Free Track - Gin Joints - For Tonight - Sneaker & The Dryer Vs Toreba Spacedrift Remix

Holy crap time flies sometimes, no make that all the time! We've got a whole bunch of free stuff to get out to you guys but sometimes it's just impossible to get a blog post in! I hope everybody had an awesome Christmas and is enjoying the holidays, we've got a little late Christmas present for you today so hit the download button and turn up your speakers! Today's tuna is a little something different as S&D and Toreba Spacedrift have teamed up to bring you a Broken House remix of Gin Joint's "For Tonight".

With his roots in the Swedish hip hop scene, Gin Joints was still in his teens when he started Djing and making music with rappers like Planet Asia, Grand Agent, Movits! and Young Ivy. A few years down the line, Gin Joints has moved on from his first compositions and turned to 80s Funk, Disco and Electro for inspiration.

To follow up on his very well received debut solo EP, "Know The Ledge", Gin Joints is introducing a brand new five track EP called "For Tonight". Released via Swedish label and party promoter Discotheque á la Carte, the EP includes three original tracks and two killer remixes of the title track by Neon Workout and Simon Frank.

Sneaker & The Dryer & Toreba Spacedrift have joined forces putting together an official remix of "For Tonight" that's available for free to help support the release. Big drums and lots of  fillers give this one plenty of funky flavor right from the get go. Heavy synths and Amens keep things interesting as you quickly land in the first break where Gin Joint's vocals start to make their way in. Chopped up beats and loads of edits will keep your feet moving and your head bobbing through the main section and the big leads on the main breakdown add to the drama. Maintaining the feel of the original while putting a whole new twist on it, S&D and Toreba turn out a wicked jammer that pumps from start to finish, grab it for Free!

Free Track - Freefire Vs Wolfgang Gartner - The Undertaker Was The Champ

Yes that's right everybody, we've opened up the Free tune faucet and the beats are steadily flowing. Today we've got another massive freebie for you coming by way of Freefire out of the UK.

The electronically charged duo known as Freefire have been taking dancefloors by storm with their no-nonsense raucous sound. Blending the worlds of Breakbeats and Electro House into their own unique format, Freefire have made waves with tunes like their remix of Fast Foot's "Race My Music" and their Re-Fix of "Hey Sexy Lady" which you can also grab for free on their Soundcloud page.

With tracks out on labels like Plasmapool, Sick Slaughterhouse and now Le Castle Vania's own imprint Always Never, things are just getting warmed up for these guys and they've well made the point today with "The Undertaker Was The Champ". Combining Wolfgang Gartner's "The Champ", "The Undertaker" and "The Way it Was", Freefire have put together a dancefloor smasher that will have Wolfgang fans going nuts.

Punchy and crunchy drums with tweaked out synth snips get the party started as the "Undertaker" synths make themselves more known and then it's time for a quick dropout into "The Way it Was". When it all comes back, people are going to have no idea WTF just happened and I'm not sure I even do! All I can say is the energy is through the roof and the editing is nuts, if you want to know more, grab it for yourselves!

Free Track - Utku S. - Dance Freak

Monday is back again and Christmas and the New Year are just that much closer!! Seeing as we only have seven days left until the big day, we're going to keep this week free tune orientated starting things off today with a big one coming at you from Utku S.!

With somewhere from 100 - 200 releases under his belt including chart toppers like "Stop It" and "Come Again" plus running two major labels in Tapestop Music and Ventuno Recordings, Turkey's Utku S. is a man on a mission! Signed to labels like Lot 49, Bug Eyed Recordings, Big Fish, Plasmapool and many more, his influences are reaching far and wide.

Utku gave out "Dance Freak" back around Thanksgiving but seeing as it's only gotten around 500 downloads so far, I figured quite a few of you may have missed out in it so we've got it for you below.

"Dance Freak" is pure banging Electro House business from start to finish. You get a synthy side-chained work in to set the mood which makes a short stop on big trance leads before a quick vocal solo and then it's Complextro time with crazy bass edits, huge wobbles, talking low ends and crazy zaps all making an appearance in the next sixteen bars before chilling things out just a tad with another round of Trancey bits and a clean and zappy bassline. The male and female vox are the stars of the main breakdown but there are plenty of strings there as well to keep things moving right along. Building things way up high and then finishing it off a slightly effected vocal solo, you know what's coming next, loads of low ends to give your woofers a workout! Grab it for free and then check out Utku S. on Beatport and Facebook.

Free Tune Friday - 2 Free Tracks

Ah yes it's that wonderful day known as Friday again, the weekend has arrived. We've got a pair of bangers on hand for you guys today to get things started in the right direction.

First up newcomer to Kick It, Jad Barrett aka Bureau has put together a slamming remix of "Sunday Standards" that has luscious melodies and wicked bass work, the perfect recipe for a dancefloor killer. Progressively building throughout the track, Jad's remix starts out on a softer note as you work your way into the first breakdown which does a nice job of picking up the intensity in a short time giving you an idea of where things are headed. Big wobbling low ends are the name of the game when the beat comes back around. After another short break, Jad slips in a sweet little dub section with a big snare roll before taking it back to the 4/4 action where things get even livelier with some crazy synth work, if you like big dirty business then this one is for you.

   Sunday Standards ( Jad Barrett Remix ) Out Soon on Saucy Trax Records ( Uk ) by JAd Barrett

Next up we have a free tuna coming at you from the ones like Felguk! "The Funky Drama" the Felguk Edit is one of their prized gems that they play in just about every shet and it always rocks the floor. This is an exclusive edit Felguk did but never released and now in the spirit of Christmas, you can unwrap this baby on your next crowd and watch it work it's magic. A bit of a wobbling beat starts this one off backed by a big sweep to take you into the breakdown where the vocoded vox start to filter their way in and then it's time for the super squeaky bass to do it's thing. Dashes of synths play in-between the lows and Hip Hop-ish vocal stabs provide some added funk to the mix. If you can't get people moving with this one you might be broken, I'm just saying. Have a great weekend everybody!

New Release - KIR263 - Memory Macine - Drive Time EP

Kick It Recordings switches gears for our next release with Memory Machine bringing us his "Drive Time" EP. Just released worldwide today it features four techy tunas that are perfect to drop the top to and let the groove drive with big synths and acid lines.

The title track for the EP “Drive Time” starts things off for us with hefty kicks and more LSD influenced synth work than you can shake a stick at. With big acid synths and massive indie style drums this one will hypnotize the crowd into a dirty frenzy!

The second track in the EP “Midnight” brings a bit of a darker feel and has a hint of Knight Rider tucked in there to lay down the deep grooves.

Third up is “No Reset” which maintains the overall vibe of the first two tracks, but brings in some added sexiness and a dash of Miami big room style!

Finishing things off is “Poolside” which goes perfectly with a Pina Colada in one hand and the hand of your lady in the other with its seductive vibe and island tones. Sunrise or sunset, this is the jam.

2 Free Mixes, New Release & Exclusive Interview - Rumblefish - Eyes In The Sky

Barry Ashworth & Will Hensel reignite their Rumblefish project along with Martin MY who joins them for their "Eyes In The Sky" release. Remixes come from Jerry C4, Polaroids, Medicine 8 & Snarephobe. The inimitable vocals of TK are featured on this single as well as on the 1st single Rumblefish released back in February. 

Barry & Will first put out an EP on Ugly Records a decade ago and since then Barry has obviously been busy being a Dub Pistol and Westway Records main man and leading the charge at clubs and festivals all around the world. Will in the meantime has been beavering away in west London studios under a variety of guises working on projects with The Chemical Brothers & Leftfield as well as The Dub Pistols. Martin, who has just joined Rumblefish, used to run two of Camden's most respected record shops as well as producing as one half of Move Ya & Steve Lavers, with their slew of releases on Audio Bug. More recently you will find him producing as one half of Dirty Tricks as well as Rumblefish. Keep your eyes in the skies.

The Dub Pistols was founded by Barry Ashworth (Resident Dj at Jade Jagger's Jezebel Loft Parties). Guest songwriters and vocalists have included Rodney P and Terry Hall. To date, they have released three studio albums one of which was through Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best label as well as contributing to numerous film soundtracks, including Blade II, Bad Company and Mystery Men. They have remixed tracks for the likes of Ian Brown, Limp Bizkit, The Crystal Method and Moby.

Showing us they know how to get things done and in serious fashion, Rumblefish have put together a wicked number with TK's vocals providing the icing on the cake. Live-like drums and low tones backed by heavily verbed vocal bits take you into the first drop where TK let's you know what's up. Big and beefy bass takes control when the beat comes back and it's time for a heads down workout that will have your feet moving and your hands clapping. Epic female bits provide a nice touch to the main breakdown which has a huge build that starts off with Amens and makes it's way into snares and kicks backed by a huge sweep for the final roll.

The Kick It 12 - Rumblefish Edition

1. – At what age did you first find yourself gravitating towards electronic music and who were some of the artists outside of Electronic music that influenced that?

Barry: I guess it would have been Kraftwerk when I was growing up. Outside of EDM, The Clash & The Specials.

Martin: Before I was into EDM I was into bands like Madness, The Jam, The Specials, The Squeeze until I was 18 or 19. I then started to listen to a lot of Hip Hop, Two Tone, Ska & Reggae. I would also  listen to bands like Soft Cell, The The, Talking Heads among others, not even really realising it was the electronic influences i was getting off on. Then along came Chicago House & albums like Acid Trax on Dj International, Jack Trax & House Hallucinates, I was sold immediately.

Will: My Dad had a pretty eclectic record collection, I heard these early blues musicans, I remember hearing Albert Ammons playing this deep pumping piano boogie on his old reel-to-reel tape. I got into all sorts... Cocteau Twins, Brian Eno, Led Zep, Hendrix. Pink Floyd's "On The Run" track, it was the first thing I ever heard with this sequencer bassline running through it. At 15 I would listen to Hip Hop, John Peel, I used to tape Colin Faver and Colin Dale on Kiss FM. I remember hearing the Orb for the first time on John Peel's show, inspiring stuff.

2. – What was your very first Album? How about CD?

Martin: The The "Soul Mining", CD?..The Squeeze.

Will: First CD I bought, "Doppelganger" by Curve.. Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld. The first electronic record I went out and bought was "Didgeridoo" by Aphex Twin...that EP with "Analogue Bubblebath" on it... First important album 'Dubnobasswithmyheadman' by Underworld... man I played that to death!

3. – How did you first get involved with the Electronic music culture and what was the first event that you attended?

Martin: After listening to a lot of Two Tone, Ska & Reggae in the 80’s I ended up working in a club in 1987 when Acid House was coming through. Acid house was banned at one point for causing trouble?… The fact was, no one was drinking alcohol anymore, just water for some strange reason. 1st event, M25 party, nothing like a convoy!

Barry: I went to Ibiza and in 87 listening to Alfredo in Amnesia blew my mind then came back to the UK and started hanging out there which is where I met so many DJ's and producers of the future.

Will: I sent a demo of some weird electronic musical experiments to an ad in the classifieds NME for a new label... To my surprise this guy told me he liked the House track I'd made and did I want to go and record it up in London, which of course I did. We went to Knowledge after the session I think it was Colin Dale playing.

4. – Where was your favorite gig that you have had to date?

Barry: Too many to pick 1, Bestival has always been special and Creamfields in Argentina was pretty crazy.

Martin: Lots to choose from but Sancho Panza at carnival & the random raves I played at in fields up & down the country in the late 80's, early 90's, which concluded with Castlemorten..they were fantastic! There was nothing like that feeling of freedom, love and unity...

Will: There was this one gig in Hong Kong many years ago, in another life...or we used to have these parties in a warehouse down in N15, one or two of those were pretty special for me.

5. - Who have you been most proud to play alongside?

Barry: Well I played on stage with Terry Hall of the Specials (My Favourite Band ever) with my band Dub Pistols and I've Dj'ed alongside Carl Cox (My Fav DJ of all time) at the old Zap Club in Brighton. It would be hard for me to top those 2

Martin: Colin Dale, Bushwacka.

6. - Where would you most like to play that you have not yet?

Barry: Brazil

Martin: Brazil as well, I played in Panama a while back and nearly made it to Carnival, didn’t work out unfortunately. It comes highly recommended.

Will: Japan

7. - What is your favorite tune you have released?

Martin: Move Ya & Steve Lavers – “Dopefreak”

8. - Who is your favorite EDM artist? How about outside of EDM?

Martin: The Prodigy, from teenagers bouncing around on a stage to one of the worlds biggest bands, hats off! Outside EDM, Santigold, Gentleman's Dub Club.

Barry: I think the best EDM artist of all time is Chemical Bros, they haven't ever made a bad record. Outside of EDM, I like Hollie Cook and Gentlemans Dub Club.

Will: Dangermouse....Blakroc, too many to mention

9. - Who are some artists you would like to collaborate with in the future?

Barry: Dub FX, Hollie Cook

Will: Dub FX for sure. Martina Topley Bird, just love her voice... Foreign Beggars are awesome.

10. - What is your preferred software for producing? Hardware?

Will: Software-- Ableton Live mostly although there are some things you can't do so easily.. tend to use it in conjunction with Logic for mixing...depends what we're doing. Hardware - I love my keyboards & faithful MS, I try to use as much analogue as possible.

11. - What life lessons has the music industry taught you?

Martin: It’s a fickle industry, try to be in it for the music first, money second.

Barry: Never give up anything you believe in!

Will: Put in the time and effort.. cos once you get it right it lasts forever.

12. - What does the future hold for Rumblefish?

Big big tings, keep your eyes to the skies!

Free Track, Mix and New Release - Sigma - Night & Day EP Part 2

Ah yes it's that fabulous day known as Friday and oh what a Friday it's going to be! If you're in the New England area, make sure to come out to Generations Saturday night to catch Sneaker & The Dryer along with a whole host of others like Hive, D-Star and Dara plus some wicked new visual madness that will be unveiled for the first time! The link to the event is below.

Today we have a plethora of stuff coming at you from the ones like Sigma. Starting things off, let's take a look at their latest offering on Life Recordings. Following up the recent success of Breakbeat Kaos and their recent EP featuring Dj Fresh, "Lassitude" plus their highly acclaimed "The Stand Tall" EP, Sigma return with a brand new EP on their own Life Recordings imprint entitled "Night & Day".

Hot off the heels of part one, the second half of "Night & Day" keeps the quality and energy high with two more killer tracks. Kicking things off is "Do You Love" (This Feeling), which is a seriously musical piece of Drum & Bass to blow your mind and move your body. Combining euphoric looping vocals and some amazing chord work, "Do You Love" is soulful production with a dancefloor edge done at its best. 

As if that wasn’t enough, the boys have commissioned two huge Dubstep remixes from Dub Police's Subscape and new kid on the block Infuze, watch your bass boxes people!

Taking things down a darker route for the final track of the release, "Loving Me" is one for the grimy heads. It’s not called the "Filthy Edit" for nothing! Kicking off with an intro that lulls you into a false sense of security with Amens and lush pads, it then drops into a nasty half time, break laden monster. This is bound to tear many a club system as it's dropped on the unsuspecting masses.

   Night & Day Radio Edit by sigmahq

Next up we have the wicked D&B and bassline business mix that Sigma did for Annie Nightingale. Consisting of 17 wicked tunas almost all of which are straight from them, the boys take you on a twenty-five minute journey through the world of Sigma.

New Release - KIR262 - Silverfilter - Manila Sound w Remixes by Kwerk, Botbass and Original Primate

Returning to Kick It with his first original on our label is the Philippines’ own Silverfilter and he brings us a Techy heads down Breakbeat banger that has a bit of an Electro edge to it. Out today worldwide, “Manila Sound” pairs big drums with heavy bass and twisted leads that steadily build until you reach the midpoint of the track where things really get busy bringing the energy right through the roof. The main breakdown is short and sweet and accentuates the warped synths for just a moment before getting right back to business.

First up on remix duties is the one like Kwerk who gives “Manila Sound” a funky twist and spices it up a bit with some added vocal snips. Super grooving beats as Kwerk is known for are backed by stabs and sweeps to bring you into the first breakdown where the signature lead from the original takes center stage. A quick break and then it’s time for the bass and Kwerk delivers the goods with a grungy and pulsing bassline that will have you moving in no time. Delicious drops and a wicked main breakdown complete the package in proper fashion.

Botbass is back again as well and he turns out a slamming Electro House remix of “Manila Sound” that is packed with a plethora of cuts and edits and has bleeps, blips and lasers talking more than a bunch of women when they get together, madness! The tune never lets up the whole way through so if you’re looking for something to hurt some people with, this one is for you.

Finishing things off Original Primate team up with Kick It for the first time to bring you’re their wicked Future Jungle remix of Silverfilter’s “Manila Sound”. Taking things in a whole new direction, Original Primate maintain the leads from the original but flip the track around for a 180 with tough and rugged drum work, progressively building synths and a dark and eerie main breakdown instructing you to “Let the music play”!

Free Track - Gentlemen Thieves - Grand Prix

What's up everybody, it's your favorite time again. No, not tea time.... free tuna time!! We've got a big one up for grabs today coming at you from up and comers Gentlemen Thieves who have a forthcoming EP that will be released for free. We've got the first track from the EP entitled "Grand Prix" for you and all you've got to do to download it is head on over to their Facebook page and give it a liking.

Hailing from Gotham City aka NYC, Gentlemen Thieves have knocked out a handful of kickin remixes, most of which you can grab from their Soundcloud page and now their stepping things up with the original business. "Grand Prix" starts out with heavy guitar riffs that lead into massive synth stabs and a big snare roll to drop you into the main event. Trancey leads compete with wobbling and twisting bass edits for the first few laps and then it's time for the main breakdown taking it back to the axe. Another snare roll and a massive low end bass rumble and then it's off to the finish line in style taking ya out with a killer dubby outro.
