More music for your ears! (and some events in Portland!)

I'd like to thank everyone for their patience. We have slowed down a bit since our big 100th post, but we are looking to pick up the pace again, starting with 7 free tracks in this post.

If you are in Portland, OR this Friday, we recommend you head over to Branx for Fubar 3, hosted by Pipedream. DJs include Kala, Mi'ka, Pipedream, Ryan Organ and Linoleum. Branx is located at 320 SE 2nd Avenue - the old B-Complex. It's a club, so 21+. I think the cover is $5. You'll hear a nice variety of music and the crowd at these parties is great!



Coming up next Friday, October 3rd, we bring you Techno Mayhem @ Pala. DJs George Holland and Jak from the SubSensory Record label will be joining Tronic on the decks to bang out the techno! Pala is at 105 NW 3rd Avenue in downtown Portland. Party goes from 9pm - late. No cover if you are in before 10pm, $5 after 10pm. 21+.

Also...we (Dancefloor Mayhem) are looking for a graphic designer to help us out. Someone who can also do web design would be awesome, but if you are just interested in digital design, that is fine. It's a non-paid, very part-time position, but we can hook you up with loads of free music and other goodies. If you are a student, we can also look into helping you get school credit if you are able to for a project such as this. Drop us a line if interested: dancefloormayhem @ gmail . com

Now for some music!!!



We'll start off with a homegrown producer, hailing from Southern Oregon - Joe Nemo. Joe is already well known in the NW for his production and DJ work, with releases on SubSensory Records, and should soon be known in the U.S. and beyond. He gave us a track called 'Headbangin' which we would like to share with you:

Joe Nemo - Headbangin' :: A techno track that continues to build and build with energy.








Be sure to visit Joe Nemo on MySpace.



Next up we have a remix of 'Hearts on Fire' by Cut Copy that was done by Clockwork.

Cut Copy - Hearts On Fire (Clockwork remix) :: This is a fun electro-tinged remix.








Be sure to visit Clockwork on MySpace.

Next up we have a remix of one of our favorite ladies - M.I.A. This time, Loud Party takes on Boyz and turns out a great version for the dancefloor action. Loud Party is a producer in L.A. who has also remixed Daft Punk and Gillete.

M.I.A. - Boyz (Loud Party remix) :: A great electro club version of this M.I.A. hit.








Be sure to check out other music from Loud Party on MySpace!

One of our favorite electro producers, Le Castle Vania, has made magic once again, this time by teaming up with Computer Club.

Le Castle Vania + Computer Club - The Messiah :: This track is a remake of a classic drum-n-bass anthem (Konflict - Messiah) that has been reworked into a high energy electro banger!

This next track is also related to Le Castle Vania, in that it is released on his label, Always Never. 'Twerk It' by Rrrump is one of the tracks on their first release. Rrrump is a group of DJs and producers from Atlanta.

Rrrump - Twerk It :: 'Twerk It' is a great electro house track that will get some asses shakin'!








Be sure to visit Rrrump on MySpace.

For the last two tracks, I have strayed a bit beyond what we normally do, but wanted to give you a couple of indie-dance tracks that I am enjoying.



First up is the original version of 'Repetition Kills You' by The Black Ghosts. The full single was just released yesterday, with remixes from RAC, Phones, Diplo, Laidback Luke, and Emperor Machine. The song itself is electro-pop glory in its finest and has guest vocals from Damon Albarn of Blur / Gorillaz.

We'll wrap things up with a new track from The Model. The Model is a producer from Philadelphia, and this track, 'What Does It Look Like I'm Doing"' is from the soon to be released album Physical.

The Model - What Does It Look Like I'm Doing? :: A fun electro-pop song, great for fans of Miss Kittin, Fischerspooner, etc.

Breaks, House and Electro Mayhem!



We are going to start off with a breakbeat track from one of the world's biggest names in breaks, Lee Coombs:

Lee Coombs - Out Of My Mind (unreleased breaks mix) :: Some breakbeat mayhem from one of the best!

Before he was one of the global leaders of the 'fidget house' movement, Bryan Cox was pumping out some serious bangin' house beats. Check out this classic track:

Wanted to share another dope electro remix by The Hydroz. This time they remake "It's That Beat" by Playdoe into an electro-bass stormer.

Try to Catch Bit Thief!



Bit Thief is an electronic / dance music producer from Missouri. He was kind enough to share some of his tracks with us, which I have featured below, including some daring re-works of Onyx and Donna Summer. Grab these free tracks now!

Bit Thief - Double Dare 3000 :: An original Bit Thief track, this one is a nice uptempo track with elements of techno, house, electro and breaks all rolled into one track with a great bassline.








Bit Thief - Simma Down Nah :: One of the best Donna Summer remakes / remixes I've heard. This track is a re-work of "Love to Love You Baby" by Donna Summer. Bit Thief does a great job of maintaining the original feel of the song. After the extended breakdown from the original version, we jump into a hectic sounding electro / party cut-up with some chopped vocal snippets and party horns.

Onyx vs. Bit Thief - Steel Toe Slam :: This one is an electro banger makeover for the hip-hop classic "Slam!" by Onyx. Another fun breakbeat breakdown that maintains the energy of the electro part of the track.

100 @ 100! Celebrating our milestone 100th post with 100 FREE tracks for you!

That's right, we have hit 100 posts just like that. The time has gone by fast, but I am very happy with the fact that it only took about six months to hit that milestone. We had our first post back in November 2007, but didn't really take off with momentum until February 2008.

In that short amount of time, Dancefloor Mayhem has worked hard to grow it's presence, which now includes a Last.FM group, a MySpace profile, a Facebook group, a weekly internet show broadcasting Sunday evenings on Techno.FM, and a monthly party @ Pala, in Portland, OR. We also moved from a blogspot url to our new home here @ DancefloorMayhem.com

We want to use this momentous occasion to show our love to our readers and to all of the artists / producers / remixers / DJs who have contributed the great music which they are kind enough to share. You did read the title of this post correctly - below you will find 100 free mp3s, simply sorted alphabetically, along with links to the artist's websites. Please enjoy the music, and show your love for the artists by visiting their sites and purchasing other music they produce.

We would like to ask one thing of you, and that is to please leave a comment at the bottom of the post and just let us know what some of your favorite songs are from this post so we can know what people are digging.

Enjoy the music, and don't forget to keep coming back...it's only going to get bigger and better from here!!! Thanks for your support!
