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.

Olie Bassweight FREEBIE!

Yo what up fam!  I usually like to take the weekends off from the site but I was contacted by Olie last night and I didn’t want to hold off until Monday for this one.  He has been generous enough to share this remix he recently did with us and all of his fans.

This jam is a soulful stepper riddim’.  Beautiful vocals and grooved out drum sequencing set the stage for a combination of hard-hitting sub frequencies and a piano riff that will hit home for anybody.

Enjoy the tune, big up Olie, and spread the sounds!  We will see you back tomorrow.

Vibration Lab Sets The Weekend Off Right

What’s going on bredren?!  That’s right, Friday is finally here – thank jah.  As Lowkey said yesterday it has been really hectic for all of us the past couple weeks with work, school, life, our own musical commitments, etc., so we apologize for the days that lacked posts.  We are doing our best to keep it in a daily fashion, though, so don’t hate 🙂

Today I wanted to highlight a feature that hit the shelves/web today.  It seemed the perfect compilation to set the weekend off with the right kind of vibes.  Hailing from the boys over at Vibration Lab, this EP is jam-packed full of proper Reggae vibes and includes remixes by some really amazing artists.  The EP, titled ‘Tribulation Time’, features vocals from a very prominent figure in Reggae/Dub history, Linval Thompson.  This guy has worked with Scratch Perry, and has produced albums for Eek-A-Mouse, Freddie McGregor, and The Wailing Souls (to name a few).  Not to mention that a lot of the Scientist’s early work was based off of Thompson’s sound.  A true legacy this man is.  But anyways, back to the EP:

The Vibration Lab originals are top-notch digi-dub productions.  You can feel the organic warmth of the old school dub styles, despite it’s digital composition (big up the sound crew for that!).  Thompson’s vocals are extremely uplifting and really hit deep in your soul.  The beat itself brings you back, man.  Closing my eyes I felt like I was sitting in a smoke filled room just smiling and looking around, seeing everyone else smiling and laughing with each other.  Really feeling these jams.

As for the remixes, I’m going to take straight from the press release because I think it is a perfect introduction for the artists involved:

“When it came time to figure out who we wanted to remix this project two names came to mind. First, RSD aka Rob Smith aka Smith & Mighty, who was an original inspiration for our sound and whose records like ‘Kingfisher’ ‘Forward Youth’ and ‘Jah Way’ showed us the possibilities. The other was an artist named Radikal Guru, who was also an early influence for Vibration Lab with tracks like ‘Rudeboy Skank/Kingston Town’ and ‘Strong Dub’.  We really felt blessed when they both agreed to do it and the results blew our mind! The significant thing about this project is that all the mixes have their own unique sound and all our outstanding! Next we found two Dub Stars of the future, Riddim Tuffa who have been blazing up the the scene with their special Digi-Dub style and fashion and the incredible Adam Prescott who has been remixing the likes of Mungos Hi-Fi and making dubs with Brother Culture and Daddy Freddy. “

.

All I have to add to this is that the interpretations of Radikal Guru and RSD are seriously unreal.  Take a listen for yourselves and YOU be the judge.

.

Like I said, this release hit the stores today, so make sure that you show some support to these guys.  Available in digital format and limited vinyl (500).  If you want the vinyl before anyone else shoot them an email direct at vibrationlabsound@gmail.com and order direct, using paypal.

Hope these tunes put a smile on your face like they did to mine.  May the vibes be strong this weekend, we’ll see you on Monday.

Massive shout to Vibration Lab, big up to Radikal Guru, one out to RSD, Adam Prescott and Riddim Tuffa.  All parties involved in this release deserve love.  A seriously big one.

To the gods.

Monday Recovery: Congi & Gantz, Sleeper, Quantum Soul & Linden, and Existance

Bless up all the readers.  Hope everyone had a dope weekend.  I was out in Joshua Tree, CA watching some of the most insane fire dancing I’ve ever seen.  Some people are straight up insane, it’s so awesome.  Needless to say, it was a really interesting experience.  Lot’s of fun.  But anyways, I got some really huge tracks lined up for tonight!

Gonna start things off today with a 170 tune that Quantum Soul alongside Linden have forthcoming.  This one has got some seriously mystical vibes to it.  Definitely one of my favorite 170 tracks that I’ve heard lately.

Quantum Soul & Linden – Tradition

.

Sleeper has honestly been on a non-stop production binge for the past 6 months, at least, and has served up a really dark, lost in space typed vibe on this one with some kick drums that send power through your entire body.  It’s only a very short clip unfortunately but hopefully we’ll see it get a release soon!

Sleeper – Shook

.

The badmen over at Innamind Recordings Congi and Gantz are back on the track together and they are bringing some extremely hard-hitting basslines, grooved out percussion sequences, and sexy ass vocals with them.  This new bit, called ‘Warrior’, is set to release May 5th on Innamind as part of the Cave Dance EP so make sure that you snag this one up on Saturday!  Massive shout to AJP for the upload, high quality is a standard at this point.

.

Gonna finish today off with another AJP upload, from an artist who has adopted to monicker Existance.  This track, called ‘Waking Life’, is a serious soul jam.  I would love to see this get a vinyl release because I would snag it up in a heartbeat!  Hold tight for the second drop, it’s too much!  Big up to Existance, I’ll be keeping my eyes on you.  Check out his other tunes on his Soundcloud below as well.  Free download business all over his page.

That’s all I got for today!  Tired and busy, life is killing me right now.

Weekly Selections: Seven, Lurka, Mella Dee

Big tings ladies and gents.  Happy to be checking in today, and selecting some biggies to hit the soundwaves for you.

First on deck we got Seven with a large release forthcoming.  Black Box is set to release his album Evolution, a 13 track journey through all of his newest soundscapes, in the near future.  He upped a teaser onto his Soundcloud to get us psyched for the release.  The tune titled ‘Morning Light’ featuring vocals by Alys B has a wicked atmospheric vocal intro that transitions into a heavy rock and roll type riddim.  Large party rocker no doubt.

Seven featuring Alys B – Morning Light – Evolution LP Black Box Records

.

Next I wanted to highlight my favorite record release of the week.  Dropping on Black Box sister label Box Clever, Lurka hits the buttons on this one extra deep.  With a large chubby wob intersected by sections of salt shaking snares, this one will really test your shoulder lean capabilities.  High grade tunnidge and lower level lurking results in a tune we absolutely big up.

Lurka – Forgotten Ones

Be sure to scope the record here:  Lurka – Forgotten Ones / Refresher

Keeping on the same vibe, I want to highlight a track set to release on stateside record label Slit Jockey Records.  The tune by a fella named Mella Dee is titled ‘Don’t Be Neesh’.  With the skipping snare pattern and rolling bass this one makes you rock about in your seat.  With support by the likes of Starkey, we’ll be sure to hear this one in circulation once it’s released on May 14th.

.

I’ll set you off for the day/night with some rasta riddims.  The next tune is one of high praise.  No major weight in this, but the vibe is right and I wanted to send you out on the right foot.  This one is sick and the words have serious blessing capabilities.  Enjoy!

Proud To Be Rasta

I’m happy I could provide you with a little break in your day.  Be sure to check this space tomorrow as we’ll have some tunes to send you into the weekend with a proper vibe!

Bless.
