Flying solo once again with the new format it’s myself Killian selecting from a mixed bag this week. Deep vibes throughout and even taking a small HipHop excursion with Snakehips, Gummy Soul & Fresh as I’ve recently discovered Bandcamp is an absolute goldmine for concept albums from indie producers.
There some deep dub in there, most notably a free track from Djinn, thats a wicked remix of a Numan track so check for that. Some roots vibes in there too from Egoless and Matta checks in with a remix of French producers Niveau Zero & Tambour Battant. Dark and moody vibes from Kode 9 vs Badwai and to fend of the dark theres glorious tracks from our best kept secret, Londy as well as rising talen Es.Tereo. New D&B vibes from Breaks Symmetry label make this show as varied as it’s ever been. Get keen and listen in.

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.
LDZ aka London Zoo starts off the giveaway this week with beat maestro Sumgii with the Daddy McFree EP. Peep the preview then bag the full thing at Blocsonic. It’s mint.
Next up is the Radio Los Santos free EP from Habstrakt and Badjokes featuring the cut featured on this weeks show remixed by War & Mateba.
Following on, the man Compa gave up this Bjork remix as a thank you for 1000 Twitter followers. Can’t go wrong with the mental Icelander on vocal duties because frankly, she’s awesome. Couple that with Compas midas touch. Love it.
