Soundcloud Diggin Episode 13 (February 21, 2016)

Hello All, today’s installment of Soundcloud Diggin’ is a little shorter than usual, specifically, it’s just one artist shorter than usual but all of the featured artists are incredible. It’s another action packed lesson as we cram you with some artists you need to begin bumping so you can show off to your friends how impeccable you are at finding new talent.

Virginia’s always been the under appreciated hip hop hotbed but over the years, we’ve gotten some of the greatest artists and producers from this area including Pharrell, Timbaland, The Clipse, Missy Elliott and plenty more. Recently, Virginia’s been resurging a bit with artists like D.R.A.M., Sunny & Gabe, Masego among others and to add to that growing list is Virginia Beach producer Rozwell. Above is his pretty straightforward but very dope single “Hennessy” with some vocal helps from West Banks – Trixx

I’ve got to give props where props is due and this Orlando rapper came to my attention through fellow blog Pigeons & Planes. Already, the talent in rapper Kaiydo’s flow is evident and he’s only going to get better with time and practice. This song in particular “Red Freestyle” is particularly hard with it’s booming, trumpet led beat. It rides in the whip nicely and there’s more than just a good vibe to this one, Kaiydo adds plenty of substance through his rhymes, making the song feasible for more than just a ride in the car. – Trixx

After finding his collaboration with Masego not too long ago, I was once again introduced to Alexander Mack with his new single ‘Sharp Dressed’. The energetic track is disgustingly catchy and upbeat that will surely have you moving and bopping around no matter your setting. With a similar topic like ‘Classic Man’, this track will certainly have you feeling better then the previously mentioned breakout single. – malbin

Production duo Two Friends appear to on the path to becoming the next up in the world of dance music, as their Soundcloud and Spotify accounts are booming. Their latest release ‘Two Friends’ featuring this talented singer ktperal. While the production on this track wasn’t my favorite after scrolling their Soundcloud, the vocals on this track make it an absolute listen. Definitely keep an eyes on Two Friends – ’cause if you blink, they might be up there with the likes of Kygo, Matoma, etc.
