This week we grabbed records from the likes of Fareoh, 2Tone Disco, Dusty Bits, Bad Royale and some of our other favorites.

Before that, you get plenty of other insane works that are all available for the price tag of $0. Grab them all, as they will aid you in letting loose this weekend to recharge your batteries for next week. If there’s one thing we ask of you, it would be that you make sure to #danceirresponsibly.

Work Me Out [ft. Rye Rye] (Moonbase Commander Remix)
Sydney based, genre-skirting producer Moonbase Commander seemingly bubbled up out of the ether with a clearly defined and polished sound on his collab with Cakes Da Killa for their 2015 single “Serve it Up”, which received quite the reputable slate of critical support when it first made the rounds. In the time since, the Australian artist’s been continuously honing that sound, with the recent release of the Southpaw EP on October Records, which only seemed to elevate the collective appetites of his listeners. So, when the Commander’s latest tune floated our way in the form of a remix for fellow TMN regulars PACES and their Rye Rye featuring single “Work Me Out”, we were like giddy cheerleaders before a pep rally.
On his latest record, Moonbase Commander trots out a hypnotically knocking kick-drum, fueled by alchemistic pads, before delving into a heap of two-step drum patterning which holds up Rye Rye’s flitty cypher as if it were resting on a bed of anthracite storm clouds. MBC’s bass-first soundscape toys with stadium-trap sized bass swells, gigantic drums and loopy synths; all pulled off with the confident swagger of an underground beatsmith and grace of an established veteran. Quite appetizing stuff really. Moonbase Commander’s remix comes as part of etcetc music‘s official remix package which is out this Friday (preorder on iTunes here). Just try not to get your lean on too hard and throw out your back to this one, and enjoy Moonbase Commander’s “Work Me Out” remix before anyone else above.
Super Best Records just put out a gem of a project with the collaborative Crossing Borders EP. Created by duo’s Willdabeast and SwAy, this three track project is a collection of future funk records that revolve around the concept of love. There are a ton of songs about relationships, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find an EP this cool about it, especially within the glitch bass realm.
Willdabeast and SwAy’s sound fit together like a hand in a glove, it just works. Throw some sweet vocals on the tracks from Brittany Littke and Sinclair Hucke, and you have yourself something extra spectacular. All three tracks are magnificent, bringing a slightly different mood to the table; even within the productions the songs ebb and flow through different emotions and sounds. Crossing Borders starts off strong with “Cuz I Need You Baby,” then moves to the cerebral “On My Mind,” and finishes off with perhaps the best record on the EP, “Peace Offering.” Lastly, Willdabeast and SwAy released this one for free, so get to downloading!
Whether you’re at SXSW, Miami, or just at home, we’ve got some music for you. For those of you who are not attending this month’s music festivities, we’ve gathered a dozen tracks to help you feel like you’re there. Sure, there will still be some fomo, but hey; there’s always next year. Despite many artists being out gallivanting about, a heap of dope records came out and we’ve narrowed them down to the free downloads you need for the weekend. We have a little future funk, some trap, and a variety of house tracks that are sure to help get your party started. Favorites from this week include Manic Focus, Major Lazer & Grandtheft’s collaboration, and a single from a brand new project called Sebrus. Check out the lot, and get to downloading the ones you enjoy. No matter where you are, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.

Fans of GRiZ are going to be jiving with this one, as it shares a similar vibe to some of his records. “On My Mind” is just one glitch-ridden piece of a whole project; one that is coming in full soon.

[Event Preview] Red Bull Sound Select Denver Presents: SANGO w/ SPZRKT & CRL CRRLL @ Cervantes Ballroom – 3/31
It’s no secret that we’ve grown very close with and fond of our friends at Red Bull Sound Select. Truly one of the few major corporations involved in music putting their influence to good use, the amazing curators, thinkers, and artists involved with RBSS have always had their ears to the streets towards burgeoning artists across a plethora of genres; inciting within us Ninjas a need to see each and every one of their eclectic showcases near our respective hometowns. In the past few years alone in this writer’s fair (and Superbowl defending champion) city of Denver, we’ve been privy to some of our favorite acts including The Internet, (the artists formerly known as) Viet Cong, Shigeto & Cloud Nothings; and with that, we’ve already come up on another tastefully crafted night of music provided by the RBSS crew. We’ve been excited as ever since first hearing rumblings about this one a while back, and finally on 3/31, Seattle based producer SANGO will make his way to the Mile High City to headline a night of top-to-bottom heat, which will also see performances from SPZRKT (Spazzy Rocket), and CRL CRRLL (Carl Carrell).
In anticipation of the next Denver stop for Red Bull Sound Select, we’ve put together a mini-playlist featuring selections from each artist on the night’s bill. As with every RBSS show, an early RSVP will get you in for the measly price of $3, so hop to it here and get there early to guarantee your spot. We’ll see you on the floor.
