HOWLINGS turns the dreamy "Transgender" by Crystal Castles into a glowing dubstep track, best heard on a real sound-system. This is a track that needs to be felt, as in 'feel-the-bass', to be fully appreciated. The San Francisco-based producer has many interesting, downloadable tracks on his Soundcloud, and two excellent EPs free on Bandcamp.

Karmelloz released one of our favorite albums this year; BUD AIR, reviewed here, and we are delighted by the opportunity to debut his new track "Genetic Drift".
An organ sampled from the Sid & Nancy soundtrack is worked into a catchy riff and washed with side-chained pulsations over a future-house drum track with some pretty sick edits; a certified banger. Listen and grab the MP3 below.
Check out his Soundcloud for more gems, and in case you missed it the remixes from BUD AIR are dope too, available here.

Memoryy is a Brooklyn 'synthpop band' and Box of Wolves is of course the canadian chillwave artist Gabriel Akinrinmade who has consistently impressed me with his productions and especially, his remixes, his take on MNDR's "Feed Me Diamonds: was THE version of that memorable song. The original is available to download, you'll have to get the remix by the usual method.
Jensen Sportag has a new album out on Cascine and while I am sure it's great and essential, this blog is of necessity focused on free music, and two outstanding remixes of tracks from the album are free downloads. The reclusive Christian Fennesz emerges from hiding with his noisy take on "Rain Code" and Astro Nautico's Obey City follows the natural tendencies of Jensen Sportag toward yacht-rock.
