Destiny’s Child - Independent Women (Zyklon Sound Bootleg)
I’d been getting a bit sick of hearing R&B acapellas all the time, but this pacey, bass-heavy beat from Zyklon Sound complements the female vocals brilliantly. Be sure to grab a free download here.
Claremont - Don’t Bring Me Dub
Airhead - Milkola Bottle
Taken from Airhead’s forthcoming LP “For Years”, another 2013 release which looks to be shaping up nicely.
T.34 - Cystian
Mount Kimbie - You Took Your Time (feat. King Krule)
This is incredible.
Joachim De Lux - Caravane (with Antoine Algar)
I was pleasantly surprised to be sent this EP today. Joachim De Luxe, who cites Nicolas Jaar and Mount Kimbie as influences, combines garage, house and even Flying Lotus-type beats on his new EP, “Salmon”. Download “Caravane” for free here, and grab a free download of the entire “Salmon” EP here.
Pascäal - Rain Jacket
The FM synth chords and childlike, warped vocal sample at the start of “Rain Jacket” could be taken straight from James Blake’s “Klavierwerke” EP. But the track becomes Pascäal’s own when crisp percussion and a smooth bassline are thrust towards the listener at just under 130bpm. Taken from Pascäal’s forthcoming EP, “Fragile”, out on Vresh on July 4th, on vinyl and digital.
Arthur Berlinn - Swagger Karate
Jammin - No Singing (Dubbacle Remix)
Super heavy grime/dubstep remix from Dubbacle. Free download here.
