Free Tune - Ramstein "Du Hast" Bombs Away Bootleg

We're switching things up a little bit today with something a little more on the Electro House side. My taste in music is about as varied it is for food and I eat just about everything. I like tunas from raw and rugged Drum & Bass to soulful vocal House, and from Pink Floyd, to Type O Negative to Simon and Garfunkel and everything in-between. Although, you can keep your country music ;) Anyway, my point is I try to keep things interesting here on the blog and today we've got something with a bit of Dirty Loud flavor to it. I'm sure the majority of you lot out there remember the strangely popular one hit wonder from Ramstein "Du Hast". Trying to find another song like that in pop music is not going to be an easy task but this one managed to have its day and as a teen at the time, I was singing "You hate me" myself for sure! So when I saw the name "Ramstein" as I was digging through Soundcloud, I had to stop and check it out. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised as the Bombs Away boys from Australia have done a fine job taking a menacing tune and turning it into something fun, banging and club worthy. Consisting of three Aussies, each of the guys has a musical background that brings a unique element to their shows. Thomas Hart was the kid that never shut up, a B Boy from the age of 13 under the alias Orpheous earned him the crown of many beat boxing, MC championships before moving on to production and rocking Beatport's Top100 as Thomas Hart. Sketch's influence comes from playing guitar (badly) in a plethora of (crappy) Rock & Punk bands then moving on to DJing hoping he could actually be good at something, taking out #53 Nationally in the ITM DJ POLL along with BEST ELECTRO DJ in the PD Music Awards. Jackness, the token Asian guy, studied classical music with years of violin training (but still can’t play it). As fate would have it, the three have come together and are putting forth some phat and chunky crowd pleasers. Check out their remix of Mike Posner's "Cooler Than Me" for a vocal wobbler. Today though we're talking about "Du Hast" which starts off with housey hats and a filtered Kick. Sixteen in and the business drops getting things moving. Twisted Tetris-esque synths stab in and out before revealing the tracks true intentions. Zippy leads and grooving bass come back but only for a moment only to dip right back out for another quick breakdown and then it's all goodness from there with little crunched up rock guitar licks keeping it spicy. You can't help but move to this one.

Free Stuff - Mr. Sofalumpkins aka T Power - Free Tune and Mix

We've got more free business up for grabs today. You know how they always tell you not to be a couch potato, well apparently being a Sofalumpkins is not nearly as bad. I know this because when you become a Sofalumpkins, you make banging Breakbeat music for the masses.
"He who they love. He who they fear. He who they cheer. He who they smear.Four shades of insanity for he who is dear.He who they love. He who they fear. He who they cheer. He who they smear.Defiant of age as a deviant of time, my favorite toy is still your mind."
But who could this man of mystery behind the jokers mask be? This bombardier of bass? Well it's Breaks & D&B pioneer T-Power having a bit of fun with a new alias. Granted I put in hours of detective work to bring you the inside scoops but you can also find out more about the mystifying Mr. Sofalumpkins on his website. The "Masquerade" EP is due out in November on all the digital sites but you can grab it now on the Genius Skills’ website and I can guarantee you it's chock full of good stuff. The first tune of the bunch is "Defender VIP" which starts out with a piano laden and eerie intro. Subfocus-like bass informs you this is not going to be your mama's music. Bouncy and Fidget-esque beats start things off with healthy doses of edits and sampling and Amen rolls on the eights. It then switches gears into an Electro Breaks groover with tons of funk in the trunk. Next up is "Hustler's Convention" Ft. Think Tank and the sign above the door says "Welcome Back to Funkytown"! Straight off you can feel the infectious vibe of this one with little vox and guitar stabs cutting through the punchy beat. A couple of disco edits and we're rockin out on the floor in a guerilla suit with a feather in our hat to the funked out old school vocals of Think Tank. Zappy bass and killer horns round things out. The third track in the EP is "Day The Funk Died" which starts off with wobbly and bendy bass quickly morphing into a Jazzy breakdown with a four string backing. Rounding things out is "12th Night" with its dubby bassline and techy beats. "Masquerade" is a solid package all the way around that I'm sure will be finding its way into the earholes of many. If it's free business you're after then check out Mr. Sofalumpkins Bootleg Mix of MIA's "Sunflowers". Cheeky vocals and Hip Hop drums mingle with rich sub frequencies for a short and sweet crowd pleaser. We've also got Mr. Sofalumpkins Dj Mix which is loaded with big riddim goodies like "Massive Flailing Retard" and the tough and catchy "Forgot About Dre" Bootleg. You can also check out a short video of Mr. Sofalumpkins rocking a crowd at Soundwave in 2009.

Free Tune - Micky Slim "Skank Out" Diistortiion Remix


 We're starting things off this week with a heavy stormer from another one of the many names coming out of Perth right now, Diistortiion. We have featured a couple other tunes from Diistortiion here on the Kick It Blog and this time he's passing on his remix of Micky Slim's "Skank Out". Surprise surprise, of all places, Micky is from the UK. 2006 was the year that Micky Slim really broke through and since then he has been keeping his nose to the grindstone with many projects including his own label, Bomb Squad Records. Tunes like "Blouse and Skirt" and "Do It" are bouncy and wobbly 4/4 bangers. Fun samples and loads of Fidget style sounds making for boisterous and lively tunas. "Skank Out" is Micky's most popular tune featuring Stupid Fresh & Virus Syndicate. It's a fantastic little track that's hit dancefloors near and far and Diistortiion turns it on it's head from fun 4/4 to rough and rugged Breakbeats! Using all of the original parts and some additional vocals, he gives "Skank Out" a proper heavy and grooving bassline. Clean drums and quick breakdowns keep things moving along nicely.Excellent stuff from the Oz native.

Free Tunes - Silent H - 7 Free Tracks!!

This week we are going to end things with a bang, or more like 7 of them to be exact. Silent H is coming at you from the UK and he is dropping bombs along the way! He's got a bunch of gigs coming up over there and if I were you, I'd get out to one and check him out. Silent H, Aka Thom Hodkinson, has been producing and Djing Electro since January of 2010. Based in the South East Thom has had Great success in such a short period of time. In just 6 months things have really taken off for him as he has played at Ministry of Sound as well as with Funtcase, Ashburner and Goli and Cookie Monster. With more big dates on the way including a gig with Nero, Andy C and Dj Hype, 2010 is looking like a stellar year for the Brit. Not to mention Silent H!'s remix of "Lace Up" is now available on Beatport. Starting things off with the freebies is the big bad "Africa". As soon as the beat kicks in on this one, you know you are about to have your ass kicked. The tough bassline drops in quickly and it's all business from here. Killer usage of the "Africa" sample breathes dynamism into the tune and keeps it pumping. When the Rock Guitar comes back in after the first breakdown people are going to be moshing on the dancefloor! Next up is "Beta-Blocker" Again you get an excellent sense of where things are headed right from the get go. The introduction sample is perfect and makes me smile every time I hear it. Big bad Breakbeats coupled with another heavy dose of guitar make for one heads up driving tune! The change-up on this one midway through is just awesome. "Salvation" maintains the Rock and Roll styling but turns down the BPMs and the amplitude. On the Trancier side of things, at least as far as Silent H's tunes go, it's still a heavy track that would be perfect for winding down a peak time set. You can listen to and download all seven of Silent H's tracks below.

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Aloe Blacc "I Need A Dollar" S&D Vs Toreba Breaks Edit

There's nothing I like more than giving you guys free stuff, hence why I focus on free content so much. The only thing better than giving you free stuff is giving you Exclusive free stuff! Well that's where we're at today and I've got one hot off the presses for you all. Sneaker & The Dryer and Toreba Spacedrift team up to bring you a fat and chunky rework of Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar". Meaty kicks and snappy snares start things off. Bits of Aloe's vocals start working their way in and you get hints of the new Electro bassline. The whole song has basically been reworked and the second breakdown goes down to half time and then stretches way out at the end fading out to silence before coming back in strong. Fun, funky, and fresh is the name of the game with this one. And the best part of all is you can only get it here. On another note, I will be changing formatting just a tad. All links will continue to be pink but links to download tracks or mixes will now be green. This should make it easier to distinguish the links to the music. Green means go baby!

New Release - KIR240 - Tactical Groove Orbit "Samourai/The Sun"

Tactical Groove Orbit come back once again with a furious breaks combo! Samouria sets the stage with a big dark Nu Skool banger complete with epic drums and ripping basslines throughout. As soon as the first beat drops you know this one is going to be colossal! Killer sampling give an almost cowboy/western feel to the breakdowns. Head into the shadows as this tune is sure to please your darker side! On the metaphoric flip side is "The Sun" continues with the peak time theme while turning up the funk and still keeping that big head down driving vibe. Clubby drums and stabs amalgamate with a super funky bassline. Tough half time breakdowns with hip hop vocals maintain the intensity and a killer build brings you into the thick of the things, think Pyramid "Wickedest Combination". Both are available now wherever you purchase your music!!


Wavewhore - "Proper tunes, good stuff!"

Mobius - "Both of these will be going in the bag but it's Samourai that will be seeing more plays from me I reckon. Nice stuff!"

 Jaden - "Samourai is a heavy banger, while The Sun is super funky. Not sure which I like more! Nice release."

Robin Steal - "Tactical Groove Orbit is back at it again with some serious business! Both of these tunes are awesome and will definitely be making their way into my sets."

Free Tune and Mix - Rennie Pilgrem "Dalek" and "Street Funk Mix"

Last up today we have some big business from the one like Rennie Pilgrem. The name Rennie Pilgrem is pretty much synonymous with Breakbeats and he is considered partially responsible for the creation of the Nu Skool Breaks genre. Before making the switch into Breaks, Rennie produced Techno and Acid House and was part of the influential rave group Rhythm Section along with Ellis Dee. Rennie is also the head and founder of Thursday Club Recordings aka TCR, a label which he founded in 1993. Rennie Pilgrem is set to release “Street Legal 2" on TCR and being the ever so generous fella that he is he has offered up some goodies for you lot in preparation. First up he is giving away the vocal version of Rennie's "Dalek". Super funky beats integrate with lyrics from Evie Eve and Jadakiss. Killer stabs and old school bass make for one quirky, fun and feel good Breakbeat tuna. Next up we've got Rennie's "Street Funk Mix". If you like your funk as much as I do then this mix is going to be sexual chocolate for you. As the name implies get ready to take it back to the old school and get completely funktified. Think Shaft and Isaac Hayes with a Nu Skool twist. The Bush Doctors "Ghost" with the "there's a ghost in my house" vocal sample just plain jams and the horns and drums of "Grasshoppa" rock my socks. Fire up a phat one and sit back and enjoy the sounds of Rennie Pilgrem. This is an awesome listening mix!

Street Legal 2 (another double EP) rolls with dub, blues, and even Jazz influences underpinned by Rennie's love of tough beats. Plenty of dancefloor but some tracks are more for your ears than your feet. After the success of Street legal 1 which won fans from pirate stations as well as Radio 1 and Kiss et al. The funk is currently keeping Rennie pretty busy. He's just finishing scoring his first film which includes plenty of 70's influences plus he's remixed Caper's forthcoming single 'Something Else' for Distinctive. Also as one half of the Bush Doctors (with Jem Stone )he's remixed the CB's next Single 'The Finding'.

Free Tune - Aloe Blacc "I Need a Dollar" Killabits Vs Paranoid Androidz ReRub

If you're hurting for a good dose of Soul, look no farther, I've got what you need! The Paranoid Androidz take on the Killabits' Remix of Aloe Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" and give it a proper rubbing. Aloe Blacc is an American Soul singer, rapper, and musician. His first album, entitled Shine Through, was released by Stones Throw Records in 2006. He began his career in 1995 as an MC in an indie Rap group called Emanon. By the late 90's, Blacc was a "stow away" on a Lootpack tour in Europe. His music contains elements of jazz, R&B, Soul, and Hip Hop, all blended together with excellence. He recorded a cover version of the John Legend song "Ordinary People" entitled "Gente Ordinaria" which was widely popular. Aloe Blacc's hit single "I Need a Dollar" is the intro song for the HBO show "How to Make it in America" and has been remixed many times over. He is also working on a new album entitled "Good Things" set to be released in just a few days on September 14th. The Killabits are a Dub, Electro and Drum & Bass act out of Toronto Canada. They put a Dubstep twist on Blacc's "I Need a Dollar" and now the boys from Paranoid Androidz have gone and made into a Breakbeat/Dubstep crossover. The tune starts off with the killer piano from the original and then animated D&B-esque breaks kick things into gear. The first breakdown drops on Aloe's awesome vocals and more of that deep piano. The pained bassline fits perfectly with the vocals then switching it up for some wobble to keep it interesting. Who doesn't need a dollar right now? You can cop some more freebies on the Paranoid Androidz Soundcloud page.

Free Tune - Steve Angelo "KNAS" Sychosis ReRub

Next up we've got some Steve Angelo ReRub action. Born in Athens, Greece he later grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. Steve is a producer, label owner, and also is part of the trio known as the Swedish House Mafia. After starting out as a turntabilist, Steve moved on to become one of the well known names in the House music industry. Steve Angello really broke through with his remix of the Eurhythmics "Sweet Dreams" in late 2004. Since then he has exploded onto the house music scene and in 2007 his eternal club banger, a remix of Robin S' "Show Me Love" was released on Data Records. Also releasing under many aliases Steve has managed to rack up the hits like "Bodycrash" under the Buy Now moniker. In 2010 he released the dancefloor rocker "KNAS". Housey hats and bouncy beats start things off leading you to an immense build up that's guaranteed to get em high before dropping in on the killer wobbly bassline. Sychosis from San Francisco is more of a Breakbeat kind of guy and with releases on Vibrance Recordings and residencies with Love All-stars, NorCal Nights, and Audio Havoc he definitely has made a name for himself in a few short years. Sychosis did us all the kind favor of reworking "KNAS" into a Break for us all and then giving it out for free, excellent. He maintains the original integrity of the song while dropping a funky and chunky breakbeat over things. You can check out more free stuff from Sychosis on his Soundcloud page.

Free Tune - Stonewash Ft. Kyla "Undertow"

Yes yes have we got lots to cover today. You guys will be able to make a full set just out of this weeks tunes :) So let's not lolly gag and get down to the business! We are going to start things off with a real banger from one of Russia's top producers at the moment, Stonewash. Working with the likes of Vadim Shantor, Stepsine and Ill Eleven records, Stonewash is turning up the Breakbeat heat in the Russian Federation. Hailing from Koenigsberg which is surrounded by Poland and Lithuania, Stonewash began producing electronic music in 1998. In 2002 he released his first album - "11 Breakbeat Session". In 2003 Stonewash's released the very popular single "Tech Your Body" 2007 saw him sign a contract with the most popular Russian label, Stepsine Records. In October of that same year Stonewash & Hz released new Electro & Electro-House album entitled "Electro Monsterz". Presently Stonewash is working with many top artists and is expecting several vinyl and digital releases in the coming months. Today we have got Stonewash's "Undertow" Ft. Kyla. I am a fan of Kyla on lyrics, I have a couple of tunes with her laying down the vocals and they're always rocking. Right from the get go you can tell this is gonna be a proper tune. Heavy kicks and rave synths set the tone for some serious business time. A quick mixable intro drops you into Kyla's vocals and the bass comes creeping round. Tough bass advances things along without getting overly grimey. The main break eases things up a bit and gives the crowd a chance to get involved with a chanted chorus and D&B fills. When it all comes back the kids are gonna start screaming. Not only has Stonewash given this one away for free but he has also made available, for FREE, many of his previous tunes and they are all pretty rocking tracks. Links to everything can be found below.

Free Mix - Schema "A Day of Small Victories" Promo Mix

So, I apologize for the lack of content in the past few days. I've been on a bit of a brief holiday with my lady. I'm back in business though and we have got loads of good stuff to catch up on, so I'll make up for it in the coming days. We're going to start it off today with a kick ass mix coming at you from Schema. If you like tough basslines and badass Breakbeats then you're in luck today. Consisting of Mark Smith, Lee Davis, Sean Lamy and Lee Dorrington, the foursome known as Schema are based in Jersey, Channel Islands. Having formed in 2009, they have received support from some of the biggest names in the scene. Schema are founded on a burning desire to produce, play, and perform their own take of Breakbeat, Dubstep and Drum & Bass infusion! 2009 saw the guys introduced with a live appearance and guest mix on Jay Cunning's Breakbeat Sessions show on Kiss FM. This was followed later in the summer with a monstrous Dj slot on the Breaksday stage at the mighty Glade Festival, which went down as one of the highlights of the Nu Breed hosted Sunday event. After the raging success of the first 3 releases from Sub Slayers chief rocka, Jay Cunning is proud to present to you another four track monster EP from the Jersey Bad Boys Schema. Proceedings kick off with the jaw dropping "Rat Bastard", a tried and tested bass killa bad boy. It starts off with D&B like drums and a whining siren in the background coupled with some military style kicks and an excellent vocal sample from Jonny Depp circa "Fear and Loathing". All of these clues indicate the type of bassline business you are about to be purvey to. "Le Brocqout" see's Schema venturing into a Dubstep-breaks crossover with devastating effect. Eerie synths get things going for this bassline riddim. Tough bass stabs and wobbles with authority but the track maintains musicality throughout. "Turn Off The Lights" can only be described as an anthem pairing sensual vocals with relentless attitude. Crispy beats, D&B edits and grimey bass make for a monster tune. Finally and by no means least we have "Savage Henry" a tune for all the traditional Dubstep heads out there. Bringing some island flavor to the table, Schema have no problems making big, bad dubs either as this one will satisfy the raunchiest of dancefloors. All four of these tunes have been mixed down by Pyramid's Nicky D'Silva and mastered by Shane at Finyl Tweek so you know what that means! Schema's promo mix is off the chain as well. Featuring three of the tunes from the EP and a heap load of other bangers it's mixed deftly and maintains a smooth flow while slipping through multiple genres.

Free Tune - EXCLUSIVE - Kill the Noise Ft. Klever "Tuff as Nails Part 2" Sneaker & The Dryer Remix

Time to wrap up another week and we're doing it in style with another Exclusive for you. We love offering you stuff you can't get anywhere else here on the Kick It Blog so we're always cooking up remixes and edits that you can get your filthy little Breakbeat hands on. This time Sneaker & The Dryer put their touch on Kill the Noise and Klever's "Tuff as Nails Part 2". Thick kicks and punchy snares along with some rolling toms get things started and the first drop leaves you feeling like this might be a softer tune. As the sweep rises and the guitar kicks in you get a bit of a different sense of where this one might go and then BAM, its business time. Grimey leads and Klever stabs bring us to the next breakdown. Everything sucks out and it feels almost as if the music has stopped for a brief second until the synths start filtering back in. A chunky break is layered over the crescendo and then we're up and running again just like that. Lots of energy for about a minute and then back out for the final drop. This one has got lots of change ups throughout and keeps things interesting. Don't forget to head on over to the S&D boys waxdj page where you can download all of Sneaker & The Dryer's official mixes they have recorded over the years.

Forthcoming Release - Kick It Recordings #240 - Tactical Groove Orbit "Samourai" & "The Sun"

And the final order of business today is our next release coming out on Kick It. Tactical Groove Orbit is from France and he has had a couple of previous releases on Kick It including "Dragon's Hunt" which was a fierce tuna. This time he's back with a pair of monsters ready to kick some ass! First up is "Samourai" Killer bass and awesome sampling come together for a huge Breakbeat stormer. Tear-out perfection! This one is sure to hurt some people far and wide. Second we have "The Sun" and again TGO is bringing the serious business. A heavy bass riff, dope acid line, FTL-esque edits and cracking drums equal dancefloor destruction. Be on the lookout for both of these everywhere you buy your digital music available September 14th!

Free Tune - Joman "Epidemic" Sneaker & The Dryer Remix

Next up we've got another fresh one for you. VCR recently held a remix contest for Joman's "Epidemic" and I thought I'd take a stab at it. I didn't end up winning but I did at least get an honorable mention. It works for everyone here on the blog anyway because now I can give it out to you all for free. This one came out pretty dark and driving, I just let the pieces direct me where they want to go. Haunting vocals start things off after the drop and give it a fairly eerie feel. Driving bass pushes things along and then the vocals slowly start working in. There are plenty of cuts and edits to keep things interesting and ravey zips and zaps pick up the energy into the main breakdown. A big buildup drops into a time-stretched vocal and then it all comes back in hard. Just when you think things are winding down everything gets going again for one final crescendo! You can check out the winners and other runners-up on the VCR website.

Free Tune - Major Lazer "Pon de Floor" Stanton Warriors Re-Bounce Edit

Alright, well we've got lots to "cover" today and we're going to start it off with a real funky banger. This one is fresh off the presses as the Stantons just uploaded it about eight minutes ago :) I've got quite a few versions of "Pon de Floor" myself and it's always a fun sample to work into any set. The Stantons give this one a real nice twist. Classic SW beats start things off set with a hip hop vocal and you have no idea what's coming next and then bam, right in on the Major Lazer sample. Lots of edits and change-ups keep things fresh and moving.
