It’s always a great feeling to randomly bump into great producers from your own country, isn’t it? Only happens every once in a while, way less than one would expect! Today was one of those lucky days thanks to Dirty Bunnies, a producer duo from Vesilahti, Finland. I find their sound refreshing (refreshingly good quality, too!) and just the right kind of dirty – gonna play these babies out for sure. Check out a couple of their tracks below, grab a free download of their remix of “Clarity” by Zedd and buy the rest you like to support the talent – links provided after the tracks!
Been quiet for a while again, but I’ll make up for it by posting some of the best of the free-with-the-artists-permission-music I’ve gathered from various sources lately.
Starting out strong with what’s said to be one of the last tracks we’ll ever hear Lupe Fiasco on – he’s said that he’s going to quit rap and return to literature, admittedly his first love. Whether this is the case or not, here’s his track American Terrorist Pt.II (Superheroes). The track was produced by none other than TheFatRat himself, by the way.
Someone might call this next one a part of some new genre or another, but as I’ve lately more than ever begun to move away from categorizing songs into (sub)genres in my mind, I’ll just leave it at this: K Theory’s Geeked Up has bunches of bass, interesting and pleasant sounds and it makes me move, what else can one ask for in EDM?
A bit of beauty will never hurt anything, and that includes my blog posts. Sound Remedy’s remix of Carousel’s Let’s Go Home has soothing buildups and breakdowns, beautifully sang vocals with matching lyrics and a powerful and very danceable, yet smooth and pleasant beat at the “drop”. It gets progressively grittier towards the end, but not too much at all. And it’s free too!
Next up a remix of Lights – Toes by an amazing and very underrated producer from Italy called TapeKiller to take us seamlessly from chill towards the rough finisher I’ve lined up. I’ve been fidgeting to push some of his stuff on here for a while now, and here’s my chance – it’s a free DL just like the rest of the stuff on this one.
The last one for today is a track I heard a long time ago but took this long to find – for some reason I was under the impression it was nowhere to be legally found on the internet, but all this time it’s been a free download. Stupid me. I’m talking about a remix by Kill The Noise, a personal favorite in the heavy dubstep area, of Yelawolf’s Growin’ Up In The Gutter. Don’t forget to check out Kill The Noise’s new Black Magic EP on 6.11.!
I’ve been playing out this amazing remix by the finnish artist Snouz for a while now, and I’d like all of you to hear it as well. It’s been available as (I think) a free DL at his Soundcloud page for some time as well, but it’s since been deleted. Don’t worry though! I asked the artist if I could upload the remix on my site here, and he was glad to provide me with permission. So, without further ado, have a listen by clicking the link!
Let’s start this off with a collaboration. I don’t know about you people, but I missed this one when Borgore released “Flex” some months back and only found it a couple of days ago – have a listen to Borgore feat. Dev – Kiss My Lips.
This one I heard last weekend – it’s been out for over a week, though. Sander Van Doorn’s new track with Julian Jordan, ‘Kangaroo’, starts out as a pretty ordinary-sounding Van Doorn track, but transforms into an interesting piece of music midway through in a surprise move.
For the last track of this update I have a special treat for you from that Finnish progressive house producer we’ve seen a couple of times before on here, Snouz. He took to remixing Nervo’s latest hit and made it way better (as usual), at least in my opinion. What do you think? Grab a free DL (thanks again Snouz!) right here: Download the Snouz remix.
As it turns out, traveling Europe is a very much more intense experience than I anticipated, so it’s taken me over a month to have enough time with a computer to throw out one of these. I’ll try to make up for it in the future.
On the road around Europe I’ve been exposed to some new styles and flavors of music and culture in addition to hearing way too much electronic pop music all around the cities and their clubs. Because of the latter, this first Summer Special will be concentrated mostly on the grittier side of EDM, although Tomorrowland’s influence will probably shine through – might be tracks here that some of you have already heard a bunch of times. I’ll make either Summer Special #2 or #3 more about the underground sounds I’ve heard on the way, but let’s get to the music already!
Let’s kick it off with a heavy m*erfucker to shake off some of that pop smudge I still have stuck in my music nerves – Terravita and Bare, lock it down and never bring it back.
Let’s not dribble on too far to the land of the dark and heavy – even though the artist is called Noisestorm, there’s a lot of groove and happy vibes in this one. (Shout out to Doomink for sharing this on Facebook!)
Here it is, something to pump your fist and dance your feet off to! Just had to post this, the Kick out the Epic Motherfucker chant was ringing in my ears all through Tomorrowland and a friend of mine told me about this amazing remix by Otto Knows – heads up Hype Machine, the first one to join in to the chant will win something special.
Let’s take a chiller in between. Although the track is lighter and more beautiful in a sense when compared to the last ones, it still makes me feel a lot like dancing. I’m talking about There Might Be Coffee by Deadmau5 off of his upcoming album >album title goes here< .
Let’s finish this off with a remix of a tune that’s been replaying in my mind over and over again throughout the summer. Somehow I noticed this song just a month ago, not before. The remix is by Beauty Brain (who I will look into soon) and Dubsidia, a talented bass music artist – go check his stuff out, it’s pretty amazing. But now, have a listen and a download of Camo & Krooked – Hot Pursuit (Dubsidia and Beauty Brain Remix)
