#FreePlayFriday – 9/27/2013
We’re switching it up and now bringing you the best of the week’s free downloads every #FreePlayFriday! This week we’ve got nine downloads that range from hardstyle to disco house, with nearly everything in between.
Chromeo kick off #FreePlayFriday with “Over Your Shoulder,” the lead single of the duo’s upcoming album. The track is a slinky disco number complete with the smooth vocals for which Chromeo is known. America’s Best DJ of 2013, Kaskade, offers up a mashup of “How It Is,” a track from his recently released album Atmosphere, with R3hab & Quintino’s staple remix of Tiesto’s “Chasing Summers.”
TJR’s ‘120 BPM Refix’ of Drake’s “Hold On” provides a low-key thumper featuring pitched up vocals matched with ambient reverb, making it perfect for a late night lounge. Atlanta-based Treasure Fingers is giving away his official remix of Katy Perry’s radio smash “Roar.” The mix features chopped and repeated vocal cuts layered over bumping disco house lines.
Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records is offering up GTA’s “Yolohton” for free. The track is a moombahton-inspired groove packed with the heavy electro house bass and synths. The exploration of the funkier sound paired with the duo’s knack for big room bombs is a tour de force of sounds and inspirations. Bare’s trap remix of Carnage & Tony Junior’s “Michael Jordon” is dominated by high hats and a build containing elements of big room synths. Will Sparks delivers a more hardstyle-influenced approach to trap on “Crazy” with its pulsing tempo and synth leads.
Tommie Sunshine’s set from New York’s Pacha showcases his varied taste while still offering up a smattering of some of the best electro house around now. The highlight of the set comes from the seven unreleased exclusives peppered throughout the set, including tracks from Nicky Romero, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Calvin Harris, and more.
