#FreePlayFriday – 4/25/2014
The bass is heavy this #FreePlayFriday, which is loaded with four tracks sure to satisfy anyone wanting to give their subwoofer a workout.
Flosstradamus celebrated their favorite holiday on 4/20 this past week by passing the Wake & Bake EP to fans for free. The package is packed with trill vibes and includes their hit “Roll Up” (and its remix from Baauer) and two new tracks: “Smoke 1” and the Flosstradamus remix of Young Thug’s “Stoner.” Get on this one fast, though, as it’s only free through this weekend.
Dillon Francis played two huge shows throughout Coachella’s dual weekend affair, and his remix of Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” was one of the highlights of both. Luckily, he’s unleashed the track to the masses through his Soundcloud, giving everyone a chance to experience its funky moombah-trap bass explosion.
With the second leg of The Glitch Mob’s tour just starting up—and being live blogged by opener Ana Sia—it’s a perfect time for the group to release an updated mix of “West Coast Rocks.” After originally being released in 2008, the track has been reworked to fit amongst the group’s Love Death Immortality tour. The result is an unexpected fusion of crushing dubstep bass womps and 90s hip hop. California Love, indeed.
It’s near impossible to escape the radio dominance of Pharrell’s “Happy” at this point, but New York City’s Sevag has given a reason to put the track on repeat all over again. Like other entries in his Area-201 remix series, Sevag takes the pop hooks of the track and transforms them in ammunition for a hulking dancefloor weapon. With its big room synths and huge build, this track’s one that’s sure to tear the club down. Download the track and the rest of this week’s picks from our Soundcloud below.
