Pharrell is on the hunt for emerging artists on SoundCloud to release with his collective ‘i am OTHER’.

SoundCloud have partnered with Pharrell Williams – renowned producer and music maker didn’t ya know – for a fantastic new opportunity for rising and emerging artists. They’re looking for undiscovered creators to be a part of 10 tracks on a brand new, hand-picked-by-Pharrell music compilation.

Pharrell will release the compilation through his creative collective ‘i am OTHER’ on SoundCloud (of course) and all major streaming services in early May. He’s asking creators to submit their uploads which he will personally listen to and choose from.

Pharrell said, in his Instagram announcement: “For our shared passion and vision for music, @i_am_OTHER and I are teaming up with @SoundCloud to discover the next creators. Starting today you can tag #SCxiamOTHER on your SoundCloud track for a chance to be featured on a compilation we’re working on. “

Creators selected to appear on the compilation will be fast-tracked onto SoundCloud’s premium marketing program ‘Repost Select‘ and will gain funding for future project from their $10 million creator accelerator fund.
