Distinction : /mikst#1/ : FREE DOWNLOAD

About a month ago we featured a huge sounding Usher remix  from London based Producer/DJ Distinction. He also recently smashed the main room of the legendary Fabric club at the Dub Police night there at the end of August. It was that set that inspired  the first instalment in a new series of mixes.

/mikst#1/ is what DJing is all about, or should be. We are treated to a wealth of bass exploring early Dubstep stylings, Hip Hop, Grime and Trap beats perfectly melded together in an interesting and varied set, featuring a wide selection of artists from all corners such as Baauer, XXYYXX, Girl Unit, TNGHT, Redlight, Darq E Freaker, Matty G, and Diplo on the playlist.

There’s more to come from Distinction in the near future too:

Having started to experiment outside the confines of any particular genre, Distinction’s recent releases have sided more towards the influence of R&B music on his production, having released his massive ‘Swim Good’ and ‘Climax’ Refix’s, which have received support online from sites like Hypetrak, StupidDOPE and SB.TV amongst others. The tracks have caused quite a stir online & are set to appear on his highly anticipated RVST mixtape, which is to be released in the near future.

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
