I'm not entirely sure if this is a legally-distributed record, but I'm posting it anyway because the awesomeness of it is overruling my desire to confirm its legality. This is Dubfire's performance from the strange and incredible Resistance "stage" at Ultra last weekend. I used dick fingers around the word stage because it was more … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Kicking off this week's trio of free music downloads is a brand, spankin new track from Big Gigantic, the sax-centric electronic duo out of Boulder. I first saw Big G play at Electric Forest 2011, and I'm not gonna lie, I don't remember a whole lot of details from that show, except that there was … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sam "Feel Good Feels" Feldt has a radio show! Also known as a podcast. Also, I just made up that nickname. His music is always just so pleasant, not unlike pool water kept at an ideal and comfortable temperature, to the point where you can almost overlook the fact that you're in water at all. … Continue reading frankles free fridays

The music of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, or TEED, could be described as dance music with just the right amount of sadness. But that might be hard to tell based on his two-hour mix for Rinse FM's podcast. He covers a lot of ground in terms of genre's, but hovers in a sweet spot of … Continue reading frankles free fridays

First up we have Four Tet's two-hour contribution to Marcel Dettman's Dekmantel podcast. If you've listened to Four Tet before, you'll already know to expect a wide range of music, from "world music" to house to techno to god, who really knows where some of his stuff comes from. He's a question mark, but he's … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Big Gigantic's Winter Vibes mix was a welcome influx of new and old jams and remixes to break up the monotony of a shitty and cold season. Their new Summer Vibes Mix is no different, except that it's just welcome. I'm from Minnesota, and warm weather never quite gets the chance to be monotonous. It's … Continue reading frankles free fridays

If you've thoroughly worn out last year's epic "In Return," but you've still got the Odesza bug,  head to their site and download their 2012 debut, "Summer's Gone" for free. It may not be as refined, but it has a lot of the same irregular rhythms and incredible sampler usage and sound manipulation that creates … Continue reading frankles free fridays

LA-based producer Le Youth received a downbeat, but still peppy remix treatment from jackLNDN. The song is roughly one half original, and one half new material drawn from the original. Thankfully, within that half of the original material are the sampled vocals of Mary J. Blige, driving the disco and the heart of the song … Continue reading frankles free fridays

If you're going to Coachella next week, you probably should already be packing, but if you're not, I'm here to help. Since it's Friday, I'll be blending in a few free downloads along with my preachy soapbox advice for surviving three days in the desert. Let's start by providing a mix to light a fire … Continue reading Coachella, Coachella, Coachella

Lane 8's quarterly, seasonally-themed mix came out just in time for the Do-Lab's lineup announcement. His aptly-titled "Spring 2015 Mixtape" is a delightful 2 hours of upbeat house and deep house. I haven't been able to find a tracklisting yet, but maybe a little mystery is a good thing. More Lane 8 Mixes: http://www.lane8music.com/mixes/ Do you … Continue reading frankles free fridays | Coachella Edition III
