Bandcamp has fast become one of my favourite sources of both new and experimental music. The ‘Pragmatic Theory’ cut is one such download available right now on there. The vibe sees a collective of producers, samplers and beat maestros from around the world getting involvoled purely for the love of music. They take elements from Curtis Mayfield cuts and create whatever beats it inspires.
Its a 25 track release and all of them are available straight from the beatsmiths alike. They are bouncy, they push the stereo limit, they make you turn the bass down and right back up again,
Stream it, download it and listen in. Concept albums are rocking my world at the minute and what better way to get involved than this…..Its packed full of soul.
Yes! The Robot Bodypop show once again. This weeks show does not deviate from the high standard we set ourselves with more killer bass music than you can shake a dub siren at. Delving into some old classics with a cut from Ratpack and brought right up to date with music from Razor Rekta, some roots influenced vibes from Jahtarian Dubbers, the mighty Tallan as well as the odd exclusive, Peaman most notably. As always theres freebies in there to get your grubby little hands on and keep your ears peeled for the competition to win tickets to Cable. This week we’re flying without a guest mix so its just the two of us carrying you through for 2 hours. Enjoy.

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.
