Friday, our favorite day of the week. It ushers in the weekend, the two days we look forward to every day from Monday through Thursday. Friday also marks the day we get to deliver all our favorite free downloads that we’ve been collecting. In this week’s edition we get some quality hits from the likes of Ashdown who starts things off, CRAY, Valentine, FIGHT CLVB (this one is extra hot), The Golden Pony, Bijou and many more. We were going to have Delta Heavy close things out with their energetic edit of Hans Zimmer, but we decided to give you something to ease the night away with a cool one from Marcus James. Enjoy all fourteen as you enter the weekend. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.
Welcome to the dojo for another first listen with a premiere from Hood Rich. From our friends at Fool’s Gold Records comes an official remix by the Queensland producer of “Lover” originally by Tommy Trash and A-Trak with Jesse Boykins III. Although the track is due out on the Group Chat Remixes EP, we’ve come together to give you an early listen to this bumpin’ cut a day early.
Hood Rich gets deep and dirty with this fresh take on “Lover.” House and tech heads are in for a real treat with this one as it’s smooth grooves are just what clubs and festivals are desiring. The original single was a bit more upbeat, with an electro edge to it that Hood Rich trades for a darker tone. Overall it makes for a solid remix with a sound completely different than the original. Hood Rich made it his own while doing justice to the original tenfold.
One of the coolest cats around goes by the name of Bobby Nourmand. We were lucky enough to catch him in Miami and chat a bit and he told us he had something coming soon… And now that something is here. His single “D U S T” dropped today as a free download.
Bobby keeps things very chill with this deep cut that samples the great Moby. Although the song leans heavily on a relaxed, cosmic sound, Bobby still infuses a steady groove crowds can connect to. With shows on the horizon like the illustrious Tomorrowland, that groove is going to come in handy. Bobby has always been a unique producer pushing his own brand of house, one that stays true to the roots while taking things a step forward. Take in “D U S T” today and keep at the ready for more from Bobby Nourmand.
To tease fans for his upcoming EP, Colours, Kendl went ahead and released “For Her” off the project early. Even if nobody else is – which is 100% not the case – all of us ninjas are ready for the EP as this single has us at the edge of our seats with our ears perked up.
“For Her” is an intimate house record that’s almost too chill to even be labeled as anything but electronic. Everything about it is subtle, but in those subtleties lies a remarkable beauty that is easy to connect to. It’s one of those songs that you simply lose yourself in. It’s not until the end of the record that the composition gets a bit more colorful and complex. “For Her” is not something you’re going to want to miss a second of. If you’re digging it like us, get a copy from iTunes today.
If you thought the beginning of your week was going to be dull, think again. Enter WHIPPED CREAM, whose remix of “Gunshot” by Jackal is going to turn your Monday into a Friday. To make things even better, WHIPPED CREAM dropped this hot one as a free download, so you’d be doing yourself a massive disservice by sleeping on it.
What’s great about this remix is it might even be better than the original. Now that’s usually hard to do – and even harder to judge – but this one just has a bit more energy and attitude than it’s counterpart, which is saying a lot given its nature. WHIPPED CREAM came with her guns blazing, flipping “Gunshot” into exactly what people are looking for this Summer. It’s harder, with a second drop that is just absolutely savage. Enjoy it today and don’t forget to download it for free!
It’s Friday night, so pull out whatever it is you need for fun. What you don’t need to bring out is music, because we got you covered there. As always, we’ve collected our favorite free downloads from over the past seven days to give to you. We’ve got some incredible records from the likes of The Hi-Yahs who kick things off for us, as well as 2Tone Disco, one of our favorites in Havok Roth, Creaky Jackals and the one and only CRIZZLY who closes things out with some heavy bass. You’ll find plenty of more talented artists with top quality singles as you jam through the 243rd edition of our Friday Party Playlist. Enjoy all twelve, have a great (and safe) night and most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.
Chicago is legendary for its house music. There’s a long, LONG list of talented artists pushing the genre in all sorts of directions and one of those is GOLDHOUSE. Grant Harris does his artist moniker justice by pushing out some of the most insatiable house around, which is just what he did with his single “Sex On Me” released through Armada Deep.
“Sex On Me” is just that: aural sex, and you’re going to want it all over you. Will it go on repeat? Yes, without question. What makes this song what it is – what makes it special – is the pop treatment both the instrumental and vocal carry. I’m sure there are people out there who will want to debate exactly what “Sex On Me” is, but we don’t really want any of that. What we want it to kick back, relax and enjoy one hell of a record over and over again. This will likely be your plan of action as well! Keep the good vibes up.
