I don’t normally share a batch load of music in one post, but its been a bloomin good week for free music. If you follow my ramblings on twitter then you may already have many of the below links, but if not take a look and load up.
The ISO50 blog has just released the second free MP3 EP featuring some killer covers of Air, M83 and my favourite of the bunch, Snap’s Rhythm is a Dancer. “Mux Mool switches gears and takes this roller skating rink classic and runs it thru the arcade and struts down the street with it while saying hi to all the ladies, a definite head nodder for the underground collectors.” If you liked this then check out the first free MP3 EP, featuring covers of Stardust, Fleetwood Mac and MGMT.
Surfing on Steam continue to dish out the goodness and this week have picked a few beauties for SOS MIx 23. The mix features “moodier singles filed under the new genre known as “chillwave”, including Little Dragon, The Big Pink and Lusine.
Leading nicely on, this weeks FACT Mix 84 is a must. Lusine mixes up some delicious dub techno, trip-hop and ambient for this collectable podcast series. The mix features tracks from the man himself, Boards of Canada, Flying Lotus and Four Tet to name just a few. Be quick, this mix is only hosted for a limited time only.
That’s about 3 hours worth so far, and in set terms, you need a peak timer. And as always Echaskech are on hand to deliver. Check out their mix for Clash Magazine featuring an exclusive remix and tracks by Moderat, and Clubroot.
I was going to feature this as a ‘Soundcloud Favourite Track‘ but it’s a a mix, and i have to stay true to the title! ‘Lullaby’s for Thea’ by Paul Davies is a selection of ambient tracks that helped his daughter “chill whilst in her mummy’s tummy”. Ulrich Schnauss, Jon Hopkins and some additional textures and ideas of his own take pride of place within the hour long journey. Play below or visit his Soundcloud page.
And finally, apart from all of the above, Yagya (as featured on the last post) has been oozing into every day in one way or another. On the way to work, at work, home from work and going to sleep. So i was very pleased when the musical wisdom of shbadr pointed me in the direction of a Yagya live set from 2007. In our joint Yagya excitement we decided that September 15th be blessed as #yagyaday. Join us next year should you also get a little excited when discovering the Yagya beauty!
ISO50’s classic downtempo covers, the SOS ‘Chillwave’, Lusine’s fat ambient, Echaskech’s dubstep, Paul’s parental ambient classics and a Yagya live set. Enjoy your journey.
