The Soundcloud Roundup

If you're a regular on this blog you will most definitely have heard of Soundcould. If not.. well... Soundcloud is an online music hosting service offering artists the opportunity to showcase their works in high quality to a very large and growing community of 'clouders' (yep, coining the phrase). It also allows big name artists to preview works and in turn encourages your average Joe to purchase said works. For me I think Soundcould is possibly the biggest thing to happen to online music sharing since Myspace music as it's music, music, music and that's it. So for this post I surfed around Soundcloud to find awesome music for ya'll to listen to. Some well know and some a little more unknown.

First up is a remix of Pendulums classic 90's hit Coma by Melbournite Bass Kicka. Prepare yourself some seriously solid bass.

This next one by NZ native Dan Aux is an absolute banger...1:30 in shit drops and bowel movments are had.

Tom Piper, Alex Schmitz - Frshcrck 2.0 (Dan Aux's Way Crazies Mix) [Bam Bam Muzik] by Dan Aux

A1 Bassline is no stranger to.. well..basslines. He played in Aus this year and I missed it which was utterly devastating. This track shares some great percussive work and a nice sub bass to bring a jungle-ish vibe that is sure to get the some booties shakin'.

A1 Bassline - Bad Boy Sound (master) by A1 BASSLINE

This next one I stumbled upon whilst on Smidgem regulars Peking Duks Souncloud. There seems to be a large amount of bassline talent coming out of Canberra and Ben Colin is no exception with this great dub version of Justin Timberlakes 'Love Stoned'.

Justin Timberlake - Lovestoned (Soiboi Dub) by Ben Colin

Speaking of the Duk they've put a minimix with a bunch of tracks by the boys and their friends. It includes 'Style' and 'To The Bar' which have been previously posted on Smidgem which you can get here.


I mentioned earlier in the post big name artists posting previews of upcoming tracks to give people a little taste of impending awesomeness. BeatauCue are at the forefront of todays electronic music scene and to put it simply this track is absolutely so amazing that it's my favourite song right now and I've only heard 2 minutes of it...I WILL be purchasing this when it is released.

Master of all things dance Diplo has recently got himself a Soundcloud. This track by M.I.A was a Diplo production to my knowledge and is a quality one at that. Crookers played this at Coachella in 2009 and the crowd (myself included) went ballistic. A party anthem if I've ever heard one.

M I A - XR2 by diplomaddecent

So that's my Soundcloud roundup. I'm considering making this a regular fixture here at Smidgem. So if you like it let me know in the comments...or just send me some serious vibes anyway you can.


Happy Halloween...From Figure

Smidgem regular Figure has just put a little jam up on his Soundcloud for free download. The track was released a while back on his 'Death Of Joshua" EP but he decided to give it away for free for halloween. It definitely has a creepy vibe to it and will compliment a halloween playlist very nicely.

Figure will delete this off his profile after the Halloween weekend so get amongst it fast people.

My bad

I can't believe I missed this. Does It Offend You, Yeah? released a new single for free back in august. They did so as a lead up for their tour supporting Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke's new solo project. This is a great tease of the bands sophomore album 'Don't Say We Didn't Warn You'. The track is fantastic, pretty relaxed start but it smashes into the standard DIOYY synth at about 1min.

Does It Offend You, Yeah? - We Are The Dead

They're also running a remix comp over at their Soundcloud.

Local Love

Here is a taste of some fresh aussie talent that will bring the new era of electro to this amazing country.

First up we have the Bareback Djs. These two pro surfers now base themselves in San Diego, California and have been destroying partys ever since they got there. Be sure to check their blog follow the fish. Love the kookaburra sample they used throughout this track

Bareback Dj's - Mating Call by Bareback djs

Team Wing originated as a joke, a group of people who paid tribute to two things. 1. winging it and 2. the wingman. You can easily 'get the fuck down' to the chunky bassline with this bomb..

Ravel is Patrick Bellamy's solo work. Being a member of Tap Tap the kid definitly knows how to have a good time and can usually be found raving out to intense dance music like Boys Noize, Proxy & Surkin. So naturally he took the next step to producing his own brand of distorted noise..
You can also check out Tap Taps mixtapes here.

Here is the video

Whilst fangin' around Souncloud doing some listening I stumbled across Hostages page and found some really great tracks for you all. Alan has been making a lot of noise of late (pun definitely intended) on the music scene. He mixes is up a bit, using a few different styles and even blending a few. Here's a few tracks for your listening pleasure.

Hostage - Make 'Em Drop by HOSTAGE

Hostage - Requiem by HOSTAGE

Hostage - Versatile Sound by HOSTAGE

And if you missed it Hostage featured a remix on the Figures 'Torture' EP which you can D/L here.

Beat The Weekend.. part 4

Diplo completely reworks Proxy here by adding plenty of acapella's throughout.

This track has an awesome build up. Would be great to drop at anytime through the set.

Djedjotronic lays down some creepy fidget with this one
Ettiene De Crecy - Hope (Djedjotronic Remix)

Dillon delivers the gold with this one. Dubstep madness
Dillon Francis - Take Me High

This would have to be one of my favourite Skream tracks as its a lot darker and heavier than his usual stuff.
Skream - Raw Dogz

Produced by Benga... so you know its gold! This has been getting plenty of play on Triple J, hopefully they can continue by playing more and more dubstep!!


A friend of mine just gave me the heads up on this one. Gotyes new single 'Eyes Wide Open' premiered yesterday on Triple J, and I'm pretty pumped on it. A great little tune for summer.

Gotye - Eyes Wide Open

It's available for free download at if you want to get on his mailing list.
