Depakote - The Gummo Album

This doesn't officially drop till next month via Highpoint Lowlife, but you can grab it now. Depakote's last set "It Ain't '94 Anymore" dropped just at the close of 2009 and was probably one of the best instrumental hip hop albums of that year. I've certainly played it a vast amount. This new album is heavily influence by Harmony Korine's film "Gummo" from which it draws it's title and a slightly darker vibe than its predecessor.

Stand out track for me is "Lilykoranic", but the whole album is solid and did I mention free, so grab a copy below.

Krazy Baldhead – The 4th Movement (The Glitch Mob Remix)

"Among the The Glitch Mob's material from the live performances on their Drink the Sea Tour is the band's remix of French electro producer Krazy Baldhead's "The 4th Movement." At nearly 9 minutes long, this reconfiguration takes the listener on a winding ride of pounding basslines, unexpected sounds, and thick drum sequences."

Diego Bernal - "Besides​.​.​.​"

Diego Bernal's 2009 set For Corners was one of my favourite albums of 2009. What's more it was totally free to download. His new set Besides​.​.​.​ has hit the web and once again his samples draw on dusty untapped south Texas crates, however unlike For Corners this album is maybe a little more instrumental hip hop in the vain of Shadow than it is Dilla. That's not a bad thing though and once again its on heavy rotation in my home. Another great bit of work from the "Civil rights attorney by day and beat producer by night".

Depakote – It Ain’t ‘94 Anymore

 

"The 14 tracks chop and dice samples from classic soul and funk, riding atop some amazingly dirty beat constructions and rude synths, to create a mixtape that flows effortlessly, fusing classic elements with modern production techniques and a fresh attitude."

Bassnectar

In 2004, NASA made the almost impossibly beautiful move of transmitting what happens to be my favourite song, The Pixies' Where Is My Mind, to 'wake up' the Mars rover, Spirit. And now, in 2010, Bassnectar is waking up the minds of Earth-dwelling music-heads with his reworking of the 1988 alt rock classic. Dropping on last year's Cozza Frenzy tour, Bassnectar's remix updates The Pixies' own haunting lyricism and moody riff with some club-friendly heavy beats and bass.

If you pop on over to Bassnectar's Select Kutz you can get yourself the download for free, or if you're a DJ wondering Where Is My Instrumental, well, wonder no more, for the titular set piece itself is also residing with the kutz of greater selectivity.

Bassnectar - Cozza Frenzy

Somehow I missed the email with a couple of free downloads from Bassnectar who's album Cozza Frenzy dropped recently. Anyway to use the old saying better late than never. If you don't have the album here's a couple of superb MP3's for you to download. The title track and a remix of Fever Ray's excellent  When I Grow Up.

Cozza Frenzy, an amalgamation of sound combining dubstep, electro, hip hop, and all styles of dirty digital bass-heavy music and smashing it all into a collision of wobbling, intense basslines and hypnotic hide-and-seek adventures. The album, 3 years in the making, is out now at music.bassnectar.net as well as all online retailers. The 15-track collection features collaborations with artists such as Fever Ray, Zumbi of Zion I, Mr. Projectile, and Capital J. Hard copy CDs hit store shelves on October 26th with remix and DJ Tool collection packs to follow.

Bassnectar - Land Of Lupes

I took the beat of a long-overdue unreleased tune called “Stretch Reflex” and melted it together with the synths and melodies from another song that was supposed to be on Underground Communication, but ended up getting saved for later. It was written as a pensive homage to the dead, the original melodics sound like a black metal song but in this version they have kind of a nice 1990’s Orb or FSOL feel to them…that sound will never get old for me! Then i took some of the prettier melodies from that song and mixed them with a Lupe Fiasco acapella (i looooove his voice) and it became one of my favorite tunes to close a party with.

Diego Bernal - For Corners

"For Corners is the first full length album from Diego Bernal, a civil rights attorney and beatsmith, located in San Antonio, TX. For Corners is Diego Bernal's love letter to the music, cultures, era and people that nurtured him.

The music is dusty and layered with Latin soul, from the triumphant blasts of horns to the laid back groove of lowrider melodies. It is a call to return to the simplicity and integrity of hip-hop's best moment and an invitation to enjoy a slightly different kind of southern comfort. Not so much dirty south as directly south. The full album is a completely free download."
