Free EP - Club 27 : celebrating great musicians who died at the age of 27

Really loving the re-makes of some great songs from very talented artists who left this world too soon. In the infamous 27 club, artists who are represented on this project are Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones.

This project was put together by Cheese N Onion, a talented production duo from Germany. They did remakes of Kurt Cobain, The Rolling Stones (Brian Jones) and The Doors (Jim Morrison). Other artists contributing to the project are Tyler Durden remaking Jimi Hendrix, Kinky T remaking Amy Winehouse and Cubus remixing Janis Joplin.

Here are all six songs in full. This is a free EP release, so you can download the songs individually via the SoundCloud widgets, or simply Click Here to download all 6 songs as a zip file.

We'll start off with "Love Me" the Jim Morrison tribute song - a re-imagining of "Love Me Two Times" by The Doors. This song is an amazing piece of deep house.

Next up is the Nirvana remake to honor Kurt Cobain. The song is called "As I Want You" - the Cheese N Onion take on the Nirvana classic "Come As You Are". With this one, they did a complete re-work, with a female vocalist instead of sampling Kurt's voice. I thought that odd at first, but the more I listened to the song, the more it grew on me. More of a straight up dance song, I think people will go nuts once they realize what the song is.

I've gotta go with Jimi Hendrix next. This version is called "Soul Of Voodoo" and is Tyler Durden's remake of "Voodoo Child". A nice funky house / tech house groover. I love how he teases and teases with the guitar licks, and then finally lets it take off after the breakdown.

Next up is "Pleased To Meet You", Cheese N Onions remake of "Sympathy For The Devil" by The Rolling Stones to honor Brian Jones. Another great house groove, making great use of the guitar and vocal parts from the original.

The Amy Winehouse tribute from DJ Kinky-T is called "No Good" and is a remake of "I'm No Good" with a deep house groove.

Closing out the collection is "Tomorrow Never Happens" the Cubus remake of "Ball and Chain" by Janis Joplin. This one is fun and has good energy. We get to hear Joplin's voice almost right away, and he allows it to really work with the track. This track to me is pretty versatile, and can be played with deep house, house and tech house sets.

Free EP from Think 2wice Records

Think 2wice has recently signed producer Andrew Sinclair to the label, and they will be releasing a full EP of his original material this winter. To build anticipation for that release, they have a single from him called "Nite Drift" and along with the original, they are also giving away 4 remixes of the track.

The original has a great chilled out uk garage vibe to it.

My favorite remix of the track is the one from Graintable. His beats work really well with the vibe of the original and slows it down a bit.

Other remixes also included in the free release are from Secret Sauce, Sigrah, and Don Valdez. The Secret Sauce and Don Valdez versions are in the moombahton realm. The Sigrah remix sounds like a trap version.

Brunetto to release License to Beat EP on Irregular label - free remix from Pulshar

The EP is not going to be released until some time in November, but I wanted to get this in your hands now because it is so good. The original version is an epic journey of electronic sounds in the downtempo / midtempo range of things.

The Pulshar remix takes the track to the next level. A beautiful piece of electronic music with plenty of bass. DJs take note - grab the download now - it's a high quality download (WAV file) and may be limited to the first 100 people to grab it via the SoundCloud widget.

New EP from Zed Bias out September 24th on Digital Soundboy

Zed Bias has been making a variety of music in the broken beat / uk garage / bass genres for many years. His new release is a like a breath of fresh air compared to all the gimmick laden dubstep garbage that is everywhere.

The title track is a really fun groove with lots of movement:

I've also got a full streaming preview of "Hurting Me" which is a great vocal track which has a stripped down garage vibe to it.
