This week, our Friday Freebies theme will focus on some crucial mixes for your weekend. Mixes are great for producers because it allows them to express themselves outside of the boundaries self-production holds. They\’re also great for listeners to get a taste of fresh, new music their favorite artists are listening to.
Friday Freebies: Weekend of January 9th, 2015
Big Gigantic – Winter Chill Mix
One of the current best live performance acts in dance music has to be Big Gigantic. A blend of live drumming and a smooth saxophone come together, bounded by quality production usually in the dubstep or funk realms of dance music.
This week\’s Featured Freebie is a 50-minute, genre blending mix of some of the hottest new tracks out there. Courtesy of Big Gigantic, we get to jam out to what they\’re currently listening to. The tracklist ranges with tracks from artists like Kanye West, ODESZA, Jauz, Danny Brown, Dillon Francis, and many more. It\’s been a cold winter thus far; now\’s your chance to kick back and listen to some good music indoors.
