THE STORY :
Summer 2009 : LibreCommeLair (LCL), a french online music label, opens a free creative commons sound bank filled by the artists who collaborated or released on the label.
To spread the new, the label decides to organize a remix contest based on the sound bank.
January 2011 : The contest entries are now closed, we were initialy supposed to make a pre-selection of the tracks we received, but we just couldn't because of the variety and quality of tracks : dub, reggae, electroacustic, d'n'b, house, electronica... So we let the Jury decide !
Speaking about it, a jury composed of Netaudio and Creative Commons music actors will make a final selection that will be released as a compilation on LibreCommeLair.
The Jury will be : FreeMusicArchive, Notheen, Subflow, DivergenceFM, INQ, Netwaves, Netaudio Berlin, AQuietBump, iD.EOLOGY and Dogmazic.
Here are all the tracks in competition for your listening (and downloading) pleasure, if you want to learn more about the artists, you will find bios and links on this soundcloud page : http://soundcloud.com/la-boite-a-sons

LCL netlabel just released the second volume of hte "Recto Versus" serie, where an artist from the label remixes and is remixed by other musicians, coming from LCL or invited.
After Volfoniq on volume 1, the second opus of the "Recto Versus" serie puts an artist from the label at the center of a vast collaborative work that lasted for one year and spreads over several countries.
The aim of the project is to push further the use of creative commons licences and promote them widely, while exploring all the aspects of a musician style with his own eyes and foreign ones.
Arrogalla involved several artists from Sardegna (his birthplace) that produce folk related electronic music just like him, as well as european, american and asian producers from various musical styles.
Thru 20 tricky tracks, together, they expose their vision of a generous and universal musical language, using numerous sonic vocables : dub, ska, lofi, dubstep, minimal, electronica, chiptune, funk, deviant hiphop, grime ...
