Get the First Album by Beats Antique for Free

Posted in Album Download, Music News, News with tags , , , on Thursday, July 26, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

We haven’t put up any links to free music in a while so when Beats Antique made their first album available a couple a days ago, I figured it was worthy enough to put the word out. The belly dancing, Egyptian-Funk electronic group out of California really gives you a taste of what they are all about on their debut album. Follow this link to be thrown into a different world of sound on Tribal Derivations.

Album Download: Big K.R.I.T., 4Eva N A Day

Posted in Album Download with tags , , on Monday, March 5, 2012 by Tim Althaus

What a great day for Hip-Hop music; first the Soundset 2012 lineup is announced (which K.R.I.T. will be at), and then the Meridian, Mississippi phenom dropped some new material for the world to hear. 4Eva N A Day is a mix tape that I’ve been anticipating for quite some time now; I really didn’t get into Big K.R.I.T. at first, but once I really started to dig deeper, I instantly became a huge fan. The one thing that I really enjoy about K.R.I.T. is that he always puts out original music. K.R.I.T’s mix tapes contain tracks that have production by none other than himself; he isn’t releasing half-assed mix tapes with jacked beats. In fact, I (along with the rest of the Hip-Hop community) consider his mix tape releases to be album quality

4Eva N A Day features seventeen all new original tracks from K.R.I.T., and there are no vocal guest appearances; it sounds like this tape could be monumental. It seems as though there is no slowing down one of the hardest working cats in the Hip-Hop game; he had released three top-tier mix tapes in the last three years, and he is readying the world for his Def Jam debut, Live From the Underground. Make sure click the download button and get yourself a syringe.

Album Download: M.i, The Coldplay Sessions

Posted in Album Download with tags , , , on Thursday, February 23, 2012 by Tim Althaus

That’s right folks, The Coldplay Sessions album is finally here. I was going to hold off on posting this until I did a review, but I’m so blown away by this project that I felt compelled to post it now. GoodMusicAllDay, Ashley Outrageous and DJBooth.net proudly released M.i’s new project on Tuesday. The Austin, Texas native did all of the production on the album (with the exception of the last track which is produced by Tyler Keyes), and he also did all of the mixing and engineering. The production on this album is crisp, and all of the samples are perfectly utilized to make incredible cuts.

I’ve been a fan of M.i’s since I first heard his mixtape Prep Time, and I can honestly tell you that I will keep following this dude as long as he keeps putting out music. In today’s music age, it’s not that common to see a jack-of-all-trades like M.i, and he’s very good at what he does. Ever since it came out on Tuesday, I’ve been spinning The Coldplay Sessions non-stop. As I’ve said many times before, M.i has a laid back flow that makes it so easy to like his style. Now all I can do is impatiently wait on the album that Tyler and M.i have been putting together for the last year since Tyler moved to Texas; good lord is that project going to be bonkers.

You can download The Coldplay Sessions here, and make sure you stay tuned for an album review coming very soon.

Album Download: Brother Ali, The Bite Marked Heart EP

Posted in Album Download with tags , , , , on Monday, February 13, 2012 by Tim Althaus

That’s right, Mr. Ali is back with a free EP for the masses; The Bite Marked Heart is a new 7 track EP of all original material. I’m particularly stoked about this one because Brother Ali does the majority of his work on this project with Jake One; of course, Ali did a couple tracks with ANT as well. If you remember Jake One’s album White Van Music, then you know that he works very well with Ali. Upon seeing the tracklisting, I instantly became fixated on track number three; hearing Brother Ali and Phonte on the same track is like a dream come true.

After my first listen of The Bite Marked Heart, I can definitely say that it’s worth the free download, and it’s an overall great project. Brother Ali doesn’t know what the definition of sub-par is; well, he might, but I’m guessing we will never see evidence of it. Make sure you click that button and grab some of the best (free) quality Hip-Hop you can find, courtesy of Rhymesayers Entertainment.

Mixtape Download: Saigon, Warning Shots 3: One Foot in the Grave

Posted in Album Download, Downloads with tags , , , on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 by Tim Althaus

The Yardfather is back, and he’s using his built up momentum from last year’s spectacular outing The Greatest Story Never Told. Yesterday Sai-Giddy dropped his long awaited street album Warning Shots 3: One Foot in the Grave. I can honestly say that this mixtape is bananas; all of the beats are straight fire, and Saigon spits that hardcore street flow that you’ve become used to hearing. Production comes courtesy of Just Blaze, DJ Corbett, Shuko, Red Spyda and Scram Jones. You can also expect to hear guest appearances from Jump-Off Joe Beezy, Lil’ Fame and Quan.

The Greatest Story Never Told was one of best year’s last albums, and it sounds like Saigon is going to keep bringing top quality material for the Hip-Hop lover’s ears. I personally can’t wait until Sai drops his next studio offering; he could quickly become one of the best emcees of this generation.

Welcome To Slept On Saturdays at Mind Inversion

Posted in Album Download, Media, Slept on Saturdays with tags , , , on Saturday, January 21, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Do you ever find that there’s music that you criminally slept on (see: The Only Color That Matters is Green) ? More often than not, I end up finding out about a project that I managed to neglect for some reason or another. I was looking for a weekly column that I could do, and I feel like Slept On Saturdays is the perfect idea. Every Saturday I’m going to take the opportunity to shed some light on a mixtape, album or track that I overlooked because of sheer obliviousness. After all, the saying goes, “it’s better late than never”. Continue reading

Knife Party is the side project from Pendulum’s duo Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen. Their song “Internet Friends” has been catching fire since its initial release in the Summer of 2011. It was remixed and re-released on their EP 100% No Modern Talking in December of ’11. The 4-track EP is available for a free download on their Facebook page. Again, it is free and if you have ever heard of Pendulum you might as well join the Knife Party.
