This Ain't Bristol - Amsterdam Selections

One of the first blog posts on freshdrops was the original TAB Selections back in 2015. Now they’re back with another massive compilation of driving tech-house in preparation/commemoration of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) coming up at the end of October. 14 tracks from artists like This Ain’t Bristol regulars like Maximono and Nick Olivetti, along with some new faces. The sound throughout is signature TAB though - grimy, deep, dark and pounding tech-house.

My two standout picks from this compilation are definitely BYOR - Call Me Up, and MKJAY & Lowdown’s Afterhours.

The official release isn’t until October 12th, but check out the sampling of the entire compilation below.


This Ain't Bristol - More Selections [TAB002] (Compilation)

We wouldn't be able to call ourselves freshdrops if we didn't give you all something to download the day of release. We're following through on that today and posting about a great compilation coming from a group out of Germany - This Ain't Bristol. The best part about this compilation - it's great music ABSOLUTELY FREE, and was just released today - January 5th.

If This Ain't Bristol is a new name to you, you may also like to know that this is the second compilation that they have released for free. The first is also a massive release and is still available via their website here.

I could go on about the quality of names and sounds in general on this compilation, or try to pick out some of my favourite tracks, but honestly - it's all great. With artists such as South Soul Project, Hostage and Nick Olivetti featured, and with really creative sample use such as Dead or Alive's You Spin Me Round and Estelle's vocal from Kanye West's American Boy, there's something in here for everyone. Bonus for DJ's and audiophiles - you can choose your download format between mp3 or wav files. 

If you like your house deep, techy and bassy, this release is for you. Take advantage and jump on that free download!
