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!

J Melodic is a UK based Dj and Producer. He started DJing back in 95 playing DnB and Uk Garage/Soulful House. After practising his DJ skills for five years, J Melodic naturally progressed in producing DnB/soulful House and other genres in 2000.
Jay’s music is influenced by many artists from the melodic side of dnb. He says, that he gets his inspirations and influences from LTJ Bukem, Lenzman, mjcole, Goldie, Fabio, Marcus Intalex, mood2swing to name but a few.
There’s a lot of variation in J Melodic’s production. I’m really digging his (WIP) We run tings, an old school track at Jay’s soundcloud. Check it out at his soundcloud.
This week’s Free Track of The Week is by a really special guest Furi Anga from Finland. I’ve been a fan of Furi’s moody dnb production for a long time, and I’ve been playing his tracks in my mixes a lot too. This marvellous track “The Human Project” is all about what Furi does best: moody, melodic and minimalistic dnb. Check it out!

Furi Anga alias Antti Viitamäki is a deep soul explorer from Finland, Scandinavia. Listening to his music one gets transported into a melancholic fairy world – sometimes true and beatiful, sometimes dark and grotesque. He gets heavy influences from ascetic finnish nature. “Cold scandinavian moods delivered in a form of drumandbass.”, as Furi describes at his site Furianga.com.
I’m currently working on a collaboration track “Awakening” with Furi, and it’s gonna be really good! I’ll let you know when it’s finished.
The Free Track of The Week #12 is up. This time we have some chilly summersounds to warm up the cold winter days. Check out this liquid dnb track “Step” by Mineral:

Free Track of The Week #12 is a chilly and easylistening drum’n'bass track by Mineral. The rolling breaks and beats accompanied with various melodies make this a nice roller. Grab a cup of coffee (or even better: a cold beer), turn up the volume and start listening! Hope you enjoy this track!
The cover artwork for Step is designed by a really talented graphic artist Maija Paloheimo. She has done lots of amazing works for bands and different websites for example, so check out her portfolio for more art by Maija.

What would be a better way to start a week, than to listen to this fresh Free Track of The Week by Ben Kama? I can’t think of any, so check this out:
- Ben Kama – Someone [download www.mineral.fi_free003]
Ben Kama is a Finnish Drum’n'bass producer & DJ who has a very strong talent in producing drum’n'bass. He has forthcoming releases on several labels, and already over 300 fans at his soundcloud.
The Free Track of The Week, “Someone”, is a smooth and soothing drum’n'bass piece. It is a rework of a track ‘Joku Jota Rakastan’ (Someone I Love) by a Finnish folk band ‘Kaseva’ from the good ol’ 70′s.” I like the melodies and drums a lot, this is a fine piece of art!
Kama is also doing a remix of my track “Mineral – Reach For The Stars“, and I’m really looking forward to his remix.
Hope you like this track! Make sure you check out Kama’s soundcloud too and start following him – there’s plenty of high quality tracks to be listened at his profile!
