The Free Music Friday to beat them all is finally upon us. Happy Netlabel Day, everybody!
Serious gratitude and respect going out to Creative Commons Community Music Awards co-founder Douglas Whitfield for getting in touch with me last month to have this conversation about CC licenses, netlabels, and so much more. In part two of the interview, he talks about the CC Listening Parties that he co-hosts on YouTube alongside Donnie Ozone, an event that grew out of the artistic standstill caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. In addition, he shares some ambitious plans for a CC Community Music Hall Of Fame slated to premiere in 2026.
Once again, there's great music to accompany the conversation, including a single from Headsnack that blocSonic has released for this year's Netlabel Day. Other musical selections include the cabaret protest stylings of Carsie Blanton, the jazz meets electronic music musicianship of Revolution Void, the unbeatable hip-hop combination of CM & The Silent Partner, and a gorgeous after hours instrumental from Satori (taken from the new 20th Anniversary Compilation from Upitup Records).
Thank you so much for listening and I hope that you found this interview as informative as I did. Don't forget to head on over to the Netlabel Day site and discover more great music!
