FREE! Is there any sweeter word? especially when associated with Music, the word free can be as seductive as few.
And with the end of the year celebration well on its way, it seems appropriate to take a look back at this incredible 2013 through the Big Beats, Crunchy Bass Lines, Clever Lyrics, and pure Talent that kept us in good company in the last 12 months.
Not easy to pick 12 tunes that the crew kindly delivered to our ears for free, because it was a year rich in sounds this 2013.
And it’s always important to point out that free really means that THEY often had to spend endless hours in the studio perfecting harmonies, collaborating with lyrics and clever bass lines, and testing the results on the many dance floor they had the pleasure to entertain from the mighty Shambhala all the way to smaller venues.
So Make sure to visit their pages, drop a line or two in a comment, share their music with friends, give them the thumb up, and tell them how much you appreciate their extreme radness – it all helps to keep them going and that really means more awesome music for our eardrums!
So press Play and enjoy this selection – no particular order, just a list of personal favorites from this fine 2013 powered by the Danio Management Artists.
First Up, Soul Man Timothy Wisdom teams up with long time friend Dash from the Root Sellers to deliver a Melodic and Groovy tune, combining Ghetto-Funk, Hip-Hop and a simple but important message.
So make sure You make sense of your senses and Put in Your Earplugs. This is Timothy Wisdom coming through the System!
(Big ups to Captain Planet for the original Beat)

What else to add?
For me personally, it has been a true pleasure to join the Danio team and get to know the artists behind the music I love.
There is not just talent behind their success, but a lot of hard work, many late nights in the studios and en endless passion for making people dance as if nobody is watching.
And judging from the results, this year has been a success.
Many shout-outs should be made to the many friends and family that have shown their support in this year.
From all the promoters across Canada and the Globe, to the thousands of fans that have rammed dancefloor showing off their best and worst dance moves, many have been involved in making this such a memorable year.
But one man in a particular has won the respect and love of many, for pouring his heart and his energy into the music community and for believing in the crystalline talent of the artists He manages.
Loving the vibes of our West Coast Bass family more than ever
