Today is the first Friday of Decemeber, so we’re kicking in the last month of 2016 with some super solid records from some of our favorite up and coming producers. The list runs on, but some of who you may find include KRNE, Rad Cat, Dusty Bits and Twine. As usual, we collected a dozen of our favorite free downloads from over the past week and put them all together for you right here in the Friday Party Playlist. Take us with you to your function tonight, blast the tunes and have yourself a ball. If you need more music, there are 223 other editions of this playlist you can rummage through! No matter what you decide to do, when you turn on these records, make sure to do us a favor and #danceirresponsibly.

The Melancholy Tribute Of Bodhi Paige
There’s nothing quite like finding a choice offering of beats to kick off your weekend with, especially when they happen to be brand spankin’ new. Today, we have just that for you, giving you a proper nudge into a few sweet days of unadulterated bliss with this tasty new tune.
If you’ve been following us for some time, you should be familiar with Denver-based option4. From our Artist Residency to a few premieres here and there, we’ve been longtime fans of this highly infectious artist and his dirty, clubby, and inventive house beats.
“The Melancholy Tribute of Bodhi Page” is a dusty, organic, fresh from the farmer’s market offering. Seriously, you might find yourself drawn to a flannel shirt and some locally sourced kale after a trip through this one. The crackling atmospheric elements perfectly mimic the experience of listening to your favorite vinyl record, which gives this track a warm and familiar feel. The kicks are clean and pronounced, as we’ve come to expect from option4 through the years, pairing perfectly with hi-hat rattles and a big, soulful vocal sample.
Wherever your weekend takes you, even if it actually is a farmer’s market, make sure you have “The Melancholy Tribute of Bodhi Page” on hand and ready to jam.

We love a good music video. We love a great one even more and that’s what we have for you today in this Music Ninja Premiere. The song + video comes to us from a threeway collaboration between New York’s Darku J, the LA duo Styles&Complete, as well as the newcomer vocalist SISTERWIFE.
Their song “Kick In The Bass” is something to be cherished by bassheads everywhere. It’s not your typical track as it melds electro with breakbeat, a trend that has been steadily gaining pace within the last several months. Together, Darku J and Styles&Complete put together one of the more memorable songs within this style, and SISTERWIFE is a big part of that. Her vocal performance is magnificent; you’ll be singing the lyrics in no time. With the music video, we get something that is just as unique and fun. We won’t dive into the exact details. You’ll have to just watch and enjoy.
Easily one of the most influential architects thriving around the edges of dance & electronic music today, Joe Goddard seems to carry a certain gravitas whenever his name is attached to anything. Known by most casuals as one of the chief patrons behind almighty indie-tronica troupe Hot Chip, and co-founder of Greco-Roman Records (the same label which helmed debut releases from the likes of Disclosure, Roosevelt & TEED), Goddard has also quietly carved out quite the tastemaking assemblage of admirers over the course of 20 years worth of high profile remix work as a solo artist. Goddard’s latest single to come from the aforementioned Greco-Roman camp, “Lose Your Love”, received its visual counterpart today, and quite honestly, it’s one of the more polished and funnier music videos we’ve seen over the year.
Earlier this month we had the pleasure of asking a newcomer to the dance music arena some questions. That man was Jetset. The Youtuber-gone-producer gave us a sneak peak into his EP, Flight, with a single, but now the full project is here at last.
With four songs, Jetset cements himself as a creator that needs to be taken seriously. He’s not jumping on any bandwagon, and if he was, dubstep probably wouldn’t be his style of choice, despite it making waves back to the forefront of EDM. Now, this EP isn’t entirely dubstep, as the single “BLOW YA MIND” kicks things up with its electro meets breakbeat sound. In speaking of sound, one has to mention just how good of a sound designer Jetset is already. Each song is packed with vibrant samples; Jetset came out swinging hard with some aggressive, tactical hits. If you’re a fan of guys like Spag Heddy and Ray Volpe, then add Jetset to your list of priorities, because he’s got a lot more coming. I mean, this is only his first project ever… Did we also mention it’s free?
