One of my friends just turned me on to soundcloud the other day and I think it is a cool way for musicians to share their music. If anybody has a soundcloud or another type of original music page that they want to share then post it here. I am interested in hearing the different kinds of music created from the musicians on this website because I feel that there are a lot of creative personalities here. My soundcloud page is listed below in case anybody wants to check it out. I am self taught and just make music for fun. I usually just create short instrumentals using my guitars and keyboard. Let me know what you guys think. I appreciate any feedback.
Here’s my current project: http://soundcloud.com/psychophanth
Various kinds of electronic music, mostly swehouse I guess. 99% custom made from scratch, no stock samples or presets (other than a bagpipe sample I used in one song, which I mangled the shit out of.)
I think my old soundclick page (electronica) might still be around, and maybe my old myspace (just guitar and vocals) as well, not sure as I haven’t used those in several years. I think I have some crude recordings of my psychedelic rock band laying around too.
I’ll do some digging.
So I’ve been a lurker on the site for a while now but this seems like the perfect discussion to come out of the lurker closet! I’m in a progressive metal band called The Engineered. Its a lot of tapping and jazz chords with some heavy elements thrown in, with the occasional “Explosions in the Sky” ambient part.

damn I can definitely vibe with everybody’s music. What program and equipment do you guys use to make your songs? I’m pretty new to recording stuff so i’m still trying to figure it out. I currently use a program i found on google called “Cool Edit Pro” and a little $15 usb microphone that i found at best buy…And @jakesimmste your band description sounds like you guys would have a rad sound, but your link doesn’t work on my computer.
@jeransoccer8, Audacity is a good choice, which is up for download on the internet for free! It’s pretty basic but it gets the job done! I’ve also been using an old Fostex eight track for recording and basic overdubs. you can find some pretty cheap ones on craigslist! If you wish to work with loops in the future, Sony Acid and Ableton Live are also great alternatives (:
I play in an acoustic/folk band called Free The Bunch. You can check us out here:
Great idea starting this thread! I’m always looking for new music on Soundcloud. Good to see so many from HE use it too. Enjoy!
I have one set online that I have made a couple of months back (techhouse/minimal). I do not produce my own music (yet), but I mix as a DJ, playing on gigs etc.
I follow electronic music, mostly: techno, techhouse, deephouse, minimal, chillhouse and the like.

My music is a mixture of many genres. Trip-hop, electronic, dubsteppy, soundtracky, lol it’s all over the place. I call it Nu-hop.
Ska – Rock – Prog
I manage a seriously crazy talented bunch in South Africa.
Excuse the quality, it’s mostly live stuff…
Recording is crazy expensive – we’ve finally saved up enough for a studio album, we’re fortunate enough to have a local award winning engineer helping us out.
They seem to appeal to musicians, not so much regular folk :/
Since it’s the end of the world as we know it, I decided to go balls out & do something I have never done before: RECORD MY SINGING VOICE.
I haven’t sung in front of people for almost 7 years, & most of my people don’t know I’m a musician. I’ve never recorded my singing before.
Very anxious about putting myself out there like this, but fuck it, it’s time for a new era.
