ccCommunity End of 2015 Mix

Photo by amy_buthod via Flickr.

Rather than "Top [insert number] Best Albums of 2015" we've decided to take a different angle. Rather than ranking tracks or adding unnecessary 'clout' to specific albums, artists, or songs, we're sharing these in no particular order. You can decide which ones you like best! 

This is the third of an ongoing series. Look for upcoming lists as 2016 draws closer.

Now, a bit about this mix, and who made it:

ccCommunity is a special page that holds some of the most diverse content on FMA - because it's stuff that doesn't come in affiliated with a pre-existing FMA curator. Our curators work with their own group of artists, and while that's super awesome, it's also super awesome to let unaffiliated artists share their work once in a while. When an artist contacts FMA directly and their work is accepted by our reviewers, their first upload is placed in the ccCommunity curator page.

We had a really hard time choosing just 15 songs by 15 artists! We tried to keep it diverse, with tracks ranging from chiptunes to rap to death metal. And trust us, there's lots lots more out there (including this noteworthy bundle: the Loop Mania Sampler Pack). If you like one of these songs, check out the artists' full album pages!

Here are 15 dazzling and diverse tracks from the ccCommunity at large. Listen or download in our handy sidebar player to the right, or see the playlist page for more.

Creative Commons, the global nonprofit that makes it easier for creators to share their work under simple copyright terms, announced a major milestone in the release of its 2015 State of the Commons Report today: more than 1 billion works have been licensed using Creative Commons since the organization was founded.

 

This milestone was announced along with other significant data points in its State of the Commons report, which covers the growth of CC content on platforms, the globalization of CC tools, and cultural trends in the digitization of creative works.
