Tired of all the BS that goes along with copy-protected music? Sick of the RIAA using the money you spend on CDs to sue people?
It’s time to stop worrying about the RIAA and start worrying about how to pay for an iPod big enough to hold all the free music we’re going to hook you up with.
How does a month of free music sound? We’re going to feature free electronic music that you can download, burn, share and maybe even remix and sample. We’ll have electronica, techno, trance, ambient music, classical electronic music and all sorts of crazy sh## along the way.
All these artists distribute their music freely, most under a Creative Commons license. We’ll provide links to the artists’ sites, so you can get the details and download entire CDs of free music.
So bookmark this page, and get ready to discover a lot of cool free music, and to help support indie electronic musicians around the world.
