Alright bassheads, I’ve got some cool stuff for you all this week:

FREE DOWNLOAD: DeathStar dropped a free EP!

Deathstar kicks off the Ultra Violet Halo EP with a track called “Funk Soul” that flows oh so elegantly. DeathStar’s chill style carries you right through the rest of the EP, and the bass never fails to pick you up at all the right moments. Ultra Violet Halo is definitely an EP worth having on your person for a while.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Skidope ft. Mc Sas give away a free track.

Up next, check out this free download that turned up this week. “Digital Destruction” is a filthy track put up on soundcloud by Skidope, or Dawid Kabaciński, a 20 year old musician from Poland. Holding this track down with some grime is Dawid’s friend, Mc Sas. Check it out!

NEW ALBUM: Bassnectar – Divergent Spectrum EP

Divergent Spectrum, the truly extended-play, 15 track concept album from Bassnectar, is due out the first week of August. I just got my copy, and I’m working on a review for you all- I gotta say, you guys should go pre-order this thing right now… Oh my God, are you seeing all those awesome pre-order packages?!
