Once again we got a fairly solid mix of tracks submitted to us and below are our five favorites ranging from some hip-hop to some rock. Here’s our best soundcloud submissions for the month of October.

First comes a party mashup from Tievoli who has been featured here a few times with solid party mashups to groove to. This one mixes Dragonette, Martin Solveig and Flo Rida. It’s a fun mashup for a fun night.

Here’s HOVAT‘s latest hip-hop jam with a chill flow and smooth beat.

Next comes a rock song from Face The King. This song has a great pick-me-up feel that just gets better as the song progresses. Reminds me of Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars. This is a band to watch out for!

We don’t post a ton of Lo-Fi as it can get kind of boring and make you sleepy but this is some sweet fun lo-fi that is fairly easy to get into. Inspired And The Sleep are an interesting band and I look forward to more. This song is considered bliss beat lo-fi, loving the flute usage as well! DOWNLOAD

Lastly an unusual hip-hop song form an unusual hip-hop artist. Mastermind has a weird flow, brings this weird circus beat but you know what, it kind of works and is so interesting I dig it and look forward to more from the up-and-coming MC.

Artists send us your tracks to our soundcloud, because I listen to all the submissions and most of the time provide some feedback. The five songs below are my favorite submissions we have gotten in the last month:

First song is by Stevie Grant and it’s called “FLY”. The rapping is so-so, the instrumentals are good but really my favorite part is when the piano comes in with Rihanna’s voice. I was on the fence about posting this but the last minute of the song changed my mind.

Next song is by Chicago MC K. Vincent called “Ain’t A Thing Change” which I like mostly because of the instrumentals and lyrics. Keep an eye out on K. Vincent.

Next we got HOVAT with “Let Them Die” which is a triple remix similar to the latest iSH song, “Let Them“. This has a good party flow to it, the hook by jj is dope and overall HOVAT makes this his own for a good catchy alternative hip-hop song. If you like this song, go download HOVAT’s latest mixtape, Out of Nowhere, which has a lot of non hip-hop samples. I would call HOVAT a poor-man’s Hoodie Allen at this point.

LectroLips are an electro-pop duo that sent us “What We Came For” which has interesting instrumentals and synthed up vocals. If your a fan of electro-pop then take a listen.

Lastly, the Electronic Pop Hop jam, “Ekkies in my pocket” by AlteRego & Baldylox. I hadn’t heard of them before.
