We are delighted and very happy that artists, labels, and collectives across the whole world are sending us their new songs, projects, albums, EPs and compilations. We publish them here on the web, or on our SoundCloud, which we see as one of the most interesting communication platform for the world’s underground music scenes. SoundCloud is a perfect crossroads and platform for various subcultures, various genres, and various different styles. Big global EDM tunes, Latin American underground club fusions, various remixes of big hits in a myriad of different styles, obscure subgenres, newest experiments, and explorations of different sounds… it’s just an amazing site to discover rabbit holes of music genres. And it’s a great platform for DJs as well. And it’s fun!
● If you don’t know where to start with SoundCloud, and you like Swine Daily for example, or artists we have featured, try browsing our [Swine Premieres] or Tracks section. We have published more than 180 tracks including 2 of our own Swine World compilations with various artists.

SD: What was the process behind these 2 songs?
oi: The drums are sampled-based.
The bass and keys are software synths.
The vocals are chopped, pitched, and reversed samples of famous pop singers.
The sound design includes ASMR YouTube videos and field recordings from London and Mexico City.
Some of the processing is done through guitar pedals and an analog mixer.
SD: What inspired you to create them?
oi: Love of the music and sounds that make them up.
UK sound system culture, especially dub nights in Leeds (UK) like Subdub.
Time spent working with the experimental music producer Manny Rettinger in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Hearing new music and dancing at Mexico City underground parties with friends.
Walking in my neighborhood, Narvarte, and looking at trees and street signs.

oi: Different emotions at different times. I’ll leave that one to the listener : – )
