#FreePlayThursday – 9/12/13
In need of new music for your decks? We’re bringing you the best of free music this week with 7 complimentary downloads, ranging from techno and moombahton to trap and nu-disco.
Julien H Mulder is giving away his Enkel Strukur EP through his Soundcloud. Created entirely with analog equipment, the EP is a techno excursion ripe with thumping bass. “Dold Maskin” is the standout, with its liquid synths and robotic bass. Dim Mak Records is promoting the release of Felix Cartal’s new single “After Dark” by offering the Aire Atlantica remix for free. The mix features the airy vocals of Koko Laroo and vacillates between moments of chaos and melody, featuring drops of both progressive and electro house style.
Grab ill.Gates’ remix of “Warrior Tongue,” which features a dancehall moombahton bassline topped with Masia One’s tight rap flow. If you’re looking for more female MC dance tracks, Kaytranada has remixed “ATM Jam,” Azealia Banks’ collaboration with Pharrell. The remix is a glittering, mellowed-out nu-disco styling of the track, appropriately cutting out a few of the original mix’s chorus repetitions.
Anton & Roman R have reinvented Swedish duo Rebecca & Fiona’s alt-electropop single “Union” into a blaring, marching-band-inspired bass bomb. Their mix keeps the core structure of the track intact while infusing the drop with elements of hardstyle. If you’re looking for something in a more traditional bass sense, NYMZ have turned Chris Lake, Steve Aoki, and TJR’s current Beatport No.1 into a quintessential trap banger.
Bais Haus & Dynamik are giving out their trap remix of Garmiani’s “Behind You.” The mix is a wonderfully chaotic blend of just about everything, from melodic synth lines & vocal to heavy bass, blips, and high hats. Rounding out this week’s #FreePlayThursday is Marcus Schossow’s Summer remix of “Young & Beautiful,” because no list would be complete without a dance mix of Lana Del Rey. Luckily, Schossow switches it up from the average Lana remix by keeping his focus solely on the soundscape and melody, giving the whole thing a glittering, late-night beach vibe.
