CC 10 year anniversary Mixtape

A European musical tribute to - and celebration of - the 10-year anniversary of the Creative Commons sharing tools.

Europe has great musical talent! Some of which is freely available under open licenses. This mixtape showcases the talent of 20 artists from 20 European countries. Local Creative Commons organizations have compiled a collection of twenty great songs to help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Creative Commons licenses.

The resulting mixtape can be found at archive.org (in the netwaves records collection!) and is available for free download under various Creative Commons licenses.


Prelinger Remix Contest

FMA says: "The Free Music Archive and Prelinger Archives recently mixed their parts together and produced 122 strange and beautiful remix children. Though everyone's a winner when we contribute new and interesting works to the commons, some of our video remixes were especially full of winning."

How Do You Say Goodnight by Carlo Patr�o

zet die ploat af!

"zet die ploat af / put that plate off!" that's how the brandnew mayor of Antwerp started his maiden speech after elections; he shouted these legendary words, because he was live on television and the deejay was still playing pumping, loud beats; see this hilarious video: https://youtu.be/LYi-RER8VJg

"Zet die ploat af. We zitte wel live in het nieuws. Allei joenges, fucking idioot!"

hot netlabel news

This weekend we'll have to celebrate a lot of things at our "Scorpio's Lazy Sunday Entrepot":

Portuguese netlabel MiMi Records releases its 200th album full of electronic music soundscapes: [mi200] Loxodromia 200.
Our favorites are BHASM and likeicare: listen to them in one of our next netwaves episodes!

In the same time the anglo-american netlabel Fwonk* published its 100th release with the simple title FWONK*100, an album with more experimental electronica.
Netwaves especially likes Dr. Nemmo, Katarrhaktes vs Per Byhring, and the funny cover of Edelweiss by the Stratosonics "Oidelweiss". Check our transmissions next weeks!

On 16�17 Nov. the first Indonesian Netaudio Festival will take place: "Logo ini adalah logo resmi yang akan dipergunakan untuk acara Indonesian Netaudio Festival. Indonesian Netaudio Festival ini direncanakan akan berlangsung pada tanggal 16 � 17 November 2012." The blog tells about the new logo, and apparently Wok The Rock from Indonesian famous netlabel Yes No Wave Music is strongly involved. We wish them a succesful festival from this side of the world.

Our radio-colleagues from the free music/free culture-focused radio-program Breitband celebrate their 5th birthday with a compilation "Best Of Breitband Vol. 5": nice title ;-)
Congrats folks!

There's a very interesting project going on: the foundation of a Creative Commons based collecting society: C3S - Cultural Commons Collecting Society. They make a public call to become a member as an artist and to sustain this project. I think this is an extensive subject that needs to be discussed and encouraged by every artist and organisation around, not engaging in industry, but rather in culture. I will certainly flattr this initiative and ask the people of CC Belgium what they think of this initiative.
Put this on your agenda!
