Freebie Roundup

Christmas was good to us fans of quality bass music. Freebies flying out from all manner of Facebook, Soundcloud and Twitter pages.

First up is 3 tracks from TMSV. All 3 are solid and deep tracks:

“I wanted to give away these 3 tunes to say thanks to everyone who’s been supporting me this year.
2011 has been a very good year for me and I hope that 2012 will be even better.

Thank you for listening to my music, spending your hard earned money on my releases, downloading my mixes and coming to see me play…it really means a lot.

Sentinelese and Levitate are two of my earlier 140 bpm tunes, from 2007/2008. Smoke is from 2010.

Thanks and have a great 2012,

Tomas / TMSV”

The Smashment – Mancunian Way & DJ Mark XTC NYE 2011

New Years Eve approaches and hundreds upon thousands of bass-hungry
Mancunians are looking for somewhere to skank their boots off into 2012. They need look no further. This night of positive vibes looks back over 20 years of clubbing history – from Ragga Dancehalls in Jamaica to Acid raves at the Hacienda! 

Unity Radio‘s Sunday regulars the pRp Show will be kicking off proceedings with their Punky Reggae Party at around 10pm, so don’t be late – DJ’s Eezer, Tommy T and Dylan Reed will be bringing positive vibes from early doors with a funky medley of Roots, Ragga, Soul and Hip Hop.

Mancunian Way’s Marlon De Blanco will be hitting up the decks as we move into the midnight hour with back to back Club Classics. Here he is displaying his Old Skool credentials in the Hardcore Uproar music video featuring Trigga & Sushi (he’s the one in the acid face T-Shirt).

1NEJACK comes in later on with an explosive hour of up front 90’s Garage and Drum & Bass sounds. For those who miss the good old days of clubbing, when tunes were tunes, this is going to bring out some great memories. For those who missed out on the 2-step revolution the first time round, here is where you can get your education!!

Then finally from 1am the legendary DJ Mark XTC will be blowing the doors off the mother sucka with a HUGE Old Skool House set as seen at Eurocultured – Expect to hear tunes to excite your inner raver; It’s going to be like 1999 all over again!
