A varied selection up for grabs this week but as fresh as always and most importantly, legal. Robot Bodypop is a hotbed for links to free riddims in case you didn’t know. but you do now.
Up first is a chilled number from our very first guest on the Transmit Sessions, Controlled Kaos. It’s some months old now but we’ve never played it and it is a great track, so here it is.
We are loving Kusto’s output at the moment. A spate of free tunes is complimented by this latest VIP available via soundcloud. Check it.
And we have something a bit special this week. Ahead of their new single coming out on Moshi Moshi next Friday bass music badmen Hot City have crafted this rerub of Nas’ track ‘The Don’, and it is fresh as a bagel. Pick it up here. Keep your ears pricked for more releases, as these guys are dancefloor kings!
Next it’s Baobinga, Kahn and Rider Shafique with ‘Original’ courtesy of the Red Bull Music Academy. A fresh vocal cut and I’m not sure how long its going to be up for free so bag it while you can.
Lastly, on a more experimental tip is the free EP from Acre with the Be Mine In Outer Space EP.’Deaf Ears/ Swirling Lights’ features on this weeks show because its wicked, frankly.
A very strong free download from this US producer. With Paradise (to be) Regained featured on last weeks Robot Bodypop show, its easier to let the people over at Silenced Music do the talking for this free 4 track EP!
Let’s call this future garage? There’s a piano, syncopated rhythms, beat-skipping kick drums and spaced out vocal samples.
Lunova Labs (USA) made this release purposefully for the Silenced netlabel. It was inspired by a philosophical movement, called transcendentalism, which developed in the 19th century. Among the transcendentalists’ core beliefs was the inherent goodness of both man and nature. Transcendentalists believed that society and its institutions – particularly organized religion and political parties – ultimately corrupted the purity of the individual. They had faith that man is at his best when truly “self-reliant” and independent. Each song is titled off of a piece of work written by some of the leading figures of the movement.
The album breaths spirituality and mystery. I dare you to hit the repeat button. You’ll find yourself back on the moon.
