This week, I had the chance to talk to Maarten Zeinstra, from Amsterdam-based think tank Kennisland, to find out more about the project Copyright Exceptions. We already know copyright law is particularly complex, but things do get even more confusing once you look at the different regulations each one of the 28 European Union countries has.

On a completely different side note, I would like to thank to Starfrosch and Musique Libre for helping me out in finding the CC licence of This Mess is Mine release, which allowed me to play it on the show. They are both great resources if you’re into Creative Commons music, so make sure you check them out.

This week, the heat was out and about in the UK and everybody went mad. So, we decided to create a full playlist of nice, breezy, summery songs. We called it “Songs for the Heat”, but in reality it’s just a collection of feel-good tracks. There’s a bit for nearly every taste: new pop, ambient electronic, indie rock and even industrial cumbia (yes, for real). We hope these tunes guide you through the good vibes of summer time. We all deserve to finish a day with some relaxing songs.

Another relaxing evening on Spark Sunderland with a delightful soundtrack, straight from some of coolest netlabels around (even if some of them stopped publishing records). While I decided to let summer fade away smoothly, I also didn’t resist to add some more powered tracks into the mix. Also, September will be packed with surprises and great things on White Market, including some next week’s interview with FMA director, Cheyenne Hohman. Stay tuned!
