After celebrating its first birthday last week, #FreePlayFriday returns with a brand-new set of five free tracks for your listening pleasure. This installment has a little bit of everything: underground house, French electro, and everything in between.

Disclosure’s collaboration with Sam Smith “Latch” just reached the Top 10 in the US, but the British duo’s album track “When A Fire Starts To Burn” has been given new life with a remix from C2C. While the original mix paired garage influences with a impassioned preacher samples, C2C’s reworks the track into a banging future bass jam. With hip hop-inspired scratching and dripping synths, the mix is simultaneously hard-hitting and relaxing.

Melbourne, Australia DJ/producer Mike Metro’s reinvention of The Fugees’ “Killing Me Softly” preps the track for underground club play. The verses have been heavily distorted and filtered, giving away to a uproarious house drop that fuses bouncing basslines and scattered vocal samples.

Adrian Lux is gearing up for his show at Pacha in New York City tonight, and the Swedish producer/DJ is giving away The Him’s remix of his single “Damaged” for fans. The new mix is a bright and airy take on the track, with lightly reverbed guitar strums and liquid synth lines making for a melodic summer track.

BeatauCue is offering a download of their track “Yenoh” as a summer gift to fans. The French duo showcases its roots with a breezy, beach-ready indie electro synth line and a robotic vocal reminiscent of Daft Punk. Despite the sunny vibe, BeatauCue still shows off their knack for hard-hitting sounds with a grinding bassline throughout.

Boys Noize teams with Chilly Gonzales for the debut single from their Octave Minds side-project. It’s a complete change of pace from the normally-aggressive Boys Noize sound, trading in the electro bass for piano melodies and ambient soundscapes. Fans looking for more of the pair’s dream-pop sound can look forward to their album, due out this September via Boysnoize Records. Grab the track and the rest of this week’s picks from our Soundcloud below.
