Captive Portal's playful EP, Toy Sounds Vol. 1

Toy Sounds, Vol. 1 is like espresso for your headphones (or at least a sugar buzz)! This jaunty electronic album will scratch your mid-tempo itch and sports a few crispy samples here and there to liven it up even more. Build-ups, bouncy beats, and bubbly bass bump along while high-end drips and drops keep things moving at a quick pace. This belongs in every video game enthusiast's collection or anyone looking for fast-paced electronic tracks to keep them company at work or at play.

The latest release to FMA from the prolific Chicagoan, Captive Portal, is the 19th album he's added to FMA - we can't wait to hear what he comes up with next!

Jupiter Freak Show

Ladies and gentlemen, dear listeners and lovers of free music, welcome!

Let me present you my new project in progress: "The New Freak Shows" with a first track freely inspired by "American Horror Story: Freak Show".

This first track is called "Jupiter Freak Show" because the show of Elsa Mars (portrayed by the amazing Jessica Lange) is in the city of Jupiter, Florida.

"Jupiter Freak Show" is composed in the style of the music of the opening theme of this tv series.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, don't be scared and please, listen to "Jupiter Freak Show"!

Thank you for listening!

PS: I'm French so I may do some spelling mistakes...

Boot Magna by Lazy Salon

Boot Magna by Lazy Salon

Now available on FMA, the 2018 'Boot Magna' releases by New Jersey's Lazy Salon (aka Sean Byrne).  Boot Magna is a compilation of new works in progress, remixes of existing Lazy Salon tracks, and unreleased elements from the archives.  All instrumental, all psychedelic and all created through a process of merging recent & older elements to create new music.

The 'Sets' version of Boot Magna presents the music as two seamless 20 minute mix sets, while the 'Tracks' version breaks out each of the 10 pieces for ala carte digestion.

Set 1 (or Tracks 1-5) is a dancefloor-friendly sequence of 120bpm songs and remixes.  

Set 2 (or Tracks 6-10) represent the more ambient and spaced-out aspects of the project.

Musiio Playlist 10 #FunnyWind

 

Here at Musiio we’re constantly testing and fine-tuning our A.I. to make sure that it is functioning at optimal capacity. In one of our usual testing sessions I noticed that it can pick out certain instruments and styles of playing really well.

In these tracks picked out by our A.I. we have bands inspired by Balkan brass orchestras and swinging early 20th century jazz. Disparate scenes far apart but all featuring the same fun and joyous sound of wind instruments!

Cascade Event

Is it possible for an expanding capitalist economy to remain within safe ecological limits or is it doomed to fail ? Capitalism requires constant growth, profit and production with an increasing population to remain stable. Without sufficient consumption, which creates more demand for production, the cycle would be frozen and capitalism would fail. These mechanisms do not provide incentives for preserving the environment and it falls victim to this compulsive behavior. Is the sharing economy an answer. Is Free Music Archive an example of sharing yet still giving listeners options to support the artist to keep making music.

Use the discount code 'dask' on bandcamp if you want the higher quality flac or 24 bit flac versions of these albums on FMA (Excludes Syngate Records Releases).

New album of Strange Songs

Some Strange Songs I recorded a while ago which originally appeared on different albums. I've since decided they should all go together as one compilation.
