ArtisTech Media’s music network is built on collaboration through open music and the universal language.
collaborate & create
ArtisTech Media operates ccMixter,org — a global community of artists who create exceptionally great music, all via collaboration. Our musicians continually build upon a large library of original stems, vocals and mixes (under Creative Commons licenses) that are featured in thousands of YouTube videos, podcasts, remixes, and videogames — around the world. ArtisTech Media curates collections of the community’s library — we recommend listening on Bandcamp.
create with other musicians
ccMixter’s collaborative platform facilitates synergy with musicians — globally. Contribute your original vocals and samples — or search the ccMixter library for vocals and stems to use in your own song production. Participate in remix events with relevant world themes and get featured in playlists, albums or Editorial Picks.
royalty free licenses
All of our tracks and music libraries are shared under varying Creative Commons licenses — which allow free use with Attribution and proper commercial use. If you need permissions beyond the Creative Commons license an artists assigned to their track, no problem! Our royalty-free licenses last a lifetime, are affordable (a steal really!) and super simple to buy.
