Is this music really free? Just download?.. Do i need to pay to play it in clubs?
Yes it's free. All tracks are released under a by-nc-nd creative commons license (unless otherwise specified), and are also all unsigned from any of those artist royalties ripoff associations. That means that it's free to download, distribute and broadcast without needing to pay anything to anyone, not even to the GEMA / RIAA / SPA / SGAE / TEOSTO / whatever. The only thing you can't do with it is claim ownership or release any derivatives commercially without the artists permission. All broadcasting and non profit distribution activity is perfectly legal and legislated.
Can i share these releases using bittorrent or other p2p applications?
Yes. We want our releases and artists to be known across the whole multiverse and beyond. So please _do_ abuse whatever independent distributing technology you see fit, including http, ftp, dcc, fserver, cdr, radiocast, webcast, bittorrent and whatever other p2p solution you can imagine. Just as long as you are not collecting money from our artists work, you're free to re-distribute it in any way you see fit.
This is great, how can i support you guys?
If you like a specific artist we encourage you to support them directly, check their myspace pages for special contributions and upcoming events. We will prepare ourselves to receive also paypals donatives to help promote de musicians (printing CDRs and DVDs to sell at a symbolic price, and so on).
