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.

HyperColour, Octane & DLR, Killawatt, & Blackwax

Big up fam’!  I feel like it’s been too long since I’ve gotten up here and thrown down some words – no esta bueno.  Regardless, I hope everybody is feeling fine and cruising through the week nice and steady.  We at Bassweight Society had quite an epic weekend.  Seven came through Santa Barbara to throw down at our monthly co-hosted with Santa Babylon and BOY did he throw down some heat.  Never have I seen Santa Barbara so amped on the deeper sounds, it was truly an amazing experience.  A club packed wall-to-wall just skanking to 4×4 tribal bassweight music is not something that our city is very accustomed to.  Gotta give one more shout to all the heads that rolled through and made the night what it was, WE LOVE YOU!    Bless up to the MC Hoodzpah and Sciphen for your support in the booth!  A massive shout is also owed to Mr. Seven for giving the people dem’ what they wanted to hear, and doing it inna’ proper fashion.  The Bassweight-Babylon connect is growing strong and hopefully we can keep this momentum going to keep bringing out these amazing artists.

Today we got a few different artists to showcase who have been tearing up the scene lately.  Bless up and enjoy the sounds 🙂

First to highlight is up-and-coming producer HyperColour.  Releasing his ‘Marvin’ EP just over a week ago with our friends at Inna Riddim Records, HyperColour is sure to be a producer that sticks around for a bit.  The EP contains three tunes, two of which stand out to me a lot.  The first one I want to mention is a track called ‘Fools Gold’.  This tune is definitely a big one for the ravers, bringing in classic 90’s style vocal samples, sirens, and quite the bouncy drum sequencing.  The shakers give it a nice jungle/breakbeat-esque atmosphere that keeps the feet moving and the big bassline keeps the soul warm.  The other tune off this EP that I wanted to point out is ‘No One Else’.  Again, HyperColour lacing your eardrums with some sexy pre-millenium house vocal cuts to set the vibes right for the dance.  The groove in this track is what really got me moving.  The intricate placement of the kick, snare, and hats respective to the walking bassline puts some love into your hips, keeping the vibes ill.  Have a listen for yourselves below…

This next bit is from the hand of, arguably, one of the best producers in the deep scene.  I’m sure it’s no secret to the BWS regulars that I love Killawatts music.  The man pushes boundaries, has magnificent production skills, and a work ethic that many producers can only dream of.  Tune after tune after tune, this guy.  His most recent upload to Soundcloud is a tune called ‘Foreign Accent’ and is definitely one for those with a proper sound at their dispense.  The sub-bass on this track will blow the hat right off your head.  Per standard, Matt brings crisp drums, unrivaled atmospherics, and intelligent progressions.  Would love to see a release on this one.

Killawatt – Foreign Accent

Up next is a tune in the 170 arena from the badmen behind the moniker Octane & DLR.  These guys are some of the sickest drum and bass producers around – and if you’ve heard ‘Red Tape’ you should know they can throw down a proper 140 beat, too.  This tune is forthcoming off their album titled ‘Method In The Madness’ due out on Dispatch Recordings, which is a 17-track project due out September 3rd, 2012.  The sample today is a track titled ‘Murmur’ and features co-production by Break.  A beautifully laced vocal intro that breaks into an energy-drenched stomper.  The control that these two exhibit over the bassline is top-notch, add that to Break’s arsenal of technique and skill – BLADOWW!

The final tunes for today are favorites of mine, no doubt!  I just recently discovered these guys a week or two ago via the badman Alex Pitts who runs AJP (If ya don’ know AJP, GET TO KNOW it here).  The UK duo, Blackwax, has taken on their own front in darker-electronic music.  I have yet to hear a tune of their that I don’t like!  The tunes that I want to highlight today are a bit old so some of you have probably already heard them but if there’s anybody out there like me who hasn’t heard their sound, I want to introduce them. First track is titled ‘Surface’ and is most definitely a tune I wish I had on wax this past Friday night.  One of the skankiest beats I’ve heard in a LONG minute!  I highly recommend making room to dance wherever you decide to listen to this one!!  The second track is called ‘Offkey’ and, again, blows my mind.  The percussion variation utilized in both of these track is f*cking mental.  There’s also a free tune below called ‘Trapped Dub’.  It’s a very recent giveaway through XLR8R (here).

In The Shadows Volume 1: Promise One

Ziiiiiingggg! What’s going on people.  We hope you had a great weekend.  Today is the start to a new series here at BWS, called ‘In The Shadows’.  The intent of this series is to highlight up-and-coming artists who represent the deep, dark, and minimal sounds that we love so much.  So, hopefully you guys/gals will receive the material with respect and enjoyment.

To start things off this week we have an artist who has adopted the monicker Promise One.  Coming out of North London, this 24 year old brings a really sick interpretation to the genre.  Originally captured by “dusty” hip-hop, as he puts it, he was introduced to dubstep in 2005 while at school in Leeds.  Instantly intrigued by the spacious and organic productions of Burial and Kode9, he quickly began to delve into the bass scene’s entirety.  As he had already been producing hip-hop under the name ‘Defiant Kinetics’ for a few years before his love for dubstep began, he had experience with programs such as Reason and Cubase.  So, we would imagine, the transition to dubstep production was just a bit easier than those who have never touched a DAW before.  His early influences are apparent in his rolling basslines and reverb-drenched, distant sounding synths.  His debut release was on Reboot Records (Boot09) back in mid 2011, containing the tracks ‘Dissonance’ and ‘Glyph’.  Both of the tunes are superb productions and we highly recommend purchasing them!  Take a listen below.

Promise One – Dissonance

Promise One – Glyph

With that release already under his belt, as well as a release on Sub Pressure Recordings, Promise One is back again with another set of masterpieces.  This one, released early this month, came out on Gamma Audio.  Both of the tunes on this release show the evolution of his sounds as well as his maturing production capabilities.    The A side, titled ‘Kilos’, emits growling basslines and very garage-like use of percussion.  The vocal processing on this tune perfectly mesh with the instrumental production laid down.  The B side is a track titled ‘Lowkey’ and is on a different vibe than the flip.  More of a half-step stomper, this tune slows things down a bit.  The synths in this tune truly capture your ears, and quite quickly if we may add. Again utilizing his garage approach to the percussion styling Lowkey brings a classic vibe to the modern era of music production.

Promise One is a man that you should definitely keep your eyes on as he will most certainly be climbing the ranks within the deep scene.  He really embodies the foundation-oriented approach that we here at Bassweight Society love.  Please check out the links below to purchase his latest release on Gamma Audio.  Either from Juno or from Beatport.  Make sure to visit his Facebook page and show the man the support he deserves.  Below you will also find the Soundcloud links to ‘Lowkey’ and ‘Kilos’.

Alright people, that’s the word for today.  Much respect to the readers that have been/continue to visit our website, it really means a lot to us.  2012 is the “year of the weight”, as the badman Cyrus put it in one of his Twitter posts last month.  So, together let’s bring the deep, dark, and minimal sounds to the United States.  We’re all about spreading soundsystem music to the heads.  See you next time.  Respect!

To the gods.

Straight Off The Block!

Wooooo!  We’re back with another batch of fresh beats today, so hope you guys enjoy them.  We have a few different artists that we are highlighting tonight, some known, and some not so well-known.  With that said, regardless of the artists current standing in the game, EVERY one of these tunes is huge!

The first tune that we have for you is one from the south London producer, Percept.  The tune, titled ‘Seclusion’, is an absolute slumper.  Overpowering sub hits come in clean and penetrate your chestplate indefinitely.  Definitely want to keep your eyes on this guys forthcoming progress.  The tune is available for free download, hosted exclusively on Hedmuk.  Visit the website and snag this one for your personal collection!  Download here.

Percept – Seclusion

.

The next two tunes come from another British producer who goes by the name Sorrow.  These tunes are a little bit different from the material that we typically highlight on here but, they are both just really amazing tunes.  The first one, titled ‘Street Warfare’ is a one of the cooler takes on the garage style we’ve heard lately.  Very techy bass chords come in quick and grab the attention of your ears.  The tune then progresses, with beautifully layered vocals filling your brainwaves with positive vibes.  This track is also a free download so take advantage of it and don’t forget to show love to Sorrow for giving this out to us!  The second track that we have for you, from Sorrow, is titled ‘Thinking of You” and is a collaboration with an artist who goes by the name Shura.  This is another tune filled with beautiful vocals, proper atmospherics, and feel-good vibes.  The drop at 1.29 can turn any bad day into a fresh start.  Mad respect from BWS to Sorrow!

Sorrow – Street Warfare

Sorrow & Shura – Thinking of You

.

The last two tunes that wanted to show ya’ll come from Om Unit.  They are both remixes that will be featured on a special edition 7″ release.  The first track, a remix of Daedelus – Vous Etes Stereo, is slower tune with one of the cleanest and sickest sounding snares to guide your steps.  The second tune is a remix of Om’Mas Keith – Girl Is A Player.  This is a sick dance floor tune that has some real nice vocals for the ladies to groove down to and a heavy-hitting sub for all the heads to compromise with ;).  Take a listen!

Om Unit – L.A Refixes

.

Show your love to the artists, spread the love to others, and keep on pushing that deep sound that we here at Bassweight Society love so much!  Mad respect goes out to all of our readers that have been supporting us and spreading the word about what we do here at BWS.  Stay true to your roots and don’t forget to take a step back every now and then to appreciate all the beauty that surround us each day.

One love.
