I’m currently listening to n0theen. It’s a netaudio stream, meaning that it’s like radio over the internet but without moderation. Just one song after another.

They say that they are only playing “opensource audio”. I’m not sure if it’s the correct term, because there is only very few open-source audio on the web. Open-source in the sense, that you can actually get the sources of the song, like stems, samples or project files. I guess what they mean is music published by netlabels which you can normally get as free downloads.

There is music from lots of genres. Most of the songs are instrumental and kind of electronic: Minimal, IDM, etc., but there’s also Rock. It’s great for just playing in the background while you’re doing other stuff. Like me writing this post.

On the website you can find a playlist with the last 20 tracks which were played. In case you liked a song really much, go to the website, look it up and search for it on the internet. Chances are that you’ll find a free and perfectly legal download.

I haven’t heard them playing any annoying music so far, so maybe you’d like to give it a try.

Today moby announced the release of his new album “Destroyed” which will come out around the middle of may. He describes it as broken down melodic electronic music for empty cities at 2 a.m.

In addition he released a three track EP called “Be The One” as a free download. A confirmation e-mail with the download link will be sent to your e-mail address … like it seems to be common usage when commercial artists give away some of their music for free.

For each of the three tracks from the EP, moby made a video clip consisting of shots me made with a little camcorder while traveling. All are linked in his blog post. One of them is here:

You can download the new single for free from their website. But only for 48 hours which probably started sometime on Feburary 9th. So be quick.

You have to leave a valid e-mail address because the download link will be sent to it. Moreover you have to enter a date of birth and a country.

Only a few minutes ago I found this mix by “Death To The Throne“. He took part in Metric’s remix contest and won the Grand Prize for his remix of “Twilight Galaxy“. Awesome!

He put his mix on SoundCloud where you can download it.

I found another cool track on SoundCloud. It’s not Creative Commons licensed, but available for download anyway.
