Keep returning to Chet Faker’s work, especially after seeing them live at Melt Festival. So talented and refreshing. Really impressed how their label Future Classic has been ramping up over the years. I remember discovering them (and speaking to Nathan) early after joining SoundCloud 5+ years ago.
British lad Luke Leighfield is the second former SoundCloud employee who went on to be a full-time musician (the first was Ian Hooper of Mighty Oaks). Luke raised money on Kickstarter to go produce his second album with his dream producer Jim Wirt.
This is the first song he’s sharing from that album. If you’re into Ben Folds or Something Corporate, Luke would be their love child.
We had the entire SoundCloud board with us today and ended the day with an All Hands where they all spoke topped by an open Q&A session with: Mary Meeker, Mike Volpi, Christophe Maire, @fredwilson and Somesh Dash. (at SoundCloud HQ)
