Soundcloud Gems: Chill Playlist
The internet is an endless vortex that can easily suck you in, and before you know it, it’s 2 am and you’re looking at D.I.Y. videos on YouTube with no actual intentions of going through with any of the projects. It was one of those nights when I decided I needed to step up my music game. Within the endless internet vortex, I went to an endless channel filled with amazing, independent music- Soundcloud.
I don’t remember exactly how I came across these sounds but I knew I just had to share. I created a “Chill” playlist, which I thought accurately described all the songs I found. A lot of the songs are slow in tempo and have calm and soothing vocals that accompany even smoother instrumentals.
There are various artists in the playlist- many independent artists, with the exception of one song from rapper Childish Gambino. The first song is a compilation of many songs from artist SPZRKT. Some of the songs in that compilation (and my favorites) are “Can’t Wait,” “Blind Man,” and “Hipster Girl ft. Sango.”
I’ve been listening to this playlist while I do homework, walk around campus, and just relax around the house. I hope that some of you enjoy it and maybe find a favorite song or two.
