As usual, we have collected some of our favorite free downloads from the week that also happen to pack a punch in the pre-game and party atmospheres that you will find yourself in this weekend. Even if you’re not out with some friends at a social gathering, that doesn’t mean you can’t party by yourself with these twelve tracks. Some of our favorite artists including Fight Clvb, 8Er$, and Eliminate can be found here, along with many other talented artists. Check out each release, download the ones you like, and make sure to #danceirresponsibly this weekend.
Latest Moombahton Posts
Most of the time when an artist releases a single, we ask ourselves, what were the other versions of the unfinished track like? Did the sound change? Well, Chris Siegel and Strehlow answered that for us with their EP This Is How. The double single project features the title track, along with a VIP that takes a turn down a completely different road.
With the original “This Is How” we get a poppy tune that is highly influenced by a tropical-infused moombahton sound. Chris Siegel and Strehlow put together a complex composition with a lot of different moving parts that couldn’t have been easy to do. They made it flow without a hitch, with the result being one incredibly smooth record. With the VIP, the producers take the track down a future bass path, but still keep some of the original vibe. It feels like a 180, but when you really listen, it’s still got that Summer time vibe to it. Collaborators on the project include Siren, Lex Allen and Christine Hoberg. We applaud everyone’s efforts in the creation of both these masterpieces that you can download for free individually. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Bad Royale stands out above most acts for several reasons. One is their combined personalities that turn heads, and another is their music that get heads banging. Their unique style is unrivaled, and they continue to put out records that increase in quality each time out. The most recent outing was with Mad Decent via their EP Immutable Timeline.
Immutable Timeline is another five track project that is jam packed with the boys’ Caribbean bass sound. The really cool thing about them is no matter where they take the sound, whether it’s through trap like with “Dutty Heart” or moombahton with “All We Need Is Love,” is that they kill it time and time again without delivering anything with a hint of stale. There are few acts that can crank out records at the Bad Royale pace, and their are even fewer who can put out only fire tracks. The Immutable Timeline EP is another example of their prestige within the music scene as a whole. They didn’t put this one together alone, as is usually the case since they work with collaborators. This time around they created magic with IAmStylez, Konshens, Suit of Black and their buds Bunji Garlin and Richie Loop. Head on over to iTunes to get your copy of the EP. It’s worth every penny.
Acid Flows (Gosteffects Remix)
One of the most intriguing dance music producers to me has always been Gosteffects. His dark and energetic tracks are right where my taste aligns, but not only that, he’s an incredibly talented producer who can take the sound anywhere he wishes. Take for example the present premiere we have with the New York producer. His official remix of “Acid Flows” by Army of the Universe, has him turning down the bpms in the midtempo range for an electro-infused moombah masterpiece.
With this style, Dillon Francis always comes up, but Gosteffects makes it his own. He stays true to the hypnotic style of the original, while taking the sound to a completely different sonic region altogether. This new version of “Acid Flows” is an absolute bomb that would terrorize any setting it was dropped into, no matter if it were a big festival, a club or even a house party. It’s one of those tracks that’s good no matter where you hear it. Gosteffect’s remix will be released on The Magic EP + Remixes, which is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. If you don’t want to pre-order, you just have to wait until February 19th for the project to drop in full.
Falling Fast feat. Maya Killtron
New York duo Love Taps have been killing it with their future dancehall style that’s seeing increased popularity all over the world. Today, we present to you the producer’s newest song “Falling Fast” as a Music Ninja Premiere. With this single, they slow things down a bit and focus on creating a groovy pop infused jam. “Falling Fast” is being self-released as a free download for the next week! Limited time only.
Love Taps create something that sort of reminds me of “Lean On,” however the vibe and execution of this single is different. The pop sensibilities are much more apparent with “Falling Fast” who’s sound also takes from moombahton and tropical house, but don’t expect the Kygo sound. Love Taps bring just enough of each stylistic influence to the table to create a well-balanced, fun record. Let’s not forget Maya Killtron who, well, let’s face it, kills it with her vocal performance. It’s an amazing single, and you’re hearing it first here!
Although the weather has most of us down, that doesn’t mean that we can’t turn up. In fact, most parties are held inside anyways, so the dark and stormy weather shouldn’t hinder your plans too much tonight. If you have plans, we hope to be a part of them via our weekly party playlist that we publish for your weekend get-togethers. As with many other weeks, we start things off a bit on the chiller side with some future sounds to ease you into the night. Some of those tracks include works from Mija and Tasty Treat. From there we get a bit more in-your-face with energetic works from the likes of 1DAFUL, ETC! ETC!, Ditta & Dumont and more. As always, all of these tracks are free downloads, so if you’re not the streaming type, you can add them to your digital library, and infuse them into a playlist of your own. No matter how you absorb them, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.
We hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving last week, but more importantly we hope the transition back to real life was easier than trying to refuse that second helping of holiday dinner. This week we catch up with some solid records, starting things off with a brand new tune from Kicks N Licks, who just started up a tour. From there we hit such artists as StéLouse, Fabian Mazur, Modern Machines, Hasse De Moor, and Ghastly. As if twelve free downloads wasn’t enough, we provided a special mix that fans of the movie Blade will be absolutely in love with. Lots of bangers, lots of fun; we hope you enjoy this week’s party playlist. Most importantly, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.
