DJs free to remix & sell their creations under ‘Attribution Only’ licence

(December 24, 2017 - Winnipeg, Canada) – Merry Christmas, DJs! Electro-chill artists Ashes and Dreams have decided to give away the stems for their new album,Havana, under a Creative Commons’ Attribution Only license.

This means DJs can download and remix any of the 12 songs from the album, even sell their remixes, and owe nothing to the artist – as long as they include the band’s name and original song title in their remix.

The move to distribute the free stems fosters a spirit of collaboration Ashes and Dreams has been embracing over the past couple of years. The band previously partnered with international DJs in 2017 to remix it’s upbeat dance track, Gonna Work Out, resulting in 18 remixes from Austria to Australia. 

The new Havana remix rules are much more generous. 

“We pray to God that our new DJ friends will sell their remixes and make millions,” Ashes and Dreams’ guitarist & producer Liv Mircea says with a laugh. “If our name is there, all good.”

This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop

The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below). 

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is.

The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo.

Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop.

Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies.

It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs.

Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which is potentially painful to an earbud wearing listener.

Admittedly I am very sensitive to certain high pitch frequencies.

However, to remedy this I wo…

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.

A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.

A slice of swag…
