FREE beats from Perverse, Camu, Phaeleh, and NDread

Big up everybody!  Today I’ve stumbled across a very large amount of free music so I thought that I would share it with everybody.  I hope you have some space on your drive because there is quite a large amount of tunes circulating at the moment.

First batch of tunes for your free download cravings come from one of the most talented producers in the world, Phaeleh.  He has decided to give out a 4-Track EP download if you sign up for his mailing list (can be done here).  The EP offers 4 tunes, all of different vibe/style, ranging from downtempo house to dubwise spliff riddim’.  You don’t want to miss out on these, Phaeleh has a production ability that places him in a category of his own.  Truly an amazing artist.

If you didn’t catch our interview w/ Phaeleh earlier this year, take a look here:  https://bassweightsociety.com/2012/01/23/phaeleh-interview/

.

Next up on the free tip is an LP from our New Zealand friends Perverse.  This is the second installment of the ‘Progression’ series of free downloads that Perverse has been so kind as to give up for free download.  The track encompass productions of various styles and age.

“A mixture of the old with the new. We decided to release the Progression EP in 4 different volumes, this being the second. Each Vol. will feature 4-5 tracks of mixed genres and styles. Some of the older tunes don’t have the production value of the newer ones, but we thought we would give them away anyway.

“‘Barren’ is an ultra minimal creepy tune that never got to see the light of day so we though we would give it away. ‘Cluster’ is an older track of ours that’s had the support of artists like Biome. ‘Space Kush’ is a tune we struggled to finish, 2nd drop is a bit of a copy & paste job but it still goes pretty hard. The Shura remix is something different for us, a minimalistic/downtempo garagey tune that we enjoyed making, we don’t play it so we thought we would share it with you to listen to. ‘Homebrew’ are an NZ hip-hop group that we are fans of, so we had a crack at a remix for a bit of fun and have had a few people request it for D/L.”

Give it up to the boys at Perverse, THIS IS HUGE.  Be on the look for Parts 3 & 4 – soon to come.  Big up FatKidOnFire for always hosting such fine music for the people dem’.

.

Next is a tune that my good friend Shawnee Altman, aka Camu, has decided to give away for free.  If you’ve kept up with this site you should be somewhat familiar with Camu’s sound.  He takes a lot of tribal and eastern influences to incorporate into his music, sampling things from Bollywood films to shamanic rituals.  A very promising young producer no doubt!  Take a listen to this one, titled ‘The Journey To Find Anas Hassanati’.

.

The last bit of free music is a beautifully composed tune from badman NDread from the ICU/MUD outfit.  This is another one hosted by the boys at Deep Heads – always keeping things real!  This one sees NDread’s signature style of soul and groove whilst bringing garage style swing to the table as well.  This man is a complete badman on the buttons and is definitely someone to keep your eyes as he will be making large-large moves in the near future.  Hit download and tell the man what you think!

.

Alright everyone hope you enjoy the sounds.  Not everyday that this large a quantity of music is being given away for free.  We will see you next time fam’.

To the gods.

Exclusive Interview: TMSV

Blessings, friends.  Welcome back.  We have a truly amazing feature today with, in my opinion, one of the greatest producers in the circuit right now.  Tomas Roels, aka TMSV, has been kind enough to give us a few words about his influences, his plans for 2012, and some thoughts on the US dubstep scene.  It is really an honor to have the opportunity to work with this guy as I’ve been a huge fan ever since I first heard his sounds on Box Clever in 2010.  Being creative as a youth with things such as painting and drawing acted as a catalyst into Roels’ adoption of music production.  The idea of “creating something out of nothing”, as he put it in his interview with FatKidOnFire/MakeItGood back in August of 2011 (Check it here). It wasn’t until he was around the age of 15 that he began the journey of forming his own ‘sound’.  While things didn’t necessarily take off in the beginning, as soon as he was introduced to jungle and drum and bass, things began to come together.  After gaining the satisfaction of creating his own music, “something from nothing”, his passion and dedication exploded.  After becoming bored with producing “hard and repetitive” dnb, he was introduced to dubstep by his cousin.  He was hooked on the space and endless amount of possibilities that the space provided for his compositional creativity.  The rest is history.

Fast-forward to 2012 and TMSV is receiving support from Mala, Youngsta, DJ Thinking, DJ Madd, J:Kenzo, and the list could go on for days.  It’s no surprise that this is the case with the sound versatility that he brings to the table.  There are purely meditative tracks like ‘Myth’, hard-hitting rollers like his recent collaboration ‘Difference’, and dub influenced jams such as his latest remix of “Lay Down My Burden’ which is set to release sometime soon on the label Foundation Sound.  Whatever the style is, he seems to be able to hit the nail on the head.  Since 2010 he has earned himself a number of top-notch releases on labels like Tube10, although the majority of his signings are by Black Box/Box Clever.  Releasing music almost exclusively with Black Box/Box Clever, label owner Thinking has got to be a pretty happy man!  2012 proves to be a very successful year for Tomas as he gives us news of many upcoming collaborations and new sounds to be conquered, so be sure that you keep your ears on this guy!  So, without any further introduction, let’s see what this true badman has to say:

—————————-

BWS: Quickly, can you give the readers a little back round information about yourself?  

TMSV: My name is Tomas, 23 years old and I’m from the Netherlands. I’ve been making electronic music for a couple of years, mainly dubstep.

BWS: Where did the moniker TMSV originate?

TMSV: When I first started making music I was really into jungle. One night a friend and I were joking around and he called me Tomassive (or at least that’s what I remember), so I just started to use that as a production alias. After a while I thought it was a bit gimmicky, so I changed it to TMSV. I guess it doesn’t mean anything anymore, but I urge people to have fun imagining what the letters could possibly stand for.

BWS: In your interview with Kmag last year, you stated that you think very highly of Mala because of his carelessness towards the expectations of others and money.  It’s really great to hear things like that.  What do you take away from your own music?  By that I mean what sorts of fulfillment do you get from it, psychologically or spiritually?

TMSV: Well, I’m not a spiritual person, but I guess I am emotional. I tend to use music as an outlet. I always feel the need to make music to express myself in a way. I’m not sure if the tunes themselves describe my emotions directly, but the way I feel definitely determines the way my tunes sound.

What I take away from my own music is more of a psychological fulfillment, as you put it. The fact that I can make the music I want to make, and the fact that people really seem to like it, is fantastic.

It’s been a bit tricky for a while. The more people liked and played my tunes, the more I felt pressured to make tunes that sound a certain way. I’ve made some pretty generic tunes recently (that probably nobody has heard), but I’ve realised that I should just keep making my music. It’s supposed to be fun.

.

BWS: Sadly, I have never had to chance to visit the Netherlands.  The pictures I’ve seen of the geography are really astounding, though.  The amount of green in the countryside is magical.  The architecture of the cities is something to marvel over as well.  How much inspiration, if any, do you gather from your surroundings?

TMSV: I really like this country. There aren’t many exotic or amazing things to see nature-wise, but it’s never ugly. I like the cities as well, old Dutch architecture can be really beautiful, and luckily there are lots of old buildings that are still standing.

I guess I gather inspiration from the relative serenity of the area where I live. One of the best things about this place is that you can almost always escape from the chaos of modern city life. I live in a quiet neighborhood as well, and it’s a 15 minutes’ walk to the centre of the city, so if I want to see friends and have a drink, I can choose to leave my quiet house and go to the slightly more busy city. I think the fact that going out doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re jumping into a city full of chaos and noise is calming in a way.

BWS: Furthering on influences and inspiration, how did the track ‘Myth’ come about?  Hands down one of the best tunes that was released last year.  I listen to the tune almost everyday when I get off work and every time it sounds fresh.  Seriously, big up for that production.

TMSV: Thank you very much! It’s actually very reliant on samples, as you can hear from the lead sound. After using the sample(s) I made a bassline and a beat, added some atmospheres and other sounds, and that’s all there was to it, really. I have to say that the tune was already at least 2 years old when it was released, so I can’t really remember too much about how I made it.

.

BWS: Do you see yourself going in any specific direction with your productions in 2012?

TMSV: Definitely. As I said, I’m focusing on making music right now. I’m trying to avoid being boring and predictable, to a certain extent of course. At the moment I’m making more than just 140 BPM music: I’m working on dub, house, garage, hip-hop, downtempo, all kinds of stuff.

BWS: What are your feelings on the 140 jungle tunes that have been getting hype lately?

TMSV: There’s definitely some great 140 jungle around at the moment, in fact I just got some today that sounded sick.

It seems to be difficult (for me as well as for other producers) to really ‘get it right’ and not sounding like a parody of the typical jungle sound. Jungle was never about quantising and getting your samples to sound just right; it was about the groove of the breaks you used, the simple but effective basslines and the vibes of the blatantly sampled sounds that were scattered around the tune. Modern music production software makes it much easier to make a really well-produced tune than the old samplers the jungle guys used to have, and I think nowadays you actually have to put effort into balancing a nice mixdown with getting an ‘authentic’ sound.

BWS: You have been collaborating with some really sick artists recently, like DJ Madd and June Miller.  Can we expect a lot more collaborations to come?

TMSV: Yes, definitely. I’m working with loads of people right now, but I’m not going to tell you who they are, because you never know if a collab is going to work or not.

I’m also looking for vocalists to work with me. I’ve had some responses already, but I’m always open to singers and MCs who would like to work with me. Please don’t hesitate to send me a message through Soundcloud or Facebook.

.

BWS: What are your views on the US dubstep scene, as a whole?  Do you see yourself making it out this way anytime soon?

TMSV: Hopefully, yes. I’ve only been to the US once, about 9 years ago. I’d really love to visit again at some point. You can count on me flooding Facebook with spam when someone books me to come play in the US.

I don’t know much about your dubstep scene, but I do know that the deeper sound has gained popularity recently, which is great. It’s a huge country and very musically diverse, so I can’t see why the dubstep scene couldn’t be great.

BWS: If you could collaborate with any US based producer, who would it be, and why?

TMSV: When it comes to dubstep (and related genres), DJG (Grenier) or Matty G. Their tunes are very musical and diverse and the production is always sick, so collaborating with either of them would be cool. I’m probably missing ten thousand other American producers in my head right now. Sorry, you know how it is.

There are so many US based producers of other styles, it would be impossible to choose one or even ten. I do think I should name Dr. Dre and RZA just in case they Google themselves while looking for Dutch producers to work with.

———————————-

Serious amount of respect out to TMSV for doing this feature for us, it was truly an honor.  All the heads reading this that are new to his sounds, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do!  Be sure to stop by his Soundcloud and Facebook page and show him some love and support if you’re feeling his vibes.  You can find links to both below.

Alright people, that’s it for today.  Now I’m off to Coachella with the homie Lowkey to check out some very diverse musicians/bands out in Indio, CA.  Really stoked to see Machinedrum and Sbtrkt, among many many others.  Pretty stoked to see Sub Focus’s new “live” set as well.  Anyways, hope everybody has a great weekend filled with good vibes, good people, and good music.  One love.

Press Play: TZR & Tallan

Welcome back friends and fellow deep heads. For today’s feature we have a mix and a couple freebies to hold you over until the weekend, but most importantly we’re gonna  introduce a stateside producer that everyone should be keeping their ears out for. Seattle’s TZR started out his electronic epoch as a drum and bass dj, then took hold of dubstep,  and now is giving Us dubstep a good name with heaps of releases to back him up. His sounds can best be described as deep, dark and eerie. The experienced listener can hear his drum and bass background shine through in most tracks and it most definitely proves to his advantage. Coming at people with persistent rolling basslines, energetic drums and spacious synths, TZR is surely an artist to follow.

With a slew of tracks on a range of labels, TZR’s music is widely available to the public and listening is highly encouraged. Check out his most recent EP on California based sub Pressure Recordings:

.

He gave out a free tune today with pal, Issa:

.

Fellow bloggers FatKidOnFire got an interview and downloadable mix with, TZR back in October. Get the down low here.

Next up is a freshly broadcast radio set from New Zealand’s up and comer, Tallan. Previously featured on the site, check out this post or his Soundcloud to introduce yourself to Tallan, or better yet, listen to this mix of all original tracks.

.

The mix was blasted on sub.fm and dives in deep and tribal, then picks up halfway through with a range of percussive and sub heavy bangers (even a 140 jungle track too). Download this mix, do what you will with it, and make sure to follow Tallan on Soundcloud and Facebook

Until next time,
