2010 Favorites from Cameron Parkins of Creative Commons

End of year music lists are always incredibly difficult and 2010 is no different. More than ever it feels like there was a new release every day and a new artist to check out every week - keeping up with the pace can be daunting for even the most seasoned music lover. As such this mix is by no means exhaustive - rather, it highlights some of my own personal favorites from the past year. All of these tracks are available here on the FMA along with a vast catalog of other CC-licensed music - so listen, explore, and digest what has been a great year for progressive, independent music.

Creative Commons Presents: Machtdose's Mix

Continuing Creative Commons' guest curation series at the Free Music Archive is Machtdose, a German podcaster with an incredible ear for CC-licensed music. A feature in Phlow Magazine gives some welcome background on the Machtdose team, framing the influences - musically and otherwise - at work in their mix. From Machtdose:

The Machtdose team is honored to be invited to the Creative Commons curation project at the Free Music Archive.

We discovered the wonderful world of netaudio and netlabels some years ago. From the start we were fond of the idea of freely distributed music and how Creative Commons gave license models for it. Since 2005 we have done a monthly podcast, presenting our favorite tracks from netlabels all over the world. The netlabel scene is so rich in terms of sounds, styles and personalities that we're always coming back for more..

Our selection highlights some of the true gems we found over the last years. We recommend not only the single tracks but especially the full albums where we have taken them from - they are all worth a full listening. Enjoy!
