L.A.-based record label and former Featured Commoner Vosotros just went live with their latest release ¡ YES WE PUEDE !, a compilation of artists covering American public domain classics in honor of next week’s Presidential inauguration. The album features some amazing L.A. artists and is released under a CC BY-NC license, allowing others to share and remix the tracks for noncommercial purposes as long as Vosotros and the artists are properly attributed.
Choosing CC for the project is in spirit with the incoming administration’s license use. ¡ YES WE PUEDE ! joins DJ Z-Trip’s Victory Lap in the “awesome CC-licensed music inspired by the Barack Obama” category.

After hearing his massively successful Obama Mix, MoveOn.org contacted DJ Z-trip to create a new “Victory Lap” mix celebrating Barack Obama’s election for the inauguration. Just as he did with his original mix, Z-trip has licensed his new mix one under our Attribution license, allowing anyone to reuse, remix and share it, even commercially.Comments Off on DJ Z-Trip’s Victory Lap: The Second Obama Mix
The legendary mashup DJ Z-Trip has released a new mix under our Attribution license intended to help garner support for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Z-Trip’s Obama Mix is a recording of the set he’s been playing at recent fundraisers he’s organized with the artist Shepard Fairey (creator of the ubiquitous OBEY campaign and more recently, the Obama HOPE posters). Z-Trip wants you to push the mix as far and wide as possible so it makes sense he chose our least restrictive license:
I encourage you to download it and pass it along to anyone you think should hear it. Feel free to burn copies, share it with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and especially anyone you know is on the fence about this election. I’m also putting out a radio friendly version, in case anyone wants to broadcast it.
Regardless of your political affiliation, the mix deserves a listen for anyone interested in political speech and sound. Download Z-Trip’s mix here.1 Comment »
