Cyril Hahn is a Deep House producer born & raised in Bern, Switzerland now living in Vancouver, Canada. Cyril was in Seattle this past weekend for the Cities renown Decibel Festival
, selling out his show and make some serious waves. I got a ton of feedback from friends who attended the event and felt compelled to share some of the best tracks I could find from his Soundcloud page
Touch My Body
The first track, Perfect Form, is his most recent released that just came out a few months ago, but there are some real gems in this post that you've probably never heard. More specifically, his unbelievable remix of Mariah Carey's Touch My Body,
which I've included towards the bottom of the post.
Is Soundcloud The last Real Indicator of True Talent?
Cyril is another one of those weird Soundcloud enigma's that I'm starting to run into more and more. A virtually unknown producer to the collective American mainstream media and fans, yet he has 140k Soundcloud followers. Is Soundcloud the truest indicator of a Producers skill and following? Since it's not really viewed as a "social media" network by marketer's and there hasn't been an upsurge of services that offer the ability for a business owner to purchase followers, it might just be the last real indicator of true popularity. The flip side to this is that many artists might not even be on Soundcloud, or they aren't focusing enough time on building their Soundcloud audience. As it's popularity and adoption rate continues to grow, time will tell if Soundcloud really is the best indicator of an artists popularity. I'll continue to dig a little deeper into this idea and pull out some good facts/details for you in a new post later this week that will compare Soundcloud followings and popularity with Facebook/Twitter stats. But in the meantime...Enjoy these amazing tracks!
