Was it just us or were there a ton of awesome records that came out this week? This time around, our Friday Party Playlist is all party, no pre-game. We get straight into things with some heavy trap records and move into some fist-pumping house records of various styles. We top it of with some hybrid/dubstep tracks from the likes of EH!DE and Festivillainz. Before we meet those bassheads, we’re meeting up with the likes of Juke Ellington, Snavs, 5 & A Dime, Wiwek and more. They all are joining us in the dojo for some irresponsible dancing this Friday, and you can take the party with you throughout the entire weekend. As always, each of the tracks in our collection can be downloaded for free, so grab the ones that get you going wild. Have fun and #danceirresponsible.

Weekend two of Coachella is about to be underway. For the people attending the event, they’ve got their music covered, but if you’re like me, you need some for the next couple of days. As we have done for one hundred and ninety-two weeks, we have for you a collection of free downloads that will help get you into the party atmosphere. There were a ton of great freebies that came out this week, but we’ve narrowed them down to a dozen ones that are must-listens. Most of this week’s tracks are originals, with the exception of a remix of a remix by our friend Infuze, who absolutely crushed a take on Bauuer’s “Roll Up” edit. Check out all fourteen records and download the ones you dig. Whether you’re at Coachella or not, make sure to #danceirresponsibly.

Kung Fu ft. Pusha T & Future (KRNE Remix)
I’ve been interested in following Baauer‘s rise to fame, beginning with the infamous, “Harlem shake.” In multiple interviews and features, he’s attempted to separate himself from the big hit and prove to everyone that he is an exceptional producer outside of the viral jam we know and love. And I think he’s done a good job.
This remix continues the trend as Baauer releases quality new music and receives solid support from talented artists. It’s an official remix of his song “Kung Fu” by the group KRNE. I’ve been following both of these guys for a long time and needless to say, it’s a good collaboration. If you’re a fan of trap music you won’t want to miss out on this one. So I highly recommend you tune in and get down.
As we continue to dig deeper throughout the internet for music, we can get blindsided (in a good way) by a sound or voice we’ve never heard before. Maybe it’s a new style of production or a groove you can’t quite figure out the finer details of. It could even be a remix that completely reshapes your initial feelings of a song. Whatever it may entail, that slight bit of confusion or excitement you feel is the exact moment you know when you’re on to something. It’s a wonderful revelation, and that’s what this playlist is all about. Time to explore!
It’s been a little over a year since we covered Diveliner last, and the wait was certainly worth it. Diveliner thrives in almost total anonymity, and his newest effort reflect his ability to cut through saturated sounds and build up his own monumental creation. The jarring and filtered vocals scatter across the shadowy production with a robotic flourish. It would almost be disconcerting if it wasn’t so well-made. If you’re looking for something conventional in Diveliner, you won’t find it. That’s exactly what makes his mystery his own. Luckily, he has an EP on the way, and “Catwalk” is an encouraging second addition to his upcoming project.
Even as Moving Castle continues to explode in size and popularity, they’ve found their sound and stuck with it for a few years now. Recently, Kidswaste has hopped on board, and his first release with the label is a charming and melodic remix of Chet Porter. It reworks all of the best elements of Chet’s gorgeous original into a slightly more upbeat and orchestral tune, while simultaneously allowing the power and precision of Kidswaste’s talent shine through. It’s really just a nice listen and has an undeniable replay value. If you dig it, be sure to treat yourself to the free download also!
Some memories are nice. Other are not. Limbic Void constructs “Little Boy” around the latter. It’s really quite an interesting juxtaposition. Even with boisterous production, the lyrics paint a different picture entirely. He sings about a time he wasn’t proud of. That isn’t easy to do. He encapsulates a past pain into something beautiful, and it’s honestly made us do some reflecting of our own. Be on the lookout for his EP dropping on May 26th.
Everything about this tune by SiR is phenomenal. From the slick production of Rascal, to the smooth delivery of every pining line, “Tricky” is a triumph. If you’re in need of an excellent late night song, stop right here and hit play. It’s the kind of track that provides an instant calm. Everything slows down and seems much less complicated. You begin to get caught up in the moment. It’s exceptional. End your day right with “Tricky” and absorb every subtle nuance of this sleek SiR invention.
The Blancos are a wild bunch, as clearly stated by the name of their most recent release. Having premiered with Pigeons & Planes earlier this week, this duo continues the wonderful blurring of lines between genres that more and more artists have taken to applying. With a little bit of rock, alternative, and even a tinge of blues, The Blancos swagger can’t and won’t be stopped. “Wild Child” explores the feelings of an outcast with a grit that is oddly welcoming, and most people catch themselves relating to this sort of thought process at some point in their life. Why not enjoy a great song to soundtrack it with while you’re at it?
Weekend 1 of Coachella is here. Unfortunately, not all of us will be in attendance. For those of you who won’t be there, we have some festival tracks for you in lieu of the event. If you are attending, chances are you’ll have some solid travel time, so these records will help you there also. In this week’s volume of the Friday Party Playlist, we dug a little deeper and focused in on some hard hitting and heavy tracks for you. As usual, we do start off with some chiller sounds from KickRaux and Choppa Dunks, but then we quickly pick up the pace. There are several incredible house tracks this week, ranging from indie dance, to progressive to electro. After that, we hit you with some ferocious bass tracks, including a huge Play Me Records release from Eliminate. Check out all twelve free downloads, and whether you’re at Coachella or not, just make sure to #danceirresponsibly
Simone (Cabu Remix)’
There’s one record label out there that is really starting to make some waves out there with unique sounds form hidden gem artists. That label is Terrorhythm. Most recently this London label put out an EP called Meltdown from the Australian ZEKE BEATS. ZEKE’s already had releases with Slow Roast, Saturate and more, but his EP with Terrorhythm is his best work yet.
Meltdown is comprised of four records that formulate a special mixture of dubstep, trap, trip-hop and more into one project. The title track comes first with an aggressive grit that will satisfy any basshead out there. Next he gets a bit more gamer influenced with “The Freq” and gets dirty with “BDSM” that is one of the only tracks that the squeak sample is appropriate for. “Virtual Purple” closes out the EP with its thugged out sound. All four tracks are hits in and of themselves, and together in one package they make for quite an extraordinary extended listen.
