Free Tune - Hatiras "Spaced Invader" Tim Healy Remix

Happy hump day everybody. The tunes are really flowing these past couple of weeks and we've got loads more good stuff in store for you. "Spaced Invader" originally came out back in 2000 I believe and man that shit was hot fire. I played that record in so many sets! Well it has been reworked for 2010 by all kinds of kick ass artists! Names like Hatiras himself, Malente, Olav Basoski, Nom De Strip and more. We are again today offering something a bit different with a Techno version of "Spaced Invaders" by the one Tim Healy. If you like playing different stuff in your Breaks sets or play full sets that aren't Breaks, than having a tune like this will suit you well. This is some proper main floor business with a big ass buildup dropping on the classic riff with some reggae vocals layered on top adding some Jamaican flavor to the drop. It then gets stretched way out before dropping back in on a bumping Techno beat as the vocals continue to twist and the synth line works its way back in. Check out all the remixes on the Hatiras website.

Free Tune - Marten Horger "Cakes" V2

Happy hump day one and all. Summer is in full effect and the skin is out. I heart summer but Marten Horger hearts "Cakes". Seeing as we did a little feature on Marten yesterday, I figured, why not post another tune from the man himself. More big-time business from the German mastermind is up for grabs for FREE! I'm not sure what Marten's fascination with "Cakes" is all about but I'm glad he made a track about it. Stomping bass and a simple break will work well on any floor. The breakdowns are great ending on the "I heart Cakes" vox and the second goes into triplets while building things way up and then dropping out on the vocal again. Hammer Aldar!

Free Tune - Jean Elan & Marten Horger "Serious" Marten Horger Edit

When not churning out Breaks tunes under his alias Boogie Army, you can find Marten Horger making banging tech, electro and broken beats production as a solo artist. Marten started his musical career at the age of 15 with a residency at Douala, one of south Germany’s most famous underground venues. Since then, Marten has spent years Djing alongside just about every major name in Germany as well as the international giants who have passed through the country. During this time he developed his unique style aptly titled, “For the People”, a blend of Breaks, Electro and Hip Hop. Marten has become famous for celebrating every party like it’s the last so his Dj Sets are more like little rock concerts, with Marten being all over the stage, partying even harder than the crowd itself!
In late 2008, Marten began a new Tech, Electro and Breakbeat project with the much famed Leeroy Thornhill (of the Prodigy) – SMASH HIFI! Their debut Single "Everything You Need" featured a world class music video and garnered kudos from all the big names in the scene.
Apart from being an artist himself, Marten runs Stamina Club which recently celebrated it’s 10th anniversary making it one of Europe’s longest running Monthly Breakbeat Nights. He also owns Stamina Agency which is the largest Artist Management Agency for Breakbeats in German speaking countries, taking care of almost all the big names in the business!
Marten himself has an extensive catalog of originals and remixes and today's track is a main room banger! When you can combine Electro and Breaks and do it right, it can be a beautiful thing. Marten puts together a "Serious" piece of business with thick punchy drums, electro bass, vocoded vocals and a synth laden trance breakdown for good measure. When it comes back in, it's guaranteed to get the people moving. As kind as Marten is, you can download it for free. Happy Tuesday!

Free Tune - John Dahlback "Hustle Up" Albin Myers Remix (Dj Ark Edit)

I trust all my peeps around the globe had a banger of a weekend! Today we've got an "approved burner" to Kick the week off and wet your appetites for tuneage. If you like working some Electrooo into your Nu Skool Breaks sets or you're an Electro guy (or girl), who enjoys when a breakbeat or two find their way into your sets, then "Hustle Up" the Ark Edit, is gonna do it for you! Albin Myers is from Sweden and in his short career with Joia Records he has made an impressive impact. His debut EP "Jump Up" has done exceptionally well with some kick ass tunes like "Jump" and "Da Da Da". Albin also works his magic on remixes like "Times Like These" and John Dahlback's "Hustle Up". Albin's version of "Hustle Up" is straight up chunky Electro House done right with an old school rave-trance breakdown to boot. Dj Ark kicks it in the arse and gets things moving, working a break into the mix and keeping it bangin. We've featured some of Ark's other edits and he's definitely one to watch out for.

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Bob Sinclair - I Feel For You - Robin Steal Breaks Edit

Well if another Exclusive track doesn’t properly finish off one solid week of music, I don't know what does! That's right everybody, three exclusives in a row with TJFX's Re-rack on Thursday, Farace's Edit on Friday and now another one you can't get anywhere else coming at you from Robin Steal. Robin slaps the taste out the house and brings it back broken. The original was always a favorite of mine so I'm partial to this one as well. Punchy snares and rolling kicks replace the standard 4/4 with edits abound and the breakdowns have all been reworked. Robin puts a fresh twist on a classic tune, increasing the energy while maintaining the overall vibe of the original. I can feel it, can you feel it?

Farace Friday - EXCLUSIVE - Free Tune - Rock Massive - You Know Why - PH Electro Mix (Farace Re-edit)

Yes yes yes, it's Farace Friday again my friends and you are the lucky ones! The Kick It team gives you one more reason to love your Friday's. How's about exclusive content from the one Farace! How about exclusive content two days in a row! I'd say that caps off a mighty fine week of tunes for the blog! If you have slacked on any of them, that is an injustice you have bestowed upon yourself. Doing things big like he always does, is the founder and head of Kick It Recordings, Farace. When it comes to mean edits, Farace never fails to deliver with high caliber firepower that annihilates dance floors and they just keep getting better! This week Farace adds his Midas touch to Rock Massive's "You Know Why" the PH Electro Mix. Rock Massive hails from Long Beach California. His first release "You Know Why" has taken the dance floors and charts by storm. The tune has got mad flavor and feeling with some dope synths. The vox has that classic feel to it and works perfectly with the modern bassline. There is also a kick ass vid to go along with it that I have posted below. Farace flips it on it's side and then..... GOOOOOAL! Taking the track from four to the floor to snappy and breaky in one fell swoop. The reworking, the sampling, and the edits, are all done just right. I'm loving this one, you know why!

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Wolfgang Gartner - Undertaker - TJFX Re-rack

Yes that's right everyone we've got another exclusive edit coming at you from the one TJFX! TJFX's re-racks have done excellent here on the Kick It Blog and I've been dropping them in my own sets as well! His "Ghost N Tingz" Re-rack is hot fire. The kids always go off when I drop it and it's still available for free here on the blog. This time he takes on the sounds of the one like Wolfgang Gartner. Wolfgang's tunes already have a glitchy style with mad edits. Definitely not boring and simple tunes. Well this is right up TJFX's alley as he loves to lay down the glitchiness himself. He comes through big-time on "Undertaker" rinsing the shit out of it and bringing the edits to the maximum while still keeping a good flow and the original energy of the track. If you're a fan of the original but want something different to drop then this one is for you! Make sure to tune in tonight from 8-10 pm EST (1-3am GMT) for the Shoe Skool Sessions with TJFX and Btz aka Sneaker & The Dryer!

Free Tune - Uppermost - Rox Sox - Ben Tomlinson Re-rub

Happy hump day friends and neighbors, I hope you all are well. Seeing as we have been on the harder side of things this week, I'm gonna roll with that. Today though it's an edgy Electro House and Breaks crossover. "Rox Sox" from Uppermost is originally straight up Electro House. Thankfully there are guys out there like Ben Tomlinson reworking the crap out of 4/4 tunes so they fit ever so nicely into a breaks set. Tomlinson does an excellent job bringing not only a broken beat to the table but injecting some extra needed energy for a Breaks set! Proper business.

Free Tune - White Papoo - Carnivore - Factorfunk Bootleg Remix

Alright, "I need everybody to report to the dancefloor", or so says White Papoo in his tune "Carnivore" Keeping with yesterday's harder edged theme we've got another big one up for grabs today. Filthy bass and machetes are the name of the game for this tune that borders on Drum & Breaks in my opinion. The original is a raucous D&B tune and Factorfunk brings the Breakbeat fire on this bootleg remix.

Free Tune - Celldweller - Switchback - Yreane Mix

So I try to do one post per day here on the Kick It Blog but sometimes life just gets in the way! Monday is back again faster than ever and I'm ready to roll with a bunch of good stuff for you guys this week. To make up for a lack of tuneage last week I'm dropping a big one today! Ripping through your speakers is Celldweller with "Switchback". Formed buy the multi-talented Klayton in Detroit Michigan, Celldweller is an electronic Rock project commonly described as a combination of Rock and Trance. Their tracks have frequently been featured in movies, trailers, television shows, and video games. Yreane steps up on the remix and lays down some serious Breakbeat business! Coming from the Russian Federation, it's no surprise that Yreane is bringing the rough and tough stylee to the table. "Switchback" is already an aggressive tune with distorted guitars and some screaming mixed with singing. Yreane does an excellent job of turning the song into a Tearout anthem complete with a driving bassline melded with the original guitar riffs.

Free Tune - Melleefresh & Deadmau5 - Cocktail Queen - Rel 1 Refix

Holy hump day Batman, it's June already! The Kick It blog is already 6 months old and we are just about to break 10,000 views. Thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word and I hope you are all enjoying the musical content as well as my attempt at keeping you all informed. On that note, let's talk about the tuna for today. "Cocktail Queen" is a massive Electro House track composed by Melleefresh and Deadmau5. Now there is probably not a whole lot that I need to say about Deadmau5. You know who he is and what he and his music are about, so let's move on. On the other hand, what do you know about Melleefresh the self proclaimed Club Bunny, Care Bear, and Disco Dance Diva. Wait, did you say Care Bear? Why yes I did, and in that case "self-proclaimed" would actually be in accurate because Melleefresh aka Melleny Melody, really was a Care Bear. Make that two Care Bears, Cheer Bear and Baby Tugs. That's your fun fact for today. Singer, songwriter, and performance artist Melleny Melody has been kicking ass and taking names for a long time. She was the founder of Play records in the 90s, a label devoted solely to the best in down and dirty dance music. She teamed with Spydabrown to explore more music genres like old school Jungle, Drum and Bass, Breakbeats, Techno and Hip Hop. Most recently Melleny formed a sub label, PlayDigital to get the electro music out digitally around the world which proved most successful. Mellany was recently nominated for a Juno Award with partner in crime deadmau5. You can find multiple dancefloor rockers from the two available wherever you buy your digital music. Rel 1 from Atlanta Georgia is quickly making a name for himself in the Breakbeat Community with a plethora of edits under his belt. He takes "Cocktail Queen" and reworks the four to the floor into a punchy break. Big ups to Rel 1 for making this one playable in a Breaks set and for giving it out for free!
