcloud

Friendship Friends – Flash Mob

November 7th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Friendship Friends have a new song they dropped. It kind of sounds like a more hip-hop 3OH!3. Here’s some stuff about Friendship Friends:

We’re just some college kids from Texas State University, just south of Austin. We just hang out and make music in our free time. “Friendship Friends” was originally the name of our first song but we ended up making it our band name. Our music is pretty much “indie rap” or something like that. We’re way more influenced by indie music, such as Matt & Kim, than anything else. We like music that makes us happy. We’re currently just working on songs as we think of them and planning to come out with an EP before Christmas.

Here’s “Flash Mob”.

Introducing Friendship Friends

These guys sent me a track recently called “HOTFIREEEE”. I was skeptical because of the title, but after hearing the song, it’s better than I expected.
Friendship Friends have some really great beats/instrumentals, the rapping is raw, but with time this group is only going to get better. Listen and download “HOTFIREEEE” and “Summa Cum Laude”.

I look forward to more from the Austin, Texas-based hip-hop group. Check them out on facebook. Enjoy!
