Free DL: Chu – New Dae (Lakim Remix)

I got familiar with Lakim’s beats via his appearance this past friday alongside Doctor Jeep, DJ Hoodboi and Arnold at Planet Cognac’s show. Following him on soundcloud was a no-brainer, and my good taste was immediately rewarded when he posted this super-funky, stripped down house remix. That organ riff has been stuck in my head for 2 days so I figure I better post it. Even his dj drop is great. You can also grab a free download of this over at bandcamp. Looking forward to hearing a lot more from this guy, and hopefully he’ll be back in NYC soon.

Tessela-ted Beats: Hackney Parrot VIP, Dust Remix, & a 2nd Drop Classic

One of summer’s biggest tunes, Tessela’s Hackney Parrot, gets a VIP rework by Paul Woolford (as Special Request). It retains all the breaky goodness of the original, but has a bit more fun drawing out the key samples into a 7 minute tantric drum break workout. Radio rip from Benji B (the cheeky bit about

STRT003: Herobust/Pixelord split 7 inch

For the last 1.5 years, Saturate Records have been releasing dozens of free albums and LPs of unprecedented quality, mining the fertile intersections of post-dubstep, glitch hop, juke and future bass. This week they blessed us with web previews of a very special split 7″ vinyl (only their third vinyl release ever) from rising stars

Avalanche Psychiatrist – Box Rocket remix

Ok so Ewan Hoozami is one of my favorite DJs of all time. I’ve listened to his insanely amazing It’s A Stickup! mix easily a hundred times since March of ’09, and like all great works of art it has continued to reveal new sides to it’s brilliance. Monsieur Hoozami has also been knocking out

David Rodigan and Toddla T on Red Bull Music Academy Radio

Love Like Water – Toddla T Remix

Fact: Toddla T is a fucking badman. One of the least pretentious, and most prolific gents in UK Bass, Toddla T’s productions are ruthlessly engineered to get your ass on the dancefloor. Witness how many times you (I) wiled out to Take It Back this summer. Fucking love that tchune. Anyway, fresh womps from the

Submotion Orchestra Finest Hour Remixes

The peerless Submotion Orchestra drop a remix EP on Monday, 12/19: Finest Hour – The Remixes. The full length, Finest Hour, would be a shoe-in for my year end top 10 list, if I were into that. The remix EP is packed to the gills at 9 tracks, with some of the most respected names in the

Redlight Feat. Ms Dynamite - What You Talking About!? (Cryptex Reglitch)

What You Talkin About – Cryptex Remix

Still moist from the soundcloud, this is everything a glitchhop remix should be. With so many producers hopping on the neutered post-dubstep house/techno hybrid sound, it’s nice to see a producer return to their “crunk glitch roots”.  Which is funny, cuz the guy who made this, Cryptex, is supposedly only 17 years old. Can you

TONS of free tunes from Streetlab!

One of the really standout artists I found this year was Streetlab. Based just down the road from us in Brooklyn, these two gents have been cranking out remixes that absolutely knock my socks off.

And today they announced via facebook that THEY ARE GIVING AWAY EVERY TRACK & REMIX THEY PRODUCED THIS YEAR. Click on that bigass link to get em! These are two prolific dudes – something like 20 remixes and another half dozen originals. And they all slay. In particular, I want to listen to that Hall & Oates remix all the goddamn time.

Their style really reminds me of The Philip Steir remix of “Magic Carpet Ride” from the GO soundtrack (anyone else play that one till your discman broke?) – they preserve the vibe of the original track while amping it up with modern production… par example, peep their most excellent remix of Gimme Shelter below:

So what are you waiting for?! Go cop the rest of these fantastic tracks!
