Free Music: Credit Crunch Downloads

08/12/2009

OK, so it looks like there is a faint light at the end of the tunnel with regard to the economic crisis the world has been facing recently, however times are still tough and with Christmas also on the way purchasing new music is not on the top of many people’s lists.

Well help is at hand for those in need of some fresh aural stimulation, I have pulled together a few fantastic releases from this year that are all available for FREE!!

A lot of you will be familiar with at least some of these, if not all, but I’ve put this together for those  of you who may have let some of these gems slip through the cracks.

Brittany Bosco – Spectrum 2.0

The ridiculously talented songstress defies categorisation. She mixes soul, jazz, funk and a little hip-hop to create something which is 100% Bosco. She has 3 EPs under her belt and is currently working on her debut full-length album ‘Black’.

Shalonda – Just Go … A Mixtape

This lady seemingly came out of nowhere with her impressive debut EP. She covers some jazz classics but with a thoroughly modern twist. Definitely one to watch in 2010.

Various Artists (SoulCulture.co.uk) – Aaliyah Revisited

Eight years after the untimely death of the Princess of R&B Soulculture Magazine gathered together some of the leading progressive soul artists of our time to record interpretations of some great Aaliyah tracks.

Zo! – … just visiting too

With help from some of his friends (including Phonte, Sy Smith and Yahzarah) Zo! reimagined some classic tracks from the likes of Prince, The Isley Bros. and Minnie Riperton.

Varous Artists (Soulbounce.com) – Men Love Mary

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Mary’s My Life album the folks over at Soulbounce gathered some of todays best male vocalists to record a tribute to the queen of hip-hop soul.

Eric Rico – The Reworks Project

Progressive soulster Eric Rico reinterprets songs from the likes of Sade, Al Green, James Brown and Mr Stevie Wonder. Be warned, these are no karaoke-cover versions, Eric puts his own unique spin on these classic artists.
