#FreePlayThursday – 8/22/2013
We’re back from The DJ Expo, and we’ve got a smattering of free dance tracks just for you! Grab your fix of deep house, nu-disco, trap, and beyond from our 7 picks for this week’s #FreePlayThursday.
One of the standouts of this week comes from D-Bass’s remix of the Whitney Houston classic “I Will Always Love You.” The remix showcases a 90s house flair and fully embraces the overwrought nature of the track, even slicing in the full chorus of the original mix. Viceroy reinforces his motto of “Summertime all the time” with “Sunny Daze,” a breezy nu-disco gem packed with an infectious vocal take and flashes of funk guitars.
AMTRAC dropped a deep house-infused stormer this week. On “Walkin’,” soulful vocals and assorted blips nestle between glittery synths and a thumping bass line to craft an entrancing groove. Live City’s remix of Delta Rae’s “Bottom of the River” is a nocturnal electro house bomb that is packed with a punching drop and relentless bass.
Bassheads can look no further than Manic Focus’s remix of Disclosure’s “Latch” and ƱZ’s original “Trap Shit V14.” Manic Focus takes “Latch” into a much heavier direction, with subtle Drum & Bass elements that build and transform into a crashing dubstep drop complete with a heavy dose of wobble and stuttering vocals. ƱZ delivers the trap goods with “Trap Shit V14.” The title is a fitting description of the track, as it throws a palate of high hats, pitched vocals, and dirty bass at listeners.
For DJs and producers out there, Martin Solveig has released the acapella of his track “Hey Now,” a collaboration with The Cataracs and Kyle, to celebrate the release of the remix bundle for the track. For those looking to flex their remix muscles or create some new mash-ups, make sure to nab this while it’s available.
