Ethereal downtempo, tape saturated house, 16,000 sound effect samples and plenty more…
Still in beta testing phase, the BBC have released 16,000 sound effects under the RemArc Licence, meaning you can download them for free. This is, of course, providing they’re used specifically for “personal, educational or research purposes.” Not what we’d usually feature in this column, but thought it was worth the inclusion.

S. Channel‘s latest freebie, a cinematic slice of downtempo, sees massaging pads descend like an ethereal mist.
In good company following contributions from the likes of Sneaker and Il Est Vilane, Mufti jumps on the Mange Moi-curated edit series. The Guadalajaran producer delivers a keeper too, reworking 1990’s ‘Kill The Revolution’ by French EBM/electro outfit, What’s.
A totally unknown quantity, fresh-faced producer Gloved Hands serves up some nostalgic, tape saturated house as a free download.
