    Default thread of free music

    i did a quick search and haven't really seen a legit free music thread on here so i figured i would start one. i don't have a lot of excess cash so i love it when artists and labels give out stuff for free, it makes me dig them even more.

    please post free tracks in here, but make sure they are being given away by the artists or labels themselves. please try to list the genre as well. found any good soundcloud artists or labels you want to share? let us know.

    i know some of you are going to say this is no fun and the digging is the greatest part...i agree to some extent and i will still dig but i don't have enough time in the day to do everything i want with music and a full time job so i love a little guidance every now and then.

    well let me kick this off with one most of you guys probably already know about, but in case you don't here's pretty lights music:

    i'm gonna just keep this rolling and hopefully someone finds some good tunes and new artists through my relentless digging through the internets to find gems.

    here's a record label that has a bunch of free releases but you will have to do a little work on this one...it's worth it though since there are some diamonds to be found. it took me an hour or so to snag about 200+ tracks from this label

    http://digital.1320records.com/
    glitch hop/dubstep/hip hop/downtemp/electronic

    just click on each artist at the left of the site, then scroll to the bottom of the page click on each of their albums (make sure show all albums is on) and it will tell you which ones are free. add to your cart, create an account and download away. all the tracks here are high quality 320s.

    here's a couple of the free albums as an example:
    http://digital.1320records.com/searc...RELEASE_ID=818
    http://digital.1320records.com/searc...RELEASE_ID=836

    pro tip: many of these artists have a bandcamp page with other free downloads, so you can still have fun with a bit of the hunt on this one.

    shem will treat you right if you like some harder and darker sounds. he is also very good about responding and communicating with his fans on his facebook page.

    all of his work on his bandcamp page (with the exception of only human) are name your price, so you can put 0 in and grab them for free. if you like his stuff don't hesitate to donate a little money to the cause because he deserves it.

    so far it's been a lot of glitchy type sounds but i'm hoping more people will add different styles. it just seems easier for me to find that kind of stuff or maybe those types of artists are more prone to giving out free tracks. well, here's some sounds that are a bit more swinging:

    http://algorythmik.bandcamp.com/album/free-downloads
    or their soundcloud if you prefer
    http://soundcloud.com/algorythmikliv...ree-downloads/
    swing!/glitch hop/dubstep ish

    muppet chaud is awesome! get it!

    these guys usually rotate their free albums, so if you keep an eye on them and you can get their entire body of work for free.
