Freddie Joachim – The Joachim Remixes Vol. 1-4

Here at the Robot Bodypop our ethos has been the focus on future beats leaning more towards the more electronic side of music however we also feel anyone doing anything new with existing music also deserves mentions.
As big Hip-Hop fans we’re loving the work beatsmith Freddie Joachim has produced over the last few years with his fresh and ,dare we say it, more soulful take on some of some of hip-hops finest tracks. To take a look at how this guy works, check him out in his studio

Born in the Philippines, and raised in San Diego, CA, Freddie is a keen listener and collector of hip hop, jazz, and soul music. Starting as most of us do with DJing in 1996 he slowly progressed into recording and production, and musicianship. It’s these remixes that have caught our recent attention despite being available for some time. Tracks in there from Common, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Slum Village, Mothod Man & Redman and even the dark vibes from Mobb Deep is reworked into soulful brilliance

Not too sure how long these remixes will remain available as they are put out there by the man himself here. Full tracklisting below and a direct link to all the tracks can be found hosted here. Get involved.

Project 13 Manchester

Underground music continues to flourish with the passion of either a solo player or collective group. Its this passion that has gained streaming audio/ visual radio station Project 13 recognition and a following in Manchester and beyond. Going out live from the studio (which also doubles as one of the founders bedrooms) every Wednesday, this group pushes the boundaries of the genres they frequent. Branching out into club nights and now also podcasts its unknown in what direction this collective will head next but they are a solid and reliable choice for bass heavy music. Alongside the residents, recent guests have included Thelem, Guy Richards, Hedmuk, Compa, Biome and Pandemik with many of the shows available on the channels archives. Be sure to check these guys out.
