Releasing free MP3s as ‘a Christmas gift’ is as original as announcing a new release on 11-01-’11 of the new year, but let’s ignore that. Because good music is good music, right? Time is not of the essence. Our inbox is filled with Christmas anthems, gifts and free stuff. We decided to select the best of all those free tracks with our standard Quality Control policy, for your pleasure.

Our inbox is filled with Christmas anthems, gifts and free stuff. We decided to select the best of all those free tracks with our standard Quality Control policy, for your pleasure. Our selection features free music by Mar, K-Murdock, Suff Daddy, Kev Brown, Paul White, Chrisfader, Minor Sick, DJ Sight and many more.
We’re still not sure if Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ is worse than Rick Ashley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up‘, but it definitely competes to be the worst song ever. Honestly, I personally have no clue why they still play this song on the radio around Christmas. You really need to be talented to turn this into a nice song. Luckily, Mar is exactly that. He turned a horrible song into a very nice soulful variation.
Good to see Low Budget Crew’s ‘Low Budget Christmas’ back this year! We’ve featured the first EP in last year’s Pick Of The Week: Christmas edition on Laid Back Radio, so it’s nice to be able to post this sequel by Kev Brown, Kaimbr & Roddy Rod. Check the tracklist here.
Paul White has been back in the studio and needed no coaxing to produce what might be the finest Christmas beat to drop this year: ‘We Three Kings’.
Here’s a free track producer K-Murdock (of Panacea) recorded while he was touring together with emcee MegaRan. It can be downloaded for free at Bandcamp. K-Murdock’s other Xmas track, ‘A Christmas Story’, is available for only 1$ at his Bandcamp. And on a sidenote, check out our interview with both K-Murdock and MegaRan (a.k.a. Random) here.
What’s better than finding new music and discovering it’s from your own country? Independent label Esc. Rec reached out to us through Twitter and we’re thankful for that. Together with another label called Lomechanik they’ve released this downtempo electronic compilation called ‘Flakes’, ideal travel music on those cold winter days. The line-up, tracklist and other download options can be found here.
As we started with a ‘Last Christmas’ variation, we end with one as well. While Mar’s variation above is soulful, this version by Mr. Gikko & Mosch is more hip hop-orientated. Austria label Duzz Down San has sent us this and they went ape shit with Christmas gifts. But in a good way, because there’s some good stuff. Including a new track by Chrisfader, who we’ve featured last year on our frequent radio selection.
So to end this download galore, here’s a bunch of goodness by aforementiond label you can dig through. Some isn’t Xmas related though, but it’s good nonetheless: Vertual Vertigo & Suff Daddy – Vertmas, Chrisfader – Tribute to Eyedea Mix, DJ Testa – 12 Days Mix, Minor Sick – I Clean Floors Mix & DJ Sight – Backflash Mix. All for free, including previews!
