Yes, it’s been a long, very long time since FrostClick released a mixtape with collaboration with FrostWire(the best downloader/music player out there to date). Actually it’s been nearly full 3 years. But we are back with some great selections.
The tracks on this year’s release cover the best of Creative Commons artists we featured here on the blog in the past year.

For all those of you following Kellee Maize and her releases here is something different. The independent rapper, singer, activist, and entrepreneur just released her new album, The Remixes, taking the nine of her greatest hits and taking them for another spin. The album is definitely one to bring you much needed energy for the day. Filled with great electronic arrangements and plenty of great beats there is just nothing more to add, so let’s start with a little preview.
In Tune is the first track to fully set you off on a journey through this new dance sound. It takes you up and down with its rising synths, just to drop down to uncover some great new beats and fully showcase Kellee’s lyrics.
I Insist starts off with more bass, quickly diving into the singer taking the floor, and returns to the unforgivable sound that floats between soulful sounds to drop-it-down beats.

Ain’t music produced better than with love?
This probably is the mantra of rising urban group Ain’t No Love, which, after wowing indie music fans with slicker-than-slick tunes via their self-titled EP, returns to FrostClick and FrostWire with a slightly moody yet incredibly delicious Tears of Joy.
Spreading their trademark “renegade pop” to audiences of other crowd-pleasers such as Iggy Azalea, Steve Aoki, and Calvin Harris, you bet your judgmental auditory senses that Saidah, Beanz, and 1990 aren’t amateurs – something that over 116,500 downloads of their first FrostWire feature Ain’t No Love EP can definitely attest to.

If you’re hoping to kick off 2014 with attitude, a fresh rap record might just do the trick.
Of course, FrostClick already has a collection in mind. That would be Hi-Rez‘s fifth and latest mixtape, Product of My Environment, which brims with a bravado and authenticity that we rarely see from urban releases nowadays. What gives?
Having went through an “extreme rough patch” for the past couple of years, the rapper has used his music as a sounding board to all his problems, resulting on a record that’s both heavily personal and unapologetically tongue-in-cheek at the same time.
Take the opening track, "Brandon Clark", for example. It boasts early 2000′s arrangement, bold lyrics, and crisp beats that easily puts it along the leagues of the catchiest hip-hop singles of the period. (50 Cent? Eminem?) You know, a period when songs actually had sense reading along a more relaxed path are the songs “Lifted” and “Love & Fear“, talking about the beauty of life and striving hard to achieve your goals.

That's right! 2012 is over! We've had another amazing ride this year: we've reviewed a new free & legal album download for you every day [yes, weekends too!] and promoted 23 hand picked artists with our sister software FrostWire. With thisFrostWire Creative Commons Mixtape Volume 3 we would like to celebrate over 2,1 million free and legal downloads [and still counting!] generated only in 2012 by our promotions and the many additional ones that came from all FrostClick readers who fell in love with new artists found though our site.
If we would have been distributing our promotions still on CDs and lined them up by the shorter end side by side, we would need 162 miles [or 260 kilometers] of road to do so!!!
If we would have been distributing our promotions still on CDs and had to manufacture them all, we would have ended up with over 290 thousand pounds [or 131 thousand kilograms] of plastic!
If one download would equal one fan and all our artists would do a concert together, they would fill more than 118 Madison Square Gardens to accomodate them all!!!

We just can't get enough of Carsie Blanton's sweet music. Her new album, Idiot Heart is like a tasteful dessert that melts in your mouth.
The Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter flawlessly blends country and pop music in this ten-track release. Compared to her first album Buoy, Idiot Heart offers a more upbeat vibe.
Blanton's passion and conviction to her music shines through in this collection. Smoke Alarm immediately charms the listener with funky guitar strings. Her soulful voice is a perfect contrast to the upbeat rhythm.
Idiot Heart hooks the listeners with an honest, innocent and raw confession on love. Blanton lays claim to emotional wounds and regrets, turning them into bittersweet melodies.
All in all, Carsie Blanton has crafted a rock-solid album that's not afraid to touch a softer spot.
