music linkage: dubstep, breaks, electro & industrial techno

001. the first day of my life

Time to share some links to awesome and free musical resources to charge those iPods and mp3 players with. Here’s what landed in my inbox recently or flew across my twitter stream.

  • Cogent is celebrating the first birthday of his Slugplates dubstep label with the release of a free EP. The release contains 2 free tracks of which Karki Kid is definitely my favourite. If you’re digging this, check out this earlier dubstep set as well.
  • Do you know Hexstatic? I saw this guy once at the Belgian Beach Rock festival on a Ninja Tune night and he blew my socks off. His tunes could be described as breakbeat electro with a good dose of humour mixed in. The live shows are very much about the combination of their beats and visual. Their latest Scan Me EP is freely downloadable so go and check them out to get a taste of those beats.
  • Enough of the slow stuff? Well The DJ Producer has some more speedy beats for you at Soundcloud. If you’re feeling like blasting some of those industrial hardcore techno kicks through your speakers or earplugs, I recommend his DJ set from the Glade Festival. If you still wan the slow stuff however, he also has a retro electro set up for download. Not something you’d expect from this lad I’d say.
