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!!

Blackboard Jungle: From Dub to Dubstep (Lee Perry & Jahdan Minidocumentary)


Subatomic Sound brings us this excellent minidocumentary about the evolution of Dub to Dubstep music, focusing on Lee Perry and Jahdan Blakkamoore. Lee “Scratch” Perry is a legend among dub producers and has always been known to push the boundaries of music, consistently bringing new electronic elements into his sound of dub.  It’s not surprising that he started making Dubstep given this since it’s the next evolution of sound.  This documentary traces the roots of Lee Perry’s dubstep sounds and focuses on some fresh developments, with excellent live concert footage and a short interview with Rusko. Featured on vocals are the stylings of Jahdan Blakkamoore.  Subatomic Sound sums it up:

1973, Jamaica.  2009, to the world!  The story of the seminal dub album “Blackboard Jungle” from Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby that was cornerstone of the dub music craze that would extend around the world.  In 2009 Vienna’s dub masters Dubblestandart called on Perry to revisit the vibes.  This collaboration stretched around the globe to involve New York City’s dub scientists Subatomic Sound System & rising reggae vocal talent Jahdan Blakkamoore, and resulted in the first ever original dubstep tunes from Lee Scratch Perry plus a journey back into the Blackboard Jungle!

Lee Perry has now put out a number of excellent dubstep tunes and has worked with many producers including Kode 9:

Dubwise version of Max Romeo’s - Chase the Devil (produced by the Upsetters), redubbed by Lee Perry, Dubblestandart and G Corp:

And the featured tune of the documentary ‘Blackboard Jungle’ with Jahdan Blakkmoore and the Subatomic Sound System:
