This week we dive into yet another music-only session! From hip-hop to post-rock, from new music to great throwbacks, this episode come jam-packed with amazing tunes to suit all your needs. This episode also marks the beginning of a new feature called “Starfrosch Hot Track of the Week“, which is a collaboration with Starfrosch. If you want to know more about their Creative Commons chart, make sure you listen to our interview with Markus Koeller.

Following the reveal of the EU Copyright Reform Proposal, this show had to feature it. The text is a disappointment, but there’s still a lot that can be done to make it change. The piece is available for separate download in a variety of formats, so make sure you share it, remix it, use it for whatever you need, just spread the word!

We also went aboard the public domain ship, once again, and found a bit more about “The Little Prince”. Last but not the least, we brought you more than a handful of awesome free tracks – most of them with permissions for remixing.

You might have noticed that the podcast was only made available a few days later than usual. That’s because our slot on Spark Sunderland has moved to Sundays at 9pm.

With great records and amazing throwbacks, this week’s session was all about free music. We visited some of the best (in)active netlabels, played some records that were just sort ot out of the press and heard songs in Swedish, Ukrainian and Spanish. This on top of the usual English-sung tracks, of course. This was also a particularly rich session in terms of music genres, as we covered a hand-full of them: indie, rock, pop, house and even tango.
