Holiday Bass Presents – Eleven Free Downloads


MusicI thought I’d hand out a bunch of treats for the holidays and new year that have been coming from all over the place.  All manner of dubstep and related music here.  Along with all the tracks in this post if you click the image it will take you to the “free tunes” tag, which is every post I’ve ever made with free music associated.  Get after that!  Mad respect to all people that put out tunes for free.

These two from Knowa KnowOne of the Muti music family are a taste of what’s to come from a new EP he’s putting out on 1320 early next year.  This is a new direction in dubstep with a little faster tempo and synths that harken back to the g-funk hiphop era.  Feeling these.

Knowa KnowOne ft Sleepyhead – Killa Tune

Drake & Lil Wayne – Forever (Knowa KnowOne’s Thugstep Remix)

Next up we have more in the thugstep or hiphop remix vein from DJ Solo of the Soul Assassins crew, with first an entire pack of remixes he’s done.  This is a compilation of unmixed tunes, not all dubstep, but some serious jams inside.  Solo was kind enough to include two more mashups/remixes including MIA and the “first ever Polka-step track.”  Get on it!

DJ Solo – My MPC Is a Pipe Bomb (compilation)

Boys In The Basement (DJ SOLO RMX) – DJ SOLO x Reso x MIA

Kiss Me I’m Polish (DJ SOLO REMIX) – DJ SOLO

Along with all this thugstep I should definitely mention this recent mixtape from DJ Cable @ Rock the Dub that’s tops as far as this hiphop dubstep crossover goes.  Definitely get this one in your ears.

DJ Cable x Rock The Dub Fuck Thugstep Vol. 1

Now for some jazzy, 2steppy vibes from Cosmic Revenge in the form of an older tune that he’s put out for free.  Shuffly beats, deep basslines, and a nice sax riff make this one a big tune.

Cosmic Revenge – On The Block

Along similar lines I have to mention the Soundcloud of this cat Materielle from Urbana, Il where you can get no less than 8 tracks for free.  These highly recommended for fans of dark, minimal garage a la Burial, Kode9 and such.  I’m just going to link to his entire soundcloud, tons of free bits inside.

Materielle on Soundcloud

Now steppin in the harder direction with a free tune from Roommate and El Diablo out thanks to MalLabel.  Roommate just put out the Strong Vibes EP on MalLabel which you can grab here.  This is a five track release and MalLabel is putting out the El Diablo remix for free… freemix?

Roommate – Strong Vibes (El Diablo Remix)

Now for some futuristic sounds from Misk and Polyshufflez thanks to Big Up’s Dubs Friday series.  I don’t post most of the free tunes they put out, but am including this one to make sure people know about the quality releases that they send out every Friday.  Check these:

Big Up Dubs Friday (12/18 edition)

And the last one that I’m going to include is a bit older (all the way from the end of November oh my…) but something that I slept on.  This one, Dubsworth vs Bakir (aka the Spit Brothers) with a remix by DZ put out free thanks to Badman Press.  Scope the link with full info on all producers involved here, along with links to free Wav and MP3 downloads.

Dubsworth ft Bakir – Not the One (incl DZ Remix)

And that’s gonna do it for the free tunes for now!!!  Happy Holidays & New Year to everyone.  Look forward to the new year!!

Hotflush Podcast 06 ft Tommy Lexxus


Hotflush once again turns to a San Franciscan for their podcast, this time with Bassism records head Tommy Lexxus.  This mix is very diverse: deepness, hype tunes, some four on the floor, wobbles, reggae vibes and who knows what else.  Including the widely nominated tune of the year “Hyph Mngo” from Joy Orbison, fresh tunes from Von D, Scuba, some older Joker, and lots more.  Absolutely huge selections inside trust me, Lexxus is digging deep with this mix.
