This week's top ten free downloads is more eclectic than the previous playlists, but just as great. Explore this selection and expand your taste in music.
M.I.A., "Yala" (Falcons Remix)
I gave this track the top spot this week for a multitude of reasons. The intro, the bass, the beat, the vocals and because I knew this song had potential for a sweet rework and Falcons was bold enough to confirm that. Thanks for the free download.
Alt-J, "Breezeblocks" (Sebastian Carter Remix)
This was the song of the summer and hearing a rework brings back some fond memories. It also brings back plenty of unfavorable ones, but only because I jammed to it far too much. Grab the free download and get a taste of this relaxed remix.
The Weeknd, "Or Nah"
STWO did a remix of this song and it's also available for a free download, but I prefer the original. Plug your earphones in because this song is too dirty to blast in public and will make everyone around you feel extremely uncomfortable. Grab the free download and keep this one to yourself.
Schoolboy Q, "The Purge" (20syl Remix)
If you're not into rap or Schoolboy Q, you will be after hearing this unbelievable rework. Thank you, 20syl, for stripping this song bare and making it your own.
Galimatias & Joppe feat. GoldLink, "One Step Back"
I'm into this whole ambient rap hybrid thing going on. You get the catchy cool aspect of rap along with some sweet vibes. What's not to like?
Most people think this song is a Moby remix, but both actually stem from Vera Hall's "Trouble So Hard." It doesn't really matter though, the track bumps. Grab the free download and vibe with me.
Sam Smith, "Money On My Mind" (MisterWives Remix)
The original is pretty, the remix is pretty, everything about this song is pretty. This track is the outlier of this playlist, but I can't help my feels.
Fwdslxsh, "4 U"
Bump this after class, after work or after you just got into an explosive fight with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Set your issues aside and relax for a minute, they're not going anywhere.
Like I've said before, Cream Collective has yet to disappoint. I'm really feeling these ethnic synths that seem to be present in most of the trap tracks I've been hearing lately.
RL Grime & What So Not, "Tell Me"
Pretty much what I expected from a collaboration like this. Pretty solid.
