Notes from the interview.

Berlin! the mecca of electronic music, but also a rock scene

Tom and Michael talk about Ireland just a bit.

Lived in Greece for 15 years

Michael also lived in the states for 10 years

Creative people more inclined to move.

A few Irish people in Berlin

Tell us about your music and tell us what’s new!
DJing twice a week to DJing once a month

producer first and foremost

started DJing in 2004

Wax Trax comes up again


My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult!_Records

“Man Should Surrender”

Ian MacKaye

Nothing too big on moving the DJing...mostly in Berlin. You have to 

The problem with bands is...

Dead Skulls -- Icelandic

“Never going to stop making music” -- Michael

Bandcamp is good.

Lovatt met people on Soundcloud...but focus is changing

not a community feeling anymore

Soundcloud tablet app is just resized

Soundcloud bringing subscription? Perhaps! soundcloud-may-become-paid-subscription-service

played at Soundcloud festival in Ireland

more comments in the past

Soundcloud getting into recommendations. Maybe that doesn’t work with music?

Bandcamp has good players

Discoverability was good on Soundcloud. Less good on bandcamp

Bandcamp does have fan version.

What drew you to Creative Commons?

Free Download:

One or two free tracks a year.

You get to see what people do with it!

Surfing with a GoPro

Albany rose garden tour

How do you even license things? Maybe we’ll talk about that on the Lawcast

copyright tied to death is morbid says Tom

Why do you use the the license you use?

let people use things!

Tom likes the two tracks a year concept.

Might as well be CC if you are giving it away!

What are your other projects, if any?

graphic designer by day!

radio jingles are disheartening!

Deeper Shades of House out at the end of June: itunes

broken beat techo

Brazilian trip hop with Brazilian singers!

Portuguese rap is good!

Urban Response:

Need a break from house and techno sometimes!

Just stop at the 90%! Mixing is hard!

Who are some people you think we should try to get on the show (aka, who are the important people in Creative Commons music today)?

Mick Chillage

Releasing some stuff...if she’s giving it away, do it under CC!

Closing Track: “Summer” CC BY-SA

or summer-feat-robyn-bromfield if you prefer bandcamp
