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

Once again the Bot has been endlessly crawling the internets for the best in free and legal music for the listeners and this week unearthed a stack of beats.

First up is this 4 track E.P from our homie and label boss Sub of Syncopathic Recordings. Tirelessly working to promote fresh producers is Subs game and for this release we see Double O, Theory and LXC on production duties alongsie a VIP from the man himself. ‘Come Close’ by Theory features on this weeks Robot Bodypop show because it’s mega. Available on Soundcloud and Sub has also kindly provided links to either MP3 or WAV meaning you can take these beats to the dancefloor as well.

Next up is a mighty 14 track long player from net label Future Grooves and this is compilation Vol.1. This collection sees unheard and unfinished tracks from producers from the UK, Europe, USA and Canada and moves through future garage, dubstep, juke and much more. Published as an attempt to gain these producers more followers and make no mistake about the quality of tracks on here. Several of our favourite producers feature such as Qualmsound with his atmospheric 2-step in ‘The Object’, Crystal Eyes with the deep and rolling vocal tinged ‘Black Magick’ topped off with ‘Stay’ by Henry Krinkle who’s smooth groove and vocals ensured inclusion on this weeks Robot Bodypop show.

A serious amount of talent on display here so be sure to check out the producers other works.

Finally another compilation this time from Mad Decent with Jeffrees Vol. 4. In their own words:

“Just barely 7 months old and we’re already on the 4th volume of Jeffree’s compilations! This one continues the series with a diverse selection of new talent from across the electronic music landscape, beginning with 19 year old Phat Deuce’s “Bubble Di Sistem”, a staple track in Diplo’s live set. Next up is the new J-Wow (of Buraka Som Sistema) project called Branko, featuring Dominique Young Unique and a remix by French producer French Fries. Scotland’s Lockah follows with a penchant for melody in the context of sub-octave bass music that defies any one genre. A series of 4 instrumentals from the mysterious producer UZ comes next. Having first caught our attention when he came out of nowhere with a string of huge trap-inspired beats on his Soundcloud page, UZ is one of the most exciting new producers in this growing scene. DJ Shaun D from the Netherlands rounds out the package with two more banging club tunes that Diplo has been rinsing out for quite some time.”

‘Now You Wanna’ by Lockah features on this weeks Robot Bodypop show so be sure to check out more of his productions

Transmit Sessions Volume 3 | Controlled Kaos

ON THIS WEEKS SHOW:

This weeks transmission originates from way across the atlantic in the suburb of Chesterfield, Virginia deep inside the big ole US of A. Whilst yet to gain widespread recognition Controlled Kaos attention to detail and high workrate marks him out as one to watch in 2012.

Big on the drums and atmosphere, his tight sub weighted productions have featured on numerous free releases as well as the ‘Timelapse’ LP on the Dank N Dirty Dubz label. There’s a brand new 3 track EP in the offing on LU10 this month, and he also has forthcoming releases on Depth Records and Illicit Trade, including the heavy roller above – ‘The Force’The brand new ‘Slug Proof EP’ is out now. 

In addition to that you can catch his regular radio broadcast every wednesday between 1pm and 2pm GMT (6pm-7pm EST in the US) via electrolouis.com

We asked what we thought would be a few routine questions to get to the man behind the music.

What was your first musical purchase?

My first musical purchase was a drum set.

Okay, great. Which is your favourite track in this playist? What does it make you think about? 

My favorite tune in the mix has to be Von D – Your the one, I love the jazzy vibes in it.

We’ve not seen you do many remixes – Is there anything you are keen to have a go at? How do you feel about the whole dubstep remixing trend? 

I am not really big on remixes because I prefer to write my own, remixes are fun to mess around with though. As far as the whole remixing “trend” I think some are good some are bad and some are people just doing it to try to get noticed.

What will be the next big thing?

I have no idea what the next big thing is, I just hope it sounds good haha

Whats the biggest animal you could throw over a crossbar?

What’s a crossbar?

Er.. Sooooo..

Transmit 3, incoming!
