Dig it: You Already Have Permission

The ccMixter admin team has been working hard behind the scenes to upgrade the pathways you need to get the music you want.  Most of you already know, "You already have permission."  Now, with that permission, comes easier access and searching capabilities for you, the listener.  At ccMixter, we're breaking down the barriers to entry, not putting them up.  It's always been that way.  No logins, no fees.  Just the best cutting edge remix music in the world.

It's frustrating trying to find that perfect song for your video, your playlist, podcast, or shout out.  It can take hours and hours of searching, and most sites want your information more than they want to provide the song you need.  That's why we've updated our search and download UI, for mixes, pells, and samples.  Now more than ever, it's easy to quickly find a creative commons (cc) licensed track that you can download immediately and get on with your next move.

As a remix artist, I know.  I've spent countless nights searching for that one sound, that one melody or bed track for podcasts and mixes I produce.  Eyes watering, and back aching until the right track is uncovered.  That's how I discovered ccMixter and I've been here ever since. ccMixter has great experimental selections, blues, jazz, and instrumental remixes that brought me back time and again for what I needed.  Then I started giving back, with my own creations.

That's what this creative commons cultural revolution is all about.  Discovering and rediscovering the power of new music.  So try out the new tools and get back with us.  We want to make it even easier for you to get the right track, to get in the mix, and to share it with the world.  

You already have permission!
