First four Revitty Remixes

Written by Herra Paalanen on Sunday, May 10th, 2009


Tweet Time for a quick update and showcase of the remixes in thus far! We’ve received four mixes so far, and it’s been nice to see the song go into so many decidedly different directions. Here we go. The first remix (download) came to us from Lacuna Origin, and boy, it’s a slow and heavy […]

Remix us?

Written by Älymystö on Wednesday, March 25th, 2009


Tweet Right, we mentioned this on the Band Camp report, but now we can actually go ahead with this. We’re putting the unmixed tracks for an upcoming tune called Revitty online for remixing. We hesitate to call this a competition, since music is never one, but we’d love to send some swag to the remixes […]

Tweet Exhibit B, your honour. Last year Trent Reznor pulled a coup and released five CD’s worth of material for free under a CC license. The first batch of these was a four CD collection of instrumental material – not radio friendly pop to say the least. So how’d that gambit work out? In case […]

Tweet In 2004, a man named Chris Anderson came up with a theory he was calling The Long Tail. It was an idea of the future of shopping in the environment where shelf space is unlimited – that is, of course, online. Mr. Anderson’s theory dictated that in the future people will start buying a […]

Free music from Singularity Jones

Written by Herra Paalanen on Tuesday, December 16th, 2008


Tweet Because we also love free music that doesn’t involve the words “invitation-only beta”. The (awesomely named) band Singularity Jones have done a nice thing and put their Falling off the face of the Earth EP up for grabs on the internets. Shoegazey e-bow and delay workouts sound like just the thing on these grey […]

Music consumption sucks

Written by Herra Vuorensola on Monday, December 15th, 2008


Tweet Making an Internet service that just works is both hard and rare. Think FaceBook: what an enormous amount of totally useless crap around the fact that it’s a communication channel with people I know. It’s even harder and rarer when working on a media format that’s known for complicated copyright issues – that’s books, […]
