Mind The Gap’s Picks for Electric Picnic 2017

Ireland’s biggest festival is nearly here and if you haven’t got a ticket they are all sold out. Unfortunately I’m not going to be there myself , but that doesn’t stop me checking out the artists and getting who we think you should keep an eye out for, especially those that are less commercial.

So here is MTG’s picks for the weekend.

  • Soulwax (A must see)
  • The XX
  • Annie Mac
  • Rag N Bone Man
  • Interpol
  • Pete Tong
  • Duran Duran
  • Birdy
  • London Grammer
  • DJ Deece (Some local talent)

Be sure to check it the comedy and body and soul areas as it’s just nice to laugh and kick back.

Free Music Monday

It’s Monday and a good way is start is by getting your hands on some free music. 

Got nice remake of the classic birds flying high by Mowe, really enjoyed this house version done by Mowe made me want to go to the beach.

Have a hip hop dancey remix by Flume of Ta Ku’s track higher.

Finally we got a electro banger remix of green day by Seb renzella. Definitely worth a listen.

Maroon 5 – Maps (Will Sparks Remix)

Found this beauty from Will Sparks a young rising star from Australia. He has done a fantastic job using his unique grimmy electro bassline to really beef Maroon 5’s track Maps. He also has it up on soundcloud for a free download which actually redirects me to his facebook. So if someone finds the link on there please post it in the comments.

Free Music Monday

It’s Monday again and I have been looking around for some free music for you guys to download. 

First up is a cover of Superstar Ed Sheeran’s song which I’m sure you heard many times on the radio, it’s of course “shape of you”. This cover sounds very close to the original that I wasn’t sure that it was a cover. Check it out below.

Next we have Alok & Seven with BYOB and finally a track that was a big hit when I was growing up Eiffel 65 – blue with Kny factory on the remix.
