GDD has decided to put a new spin on our weekly Dirts, and instead of pairing up internally we’re branching out and pairing up with artists. So every Thursday, hop on board with us and some of our favorite artists – where you’ll get your weekly dose of 100% free tracks from us and a cool little selection of music that gives you a bit of insight into the minds of the DJs and producers you know and love.
I’ve partnered up with none other than one of my best friends, probably one of the funniest and coolest dudes in the business, the #10 gentleman on my Sexiest DJs list: Max from Prince Club. He’s the DJ version of Tom Hardy and smokes more than a chimney, and because of that we present his top 5 tracks to smoke to. Click the jump to see some of my favorite free tracks of the moment, and check out Max’s favorite stoner jams as well. Enjoy!
Flume – Left Alone ft. Chet Faker (Ta-Ku Remix)
Pretty massive heater from Ta-Ku, who takes the remix to a more energetic level whilst keeping all of the charm and specialness of the original. There’s definitely news of Chet and Flume working together for more tracks so I’d keep an ear out for those two.
Dom Kennedy – My Type of Party (Brenmar Remix)
Brenmar never disappoints on the party jams and this one comes through even on its title. It’s almost become a signature Brenmar move to change the pace of his remixes pretty dramatically over the course of the track, it’s a sneaky little move that keeps things interesting. Well done, Brenmar, well done.
Miguel – Adorn (Poupon Remix)
Nothing like your good friend (who I met through Max, nonetheless) remixing one of your favorite artists right now. I thought I’d heard enough of this track on the radio but Poupon made it into a fresh tune to hear in the club.
Mount Kimbie – Made To Stray
My god I really love Mount Kimbie. Severely, severely underrated in the US these guys. This track combines cool and weird, ambient and bounce like only Mount Kimbie can. Sooooo goooooood.
Golden Boy – Do You
MadTech is well into their free release schedule, and with this one they deliver a house tune with a very old-school vibe, lots of crashing cymbals and that groovy house drum pattern we’ve all come so close with.
Delphic – This Momentary (Skreamix)
I love Skream for many reasons, and although I’m elated about his new disco/house path, I’m not going to lie and say I won’t miss his dubstep work. This Skreamix is an older one he did, he’s a machine when it comes to making music and thankfully that means quite a bit of free music, this one is a great example of such.
Max’s Picks – “5 Tracks To Get Stoned To”:
Obviously came up with this idea and then this list while stoned out of my mind. Salutations From the the far lands of Purple Kush Queen. Where the grass is soft and the people are kind. Good day.
J Dilla – Lightworks
Its Dilla. Nuff said.
Tonto Irie – It A Ring
For when you feel like blazing up and being BAD MAN. WHA GWAN.
Doobie Brothers – What A Fool Believes
They ARE called the Doobie Brothers.
Jai Paul – Jasmine
Now light up a Jai, Paul.
DJ Koze feat. Caribou – Track ID Anyone?
Because this whole album is worth getting stoned too. Plus I’m pretty sure DJ Koze is a massive stoner.
