2017 has been full of amazing free downloads so far. Each week when we gather in the dojo to put together our Friday Party Playlist, it’s always tough narrowing songs down to just around a dozen. You need party tracks, so we make sure to deliver time and time again. This week we have just that, a dozen songs for your ears and your digital library, if you so choose to download them. Not only do we have our usual collection, but we decided to throw in a little bonus for you. At the end of the list is a cool mix by Seattle DJ Tollefson that you can also happen to download for free. Before you get to her, check out records from the likes of HXV, Jinco, Meaux Green, Kompany x Wooli, Sullivan King x Nightowls, Destructo, PatrickReza and more! Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.

The Big Easy. The Crescent City. Nawlins. New Oar-leans. Whatever you call it, you know that it stands upon a few strongly-planted pillars–good food, good music, and good times.

Two of WiseMind‘s emcees, CJ Warren & Fre$h, just dropped a hot one from their studio in Detroit. The duo’s EP, Fre$h Jays, is a strong underground hip-hop record that stands out among the rap that can be heard over the airwaves today.
Depending on who you ask, hip-hop either is or isn’t in a state of crisis. As far as CJ Warren and Fre$h are concerned, there is no crisis in their camps. With Fre$h Jays they bring some fire throughout the five singles, with some added heat from KyleYDG on the last song “Shots in the Whip.” The style shifts throughout the project, giving it a dynamic edge that is lost in a lot of rap nowadays. A huge part of that comes from CJ Warren who not only raps on the album, but produced it as well. Stream it today while you kick back over the weekend.
Vancouver resident and Casablance Records signee Imanos just dropped a genre-defying single with Pusha T and Karen Harding. Together these three cooked up “Gunshy,” the producers debut original single. It’s been a long time coming but now it is finally here in full.
“Gunshy” is a cool sort of duet, with Pusha T’s rapping playing off Karen’s sweet vocal. For a first song, Imanos didn’t pull any punches with his instrumental that is “a straight banger” as Imanos puts it in his own words. We’d have to agree. The quality of this single is just what you would expect coming from a major label artist. Even in working with someone as big as Pusha T, Imanos stands his ground as an artist deserving of all the same type of recognition. Get your copy of “Gunshy” today.
