Freeform Hardcore is a genre that I have only just heard. Immediately I realised that I'm going to be listening to this for a long time to come.. I just wish I heard it years ago.
I think a lot more people would listen to this if they knew where to find a good freeform mix. This problem has been solved for you.
This is a live mix from 2005 in Brisbane's mayhem festival by Alek Szahala..
This is hard! So fucking fast and heavy hitting, you will be wired and on the edge of your seat for the entire mix.
Listen to 3:30 and you won't be able to stop listening.. this mix is a crazy blend of 190 bpm tracks. Remember, this is a live recording.. yet it is flawless. Defqon 1 anyone?
Live at Mayhem 2005 (Brisbane) - Alek Szahala (direct download)
Bonus: Defqon 1 CDs. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.
I stumbled across a mix on FAT. It really blew my mind.
Firstly, it isn't really a mix of the likes which you are used to. Most of the songs are barely mixed together.. this is one artist's playlist for a great store in Melbourne.
This is a creative blend of music. I highly recommend listening to the entire thing at once to fully appreciate it.
The songs are perfect for a Sunday, and the fact that he hasn't attempted to poorly mix between genres makes it even easier to listen to.
I have no tracklisting and I have no genre to classify it under.. but it mixes between experimental, hip-hop and shoegazing rock.
Wet, Wet, Wet! - TRU$T FUN!
Bonus Track: Shelter (Tiga Remix) - The XX

If you call yourself a dubstep fan and are unaware of who 'Doctor P' is, then you've been living under a rock for quite some time..if his signature track 'Sweet Shop' rings a bell, then you know exactly what to expect from this UK based DJ/Producer.
The great news? He's coming down to Australia in October and bringing some mad guests too, rumours are that previously featured 'Flux Pavillion' is one of them, making this tour a must see for anyone into mind melting, ear bleeding filth.
Adelaide fans..save this date: Saturday, 23rd October @ The Crown & Sceptre, as its guaranteed to be wild!
Caspa - Marmite (Doctor P Remix) (one of my favourites)

So today we bring you the first of the 'Quick Mix' series. Our aim here is not to create the most technically astounding, smooth transitioning mixes, but to quickly mash together some tracks that were feeling at the moment.
The mixes will be around 15-30 minutes long and under 30mb in most cases, and we should be putting them out every 1-2 weeks.
For the first edition of this series I've decided to throw together some new tracks from genre's that got me into mixing in the first place...
You can expect some good old Electro followed by some filthy wobble, dutch house and a touch of Drum & Bass to finish. Next week we have a Dubstep Guest Mix from DJ Slime.

I have recently put together a mix with Dylan Taylor, AKA Mellowd..
A 20 minute dubstep mix by myself (J:Dub) begins the set, where Mellowd follows up with some tech.
I will post the entire tracklist when I can, but for now I only have the dubstep tracks..

I did a post a while back about Brooklyn Bass producer Figure and the collab with Tommie Sunshine. Whilst their 'EC$TACY' collab had a very funky/disco feel to it, Figure's usual tracks are known for their filthy, distorted, wobbly basslines...and he's been busy at work with some fresh material.
His soundcloud page below has all of his tracks old and new, and there are some available for free download
A pick of the bunch:
Kraymer - I do This Shit ( Figure Remix) (zippyshare download)
Figure - Dirty Damage (zippyshare download)
An old gem I rediscovered from Project Bassline.

These aren't the newest tracks out there but they have nevertheless been on repeat on my Ipod lately..and are a must have for any Dubstep playlist. I'll save you the reading time so you can get right into them...
Edit: We've received numerous complaints from the DMCA about posting these tracks so all links have been removed, you can still google search and find them though ;)
The Boogaloo Crew - Days Go By (Chilled out with a driving bassline)
Massive Attack - Paradise Circus (Zed's Dead Remix) (Soothing vocals, until the drop hits!)
Blue Foundation - Eye on fire (Zed's Dead Remix) (One of my favourite tracks at the moment, gritty, dark and filthy coupled with strong vocals)
Tom Piper & Nick Corelli - Indisco (Bar 9 Remix) (Hot stuff from Bar 9)
Cyberoptix - Geisha (This track creates an image of traversing a calm oriental landscape, until the nail-biting crunch smacks you into the reality of the filth tearing away at your eardrums, Download now)
Rico Tubbs - Respect ( This track featured in many wobbly mixes in 2009, but only just got released, enjoy this 140 bpm wobble from Mr Tubbs)
Dillon Francis - Money Shot (This guy is one of my favourite producers atm, he nails it on all his original work and his remixes awesome too)
