Freebie Friday: Butch – From Above

Butch Live

Butch is an artist that needs little introduction. As a person he is lighthearted and comical, and when it comes down to the music his passion for life is evident. In preparation for his set tomorrow night at Minimal Effort, we’ve gone back into his archives and dug up a free download that he released from Area Remote Records two years ago.

Butch n Virginia’s From Above is a slick piece of emotive grooves and sonic subtleties that is perfect for the coming months. This particular track was out on Area Remote, but Butch has his catalog spread-out through a variety of labels such as Watergate, Bouq, Desolat, Cécille, and Cocoon, to name a few. From his releases to world tours, Butch consistently spreads positive vibes and music to everyone he encounters. Tomorrow night will be no exception.

Enjoy the free download of From Above, and make sure to catch him in Los Angeles tomorrow night at Minimal Effort.

Another Friday, another free track to start our weekend. Today the free downloads come courtesy of Maceo Plex, who will be taking the controls at Exchange LA this Saturday night. From running Ellum Audio to performing all over the world, making people move is one of his specialities.

With a pulsating bassline and ominous vocal, his remix of Chelsea Wolfe’s The Warden is the type of track that any fan of dance music can enjoy regardless of genre loyalty. On the contrary, Love Jam is a proper house number that will undoubtedly have you busting out your best dance moves.

Freebie Friday: Clovis

Body image

The calm before the storm. Tonight has been much anticipated for the past few weeks, and we are just hours away from WORK with Livio & Roby and Clovis with support from our own Jamie Charles and Jared Sanders. Last week we gave away two free Livio & Roby tracks, and today we offer up several free downloads from Los Angeles native, Clovis. You can listen and download the two tracks from the Soundcloud players below.

Guestlist and pre-sale tickets are still available through our website here: Tickets/Guestlist for WORK 02

 Clovis – Merwin

Merwin is a beautifully constructed track bridging the gap between an ambient soundscape and minimal. The drums have a very human feel, which is refreshing compared to many drum arrangements these days, and the pads and synths strike an emotional chord with each and every progression. A thought provoking sample rounds off this minimal masterpiece, and is a perfect track to enjoy before the heavier grooves commence on the dance floor tonight.

Clovis – Monk Enthusiast

Who doesn’t want a little jazz in their life? Monk Enthusiast is Clovis’ bootleg rendition of the 1936 classic Caravan with Thelonious Monk on piano. Taking original elements such as the piano and bass, he puts a more modern dance twist on it rearranging the drums to something more dance floor certified. While the original track Caravan was recorded in the mid 1900’s, it is reminiscent of tracks we enjoy today from artists like Guti. Enjoy this one and let’s take that bassline for a walk.

We look forward to our first event of the year tonight, and couldn’t be happier to have Clovis and Livio & Roby at the helm for the music selection. Enjoy these freebies, and the dance floor awaits. See you there!

Here are two free tracks that fulfill the pure Romanian style of house and techno.

Livio & Roby on: Facebook | Soundcloud | Resident Advisor

The first free download is Livio & Roby’s remix of The Hunted by Timo Maas. A hypnotic groover that holds it’s own in true Romanian fashion. Well-polished drums weave in and out of the production as the entrancing pads add that extra bit of cerebral warmth to the track. You can download this remix in the Soundcloud player above or go to the track here on Soundcloud.

The second free download is Livio & Roby’s collaboration with their good friend George G. Premiesku, as the trio is called, stays true to their roots delivering deep house grooves, and are notorious for their live sets using analog gear custom made to fit their style. Noococ is a house bomb that we can imagine being played to a vibrant Ibiza dance floor. Luckily for us, they’ll be bringing warm beats like this to King King next week for us to dance the night away.

Freebie Friday: Ruben Mandolini – My Mind

Garage Rising body

With releases on Snatch!, Terminal M, and Defected, Ruben Mandolini has a knack for releasing massive dance floor certified groove tracks. Back in November he released “Your Love”, a solid two track EP for Snatch Records, and also included an exclusive free download of a third original track.

My Mind has an infectious groove loaded with different drum rhythms and a chugging bassline sure to make an impact on the dance floor. With the addition of a guitar-ish sounding stab on the break, the arrangement feels complete and ready for action.

Snatch Records had another groove filled year with releasing artists such as Kaiserdisco, Pirupa, and Santos; expect more great releases from the crew this year. Also keep an eye out for Ruben Mandolini who is sure to have another great year representing Italian tech-house.

My Mind is available for free download via the Snatch Records Soundcloud.

Freebie Friday: Justin Martin

Justin Martin EXLAWhen it comes to high quality bass and house music, the Dirtybird crew can be considered master chefs. Luckily for us folks in Los Angeles, they’ve held down a residency this year at Exchange LA with many of their artists coming through to lay down dance floor heat. This Saturday the Dirtybird night includes Justin Martin, Jimmy Edgar, Justin Jay, and Christian Martin. We’re already more than excited, but here’s two free downloads from Justin Martin to help us get in the right mindset for the evening.

RSVP and pre-sale tickets are available on our Events tab.

Just imagining Justin Martin’s rework of Ultraista – Small Talk coming through the sound system at Exchange puts us in a good mood. It’s a fantastic bass heavy rework that has all the essential elements that give it that quintessential Dirtybird feel.

The second free download, Don’t Go (VIP) starts off with an ensemble of strings that rain down from the bass heavens. A beautiful compilation of strings only to fade into the deep bass and groove suited for the dance floor. The download is at the standard 320 bit rate, but head on over to the Dirtybird Drip.fm and there are some more goodies available there. (For a small subscription fee).

A big night ahead this Saturday for the Dirtybird takeover at Exchange. Enjoy these free downloads, and we’ll see you on the dance floor!
