Mixcloud really keeps surprising us! Last month we were awarded 4th Cloudcaster of 2010 and now we’ve been asked to be their funk and soul ambassador! You bet we’re in!
For those of you who don’t know about Laid Back let’s say we’re a content production powerhouse and worldwide community gatherer, focussing on everything urban related. Be it music, art, lifestyle or whatever topic we feel like to discuss. Music wise, we like everything from Soul, Funk, Jazz, Psych Rock, Disco and Latin music to Hip Hop and much more.
We are also running the LBDK online radio station playing the best in urban music from the last 40 years 24hrs a day 7 days a week. Check out our latest project – a compilation album representing some 20 artists we’ve worked with since 2002.
As ambassadors we’ll be helping to select the best Soul and Funk Cloudcasters on Mixcloud, to be featured in the Funk / Soul category page.
Here’s a few of our favourite Cloudcasters:
Mr. Critical is one of Belgiums most tallented Hip Hop/Funk dj’s. Check out the mix he did for LDBK here –
DJ TomE is a DJ on 057 Radio (Zadar – Croatia) and the host of “Sound 360” show on LDBK radio. Vlada Stojanovic is a great DJ from Serbia and used to be a selector for LDBK. They just dropped a new LDBK mix together; a Serb and a Croat working together for the love of music. Nice innit!?
Big up to Gail Smith and FleaMarketFunk for being featured in our favourite category and for putting out such great cloudcasts. Make sure you follow them on Mixcloud!
And last but not least, thank you Mixcloud for making us an Ambassador and for this great platform!
