John Talabot - 08-01
"It's my bday today. here a demo I'll never be able to finish or properly release because I lost the files. free download. thanks."
Terrence Parker - 'Sav3d Forever' (Planet-E Mix)
Before his new LP on Planet E, TP releases this for free.
"The song 'Saved Forever' has a deep spiritual meaning behind it," Terrence Parker tells Rolling Stone. "While composing this song I thought on how God has unconditional love for us. This is something we strive for as humans but it is not always easily achieved even with family members. I tried to communicate this feeling in notes and patterns of the song which ultimately builds to a euphoric crescendo, representing our gradual daily progression to love others unconditionally."

Loose Joints - Is It All Over My Face (Psonic Psummer Edit)
"Re-edit of the mighty Is It All Over My Face by Loose Joints. (Not that it needed any edits..)"
Various Assets - Not For Sale: RBMA New York 2013"Various Assets - Not For Sale 2013' is a collection of some of the music that was made during the Red Bull Music Academy during four early summer weeks in New York City last year. The double CD contains 30 tracks composed, improvised and discovered by the 62 international participants and a cast of high-profile studio team members, who all got their fingers dirty on synths, Mellotrons, vibraphones, drum machines and anything else they could lay their hands on. Enjoy!"
Jill Scott - Golden / Da Gramn remix (Darker Than Wax Free Download)
"Joko Roob aka Da Gramn from Perpignan, France is the latest addition to our growing roster of artists. Raised on a diet of Slum Village, J Dilla, Nujabes, Afta-1, Comfort Fit, Swede:Art, Sepalcure, MNDSGN and Portformat, you pretty much have an idea where Da Gramn is coming from sonically. Indeed, anyone who can pull off a Julien Clerc remix and make it sound like the freshest Juke number is good in our books. This particular track has been on rotation amongst the DTW DJs recently, leaving a rather significant mark on the dance floor."
Philogresz - The Lost Movie Trailer
"The Lost Movie is an outcome of Ilker's cinematic perception, approach, interpretation of his constantly intriguing dusty compositions." Download the trailer to his movie-album for free here.
Boonlorm "Terrarium II"
From the fine XLR8R series of free downloads. "For his recent Boonlorm project, Laposky built a skeletal house record by inserting objects into a grand piano à la John Cage and capturing the results. "Terrarium II"—taken from his remastered String Figures LP, which will see a collaborative re-release via Japanese label Snow Dog and Laposky's label tomorrow—blends the artist's dissonant piano treatments with unabashed handclaps and cowbell rhythms, crafting an innovative hybrid between intellectual exercise and DJ utility."
