Funky Remixes

This one looks very interesting: Funky Remixes: “A Free and Legal Music Source | Free Remixes… Listen, Download, Rip, Remix and Share: artists like the Beastie Boys, Chuck D, David Byrne, Paul Westerberg and many others are mixing up the copyright laws of music. They want you to have free access to music.

Why? To allow fans and musicians to rip, remix and share music, free and legally, in support of ongoing music creation, promotion and evolution.

A copyright revolution, fueling a music evolution.”

The site seems young still, but looks like it will be worth following, although I prefer sites with remix packs rather than only finished mixes. Found a great David Byrne tune there.

Medl remix contest

From vocoid.com : “Medl is giving you a chance to make a new melody with medly. Using the great Creative Commons tools at ccMixter, we’re releasing the parts from all the tracks on our album, Medly, for your mixing and mashing pleasure. Use the raw audio to come up with a new take on our track, and if we like it, we’ll include it in a remix compilation.”

ccMixter – best general purpose remixing site?

This remixing site may very well be the best general purpose remixing site out there at the moment. I think the licensing concept is spot on. It allows music to flourish legally, while optionally preserving commercial rights for original artists and remixers alike:

ccMixter “… is a community music site featuring remixes licensed under Creative Commons, where you can listen to, sample, mash-up, or interact with music in whatever way you want.

Remixers If you’re into sampling, remixing and mash-ups grab the sample packs and a cappellas for download and you can upload your version back into ccMixter, for others to enjoy and re-sample. All legal.”
