The Jam Jar: Week 04 of 2015

Call me crazy but I still love me some MP3s. Forget if your artist pulls their music off Spotify or your phone can’t connect to SoundClound (again); play what you want, when you want. It can be tough to keep an eye on all that free music coming out each week but that’s why ThatNewJam is here. Each week will end with a new Jam Jar playlist wrapping up all the music that we reposted each week. We’ll also throw in a folder with all the free downloads that are in the playlist so you don’t have to go combing for each of them.

Kanye West – All of the Lights (Hotel Garuda x Prince Fox Remix)

Honorable Mention:
Yung Bae – Be Still
Madeon – You’re On (Gramatik Remix)
Notorious B.I.G. – Can I Get Witcha (Ryan Farber Remix)
ODESZA – Bloom (Lane 8 Remix)
Mord Fustang – Press Start
Mocki – Weekend (Jai Wolf Remix)

The Jam Jar: Week 03 of 2015

Call me crazy but I still love me some MP3s.  Forget if your artist pulls their music off Spotify or your phone can’t connect to SoundClound (again); play what you want, when you want.  It can be tough to keep an eye on all that free music coming out each week but that’s why ThatNewJam is here.  Each week will end with a new Jam Jar playlist wrapping up all the music that we reposted each week.  We’ll also throw in a folder with all the free downloads that are in the playlist so you don’t have to go combing for each of them.

This week we had over 150 tracks surface on the TNJ SoundCloud page (which you should all definitely follow) ranging from a bassline baseline gems like Paige’s NSYNC remixes, an Oliver Heldens x Zeds Dead collab and a freebie from one of my favorites Durante.  Alesia unleashed a ruthless remix of  Jack Ü ‘s single Take Me There, RL Grime gave out his TNGHT edit, and Lookas proves trap is still alive and well with a monster new track Samurai.

We got some new material from Visionary Music Group in a strong mixtape from C Dot Castro titled Don’t Overthink It with a feature from TNJ favorite Jon Bellion. ABSRDST dropped a deep one on us along with AMTRAC, The Floozies kept it funky with us, and we discovered a new favorite in Flow Castle.  It would be insane for me to try and name everything in here so go brows the playlist below and grab the free download below!

Download Every Single Lido Remix from 2014 For Free

When it’s so easy to just give away music for free, it’s always refreshing to see an artist like Lido switch it up. Lido artistically flipped the entire process on it’s head by making you play his signature four note tag on a virtual piano rather than running you through the usual gambit of like and follow gates. Head on over to LidoGotSongs.com and you’ll have to play the right notes in order to unlock a friendly thank you from the Norweigan producer along with a convenient zip file of every remix he did in 2014. This folder’s got everything from his remix of Justin Timberlake, Bastille, BANKS, Cashmere Cat and more!

The BEC Jam Jar: Week 50 of 2014

The BEC absolutely kills it.  Just a bunch of kids from Binghamton University and the surrounding area on Facebook sharing good vibes and good music all day erryday.  So much music gets posted in there and it’s easy for gems to get lost in there.  We’re gonna do a weekly wrapup of all the tracks to be posted in the Binghamton Electro Collective the previous week so that you don’t miss out on that new JAM!

The people of the Binghamton Electro Collective have provided 30 jams for you to get down to this weekend including tracks from Knife Party’s recently released album Abandon Ship, a RiFF RAFF x SNOOP DOGG collaboration, a brand new remixes of COCO from the Jersey Club King himself Trippy Turtle as well as a fully trapped out edit from Styles & Complete.  Our playlist goes one deeper with new tracks from one of my favorite up and coming producers JAUZ releasing a single alongside Borgore titled Lindsey Lohan and a remix of Warren G from Destructo and Wax Motif which personifies exactly what this G-House movement is about.  We got an ODESZA remix of Pretty Lights and a brand new single from TNJ favorite GRiZ!

ThatNewJam.com’s November Jam Jar [95 Free Downloads + 60 Minute Mix]

We’re kicking off a new monthly feature here at TNJ where we will be wrapping up each month with a free Torrent of all of the Free Downloads we were able to grab over the previous month. It’s no secret that artists are giving out a ton of free music each and every day and sometimes it can just be downright impossible to keep up with it all. To help you get through it all, we put together a 60 minute mix each month from Randy McRandell of the best new music the past month had to offer.

November saw some incredible releases given out for free from top dogs like Kaytranada and Mr. Carmack, a downright dirty remix of Anna Lunoe’s BDD from big bad Brooklyn bass man AC Slater and the release of major projects like RL Grime’s debut album VOID. Look out for some freebies from some of TNJs favorite up & comers like Jizzy Fra, Tyler Roper and C&T, who all put out a strong string of releases throughout the month. I led off the mix with my own original production as Randy McRandell called Blips and Blams. It’s one of the first original songs I’ve started to play live and I’m excited to continue creating things to make my sets more unique.

The Jam Jar is a .zip folder of all the Free Downloads that I accumulated throughout the past month that’s available for Torrent. The following mix are just some of my favorite songs that are in there that I mixed together. Be sure to subscribe to ThatNewJamFM on SoundCloud to stay up to the minute with all the daily jams coming out daily.

Kanye West – Power (Tyler Roper Remix) [TNJ Premiere]

I couldn’t be happier to be able to premiere this newest Tyler Roper remix of the Kanye West classic track ‘Power’ on TNJ.  After releasing a string of well received singles by the WAVO community including two awesome originals in Dr. Sixgun and Go After Her. He also recently came out with remixes of Drake and he even managed to make Taylor Swift sound super-dope.  Tyler has always had an incredible grasp of melodies and this latest edit is no different.  Taking the track somewhere entirely more funky, it sounds as though your flying through a groovy wormhole as Kanye West serenades you.  Kinda sorta like this.

PUSHER Drops Production Knowledge In YouTube Tutorial

One of my favorite new styles of music coming out is this “neon” style; think upbeat, melodic based music with really intricate rhythms and drum work.  Like complextro met hip-hop & N64.  Today I stumbled upon an incredible YouTube tutorial on some of the production points of the style using the super-powerful plugin Massive from  PUSHER, one of the producers driving this sound forward.  As someone who has used multiple YouTube tutorials from artists like Kill Paris to push my production game further, I am going to make a commitment to post up these kinds of videos as I see them.

Check out the video for 12 minutes on some nice pointers using the Massive synth including what some of the routing means and ways to augment your sound.  First starting in Massive can definitely be overwhelming, but the tutorial does a nice job of breaking everything down into its basic parts and really providing some really good insight.  You can check out his YouTube channel for more videos and some of his tracks and look below the Massive tutorial for a 17 minute one digging into ‘Leads, Chords, & Basses’.

Check Out David Heartbreak’s ‘Rose Colored Bass’ Project File on Splice

While the power players in the new digital music ecosystem like SoundCloud have begun to lose their dominance due to issues with their user interface, copyright infringement, and potential for exploitation/manipulation, new services have begun to arise to provide a better listening experience.  Enter Splice, the tech startup creating a cloud platform for music creation, collaboration and sharing.  As artists are still looking to create music while increasingly being on the road to support themselves, Splice has taken the Google Docs approach to music production by allowing artists to work in Ableton via the cloud.  This not only allows for increased collaboration between touring artists, but also provides the ability for a community to create and share music made by the creators, with the creators; something never seen before.

After releasing the full project file for Henry Fong’s original collab with J-Trick titled ‘Scream’,   Their latest product to rollout is  their Thump-premiered player shows exactly what you can do when you have access to the full artist project file like for David Heartbreak’s new footwork-inspired track ‘Rose Colored Bass’.  Open the full project on Splice’s website and you can individually solo and listen to each of the projects’ 33 channels to get a more in-depth look at the how the best-of-the-best set up their projects while also being able to break down tracks further than the one singular waveform provided by SoundCloud.  As someone who really enjoys digging into what makes up my favorite tracks, I see this as a huge utility moving forward and I can’t wait to see what else they roll out next.  You can see get the full track/project file for ‘Rose Colored Bass’ when it sees a full release on 9/1.
