PK’s Picks #2 – SoundCloud SpotLight !

Hey everyone, it’s your boy PKSkyler back again with another edition of PK’s Picks – a semi regular feature where I sift through a ton of submitted and underground/outsider music to try to find out what YOU need to be peeping!! This week we’ll be doing a bit of a smorgasboard of SoundCloud artists in particular, so let’s dive right in!

DEXTRO by Yung Psyche ( prod. Emune ) Yung Psyche

Very catchy and smooth trap influenced cloud rap-ish song. I probably listened to this song like 10 times this week lol. From the artwork, you might think is some death metal song or some kind of edgy rap song but in reality you’ve got a classic here. Yung Psyche has some chilled out bars and an infectious hook. His bored, zoned out rapping style compliments the retro 80s anime feel of the sample the beat uses as well. My one gripe would be that the song is a tiny bit too short and I bet Yung Psyche has more rap bars and more energy saved up for us for use in another song. Shout outs to Emune and Yung Psyche for making a really nice low key song tho.  definitely would recommend a listen and a download and keeping these guys on your radar.
Final Score : 8/10
Listen to DEXTRO by Yung Psyche ( prod. Emune )

 

“JOHNCENA ( prod. SBOY)” by Max Wells johncena

Warning, fire inbound~ Max is an MC from Austin, Texas with a mission. This beat is super into that chill trap wave but there’s a great energy being brought to the table. However to be honest there was something about the way the track was mixed and mastered, it has a sort of artificial or robotic tinge to Max’s voice and his bars are already on fire, he doesn’t really need that extra stuff, also his ad libs were a little goofy for me. Coulda did without the “cannot see me john cena” mumbling at the end. All in all though definitely a nice track and am looking forward to the next banger.
Final Score- 7/10
Listen to Max Wells’ song JOHNCENA 

“Falling  Leaves” by NISH (KUMO VILLAGE) nish

Nish seems to be a producer from Stow, United states with his own knack for chilled out beats. This song “Falling Leaves” perfectly encapsulates a relaxing feeling into a nice 2 mins of smooth hip hop bliss. This song definitely gave me some Nujabes vibes and him being a super big influence of mine I definitely gravitate to the feeling this song emotes. It’s like you could relax by a river under the shade of the tree all day, without a care in the world. Also digging the somewhat lo fi sound here, gives off a nostalgic feel. Since it’s just an instrumental and it is simple i cant say it’s the best song I’ve ever heard but hey NISH, you’re now on my radar!
Final Score- 8/10
Listen to “Falling Leaves” by NISH ( KUMO VILLAGE)

“Trip ft Space Dolphin (Prod. TOO RAW)” by Johnny Gee johnny-gee

So first time I’m ever hearing any of these guys, forgive me if I mix up who is who. Thing that sticks out the most to me is this amazing instrumental (good shit TOO RAW) and a bit of a funny/upbeat energy and lyrics. I mean to be honest I couldn’t help but smile and laugh with some of the lyrics/adlibs/delivery. I’m not sure if it’s exactly my style but I do see it being a good party song. You can tell these guys don’t give a fuck bout bitches and they got the drugs and guap like that lol…Some of the lines and shit are just too funny for me “by my lonely you don’t know me so just give me face,” “different strains like candy stores, xans ate like candy bars” lol.  Highlights of the song would be the beat- just the way it’s so light, chimey and wavey in the background, the mixing and mastering there was done well- and I liked the verses more than the hook really. Rapping in a charismatic way like that is nice.
Final Score – 7/10 
Listen to “Trip ft Space dolphin (PROD. TOO RAW) by Johnny Gee
“Breathing Underwater” by Hiatus Kaiyote hiatus

I have never heard a song by this band until this one and WOW am I pleasantly surprised!! The lead singer of Hiatus Kaiyote, “napalm,” has such a great tone to her voice it accompanies this song perfect. You are gently serenaded by her voice, some light guitar and bubble sounds, until a big explosion of emotion into this sort of jazz fusion style where the guitar becomes played in a more upbeat fashion and even some synths start to make their way into the amalgamation. Midway through the song, if you’re accurately following the gentle waves of highs and lows Hiatus Kaiyote are expressing and if you aren’t getting that feeling of literally floating through the water and breathing it in, I guess it’s just not your style. Some people could say the song could end earlier however I enjoy them drawing it out a bit more for more of a reprise ending. This is some soulful stuff and I’m very interested to hear more!
Final Score 9/10
Listen to Breathing Underwater by Hiatus Koyote

” 🌑 New Royal Moon ( // . swirl) ” by JDez 力 jdez

Jdez is an underground hip hop artist and producer whos trying to push his own rap. This beat is super relaxing and reflective, perfect for the types of lines Jdez is saying. The entire song seems to be an expression of self and search for meaning. I do have to come down on Jdez a bit- there’s nothing with rapping slowly and i dig most of the bars/your flow, but i do gotta say there was a couple of parts of the songs didn’t flow exactly quite right, like trying to cram too much into one bar. I’m similar in my rapping style at times, it can be hard to discern what was a genuine mess up and which was done on purpose, but to strive for that perfection is a good goal.
Final Score 7/10
Listen to New Royal Moon by Jdez

PKSkylerinternationalhustle.PNG
I’m Skyler Nelson, AKA PKSkyler, an experimental hip hop artist based in San Diego, CA. I’ve been into music since I was a child, seriously addicted to all kinds, but I’ve just started MAKING music seriously this year. I’ve made music before, but never thought to try and really go for it until this year. I’ve got a huge varriety of influences, so many so that there’s too many to list.
alt_art.jpg
One of my more popular songs is “Always Asleep.” The song basically is about how we wish to escape this world through things such as sleep, meditation, and perhaps otherwordly or unsavory means, and how life affects us, and how we must perserve (but its still just a chilled out rap song.). Listen to the single here

My main album is Life Of Skyler. I can’t review my own album but here it is.  Life Of Skyler I would love all of your feedback on my work!

A LONELY MORNING

A Lonely Morning Is a very Awesome song that has a Smooth vibe to it and a nice synth melody that is Paired with some auto tone soaked vocals.

I really Enjoy Shallow Vera and the production that is put into his tracks. The beat production for his songs are always on point and I really enjoy the slight trap influences that can be heard in this song. This song Features ft. YungJZAisDead And is produced by  [prod. void]

There is a  nice R an b type feel to this track And it  has that new school ethereal  TRILL Flavor.

The Vocals In A Lonely Morning Are very well done I feel. The auto tune is not Annoying and to out of pitch or range. The auto tune suits this song perfectly!. Shallow Vera lyrics are always deep and straight from the heart and that is something I thoroughly enjoy about him. I hope he never changes this and continues to grow as a Artist and becomes better.

The overall beat for this song consist of the new school ethereal type trap feel that is greeted by spaced out synths and reverb – ed hi hats. I Really enjoy the composition of the beat the levels sound perfect and It never feels like the instruments are battling in the mix .

If I was you and had some spare time I would Look into Shallow vera

Swed Mercury And the Mass Mind Mob

Swed Mercury is deft an Artist on the come up you need to check out

I have been listening to this artist and his collective  alot and I have to say I love them and the style of music they create is awesome. If you are into Cloud Rap, Vapor rap or anything laid back and spacey I am Sure Swed Mercury can fix you up

Swed Mercury and the Mass Mind Mob have very quick production styles with about 4 tapes droped with in the last 3 monthes  all ranging between 4 to 5 songs each with production from #TeamSesh Members Cat Soup and Drew the Architect, As well as many other producers with some self produced tracks as well. I can deft See Mass Mind Mob Making a name for them selves and almost being as big as Team Sesh Or SBE some day.

A few of the Tracks that have caught my attention are remember, B L O O D, And glow

REMEMBER

I Really Enjoy Remember and the story it tells. the Beat is very fresh I really enjoy the atmospheric type piano in it . The chorus to this song is very catchy and the word play is fun. This song really takes me on a trip and at the end of the Day I think all of us want our music to be Remembered.

 

Swed Mercury- B L O O D (Prod. Rain)

 

B l o o d is a very laid back trippy track that has a deep meaning you just have to find it. I really reflect with this song and how it kind of has a message where you gota leave some people behind to get to the place you need to be. The production and execution on this song is absolutely flawless. I really love the mummbly harmonized chorus it is very hypnotizing and dream like .

 

Swed Mercury- Glow (Prod. Doza Emms)

https://soundcloud.com/3mobb/swed-mercury-glow-prod-doza-emms

Glow is possibly one of my favorite songs by Swed The melodic-ness is perfect.

The double time flow on this song is very enjoyable and I really dig Sweds execution on this Track.   I really enjoy the messages That Swed Mercury hides in his songs and the emotions you get from his music are absolutely indescribable.

There has been a slew of Releases lately By so many artist that It is getting hard to stay on top of everything well working 2 jobs, working on music and just the everyday struggles of life.

finnal glitch image for hatred reposition.jpg

 

I have to say that I really Enjoy Hatred And I really like Sn0 Fores† And His Production Style. One of the songs that Have really caught my attention is Air Dash.

Air Dash is a very cloudy type beat that has a sample that i am sure everyone is familiar  with and will make you want to go get out there grab a go kart  and a dozen banana’s and have a good time . ( i was wrong with where i thought the sample came from it comes from sonic i believe )

I really enjoy the melody and over all feeling that I get from listening to  Air Dash .

I get the feeling that this track would be a really good track for a rapper to rap on or a singer to record some vocals on but eh then again those are just my thoughts .

 

I highly suggest you go check out Sn0 Fores† And his project Hatred

Available on Band camp as well as soundcloud

Vaporwave / Cloudrap its everywhere

African cloud rapper green hipster

Im my very Opinion I think Vaporwave / Cloudrap is everywhere. You just have to look for it. I have found cloud rappers from Africa and vaporwave producers from France. Even In my own city I cant help but walk around and think to my self Damn that is W A V E Y.

One of the Artist I would Like to show You guys today is GREEN HIPSTER and his Video Obiwan Kenobi.

GREEN HIPSTER IS A African Cloud rapper and more then likely the only Cloud rapper in his country.

I really Enjoy the Video for Obiwan Kenobi. The Beat is is very catchy and the songs overall visuals are very well done. I really enjoy this video and the feel you get from it, this Video Really helps you get a different point of view from Africa. Alot of other videos that are shot in Africa tend to portray the slums and the poverty issues. The really nice thing about this video is it brings you away from that and gives you an in site on the actual geography of Africa and that what is portrayed of Africa in the media is not true.

I Have alot of Respect for GREEN HIPSTER and would love to see him continuing on and progressing his craft .

MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT GREEN HIPSTER AND HIS VIDEO OBIWAN KENOBI HERE:

 

 

Have You Heard Of Bones ?

Now My Question Is have you Heard of Bones But what I am really getting at is have you heard the (FIFTY GRAND’S DEATHBED REMIX) of BONES – ARTISIAN WATER

Now My Question Is have you Heard of Bones But what I am really getting at is have you heard the (FIFTY GRAND’S DEATHBED REMIX) of BONES – ARTISIAN WATER

This track Is very Dope and has a nice ambient feel to it that also is heavily intertwined with a weird sleepy dream like atmosphere , The automated vocals are beautifully soothing and this Music videos footage is absolutely beautiful, I really love how crisp the video editing is. This video has a Very dream like feel that makes you feel like your sitting on a cloud  .

You should defiantly go and check out the  

(FIFTY GRAND’S DEATHBED REMIX)  BELOW !   

 

OR GO CHECK THE LINK OUT HERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA4T5Nz9piM

 

Another Dope Artist is Breezy Brendo

Breezy has recently been putting in a lot of work grinding, and perfecting his sound. I really enjoy His song Ahigato The melody his voice has over yung Rizla’s laid back beat is absolutely amazing. Breezy is very smart with his word play and has many refrences to japan, mario, and basic life stuggles.

If you are a fan of BONES you should check out Breezy, and peep his song Ahigato and his project Moving On

What Is the Experimental Gateway?

The Experimental Gateway Is An attempt at Trying to connect you the listener/viewer to music and World Topics that We feel you should know about.

This Blog is loosely based around experimental hip hop, Cloud rap, and vapor wave type Music genres. If You are unfamiliar with these genre’s then you should stick around something might catch your ear I promise ;D.

The Experimental Gateway is not just a home for cloud rap and vapor wave we also do enjoy other types of music and plan to be taking submissions in from Artist all around the world no matter the genre, you just have to qualify to our standards ( don’t worry we are not like other blogs ) .

A Email Address Will Be available within the next few weeks for your submissions ( If you are really keen to get your music reviewed and posted before the email address is available please follow me on Twitter and contact me there https://twitter.com/originalNizzy )

If You are still reading this I understand you may be wondering \

“what the hell is cloud rap, and vapor what ”

These are often things said by those who are new to the genre and have not discovered the Glorious delightful sounds of vektroids many alter egos ( Macintosh Plus, New Dreams Ltd, PrismCorp Virtual Enterprises, Laserdisc Visions, 情報デスクVIRTUAL, and dstnt, )

or have not seen the Visuals for Cloud rapper Yung Lean’s Song Hurt  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stgrSjynPKs

 

Now Many have gone on to Say Vaporwave Is Dead and that Cloudrap is Lame but I believe these genre’s are young and still have room to grow and Breath, After all Vapor wave is a Genre that was originally made as a joke, for fun as you could say.

The origins for cloud rap seam to be a bit more lose and not defined As there are many that have helped pioneer the sound and bring it to the masses ( A$AP ROCKY, CLAMS CASINO,  MAIN ATTRAKIONZ  )

So are these genre’s Dead? I don’t think so They have Just started to grow and will continue to grow and evolve until they become something completely new.

There Actually Is A Collective Of Artist that I have gotten into contact that might be the revival of these so called fading genre’s  

For example Here Is A song that got sent over to me today that I am absolutely in love with.The feeling it has is very nostalgic and ethereal. This Beat almost reminds me of that feeling as a child you get when you wake up on Christmas day.
