LCL is for " LibreCommeLair "
(ex "Les Cristaux Liquident")
Three letters, and a whole programm :
a Creative commons netlabel, organizing cultural events (festival Lacerta vitis, Dub en sauce or Libre session party) working with artists on multimedia projects, participating or supporting other musical events...
Founded in 2003, LCL believes that sharing is an essential tool of culture, the basic of its language. Open licenses are for this ideal, and the NTI are the dreamed vector for spreading this spirit.
LCL musical line is mainly dub (and all its variables), but more than a precise musical style, it's first a state of mind that defines our netlabel.
Over the technical qualities (that remain important, but not in the first place) we are looking for musical originality and personality, mind opening and a serious taste for collaborations.

Mysterious rootsstep producer from Berlin, Germany, "Don Goliath" contacted us a few monthes ago to ask us to make a selection from his vaults.
So that's from about 250 earthshaking tunes that we picked only 12 to build "Rootsstep Colossus", an ode to this not-so-known (and should-be-more) genre of dub.
We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do !
Here is the release page on FMA :Don Goliath : Rootsstep Colossus

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
