CC Hungary Says Happy New Year with a Remix Album Release

Jon Phillips, January 2nd, 2007

Creative Commons Hungary sent a nice happy new year wish to the Creative Commons community mailing list in the form of the first Hungarian CC licensed music album (all tracks are licensed under CC BY-NC 2.5 Hungary). CC Hungary’s Bodo Balazs says the remix album is made-up of “broken etno, beatbox’n’bass, world noise.”

The remix websites states:

In 2004 many bands, including the Beastie Boys, David Byrne, and Zap Mama, also released songs under CC licence on the Wired CD.The remix contest was such a hit that we are now trying to repeat this success in Hungary as well. And the jury! A bunch of musicians with international acclaim: DJ Vadim, Szakcsi Lakatos Béla, Mitsou and Dj Palotai!

This is an interesting album that is fusing localized acoustic Hungarian sounds with some electronically mediated cuts and breakbeats. Check it out!

ADVANCED: If you are using Unix/Linux, you can grab them all at once with this command:

wget -r ftp://ftp.mokk.bme.hu/Audio/nomada/vegleges_mp3/ -l 1
