#FreePlayFriday – 6/20/2014
Whether you’re lucky enough to be in Las Vegas this week for Electric Daisy Carnival or not, there’s no wrong time to grab some free music. Grab this week’s #FreePlayFriday picks below.
Nom De Strip kicks off this week’s set of picks with the biting electro of “Grandma.” Nom De Strip’s signature attention to low-end detail is coupled with dark and dingy vibes while rolling drums kick, making for a dancefloor corker primed for both grinding and raging.
MORTEN launched his series of weekly free tracks with “Ballet Only” (featured as part of the last #FreePlayFriday), and he’s back with the second installment “Liquids.” Continuing in the dark progressive house of the previous release, “Liquids” is a tight, laser-focused stage killer. Flirting with elements of pulsing electro, the track recalls Swedish House Mafia’s smash “Greyhound,” while the massive strings and dramatic flair keep it in a league all its own.
Mad Decent’s Elliphant has worked with an all-star cast of producers, including Skrillex and Diplo, in recent months, and now the MC’s single “Revolusion” has received a massive trap rework from ƱZ. With relentless hi-hats, pitch-bending synths, and a huge low-end, the remix is an explosive bass bomb.
NYC duo Live City has taken singer-songwriter Todd Kramer’s song “Redeye” and refitted it with a fresh progressive house makeover. Deeply melodic with piano flourishes and a fluttering percussion drop, the remix perfectly leverages the strength Kramer’s rich vocals for to channel a true sense of euphoria.
Those in need of a new chill-out soundtrack need not look any further than The Eden Project’s remix of Seven Lions and Myon & Shane 54’s crossover single “Strangers.” Described by The Eden Project as “anti-drop,” the remix keeps the lush soundscapes of the original track while taking the energy level down a notch. The end result is a perfect for your early morning arrival home with its reverbed guitar picks and soothing drum patterns.
