Free Tune Round Up New Year Edition

Here’s a collection of free music from various genres and a multitude of producers from the last few months. As always, you can click the little down arrow on each Soundcloud waveform to download the MP3.

Here’s Ill-esha’s “lovestep” edit of The Weeknd’s XO/The Host tune. I like the two-step break vibe of this and it’s more uptempo than the original, which isn’t one of my favorite cuts on the new album.

This is a drum-less, piano driven orchestral version of MJ Cole’s Red & Black. Rather out of the ordinary, but very nice. It’d make an awesome intro/outro to a mix.

I’ve mentioned the Decades duo on SB before because their Mo’Wax mix was awesome. They also do a ton of edits and reworks of more popular fare. This one is a snappy version of Ghostface Killah’s “Apollo Kids.”

Another from Decades…this time it’s a cover of Bill Wither’s “Use Me” by Esther Phillips. This is a soul/jazz/r&b tip.

IllSkillz aka D.Kay & Rawfull seem to release a freebie once a week. This time it’s a retro-synth driven dubstep track called Tracy Is On Fire.

HERE is a UK Garage remix of Blu Mar Ten’s “Believe Me” by Nixus. Sorry there is no preview, but the embedding is disabled on the track.

Here’s another remix of The Fugee’s Ready or Not…this time it’s dubstep. I don’t care for it, but it’s pretty damn popular.

Wow, here’s a mashup of Tears for Fears “Shout”, Motley Crue’s “Shout At The Devil”, and Bill Hick’s comedy routine in a little dubstep package. I like this.

Physic’s remix of Julian Marley’s “Boom Draw”…little too formulaic for me, but a well done tune none-the-less.

Tim Reaper’s “Untitled Happiness” that samples Brenda Russell’s “A Little Bit of Love”…really digging this.

Bay B Kane’s “Jungle Warriors” 2012 VIP
https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F32207988 Jungle Warriors (2012 VIP) – Bay B Kane [Free Download!!!] by Bay B Kane

“Like A Circle” is all over the place tempo wise. Bay B Kane lists it as downtempo jungle, but that seems kind of oxymoronic. It starts out on a very atmospheric vibe for a long time then drops into an amen for the last half. Different styles for sure.
