Boka Records – Niveau Zero & Tambour Battant

Boka Records one again making sure they are on the very cusp of whats new with their release ‘Big What’ which features Parisian Niveau Zero on production alongside his fellow countrymen, duo Tambour Battant.
The title track builds with some funked out filter action while some deep vocals guide you in before breaking down into a monster of a tune. Heavy production here from this trio. Perfect dancefloor smasher whilst also being a riddim that makes your head bounce when it comes through your home speakers or headphones.
The flip sees duo Matta on remix duties and they take all the original vibes and break them up into a smooth deep roller. Amazing work from these two once again.

Shouts to Boka for this release. Killing it.

This weeks Robot Bodypop show serves up more freebies than ever. Killian selects cuts from fresh producers Panda and Geode, a double header from Quantum Soul and some jungle vibes from Hi Fidel Cartel. They are stacked in between tracks that move through the vibes with some new beats and some oldies and this is topped off with this weeks Survivor.

1nejack moves in a different direction with some exclusive tracks most notably from Wolf Cub and Silent Dust. Theres some bassweight in there from RDubz, Eggchan and Major Lazor and a couple of grimy numbers from both selectors from Biome and Priceless. The latter featuring Wiley on mic duties.

No guestmix on this weekss selection as we have no space amongst all the beats we’re spinning but expect the Transmit selections to resume soon. Listen, share and enjoy.

Free Beats

An absolute bagful of free tracks this week hand picked by the Bot searching deep to bring you some, well, deep tracks. Dig it.

First up is a track from young producer Panda with a riddim beyond his years. ‘Fate’ crafts deep vibes around a classic movie sample. Love this

Next theres a double header from the mighty Quantum Soul starting with the roots vibes on ‘Karnak’

Before a collaboration with FatKidOnFire sees ‘Reminisce’ get a release and we’re doubly happy as this track could have been lost for eons

Moving on theres Numbernin6 with an awesome track in ‘Four’ which is presented in all its raw glory. Loving this track

Following up these beauties we have Geode with ‘Transfix’ made available by the Deep Heads crew. A lush track. Smooth as you like

Some badman junglist vibes from the Hi Fidel Cartel with ‘How Far’. One to make you skank around the room. Or in your car. You get the idea!

Then we have a deep house remix of the awesome Submotion Orchestra. Opta Block takes control and remixes ‘Blindspot’.

This download made available exclusively by Groovement which you can find here.

 

Wiley was never one for resting on his laurels and judging from the continuous stream of free downloads cropping up on his twitter account that is not about to change any time soon. He also gives plenty of opportunity to young up and coming talent – Priceless is the 16 year old producer behind ‘Crystal Clear’, a massive free download which cropped up on www.grimeforum.com and sb.tv recently.

Priceless has just released the ‘Team Priceless EP’, a selection of 8 Grime flavoured instrumentals (which includes the instrumental from the track above) for MC’s to use as they wish – provided they credit the producer. Grab it here.

 

Thanks to Grant Brydon of sb.tv for putting us on to this next freebie. Another fresh young producer making waves on the London scene is Distinction – And this Usher refix is his most recent in a run of free tracks. Fantastic sounds here – Those who caught him down at Fabric recently will surely not have been disappointed.

 

Free Beats

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. 

Free Tunes

As it was their first birthday recently, fledgling label Squelch & Clap are giving away this bouncy pack of tunes comprising previously released originals and remixes. Featured artists include Tete De Tigre, Arcade, Kidnap Kid and 123MRK. We liked this compilation so much we have featured two of the tunes on this weeks show. Check it out and download the full shebang here.

And yes, we know, it was recently Valentine’s Day (can’t you see we themed the artwork this week accordingly?). So to drown out the sound of the couple next door fighting/going at it like rabbits we have this great 6 track giveaway from Lovesick Recordings.

Home to artists like Riskotheque, MarchMellow & Southbound Hangers, there have been some quality releases from this crew so far and this is set to continue. Download this consistently impressive EP via Surus here.

And we also have a lovelorn freebie from Belgian duo Requake entitled ‘Before Breakfast’. No wishy-washy sentimental bumslush from these two – it’s rather large. Click here for the download link.

Next up is the deep FatKidOnFire x Content collabo ‘Sulfur’. Eyes down for this one

and finally, a free track from Dub Alive Recordings. Bukkha comes with the root vibes in ‘Drift’. Bag it now to avoid disappointment.

Killawatt – The Overflow EP

With releases on mighty labels such as BlackBox, Subway and Wheel & Deal, UK producer Killawatt in conjunction with FatKidOnFire offers up this free EP of 4 dark and moody rollers. ‘Narco’ has a rhythmic tribal feel while ‘A New Direction’ has a more glitchy futuristic vibe. ‘Take A Step Back’ is a deep stepper and its all rounded off nicely with the ambient twist of ‘Slow Motion’. A favorite of the Robot Bodypop, keep your eyes on Killawatt.
