#FreePlayFriday - 2/21/2014
It’s hard to be upset once Friday comes around, and it’s even harder to be upset when it means you’ve got five free tracks coming your way. This week’s set of tracks is sure to fit nicely amongst your weekend playlists, whether it’s for a house party or your next club set.
D-Bass is no stranger to #FreePlayFriday, and with an output of free tracks as strong as his, this should come as no surprise. This time, he’s back with a remix of Sisqo’s classic “Thong Song,” taking the track to the nearest beach disco. Shimmering synths and a sense of euphoria give the mix a French filter house sheen that’s infectiously danceable.
America’s Best DJ 2013 nominee Paper Diamond has joined forces with LOUDPVCK on “Wylin.” Clocking in at just under three minutes, it’s a quick burst of trap that goes hard start-to-finish. The heavy basslines and high-pitched synth stabs are sure to shake any sound system to the very core.
Up-and-coming producer Special Features has taken on Flight Facilities’ “I Didn’t Believe” and has delivered a stunning remix fusing progressive house and indie nu-disco. The British producer’s ultra-melodic aesthetic is equal parts euphoria and pop, with a style reminiscent of Madeon.
Roger Sanchez is offering an unreleased edit of 2 Sides of Soul’s “Leon” for free as a token of appreciation for his 300,000 Facebook fans. Sanchez’s edit is an entrancing house staple, with a sinister bassline and constantly shifting soundscape primed for late-night club play.
Joachim Garraud’s released three free tracks in recent weeks, including a big room remix of John Newman’s “Love Me Again” and a MIDI trap remix of Beyonce’s current smash “Drunk in Love.” “Music Maestro Please” is the highlight of the trio, with an orchestral build that explodes into an electro tanker.
