5 deep downloads [FREE]

In light of our upcoming deep event at little india, we’ve rounded up a few free downloads that define “deep”.

Listen below, and click the download on the right side of the songs below if you like 🙂

First up, here is a remix from Atlantic Connection, one of our favorite dnb artists, who flipped a hit song from the hottest rapper of 2012, Kendrick Lamar. Solid.

The 2nd comes from one of our very own artists, Rice the Beat Chef, whose music is the definition of deep (and also out there!). We’re still waiting on him to finish his album so we can do an album release party 😉

I just discovered this kid named Tim Reaper, a black teenager from London, who makes INCREDIBLE jungle music. Here’s a remix of Big Pun’s “Don’t Wanna Be A Player”. Check out his soundcloud page and dive in to his incredibly complex drum patterns.

This song sounds exactly as the title indicates. Instead of a beat, there is a clock ticking…..some very forward music by one of my favorite drum & bass artists who made this BOMB, maybe my favorite liquid tune of all time.

Finally. our beloved Makoto released one of his classic dubs for free – this incredible Michael Jackson remix that we all know and love. Scoop it up!

Rhythm, Love, & Blues – Valentines Mix by DJ Quest

Happy Valentines Day! I am happy to present my 1st ever mixtape – a mix of 30+ classic 1990s boom-bap r&b songs – from Aaliyah to Monica to Erykah to SWV to Mariah and more. Throw it on in the background and enjoy some time with your lady/man.

Rhythm, Love, & Blues – 90s R&B Mix by Jesse Warren on Mixcloud

Also be sure to check out the brand new Luvstep IV mix today.

Many thanks to Pramod for supporting this mixtape. You can pick up a free copy and Little India in Coco, Shekou, Nanshan, or Futian. Several more mixes in the months to come.

Hope you have a great V-Day!


Free Love Songs for Chinese V-Day

It feels good to download songs that are actually given away as opposed to ripping them off. So here’s a few free songs from some of our favorite artists. Many thanks for making them available! (Look for the “download” button in the upper right hand corner of each music player).

First, a nice 130bpm track from Makoto, whom we recently had here in Shenzhen. I like this new direction he’s going. And despite the title, it feels really good 🙂

Another case of a traditionally drum & bass artist making bass/dubstep music, here’s Atlantic Connection with a remix. Hopefully we’ll have this guy in Shenzhen soon!

Finally, pretty much every song on Artist Recording’s Soundcloud page is a free download. Tons of good dubstep and drum & bass. Highly recommended!

FREE ALBUM: Love Architect by Atlantic Connection

One of my favorite DJs – Atlantic Connection – whom we plan to bring to Shenzhen eventually, has a new album out on June 23rd. What’s more, he is offering it for FREE – but only until June 16th. Download it here while you can.

From an interview in KMag, he states:

I owe my fans! I’ve had a lot of people waiting on me for another album for a good couple years. I finally have something to give back, and say “thanks for hangin’ with me through all that!” So, I’ve decided to give away the album, in its entirety, until June 16th. Download it here. Please enjoy, share and tell people to purchase when it drops on June 19th.

Atlantic Connection makes beautiful, deep, soulful electronic music. Just like Makoto – everything from dnb to dubstep to future soul to moombahton, and more. He’s definitely got his own style and pushes the boundaries of electronic music. I play his songs all the time and can’t wait to have him play here in Shenzhen one day.

Preview the album below. Buy it here from iTunes if you miss the free download, and support this incredible artist!

FREE Summer Bassdrive Mix by DJ FU

In anticipation/celebration of the upcoming Dragon BASS Festival in Coco Park this weekend, here is a free mixtape for ya…

This is probably my favorite dnb mix of all time. I listen to it all the time and it never gets old; especially the first 8 tracks. DJ Fu is based in the UK where he is known as one of the best turntablists in the game. This mix is aptly named, and perfect for summer, with beautiful, lush, deep melodies and good vibes. Also stay tuned for a possible DJ Fu appearance in Shenzhen this summer!

DJ FU Summer Mix 2010 by DJ FU

Here is what Fu says about the mix:

“Caught up in the hype of summer I decided to do a summer mix. This mix is a collection of some unreleased tunes, some classics, some tunes you might not have heard before and tunes I don’t get to play out that much. Perfect for chilling in the park, at the beach or taking walks through sunny Oxford.”

Free Download: Luvstep 2 Mix

In anticipation of our upcoming prom party, here’s some romantic dubstep music for you to download. I’m not the biggest fan of dubstep, but it’s definitely one of my favorite mixes. If you’ve heard the original luvstep mix, then you know what to expect: beautiful female vocals, grinding basslines, and hauntingly beautiful melodies. Big ups to Dirty South Joe and Flufftronix for releasing this free mix on Valentines Day each year. Listen to this and get in the mood for the prom!
