IT’S ANOTHER ROUND OF THE DIRT, HAAAAAAAAAAAAN! A DAY LATE FOR Y’ALLS LONG WEEKEND! *AIRHORN*
In true-to-form fashion, I went a little ham on the R&B influences and remixes… there’s a lot of good stuff circulating right now and whilst still full of summer-driven high serotonin levels I’m basically only listening to stuff that I can sing/rap along to or dance to… or both. There’s a good sprinkling of emotion and a touch of acid just to round it off. Can’t be on one all the time you know. Also I think the median age for the remixers/producers on these tracks is around 20 which means A. I’m getting old and B. college-level guys are way more into Amerie and Ciara (publicly) than I remember.
My good bud Burn Unit really vibing off the British & American producers and vibes, lots of feel-good stuff in his picks from quite a few budding producers.
You can of course download each individual track via Soundcloud but each of us have zipped our selections up for you for easy download purposes. Trust us. – Laura
Following our Aussie-heavy takeover of Dim Mak Studios two nights ago, we’ve got another “mate” in our midst: Ta-Ku! After falling in love with Ta-Ku’s stuff when I first heard tracks like “When I Met You” and “Glacier” I’ve been keeping an eye and an ear on the veteran Australian producer. His edit of Flume and Cosmo’s Midnight have been very strong entities on the ‘free download’ front this year, and that doesn’t even begin to touch the amount of stuff he’s released and given away just in the past few months.
Next up for grabs is “I Miss You”… it’s a little bit sad and a little bit charming… overall it makes me really happy Soundcloud offers an open-ended option for artists to put a genre on the track, as this one being defined as “music to break up to” is simply perfect.
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!
