#FreePlayFriday – 12/6/2013
Black Friday has come and gone, but the deals don’t have to end quite yet. We’ve got five free tracks coming your way that will satisfy everyone from bassheads to the underground hipsters.
Brooklyn indie dance duo Chordashian bring this week’s first pick with “Keep On,” a bouncy nu disco gem. With a prominent, 90s house-inspired piano riff making up the backbone of the track, a chipmunk vocal sample brings the track home with an undeniable sense of style of finesse. A Sagittariun’s remix of “Black Strategy” by Teeth of The Sea is a subdued, techy jammer with a pulsing bassline and glitchy synths.
Those looking for some new bootlegs to pad out their decks need to look no further than Cazzette and The Disco Fries’ offerings this week. Cazzette has released a new live bootleg of The Chemical Brothers titled “Block Rockin Beats” to celebrate two-hundred thousand Facebook fans. The track combines the rock-inspired approach of Chemical Brothers with Cazzette’s throbbing aggressive style to create an electro house banger. New York’s The Disco Fries bootleg of Imagine Dragons’ “Demons,” Moguai’s “Can’t Stop,” and Michael Calfan’s “Can’t Stop” is a very successful attempt at turning the rock track into a pulsing big room track with its static-bass and relentless drop.
Drezo has unleashed “Surge,” which is perfect for anyone looking for an unabashed electro bomb. Packed with an aggressive array of kick drums, electric bass blasts, and heavily distorted vocal samples, the track is a relentless assault on the senses.
