AFrijsfo Treats 4 – Cardopusher»

The fourth in our sporadic series of free music and sound give-aways is a straight up DJ set from the one and only Cardopusher. He recorded this mix for Frijsfo Beats in August, during a hectic summer otherwise spent performing throughout Europe and prolifically producing and promoting an incredibly strong string of original releases.

ASFO011 – Cardopusher»

Released September 2011

We welcomed Cardopusher to the label just last month, giving him the opening spot on the Frijsfo Beats Vol. 3 compilation. Based in Barcelona (but Venezuelan by birth) the producer is challenging the field of new garage and dubstep head on, blowing most out of the water with sheer grit and soul.

Though sharper heads will have clocked his recent album for Tigerbeat6, for sheer rewind and replay value his contribution here stands out memorably.

Desto isn’t the only Finnish producer to get ahead in the hype game recently, but he stakes out his territory in muscular fashion. His remix Read More »
