So far, it's been a week of newbies on the MPFree front, but today's comes from an old fave.... Diplo has teamed up with Jahan Lennon for something pretty unexpected when you consider that the last Diplo track we played was a big brazen bombastic dance track.
This new offering is a psyched-out two...

Today's MPFree is a fine example of cosmic ordering. Yesterday we played the new single by Blende; we loved it. Then, bingo! It's up as a free download. So here it is...

Your MPFree is another offering of producer and rapper Oddisee; he's clearly very generous with his music as we used his track Paralyzed as an MPFree back in May.
This free download is a new track inspired by his home town Largo in Maryland.
He's playing on Friday at the Jazz Cafe, but unfortunately...

This week's Memory Tape is all about a musical education, as Phil Booth explains...
"I thought I'd send you two mixtapes that i did for my daughter, Ella. These mixtapes were influenced by a person you had on the mixtape section previously who wanted to give his kids a musical education.

Your MPFree this week is the final track from the Adult Swim Series of 2012 free downloads. And what a way to end!
Liars released their last album WIXIW back in June, and this is already some new material from them. It's pretty dark; but pretty brilliant.

Your MPFree today was a tip-off from The Pharcyde; probably because it's the solo project of one of the members of the group.
Frank Friction is the alter-ego of Bootie Brown. On this tracks he's teamed up with Parisian producer Kurser who's also worked with the likes of De La Soul.
As you might expect...
