#FreePlayFriday – 10/4/2013
The weekend is finally here! Celebrate the end of your responsibilities for the week with our picks of the best free downloads. Whether you’re looking for the latest in bounce music or the biggest of big room house, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re still transitioning back into the real world after TomorrowWorld or Beyond Wonderland last weekend, Angger Dimas and Swick are offering up two huge tracks that are perfect for any festival’s mainstage. Anger Dimas’ “Jump Floor,” a bonus track off his debut album Angger Management, is a festival-ready bomb with a percussion-heavy drop reminiscent of Martin Garrix’s “Animals” and Knife Party’s “LRAD.” Swick’s remix of Savage Skulls & Douster’s “TRT” delivers a tribal-influenced take on big room house.
With twerking having reached critical mass in pop culture, there’s no better time for two free bounce tracks! First up are Zeds Dead, who team up with Major Lazer and Elephant Man for “Turn Around,” a reggaeton-infused track heavy with sub-bass and synth squeals. Similarly, Victor Niglio invites you to get “Jiggy” on his new track with Mr. Man. Vocal repetitions and high hats pair with didgeridoo samples to create an entrancing bounce anthem.
We recently chatted with Little Boots, who just released a remix of “Cabaret,” originally recorded by Brooklyn-based disco band Escort. The remix recalls the best of contemporary disco with its string section and Boots’ addition of her signature space-synths. Reminiscent of Audien’s “Iris,” Triad Dragons drop “Over The Rainbow,” a soaring progressive house anthem complete with melodic female vocals and anthemic synths.
Listen and download all of the tracks through our Soundcloud below. If you find any outstanding free tracks, remixes, bootlegs, or mashups, tweet them to @DJTimesMag using #FreePlayFriday. We’ll feature our favorites in future editions!
