White Market is a radio show and a podcast about netaudio, non-copyrighted music and free culture. It's a show by Rute Correia and the natural successor of Programa Marca Branca*. Since netaudio is naturally intertwined with other movements and ideologies such as Demoscene and Open Source, the show will also often feature these and similar forms of activism related to digital rights and freedom, featuring occasional support from Pedro Lopes.
Our promise to deliver netaudio music and raise free culture awareness is also stated on our collection on Free Music Archive. You can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, listen to us on Mixcloud and, last but not the least, you can also listen to some of our old podcasts on Internet Archive.
If you're into radio, you can also listen to us every Sunday at 8pm (UK time) on Spark FM.
White Market is a completely independent and volunteer-based project.
*Between 2008 and 2013, Programa Marca Branca was the only regular Portuguese radio show exclusively dedicated to netaudio and free culture, with weekly podcasts and features about this digital universe. The show was brodcast on five different radio stations in Portugal and Spain. The project had to go on hold at the end of 2013.

We were kind of shocked when we found out Metastaz works were not yet on Free Music Archive. Needless to say, we solved the problem. As for today, his albums "Orient Dub Express" and "Encounters" can be freely streamed and downloaded through FMA.

For the past 30 years, hip-hop has been the musical language of struggle: no matter what you’re rapping about lyrics tend to be some kind of personal statement. Although it was born in the US, throughout the years hip-hop has been adapted and reinvented a bit all over the world. Its sound has also evolved collecting both global and local influences. However, one of the features that seem to be perpetuated along the way is the use of the mother tongue regardless of the place you’re at. Portugal is no exception.
