Freebie Friday: Hernene – Rainy Dayz

tumblr_njfc5dvbXP1qjmmlpo1_500
If you’ve ever visited or lived in LA you’ll know how rare it is for us to get any rain at all through out the year. In light of the last day and 1/2 of gloomy weather and cold showers we picked a track title that truly fits the vibe.

Hernene, a Los Angeles based producer, delivered us a proper tune which was featured by XLR8R as a free download and we found it quite appropriate to share this with our fellow music lovers. The sound derives from what we would consider “true deep house” with a nice touch of jack-liftin beats (yes we just made it up) that gives you a sense of hope that the rain will soon fade to bring some normalcy back to the city of angels. Enjoy this fine cut and stay dry!

Free Download: Plastikman – EXhale (Sonar Live Mix)

Plastikman SONAR

Richie Hawtin will go down as one of the most influential visionaries of our generation. While there are many prolific artists that helped establish the scene, Richie Hawtin has played a major role in shaping the cultural and musical landscape that we live and breathe every day. From showcases at the Guggenheim to marathon sets world-wide, nothing is off limits for Mr. Hawtin.

His most recent endeavor manifests in the form of the CNTRL Tour in which he and fellow esteemed artists travel through the United States visiting college campuses spreading the good word about technology and techno culture. Tomorrow night marks the grand finale of the CNTRL 2015 Tour, and to honor this day we’re sharing the free download of his Plastikman EXhale recording live from Sonar 2014. EXhale is a truly minimal gem encompassing abstract sounds and textures, coming together to form one cohesive piece of electronic music.

The official CNTRL Closing Party will be taking place at the Hollywood Palladium with special guests Chris Liebing, Victor Calderone, Ean Golden, and Lee K. After a long tour across the United States we expect this one to end in grand fashion.

Freebie Friday: I’ll House You (Einzelkind Edit)

Sankeys banner

If you’ve been on a dance floor at all the past 10 years it’s highly probable that you’ve heard the iconic “I’ll house you” vocal sample. It’s one of the best dance floor vocal samples for a DJ to use at his/her discretion, and never fails in injecting feel good vibes to the party. For Freebie Friday today we share with you the jackin’ edit of I’ll House You by Einzelkind.

Einzelkind takes the original track from Jungle Brothers and turns it into a certified groover. Where the original utilized classic chord stabs, Einzelkind’s edit strips everything back relying heavily on a forceful and jackin hat groove. Between a deep saturated kick, the hats, and the iconic vocal sample you have all the ingredients for a perfect club track.

Enjoy the free download, and test it out on a dance floor near you this weekend.

Freebie Friday and EP Preview: PILO

PIlO Cover

The pilomotor reflex, most aptly known as goosebumps is exactly what happens when you listen to music that sends shivers down your spine. For Freebie Friday today we present a track from PILO in preparation for his forthcoming release on Boysnoize Records.

PILO has been consistently releasing truly original tracks from day one and his Forthcoming EP Sentimental Schematics is simply proof that he has no where to go but up. The featured track on the EP, Memory Loss, (which is to premier via Nest HQ) is the very definition of what makes PILO’s music so authentic. With a variation of resonating techno sounds, oscillated dissonance, and an earsplitting kick drum, it’s hard to believe one can actually turn such contrasting elements into such a melodic tune that still retains its sense of originality.

The entire EP will be available worldwide on Boysnoize Records April 20th. Grab your free download of User Image below, and preview Memory Loss from PILO’s new EP here.
