in the modern age of whatever the fuck ‘the underground’ is, YouTube still holds far more bearing over Soundcloud by default. the people who suck at finding music use YouTube, as do the cheapskates who stream full albums versus purchasing (or steal music from video to mp3 converters), and let’s not even get into people who “can’t figure out” Soundcloud whatever the hell that means. but YouTube is here to stay and this ‘underground’ thing has fully embraced it through the rise of channels such as TrillPhonk, Astvri, and the like. but this isn’t about those guys; chances are if you’re reading this you already know more about those channels than i could tell you.
i’m here to talk about this kid sadmoritz
sadmoritz (real name unknown) is a 14 yr old music fan from a small town in Germany that he didn’t give me the name of. he started his channel as a way to share emotionally driven music with others who are into the same thing, but have trouble finding it; providing a one stop location for artists such as Nothing,Nowhere, Lil Peep, Oliver, and more. he doesn’t have subscriber goals or any other aspirations of gaining personally from the channel, he just really loves the music and wants to help others find it – you gotta love him for being so genuine, it’s a rarity in ‘the underground’. in the future moritz wants to host music videos, not really seeing himself as the promoter type. however, he did express some interest in starting record label. he finds a majority of his music just through scrolling Soundcloud and listening to everything on his feed; what’s posted on his channel are the tracks he falls in love with. currently his channel has over 1,300 subscribers and countless songs posted, accompanied by clips from various popular anime series. if your music makes it onto his channel, he’s putting you onto a lot of people without asking anything in return. it’s pure love.
personally, i am in frequent contact with this kid through social media and he’s the genuine article. a true music lover with a passion that drives him to spread music. he owns more merch than anyone i’ve seen. the ultimate fan that every artist wants by their back. give his channel a few views, explore music that you had no clue existed, hit that subscribe button, and look out for label moves from this young Germ in the future. i have a lot of faith in him; you should too..
