Dangerdogg – The Moving Couple [download mineral_free020]
The Dude is what the Dude does.
Dangerdogg is a skateboarder turned dj/producer hailing from Helsinki, Finland. Having his influences from doom metal to rocksteady and blues this fine young skaterat isn’t afraid to combine different styles and aesthetics in to his productions.
He’s already been causing mayhem on the dancefloors with his partner Sir Nenis under the Sharkslayer moniker but this time he’s going solo for a DNB treat.
Enjoy the track and keep on sending the demos! Much appreciated.
We have another great free track up, by DJ Mauoq from Rome, now based in London. Unknown Recipient is a nice atmospheric track with some techish spices innit. Check it out!
Mauoq – Unknown Recipient [download mineral_free_019]
“I started DJing at student parties in Italy in the early ’90s and fell in love with DnB shortly after.I was exposed to music softwares in the late nineties and that slowly but steady became my obsession. I’ve played many clubs in Rome and London, but now I’m concentrating more on production. After years fiddling with various electronic music toys it’s only recently that I started feeling relatively happy about my music and my first release is coming out end of March on Green Queen Music.
Generally speaking I would like the world to know that drum’n'bass has evolved. There’s now much more to it than just rattling drums and overloud basslines. This is what I try to do with my podcast and ultimately with my own production.
This track “Unknown Recipient” was written almost entirely two years ago and I thought that a little polish would have made it a nice listen. I think I was right. I hope you agree. Enjoy.”
I’m really digging your style Mauoq, keep it up! There’s some really cool tracks in Mauoq’s soundcloud, I’d recommend you to listen “Aerosolid”, a track that has gotten dj support from Stunna.
Check more of Mauoq’s production, quality mixes and more:
This week’s Free Track comes from the UK by an artist called J Melodic. Jay’s songs are heavily inspired by the melodic side of drum’n'bass, just like his artistname says. Grab a coffee and start listening “Key Tempo”. Njoy!

The Free Track of The Week #17 comes from Resound, a good friend of mine who’s been around in the dnb scene for more than a decade. Check the atmospheres in the track “Northern Lights” by the one and only Resound – produced back in 2000!

Resound is a musician/producer and DJ from Tampere, Finland. Many know him from his music on such record labels as Digital Soundboy, Renegade Hardware, Razor’s Edge/Metalheadz, Function and Secret Operations. He also does a lot of mixing/engineering/mastering work for others.
Resound’s style is timeless, I’d say. Just think about this track “Northern Lights”: it was done more than a decade ago and it still sounds SO fresh with the atmospheric melodies and fine unique beat variations. No wonder Resound is recognized worldwide as a producer and dj.
