After two very special episodes, today we go back to a full music session. We have bedroom pop and undiscovered netlabels, as well as some older loves.

As my dissertation is coming to an end, I will continue to release new epiosdes of White Market Podcast on a weekly basis. I have a few interviews and features planned, and I still have a White Market in Context I’d like to share about the show in relation to its community. For now, I would like to express my tremendous gratitude towards all the interviewees in this season (so far), to Soundart Radio and Diane Gray for their immense help with the radio broadcast side of it, and, of course, to all the artists and labels that keep releasing their music under Creative Commons.

This week something quite unusual happened: I featured not only one but several netlabels that I had never played on the show. Netlabels used to be quite common when I first started the show in 2008, but with services like Bandcamp and Soundcloud, they seem to have fallen a bit out of place. There are exceptions, of course, but it’s almost ironic that the Netlabel Day initiative only became a thing last year. Maybe it’s just my European perspective. In fact, if we look at South America and Japan, the movement seems to be booming and netlabels are a crucial part of the local music scenes. And that can only be a good thing.

Today, we had a special session about the CC Summit 2015.

“The Global Summit brings together the community of experts, academics, and activists who comprise the Creative Commons affiliate network in a different country every two years.”*

CC Summit 2015 will take place in Seoul next week, from 14th to 17th of October. It’s a once-in-every-two-years event that brings Creative Commons enthusiasts, advocates and users together to share experiences, challenges and expectations regarding CC licences and everything that can be related to them. On this show, I had the great pleasure of talking to Paul Stacey, Senior Project Manager at Creative Commons HQ team and one of the people behind the organisation of this year’s CC Summit. We talked about some of the programme highlights, some of the challenges Creative Commons have yet to tackle and we also took the opportunity to talk a bit about the recently-funded Kickstarter project of writing a book about Open Business models, in which Paul is also involved. During the rest of the show, we brought to daylight some of the best free music on the web, as usual. This time with a lot of new releases!

You can find more about the summit here, and more about the book here.
