Not For Sale: Red Bull Music Academy Madrid

This compilation actually now dates back to 2011 but the music far exceeds the time is was concepted. And the 2012 compilation isn’t available yet anyway so bag this.
The annual international music event hosted by Red Bull where up and coming producers, singers, arrangers, DJs and musicians get an opportunity to learn from top industry professionals has been throwing up surprise results year after year.
Incredibly, the compilations are put together and the event in Madrid last years see’s no less than 35 tracks included for free download. In any format I might add for the audiophiles amongst us.
Without going into too much detail theres a rich blend of deep electronica but theres still the core instrument playing musicians there in the fold making this an incredibly varied selection.
Absolutely pushed for standout tracks I might be inclined to say Yosi Horikawa & Dorian Concept with the glorious track ‘Red Sound’ & Jorge Caiado & Mathew Jonson with the deep house vibe on ‘Ecovillage’ are the tracks that led me to seek out the full compilation. Get involved.

Free Beats

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.

Just how sick is Bandcamp for freebies? Very.
