Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Robin Steal - Somebody's Rubbing Me

Here on the Kick It blog we love featuring exclusive stuff you just can't get anywhere else! This track fits that bill. Newcomer Robin Steal puts a hurtin on Rockwell's classic "Somebody's Watching Me from 1984. Featuring vocals from Michael Jackson on the chorus this track is not new to the remix bizz. Robin puts a serious twist on this version taking pieces from both the original and the remix by Mysto and Pizzi made famous by the Geico commercials of late. An added "hallucinating" vox works its way through the track intensifying the delusional feeling. Clean drums and a huge build-up are sure to rock the dancefloor with some tripped out 80's feel! Plus it's only available here, you're welcome!

Free Tune - Plump Djs - Be Good

Well if you like Breaks and you don't know who the Plump Djs are, you have some serious issues. The Plumps are on Breakbeat giant Finger Lickin Records and have had many a top tune as well as having won mulitple awards at Breakspoll including "Best Album" in 2009. With over 30 singles released, 4 albums, and multiple remixes, the Plump Djs are a force to be reckoned with in the world of Breakbeats. They have toured all over and rocked crowds far and wide including their home the UK, Germany, Japan, and the US.

Today we are bringing you a real funkster from the legends themselves. Slappy bass and chunky breaks give it that Plumps feel. The vocal sample comes from the 1985 hit single "I'll Be Good" from Rene & Angela. Always a fan of stuff like this, the Plumps take a cheesy song and make it dancefloor worthy and bring it into 2010 with proper authority!

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Psure & Psyon - Tough Case - Quadrat Beat Remix - (TJFX Re-Rack)

Making waves in 2010 is TJFX. The New England native has been playing all over with partner Btz as Sneaker & The Dryer. As of late he has been getting his feet real wet in the production department and knocking out some kickin originals as well as some peak time re-rubs. His rework of "Ghosts N Stuff" with Rob Swire available below has been downloaded over 250 times off this blog and he's getting support from some key players. He's got 4 original tunes available on his SoundCloud page but this one you can only get here on The Kick It Blog!

 Quadrat Beat mean serious business when it comes to making Breakbeats. I'm always keen to get my hands on anything I see there name on. Hailing from Bristol, these boys have that proper phat sound we all have come to love. Their remix of "Tough Case" is no exception! It's a freakin banging ass tune with driving bass and and chilling vocals. TJFX turns up the FX with some ridiculous edits and reworking. Need to have something different for WMC this year, this one definitely fits the bill.

Free Tunes & More

Happy monday Breakbeat bretheren. I apologize for missing a few days worth of posts. I will make up for it today! First off, let's talk about Breakspoll.

So, if you are over in the UK or heading to Breakspoll, make sure to get your butt over to Fabric and check out Farace while he's in town!!

New Release - J2K - The Way - Beatport Exclusive

Just out today as a Beatport Exclusive is J2K's "The Way". J2k does an excellent job of putting together a rolling club banger with this one. Zappy bass pulses in and out. The "Make you feel that way" vox is used sparingly, as to not be overdone. The half tempo breakdown in the middle is properly done. "On the flip" is the Tribal Funk Mix. Tribal drums are the focus of this mix with some sweet toms in there. This is a great tool to add to your kit! 

Free Tunes - Lucas Hart

Coming from Victoria, Canada we've got Lucas Hart. We try to provide a variety of music here on The Kick It Blog. Well, if you are looking for some more "Pop" remixes for your bag, check out Lucas' Soundcloud page. He's got 4 remixes up as well as 2 originals. "Because of You" has got a phat old school feel with a good "dose" of acid in there! Chunky rolling bass and some classic vox stabs fill it out.

Featured Artist - Rektchordz - Teck-funk Constuction Kit

Rektchordz is one of my favorite producers right now. When it comes to Tech-Funk, he is laying down the business!! He's part of U&A Records. Home to the likes of Elite Force, Meat Katie, Dopamine, and Zodiac Cartel and also keeps a solid tour schedule. I voted for his remix of "Daily Grind" for "Best Remix" for the 2010 Breakspoll Awards. I also brought him over to the US for his first time this past summer and it was well worth and also I was glad to have done it! Recently Rekt has completed a sample pack for Zenhiser. It's filled with all kinds of good stuff so make sure to pick this up for yourselves. Here is what Rektchordz himself  had to say about the process and the product.

"Last year I was approached by Zenhiser to put together a sample pack. Instantly I new that I wanted to bring more Tech-funk samples to the currently booming online sample collections. I went into it with an honest mind, with the goal of breaking things down into a realistic look into how I go about my Tech-funk productions. Every sound was made and processed to give it the contemporary Tech -funk feel and of course this covers a much wider spectrum than the genre specific sample kits. I hope you enjoy using these samples as much as I enjoyed creating them."

Free Tune - Backbeat Soundsystem - Daily Grind - Rektchordz Club Mix

Well as another week in 2010 comes to an end we are closing things out with a big freakin bang! Recently we featured a killer mix from Tech-funk master Rektchordz. Well, Rektchordz' sound has changed a bit over the years and he has not always made the same type of tunes as he predominantly does right now. That being said, the style of  his remix of "Daily Grind" is also different. I have been giving this tune heavy rotation for a couple of months now and it is also my favorite tune of the year!! The original version is a laid back Reggae track coming from Backbeat SoundSystem. Backbeat are a UK based band described as Live, Hip-Hop, D&B, Jazz & Breakbeat, Funky, Sexy, Party, Reggae. Thats quite a descriptive mouthful but their music is really killer stuff and Rektchordz takes "Daily Grind" and pumps it full of power and emotion the Nu Skool way. He takes an awesome tune and just kicks it into the next dimension! If you'd like to vote for this for "Best Remix" as I did, head over to the Breakspoll website, today is the last day for voting!

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Deadmau5 - "Ghosts N Whatever" - Robin Steal Pump Up Your Mau5e Re-Rub

Today we have another take on "Ghosts N Whatever" from Deadmau5. Robin Steal pumps up this jam with vocal samples from Technotronic's 1989 classic. The overall flow of the tune is maintained throughout the meat of the track but the breakdowns are total reworks. Stretching them out and addding some real glitch to them, the breakdowns are much more interesting. If you enjoy playing mixes that others don't have, then this one is definitely for you.

Free Mix - Hexadecimal - Acid Licks - Production Mix

Starting things off on this early Friday morning we have last night's guest mix from The Shoe Skool Sessions on NSB Radio. Hexadecimal was kind enough to provide us with his "Acid Licks" Ableton Production Mix.

Scott Reeder AKA Hexadecimal has been realeasing tracks since 2002. His first two remixes were picked up by James Zabiela and The Plumps. That's one way to get things moving in the right direction! He is also about to release a 14 track album and he won "Best Breakthrough Dj" at the 2007 International Breakspoll Awards.  Hexadecimal is a seriously determined fellow who owns in the studio as well as behind the decks. His Acid Licks mix we have here gives an excellent display of his capabilities rippin through 28 tracks in just under an hour. It's a well crafted mix that keeps a solid groove and builds steadily.

"When it comes to breaking the scene, Hexadecimal has proved his worth and then some, but with his unwavering determination at the helm, there’s no sitting back and basking in the glory. He sees this as still just the launch pad to a career doing what he loves best, and while the ‘to do’ list is always growing, the drive and passionate dedication of Hexadecimal tick all the boxes for success."

Hexadecimal's album Base 16 comes out on Distinctive Records on 10th May :)

Hexadecimal - Serious Action Feat Percydread + Dub Menace Mix [DISN188]
Release date - 22nd March 2010.

After the well received debut EP from the fast rising beat-meister Scott Reeder (AKA Hexadecimal) here comes single number 2, 'Serious Action'. Taken from his soon come debut album Base 16.

Not sure if there is a genre yet called Reggae Breaks or Dub Beats but if there was then this track would be there. The track features the sound-system styled vocals from the Nottingham-based troubadour Percy Dread. Possibly best known for fronting one of the UKs best loved roots reggae combos the Natural-Ites, Percy doesn’t stray far from his Rasta sensibilities and his poetic lyric melds with electronic beats with surprising aplomb.

On the flip Bristol newcomers 'Dub Menace' blur the lines between dubstep and UK Funky, dropping heavy basslines and low slung beats. Great things ahead surely for this west country pairing.

Free Tune - Sneaky Pimps - Spin Spin Saccharin - MYSL Rubber

Today's tasty treat comes from Move Ya & Steve Lavers. Adding some elastic action to The Sneaker Pimps' "Spin Spin Sugar", this re-rub gives some fresh flavor to a classic track. If you're not familair with the original you must have spent the last 13 years in a closet. Well, it's time to come out and see the world. Spin spin sugar, a sweet little break( no pun intended) is added along with some minor changes. Move Ya & Steve Lavers have been putting out quality tunes for over 5 years and I have more than one of their tracks in my collection including some on vinyl. They have had tracks featued by The Plumps, in a soundtrack to a Sci-Fi show, and "Rock Me" has been one of Audio Bug's biggest singles to date. Bring back the "old days" and remanisce a bit with this one!

Free Tune - Mr. Oizo - Sucer Danser - Kamei Remix

Happy Hump Day everybody!! I hope you are all having a good week so far. Spicing things up a bit today is Kamei's Remix of Mr Oizo's "Sucer Danser". I have been noticing a real trend of bangin music coming from the French recently! Can you say Dilemn for one. Granted they may seem a bit strange to me as an American ;) but hey, aren't we all. Mr Oizo doesn't not fall far from the tree. Quality music with an abstact style. Keeping himself busy in and out of the studio his marketing material is thought provoking to say the least. "Flat Beat" is pretty much a classic in my book at this point. "Sucer Danser" is not a peak time track originally but Kamei from Brazil sex it up with some Latin flavor and a groovy rolling bassline. Get em warmed up with this one.

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Dirty Loud - Disco Recordz - J2K Re-Fix

Brazilian duo Dirty Loud, are some talented new comers. Focusing mainly on Progressive/Electro House and Trance, their music pulls pieces from all genres. These two boys from south of the equator are laying down some serious beats. They have many originals like "Dirt", a rockish/proggy driving tune and "Disco Recordz", my personal favorite. This track has mad energy and some sweet zappy bass. The "I'm only dancing" vocal is cheeky but awesome at the same time and it gets stuck in my head for days at a time, yet I love it!! The sample work is phenomenal and the track never gets boring. A definte floor banger. Available only here on the Kick It Blog, we have the J2K Re-Fix. Check out Dirty Loud's Myspace for some more seriously banging tunes!!

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Deadmau5 Ft. Rob Swire - Ghosts N Stuff - TJFX Ghosts N Tings Re-Rack

Love him or hate him, Deadmau5 makes some pretty serious tunes. His "Ghosts and Stuff" has got to be the most remixed track of 2009! "Need a Ladder" makes awesome use of a Zelda sample and the change up in it is nasty. I also saw him LIVE at The Firestone in FL on my 30th birthday and it was a pretty bangin set! The version of "Ghosts & Stuff" we have here features some killer vocals from Rob Swire. TJFX, The Sneaker of S&D, rubs a little magic on this one and glitches it out a bit. You can't get this version anywhere else :)

Featured Artist - Diistortiion - AU

Today we are talking about Diistortiion, a personal favorite dj of mine. I first caught Diistortiion ripping it up on NSB Radio ( while I was at work one early Wednesday morning about 8am. Well he started my day off right that day and from then on, I made sure to catch his show whenever possible. Since then I have heard many of his radio shows, multiple mixes, and have played a number of his tracks myself. His "Sonic Clarity" mix was in my CD changer for at least a year and his remix of "Wicked" with Pendulum is ridiculous. He also does a sweet little rub of NAPT's "Get Back" with "Champion Sound" that will get any floor hoppin! His original tunes are also well done and have a home in my collection and have made their way into my sets on more than one occasion. Diistortiion's new mix "How I Roll" does not dissapoint with the first bit taking you on a breakbeat rocket warping you through tunes at light speed while a third of the way in it begins to take shape. It features some serious tuneage and is mixed properly. Another awesome mix that I will be playing for awhile to come. Diistortiion is a dj's dj in my opinion. You can get his mix and his NAPT Re-Rub below and a whole bunch more stuff on his Soundcloud page.

New Release - KIR232 - Lupo - Star Raging Havoc

Happy freakin Groundhog's Day fans of Kick It. For today we release Lupo's "Star Raging Havoc". This is a huge tuna people with killer remixes to boot!! Lupo delivers the goods with a funky big room track. The drums are super crisp and once it gets going she's an all out banger.
Access Denied are going to tear you a new earhole with their remix. This is one serious tune that will hurt some speakers for sure. Driving bass gives way to a super funky riff on the breakdown. Serious rolls and edits round out the package. Last but not least Dj Phunkae puts his signature jazzy feel on the track. Still a bangin tune with a more funky feel then the AD mix and plenty of bleeps and zaps to go around. Do not sleep on this release folks!!

Tom Llupa - "Look forward to dropping this"

Bass Reflections - "Lupo has really put together a great tune here. I am really loving this massive electro anthem! The edits, huge bass, and perfect synths really drive this tune from the first beat. This release slams from the top to the bottom and will have a spot in my DJ bag for years to come."

Free Tune - Sub Focus - Could This Be Real - Dane O Edit

Sub Focus is definitely the man of the hour  in D&B right now. A self taught producer, he has been producing since age 13. He's now been releasing tracks since 2003, on Frequency originally and Ram Records as of late. His tracks are pure fire, his gig schedule is insane, and everyone is remixing his tracks. So you knew it was only a matter of time before we had something of his rubbed for you. "Could This Be Real" gets an edit from Dane O. The original intro to the tune is really not going to work for most breaks sets. Low and behold, now you're in the clear. Mostly the original with a breakbeat layed over the intro it keeps all of the songs original feeling adding just a couple of edits for a bit of extra flavor. Stop, drop, and roll.

Free Tune - StarKillers - Bitch Ass Trick - Datadex Edit

Las Vegas' own StarKillers are "re-inventing progressive". Now whether or not that's true, they do have some cool tunes. Granted they are not going to fit in a breaks set for the most part, but that's what Re-Rubs are for. Say no more, I have just what you need. Datadex take StarKillers' "Bitch Ass Trick" and put a break on it. Now it's a solid breabeat tuna ready to roll. Put this in your pipe and smoke it :)
