Crucial Cut of the Month – August 2013
Every morning, right after we find our pants and knock back a few cups of joe, Diffuser.fm gives away a free MP3. Today, it might be snotty pop-punk, while tomorrow might bring brutish hardcore, pulsing acid house or boisterous boom-bap rap. You never know what you’re gonna get, and now, we’re asking you to tell us what you like best and vote in our Crucial Cut of the Month contest. It’s a chance to select your favorite free MP3 of the last month and help your favorite emerging acts get a little digital love.
Here’s how it works: On the first of every month, we post a poll like the one below. Listed here is every song we gave away during August 2013. You have all of September to cast your ballots, and on Oct. 1 — the day we roll out the next poll — we’ll announce the top vote-getter. What do they win? Diffuser.fm can’t promise limos or model girlfriends or the opportunity to work with Robin Thicke, but we can and will profile each Crucial Cut winner with a Q&A feature, and throughout the month, we’ll promote their music on our homepage and via social networks. Click here to read the piece we did on last month’s winner, Black Taxi.
Check out the full list of August 2013 downloads below, and be sure to click on the artists’ names to view their individual posts, read their back-stories and, most importantly, listen to their songs. Voting ends at 11:59PM EST on Sept. 3o. Good luck to all the artists.
