As always we’ve sent out the bot to scour the interweb for the finest in free and legal downloads to shake your speakers. Or headphones if they aren’t them crap free ones.
First up is a young producer from Hungary, goes by the name of LeAp. A few free tracks there on his Soundcloud but it was ‘Main Stream’ that caught the bots ear chip. A deep electronic track with a sweet vocal and the bass ripples under the tight percussion while the beat switches throughout.
One again the FatKid delivers. Made available through the website which has become an important source for bass music fans everywhere. Big fans of Ghost Note and the Kiwi superproducer returns with yet another free EP. 4 tracks in there with ‘Transmission’ making the Robot Bodypop show set list this week but it wasn’t an easy selection as the other 3 tracks are just as lush. Smooth builds and deep drops a plenty as Ghost Note further finely tunes his sound.
1nejack features 2 freebies in his set this week, the first of which is an evocative garage piece from remixer and fully competent track smasher Enigma Dubz, titled ‘We At War’ sampling Kanye West‘s ‘Jesus Walks’. It’s a great track – well worth the click for the 320.
Lastly we have an off key grime riddim from Whyrez. This one has a bit of a old school Humphrey Bogart detective theme to it. Think 1940′s 12HP Rover saloons with trenchcoated hoodlums toting tommy guns hanging off the wings, shouting ‘oi blad!!’ to passers by. Or just listen, like, download and share.
Just a couple of free cuts from me this week – First up is Riddlez with some persisently head rocking dubstep. ’4, 3, 2, 1 Let’s Go’ jars you to the bone and I love it. But wait, it was only free for a limited time and he took it off his page already!! You’ll just have to listen to the show to see what you missed. Hey ho, I’m sure it will pop up again sometime – In the meantime here is a 72MB folder full of his other free dubs. Dang!
And just this week the legends that are C.R.S.T. have opened up their 2010 Futurestep EP for download free on soundcloud, seeing as you can no longer buy it anywhere. That’s nice that.
And it what seems to be a growing trend, Mancunian producers Biome are also having a clear out. This track Specimen was made in 2010 and never saw a release, so with it sitting around on his hard drive possibly not doing a whole lot why not unleash the forgotten beast for free? The tune falls quite comfortably into the ‘hench’ category. Grab it.
Next up Ghostek offers up this haunting 2-step number ‘Trust Me’ as a farewell bid to this sound that he’s made his own over the last few years. Looking forward to seeing what he’s going to come up with next.
Finally we have Mancunian supergroup North Base with a killer remix of the No Lay track ‘Drugs’ featuring Ms Dynamite. Hopefully you’ll be lucky to catch these guys live bring a 140bpm stomping set.
