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.

Biome – Two Way EP (BLACKBOX029)

 

Bless everybody.  Hope all is well with the fam’.  Today I wanted to take some time out to highlight the recent EP released by Biome.  As if this man has not been absolutely slaying bass bins for the past 6 months (at least), he has made his presence even more visible with this latest release on Black Box.  With one of the hardest sounds in the deeper side of the 140 arena, Biome has carved out his place like a force that cannot be reckoned with.  I have promoted much of his music within the time span of Bassweight Society’s existence and he is definitely one of my favorite producers.  This 4 Track 2 x 12″ release sees a more calm Biome (or at least that’s how I’ve perceived it) than his recent work with the Macabre Unit crew and his release on New Moon not too long ago – I find it very refreshing.  The Two Way EP is an excellent addition to the Black Box discography, holding true to the imprints sound.

Reality || Vinyl, Digital

This beat starts off with some beautiful atmospherics and quickly progresses into a pressure-ridden halfstep masterpiece.  The space utilized in between each bass element creates grooves that would cause a paraplegic to off his/her chair and straight mash the dance.  I was instantly hooked by the eerie pads used in the track and I’m sure each of you will find an element that tickles your fancy within this one.

Inner Mind || Vinyl, Digital

This tune embodies the “calm” Biome that I spoke of in the introduction of this feature.  Preceding this release I’ve seen Biome on very high-energy trend, utilizing extremely heavy tribal-styled percussion to keep the dance inna’ zone.  Inner Mind utilizes calming vocals, eyes down piano chords, and atmospherics that all equate to a brilliant work of art.  I find this tune to be extremely peaceful, and to be honest, thought-provoking.  I say thought-provoking because each time I play this one I can’t help but reminisce on past memories, analyze current situations, and just think.  I’m going to have to say that this is my persy off the EP.

Charged || Vinyl, Digital

In uniform with the calmer vibe of the EP, ‘Charged’ keeps the beat slow but the vibes large.  Biome’s unmatched ability to modulate growling basslines is apparent in this stomper as the tune is constantly interchanging between them.  The snare hit in this beat really makes me exaggerate my body movements as it is crisp in it’s strike and fades flawlessly, with just the right amount of reverb.

Two Way || Vinyl, Digital

To wrap up the release is ‘Two Way’.  This one is for the steppers!  A very clean and constant kick drum floods the sound field while an array of hats and snares compliment the grooves.  For some reason I picture a mad scientist frantically searching for a lost potion when I listen to this tune.  Haha, yeah, I’m weird.

Many of you have probably already purchased this but, if you haven’t, DO IT!  It’s available at all good record shops and online stores.  You can preview all of the tunes down below via the Black Box Soundcloud page.

To the gods.
