(Another) 5 free projects you should've downloaded already...

'Puzzle Mixtape' by EABS
The Polish jazz septet, EABS, have gifted fans with 'Puzzle Mixtape': a nine-track selection featuring a collection of live performances recorded between 2012-2014 and through collaborations with M.E.D., Jeru the Damaja and Coultrain, this selection of tracks is perfect to showcase that level of improvisation and creativity that EABS boast amidst a live setting. [And for Dilla fans, make sure you take the chance to check out 'Reminisce' featuring Paulina Przybysz as it masterfully recreates Dilla's production of 'Reminisce' originally found on Bilal's '1st Born Second' album.]

'We Love Jalapeno'
Always love for the funk and disco-inspired music of Jalapeno Records and should the name be new to you then this nineteen-track showcase of their dynamic roster, including Smoove & Turrell, Gizelle Smith, IKON and The Allergies amongst others, will convert you into a die-hard fan.

'Emeson Remixes' by Emeson
Singer/songwriter/producer, Emeson, has a vast selection of music available to download via his Bandcamp page but this free collection of remixes from names as diverse as D'Angelo and De La Soul to Bjork and Peter Gabriel serves as an excellent showcase of his abilities. The Lianne La Havas track in particular is a real treat.

'Brownswood 20k Mixtape' 
Showcasing remixes from the more electronic side of the Brownswood catalogue, the trail-blazing London-based record label gifts fans with this exciting selection of tracks including music by artists including an Atjazz Remix of Zara McFarlane and a Pilooski Remix of Owiny Sigoma Band.
