Free Music for the Weekend: Robin Thicke, Nomi Madness & Cash Cash

By John Hill

Free downloads for you! And for you! And for you! I feel like Oprah here, but when artists are feeling generous enough to get their music out to the public for free, why wouldn’t you take them up on it? 

Here are a few quality tracks and mixes to check out and maybe add to your weekend playlist:

Blurred Lines (Rejoyce Interpretation): Robin Thicke, T.I. & Pharrell
This song is EVERYWHERE this summer, but if you can’t get enough, producer and label owner Rejoyce adds enough oomph to the track to keep you movin’ and groovin’ on the treadmill or the dance floor. 

My Love Is For Real (Goh Hotoda Mix): Nomi Madness 
Nomi Madness should be familiar to regular readers as Warren Nomi, a severely underrated pop/dance artist who should already be a superstar on the dancefloor. This song popped up after the Supreme Court ruling on Prop 8 and DOMA, and it’s Inner City-influenced vibe has been burning up my summer playlist ever since. Fun fact: this song was co-written with 90s chanteuse Cathy Dennis for Victoria Beckham’s ill-fated sophomore album in the mid-00s that never saw the light of day. 

Cash Cash’s Royalty Radio #001 NYC’s EDM trio are not only recording artists, but they are also in-demand producers and remixers that are enjoying success right now with up-and-coming group Krewella. Check out their first episode of Royalty Radio, featuring cuts from artists like Miley Cyrus, Matthew Koma, Charli XCX and Krewella. If this doesn’t get your weekend off to a strong start, I’ve got nothing for ya.
