#FreePlayFriday – 5/9/2014
It’s Friday, so it’s time to your fix of the week’s best free downloads! This week’s picks will get you moving and grooving from the beginning of the night through bedtime.
We premiered their album The Drugs Are In Control back in March, but Designer Drugs are already back on the grind with “Strange Misery,” a free collaboration with Skitsnygg. Originally conceived back in 2010, the track has been fitted with a contemporary revitalization with elements of Designer Drugs’ crushing electro being matched with washed-out vocals and rock.
Wongo’s remix of Beyonce’s hypersexual limo anthem “Partition” had us bouncing back in January, and the Australian producer’s sub-heavy take on Major Lazer & Pharrell’s “Aerosol Can” has us dancing all over again. This one’s still heavy on significant vocal cuts and screws, but the bubble synths and wood percussion hits are simply irresistible.
Dim Mak Records is offering Yolanda Be Cool’s Booty remix of A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky’s “Shabba.” It’s an interesting take on the track, with a deeper groove that’s simultaneously sexy and entrancing. This track is definitely primed for late nights as the party’s lights dim down.
This week’s picks wrap up with a BT’s “Theme For An Untitled Film,” which truly demonstrates the meaning of the America’s Best DJ 2013 nominee’s phrase Laptop Symphony. Piano keys, choral rises, and ambient synths create a stunning instrumental piece ripe with emotive soundscapes and beautiful composition. Grab the track and the rest of this week’s picks below from our Soundcloud.
