#FreePlayFriday – 6/13/2014
It may be Friday the 13th, but you’re in luck today, as we’ve got six shiny new free tracks coming your way! From sultry Italo disco to heart-shaking moobahton, this is a #FreePlayFriday that’s sure to get you moving regardless of what you like.
Right on the heels of Banks’ electrifying performances at New York City’s Governor’s Ball and Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this week, Love Thy Brother has taken the songstress’ single “Drowning” to the dark tropics for their remix. Oceanic soundscapes and an infinitely sexy bassline twirl beneath the singer’s rich vocals for a track that’s equally as groovy as it is emotive.
D-Bass never fails to impress with his innumerable free remixes, and his new edit of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” with Herve Pagez is no exception. Titled “Drunk in Armour,” the mix is stylish, tropical, and undeniably French. Taking elements of jacking house to turn up the energy level, it’s an undeniable summer banger.
Australian DJ/producer Anna Lunoe once again shapeshifts for “Bass Drum Dealer (B.B.D.),” a free release from Skrillex’s free download imprint NEST HQ. A genre-straddling masterpiece, the track sees Lunoe taking elements of tribal, jungle, and future bass for a brilliantly chaotic explosion of rhythm and percussion. It’s no wonder why Skrillex personally signed, mixed, and mastered it after hearing Lunoe premiere it at Coachella this past April.
If you’re hungry for even more bass, Tittsworth’s moombahton shaker “Que Fresca” is sure to please. The reggaeton influence is particularly apparent in this one, with appearances from DJ Blass, Jowell, Polaco, and Maicol. With the track’s bass thick and rowdy, no booty will go unshaken.
Danish born and Los Angeles-based DJ/producer MORTEN kicks off a new free EP release with “Ballet Only.” Despite its progressive house roots, the track steers away from festival euphoria with its dark, minimalistic electro drop. You can grab the track now, with a new track scheduled to be released for free each of the next three weeks.
The Italian-born—and aptly named—ItaloBros have delivered a club-ready remix of Duke Dumont’s 2013 crossover smash “Need U (100%).” The boys keep the hook-filled vocal in place for their mix, instead taking the original’s summery air and readying it for the dead of night with a dark tech house remodel. The prominent 808 drums and synth progression maintain the original track’s noted 90s iconography, however.
