Paniq is a well known artist in the Creative Commons music scene. His new album is here. You can download it for free or a voluntary donation. It’s catchy tunes, heavy basslines go deep into your ears and will stay there forever and will create you a good mood.

The whole album was crowd funded. It was produced only with donations. Here’s the budget of €4588.

  • €1485/month for rent, food, insurances, repairs, electricity, internet and transit tickets.
  • €1000 for manufacturing of CDs, including glass master, digipak package and 4-colored booklet.
  • €1025 for packaging and national/international shipping of CDs.
  • €195 for compensating accumulating PayPal fees (about 3%)

Any money left after the production was given to Creative Commons, EFF and Amnesty International.

Fantastic, isn’t it? And even better, the whole album was released under a by Creative Commons license, so you can do whatever you like with the sounds.

The whole album was created on a Linux Audio infrastructure with a desktop computer running Ubuntu Linux, Ardour, Audacity, Aldrin, JACK, Jacker, QSynth and lots of plugins.

Nuff said. Here’s his old hit Elektronische Musik and the one and only paniq last.fm top 10. Enjoy. We’re loving it.

And don’t forget to drop a comment. The artists like feedback.
