The Beatport Decade series is now on its final week of celebrations, and for the 10th installment they bring in Drumcode head honcho, Adam Beyer. Beyer has selected 10 tracks to include in his Decade Playlist, and also offers up 5 free tracks from Drumcode artists Alan Fitzpatrick, Joseph Capriati, Sam Paganini, Nicole Moudaber, and Victor Calderone. As expected each one of the freebies embodies a different emotion and vibe associated with the quintessential Drumcode sound. Head on over to the Beatport Decade Page to download Adam Beyer’s picks, as well as look at the previous 9 weeks and downloads. Don’t forget to sign in in order to download the tracks.
Human Reason by Adam Beyer and Alan Fitzpatrick is a mainroom stomper completed with a heavily gated lead and droning horns that are just asking to be played to big dance floors. Not a bad track to kick start the free download package.
Adam Beyer’s London clearly shows it’s roots in minimal. Swinging percussions keep the track vibrant as rubbery bass elements keep the track glued together as it chugs along.
Solar System by Italian artist Joseph Capriati is another mainroom piece aimed directly at big room techno floors. With crispy high hats, the track then drops into nothing but a kick and sidechained pad only to slowly bring the percussive elements back in. A mainroom monster from Capriati without a doubt.
For the fourth free download, Beyer selects The Journey Begins Victor Calderone and Nicole Moudaber. Thought provoking vocal samples flow throughout this track creating a sense of dance floor unity perfect for any techno party. This track is one of the more emotional tracks from the bunch, but still has the punch and drive to keep the party In full effect.
The free downloads end with Chocolate by Sam Paganini. This is the type of track that can rock festivals and clubs alike. Analog stabs work well with the straightforward groove giving this one an overall solid vide, and a nice track to end the series on.
